Maiden is a Thoroughbred mare as a 1997 mare by Valley Crossing, which would make her 15 years old. She had 14 starts, her last race being in 2000. She is very quiet and willing with a rider. She appears to have had a baby last year, so she has probably had some time off, but she was very well mannered and stood still for mounting, moved off my leg, etc. Was easy to catch in the field, bridle and handle. Very zen girl. Sound and sane. Perfect for an advanced beginner. She is good on the ground and easy to handle, lead, load, haul, etc.
