"Call Gale" is a 2008 Standardbred mare around 14.2hh. She was on her way for meat, but now has a chance at a new life. She last raced on April 19 with 14 starts in her career, but was too slow. She retired sound and has clean legs and a great build. She is easy to handle, gets along with other horses, leads, loads, is good for the farrier, etc.
She has been started under-saddle and is going very well. She can go out solo and has a sure-footed, ground-eating gait. She is quiet as a clam for tacking and mounting and is a very smart girl. She is responsive to the rein, only needing a light touch, and is learning how to move off the leg nicely. She is a little lookie in new environments, but not spooky or nervous. She is willing and focused and does great in the ring or on the trails. She is good with dogs barking, horses racing around, etc and has no problem walking over poles, through mud, water and bridges.
She is a very athletic mare and would make a great endurance prospect, but she can go in just about any direction! She is available for adoption on-site and is best suited for an intermediate to advanced rider until she has a few more miles on her.
