Fantastic Arabian trail horse
Taj has traveled extensively, tackling very rugged terrain, spending
nights on high lines or tied to a trailer on some occasions. Taj's ground
manners are excellent! She ties, loads, bathes, stands quietly for the
vet and farrier. She has no vices and attaches herself to \"her\"
person completely. Taj has low caloric requirements and does not do
well on lush pasture or too much hay. She has a good health record with
no colic, laminitis or founder, and is not Cushings or IR. She likes
to ride hard on the trail and does better with a rider that really
likes to cover ground - and no, I don't mean run everywhere, I just
mean go out and do STUFF. The more difficult her terrain or pace, the
more she shines. She rides bitless or with a hackamore. She's sure -
footed, sensible, and thinks she's part mountain goat. She tackles hills
very well and will cross any obstacle, even if she has to swim it.
Having been trained strictly by the tenants of NH, she expects quiet
leadership from her riders, and so does best with riders who understand
that concept. She does not do well with timid or \"busy\" riders;
they make her anxious and unsure. Though she's a good, solid horse,
she doesn't have the mindset to be a good horse for novices, but her
rider doesn't necessarily need to be polished.
