$$ - "Emmy" - 2004 AQHA CowHorse/ranch horse/gentle riding mare
Here is another fine mare for your consideration. Emmy aka Emmies Lil Star is a 2004 year old mare from the Cal Poly program who is bred to the hilt. She is by a son of Doc's Hickory whose mother was a daughter of Grays Starlight. Her Dam was by Nu Cash out of a daughter of Montana Doc. Emmy has been here for her owner (a 13 year old boy) to take lessons on for over a year. This kind, talented and attractive mare is one that has shown us she can sit for long periods without getting overly fresh. She is VERY cowy, has a fast turn around and wants to stop and change leads. She is not in any way tuned up to her full potential right now; the video shows an accurate representation of where she is now (after inconsistent training) and not the level I think this mare can achieve; she is a talented horse. Her ability to go from sitting to bailing a cinch into her and riding her off onto a task with pressure on her has impressed us thoroughly. All the video shown is with a lot time off (to no fault of her own) and within the first five minutes of having a rope swing on her or seeing any of the obstacles. She was immediately on task and took it all like an old pro. In addition to what's seen here, we've roped and ponied colts off her, ridden her out some, doctored cattle, etc. She's in the bridle and would make a nice novice non-pro CowHorse, excellent sorter/penner, a dandy pleasure, trail, ranch, ranch versatility or ranch pleasure horse and is suitable for any level rider from advanced beginner on up. She has a sweet personality and wants to please. Friendly but not rudely in your space. A nicely conformed mare standing about 14.2hh with a wide, stout body, straight legs and baby doll face. Her owner has decided to sell her and go the straight reining direction. She has never had any soundness issues in the time we've had her; good feet and clean legs. No vices, no bucking, rearing, big spook, running off, stall/trailer kicking, mare-ish behavior, etc. is one that gets along with basically any other horse who's next to her in the stalls too. She is priced at $12,000 OBO; located near Bakersfield, Ca. prices are always negotiable and shipping/delivery is available at buyer's expense.
