Mare for Sale in Tucson, AZ
$2500 OBO (willing to trade for an older or calmer horse) We have for sale a rescued mare who is now rehabilitated and ready to go to a forever home. She may have some experience in the rodeo and she is definitely very energetic now that she has her health back. She is a five year old who may have had a foal before. She had her teeth floated for the first time in July 2019 and is completely up to date on her shoots and medical needs. She has been socialized to humans (including children since she was rescued by a school), can be lead by a halter and knows how to lunge. She has been ridden and will let you saddle her. We have given her a lot of love and want her new family to continue to love her and help her get back to the healthy, happy horse she once was. She does need a family wh
... more»o will be able to exercise or work with her daily as she is young and has a lot of energy. She is very smart and can be trained. She does have two behavioral issues that we have been working with and as long as you keep working with her I’m sure she will get over them. She refuses to lift her front left leg for picking and will get upset. She needs a strong person who can lift and hold it without letting it go (we had gotten her to the point where she would lift it without any trouble but then after a long ferrier visit she regressed). She spooks and does a bucking/jumping thing which has happened with a rider on her (never happened with children just adult riders). Please feel free to contact me if you have questions, would like more pictures or videos, or would like to see her. I will continue to work with her and hopefully she will find a wonderful forever home!
About Tucson, AZ
The Tucson area was probably first visited by Paleo-Indians, who were known to have been in southern Arizona about 12,000 years ago. Recent archaeological excavations near the Santa Cruz River found a village site dating from 2100 BC. The floodplain of the Santa Cruz River was extensively farmed during the Early Agricultural Period, circa 1200 BC to AD 150. These people constructed irrigation canals and grew corn, beans, and other crops, while also gathering wild plants and nuts, and hunting. The Early Ceramic period occupation of Tucson saw the first extensive use of pottery vessels for cooking and storage.
