Evaluation and Training
Amora is a gorgeous pony with her chocolate color and thick, flaxen mane and tail. She is basically a sweet mare, who has never kicked nor laid back her ears. She can be nervous around people, however, and difficult to catch outside a small pen. Once caught, however, her ground manners are good. The mare can be touched all over, tied, easily led, and loaded in a stock trailer. Initially, Amora was leery of the farrier, but she has improved when trimmed. Similarly, at first she was very difficult when vaccinated by a vet; the second time he remarked she was more relaxed.
Amora has been with a trainer during the month of October (2016) to be evaluated. The trainer said she was very nervous and flighty on the ground. She excelled under saddle, though! The trainer felt she was fairly well broke to ride and stated that Amora willingly did whatever asked. She did great in the arena, where she went over man-made trail obstacles. On the trail Amora rode very well, and the trainer was impressed by how easily she left the barn. She preferred to pace over walking, and her slow pace was very smooth. Amora did spook, nonetheless, when asked to stop on the trail.
Because Amora is pony-sized, she requires a small rider. The trainer felt that with an experienced and confident rider she would blossom.
