Sweet breeding stock APHA mare who would be an excellent candidate for EAGALA/hippotherapy program. She was just diagnosed with ringbone and due to a bone spur that affects her joint the treatment options are limited and would be best suited for ground work or as a companion horse. She is 17yrs old, 15.3ish hands, When she was younger and sound she was used in Pony Club, 4-H, and as a lesson horse. She still is being used for some light riding, and with proper hoof care & Equioxx she may still be able to continue that for a while. Respectful on the ground, has a background in natural horsemanship and was shown/trained in showmanship so also pretty responsive on the ground. Adores human interaction and very good with children. Easy keeper, currently barefoot.
She is being offered as a FREE LEASE with a contract as I want to keep tabs on her and will provide a place for her to come back to should she not work out. References will be required.

Happy to provide more information, could write a book about her, but decided to refrain for now ;)

NOTE: She is not at risk of getting into a bad situation and if we don't find a reputable program for her she will retire with me or my parents. Just figured if she can be of help to kids/adults participating in hippotherapy that I would put the offer out there.
