Whisper is an approx 18 year old Appendix mare who stands 15.2hh with a solid build. She has solid feet, is sound and has no health issues. Whisper is a gorgeous and brilliant mare who is well-broke but requires an experienced horse person as she is sensitive and can be dominant if she does not feel her rider is capable of taking charge. She loads and hauls well, is easy to handle, is good for the farrier, gets along well with other horses and loves being around people.
She has hit the trails tons in the last year is good on her own or with a buddy. She has no problem with cars and is good over bridges, through streams and with dogs on her heels. She has a sure-footed gait and a jog as smooth as melted butter! She has lovely ground manners, is good to tack up and is steady and spook-proof. We also took her in the Maple Ridge Christmas Parade in December and she was an all-star!
She was on-trial recently but came back as they claimed that she was bucking and rearing. A massage and chiropractic session, confirmed our suspicions that the behaviour had been caused by soreness either from or combined with ill-fitting tack. Since being at the rescue, Whisper had never offered to rear or buck with us and doesn’t spook, bolt, bite, etc and we knew something wasn't right. She is all fixed up now and we are still looking for that perfect home for her with an experienced person who can help her to be all she can be.
This girl really will try her heart out and has a lot to offer the right person.
Whisper is located at our farm in Maple Ridge. Her adoption fee is $500 with a signed adoption agreement and a 30-day trial period. Contact us or submit an adoption application today if interested!
