Gloria's Choice is a 2007 Thoroughbred mare who stands approx 16hh. She was adopted out from New Stride Thoroughbred Society back in 2011, but unfortunately her owner will be leaving the country for a while and so Glory will be coming into the rescue to find a new home.
She is good for the farrier, loads and hauls without an issue and is perfect to catch. She has good ground manners and has had lots of natural horsemanship done with her. She isn't super dominant so she gets along with other horses too.
She is broke to ride and is very well-trained, but does need an experienced rider. She is very healthy, but did have a previous injury that prevents her from being able to do hard riding such as jumping, but she would make an excellent pleasure mount for someone. She can be ridden 3x per week comfortably and goes walk, trot and canter.
Her previous owner says she is "amazing on trails and even did some cattle herding up at [her] aunt's ranch. She loves attention and even knows hand signals/verbal commands. She is spirited, but with a myler bit and some bonding she is perfect".
