Beautiful Trail Horse
Jazz (her registered name is Invite a Sweet Nite) is a kind mare and very intelligent. She was shown before I got her and has points, but I just do not know what she was shown in or how many points she has. She walks, trots, canters, backs up. She yields to pressure and we have been working on refreshing her sidesteps and yielding her hind quarters under saddle. She does not kick, bite, or crib. She does have some history of abuse, however, and this has given her a couple vices, as follows. She is cinchy from being handled roughly and needs gentle, patient handling when saddling her because she gets nervous and scared. (She does ride bareback and seems to enjoy this very much.) Jazz is also a little slow to open up to people and can be a little standoffish until she gets to know you, but if someone is willing to spend the time in gaining her trust you can just see her eyes brighten. She is passionate about neck rubs and adores being scratched and rubbed in that good spot.
Since a back injury about three years ago, I have not been able to give her the time and attention she needs and she has slipped a little in her training. She is not spooky on the trails and with a little TLC she would make a great trail prospect or perhaps even competitive trail riding! Recommended an intermediate to expert rider, someone who is confident to handle a nervous horse on the ground, experienced in natural horsemanship. She is currently barefoot and has been for the past two years.
