Mare for Sale in Marana, AZ
✨Dixie✨ 8-9yr grade bay mare with slight roan coloring. Very nice build/confirmation. She is WICKED SMART and is pretty in your pocket once she warms up to you. She is green broke, no buck. Used as a barrel horse and sat for a year or so before I got her. I’ve done a lot of ground work with her and ridden her a number of times. She will back up with out a halter, puts her nose in the halter for you. Takes the bit well. Picks up all four feet but can be hesitant to pick up her backs. Does well with farrier but gets impatient after a while. She loads in a slant well! But it may take a second for her to get comfortable loading occasionally. Has a really nice stop, naturally works off her hind end. Soft in the mouth. Perfect with fly masks/sheets. Perfect with any kind of boots. She will walk up to you to be caught. Saddles well. She is pretty buddy sour and gets very anxious when she’s alone. She can be testy at times but is not dangerous or mean. She just had her teeth done, and was recently wormed. She is currently barefoot and sound. She has a ton of potential, but does need some tuning. I really would love to keep this sweet girl, however I don’t have the time it would take to get her to where I need her right now. Must go to a good home!
