Spotted Saddle Mare for Sale in Jamestown, TN
Due to not wanting her to go to waste sitting in my field, this mare is available for an experienced rider. Here is her story. I've had her for 6 years, I believe she was broke with less than kind methods - ear twitched, harsh bit, spurs, etc and if handled in this manner would IMO resist . She has been my main ride for 6 years, for me she will go anywhere I "ask". She has a "top mare" attitude so if/when she sees/hears/smells something on a trail ride that she thinks might be a problem, she will stop. I give her time to process, then ask for movement. This has never failed me. I ride with a mild broken leverage bit, loose rein for walk and contact for gait or canter. She prefers to be in front for the first 15-20 minutes of a ride and does best in smaller groups. I per
... more»sonally don't like large group rides so she has no experience with them. She is UTD on worming, current coggins and shots. Good for a patient farrier but, as already mentioned, any type "temper/attitude" might result in resistance. Loads willingly into a step-up trailer, backs out if asked. Easy keeper, minimal grain with 24/7 hay. My personal preference is netted round bales as we have little pasture which I reserve for a "treat" after riding. Smooth trail racking gait - does canter/gallop and will jump trail obstacles but I don't do either often enough to have trained for them specifically. Since I am a calm, relaxed and experienced rider and she does well with me, I think this is the type rider she would work for the best. She is NOT a cuddly love bug - the occasional pat/stroke on the head or neck is sufficient for her but Cookies grease the wheels of cooperation. She is a lady taking treats. IF interested I will provide details of anything about this mare, good or not -- looking for a partnership that works for both horse and rider
About Jamestown, TN
Jamestown was established in 1823 as a county seat for Fentress County. It was incorporated as a city in 1837. Both Fentress County and Jamestown are named for prominent local politician James Fentress (1763–1843), who made the appeal for the new county to be carved out of Overton and Morgan counties. Jamestown was built upon the site of a semi-permanent Cherokee village, which probably made use of the many natural rock shelters in the area. Before the founding of Jamestown, the area was known as "Sand Springs" for the many bubbling springs located within the city.
