SWEET LADYBUG (11 yrs. old – 14.2 – 1/2 Hands)…..NECK REINS!!!! —-is a really pretty mare that has been on the trails all of her life!!  She is VERY experienced!   Lady has been on long camping trips,….in the hills, creeks, woods, and it very careful stepping when on challenging trails!  She “absolutely stands still” to mount from the mounting block, ground, or whatever you are mounting from!  After mounting, she stands there and waits for you to tell her to move…..no matter where you are!!!  She is amazing with doing this!!!!

We have switched Lady out with three different groups, and she was the boss with two groups…….And really odd, the third group she was the lowest on the totum pole —-  they are just different!  With different horses!     Lady will ride out alone without hesitation!  She will walk very, very slow all day long,…..or go into her nice easy gait.  Lady has a very smooth ride and would be wonderful for Special Needs especially those that have difficulty mounting a horse.   She rides double….bareback…..and she is easy to catch.  She is more responsive to girls and women.  Probably because she has been with a family with all girls……..Lady is VERY!!!  Affectionate!!!  She will lower her head to small children.  She will stand there until you walk away when petting.

 Lady will ride in a group or out alone.  She will go off on a different path when riding with a group without hesitation.  She is not afraid of anything……we have really tried……..Lady will cross deep creeks and ditches,……just walks right through wherever you point her.   She is VERY calm and quiet with still-like movements.  Lady is very patient in the crossties…..will stop – stand – and wait forever!!!  Will not move until you tell her to move with all things!!!!!!   I love that about her!

She is just unbelievable with doing this every single time!!   Lady walks right on the trailer —She loves her baths —-we have several videos on youtube. Com – showing saddle and bridle being put on her – and – SEVERAL vides of her gait, that are too large to download on Horsetopia.     She is a really wonderful mare…..smooth riding……she listens and she absolutely stops on voice command.
