CC Ryder is an approx 24 year old Quarter Horse mare who stands 15hh. Hear old Quarter Horse mare who stands 15hh. Her owners have had her for the last 4 years and was ridden by a 15 year old girl with Downs Syndrome for the last 2 years for showmanship doing walk and trot.
A few months ago the daughter was losing strength and so they needed to get her a smaller mount, and so they gave CC back to the farm they got her from. Unfortunately, after a few weeks the farm decided they did not want her and so she went back to her family, but they no longer have the space for her with their new addition so she has come here to find a new home instead.
CC is healthy and in good physical condition. She is sound though has some arthritis, but is currently ont affect her. She has great feet and is currently barefoot. She would be a great mare for someone with kids or someone who wishes to do some quiet riding. She has quite a life of service under her belt; rumor is that she used to be a lesson horse and did jumping in her prime. She has a smooth trot and nice lope and is sound for light riding. She does well on the roads and in the ring.
She has not done much this year, but she is very gentle and patient. She has good ground manners, but is not a “leader”. She is said to feel somewhat insecure without a confident rider, but has no buck or bolt and is patient and well behaved with beginners.
