Adopted: September 30, 2015
Sweetpea has been adopted by a wonderful family and is doing great in her new home so far! The whole family came down to meet her and each took turns riding her before they made their final decision. She loved the attention and took great care with each of her mounts who rode in just a halter and saddle. Afterwards, you could tell she was proud of herself and the family was thrilled to adopt her.
BREED: Quarter Horse
RIDER LEVEL: Beginner
SUITABILITY: English/Western Pleasure, Trail Riding
LOCATION: Maple Ridge, BC
ADOPTION FEE: BY DONATION
If you've been searching for the perfect, gentle and safe horse for your child or hubby, Sweetpea is your girl!
Sweetpea is a darling 22 year old Quarter Horse mare who is an owner surrender. She arrived at the rescue on August 11, 2015 in good condition, is healthy and has been de-wormed. She stands 15.1hh with very nice build and good feet. She has good manners, is polite to handle, trailers and hauls well and gets along with other horses. She is very friendly, loves people and easy to catch. This girl is very well-broke to ride and super easy. She is very soft in her mouth (doesn't need a bit), moves off the leg, sidepasses, backs, etc. She would be a great pleasure mount for a gentle child or beginner.
Sweetpea is older and very gentle but still has enough spunk to be fun. She travels well, but as she has fluid bumps in her knees she is not suitable for hard mountain trails or jumping. She would be best for a family looking for a safe mount for pleasure riding (no more than 3 days a week) in an arena or on a flat or moderate trail. She would be a lovely addition to any family and is an adorable mare who would really flourish with a person of her own to dote on her for the remainder of her years.
She is located in Maple Ridge. Her adoption fee is BY DONATION with a trial-period and a signed adoption agreement. Contact us today if you are interested in giving this nice mare a home.
