Adopted: August 10, 2015
Cooper has been doing great at her new home so far. They are impressed with how much she has come along already! She is still getting settled in with the herd, but we have no doubt she will be just fine. Her adopter's husband has already claimed her as "his horse" :)
AGE: 8 y/o (DOB: May 3, 2004)
RIDER LEVEL: Intermediate
SUITABILITY: English/Western Pleasure, Endurance, Dressage, Trail, etc
ADOPTION FEE: $500
Snuggles is an 8 year old, 16hh Standardbred mare born 05/03/2004. She had 46 starts in her career earning $22,303 and was last raced in 2009. She is an owner surrender as her owner could no longer afford her care.
She is a very sweet girl. She is broke to ride and walks, trots and canters, has been on trails and moves off the leg. We were told she can be a little nervous out on trails alone, but otherwise, is a great mare. No bolt, buck, rear or spook; she just stops and looks.
She is still a little green and needs some reassurance, but she has a great base. She loves leg and moves off of it very nicely and is very soft in her mouth. She would be suitable for an intermediate level rider who is soft in their hands and has a good seat. She would make a great low-level Dressage prospect or English or Western pleasure partner.
NOTE: She was adopted through Greener Pastures - BC Standardbred Horse Adoption Society previously. Check out the videos of her when she was with them below. She has of course, come a ways in her training since then, but she was a nice girl already!
Here is a video of her via Greener Pastures from back in 2010:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11F4vlQYH7c
