Other

Cleopatra will be competing under saddle in the professional division of the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge with trainer Mychelle Clark.  He will be available for adoption starting on October 21, 2017 at the Challenge competition during the Bluebonnet Horse Expo in Austin, Texas.

You can follow their progress on their Facebook page.

Evaluation and Training

Cleopatra is very gentle and sweet.  She is currently with Mychelle Clark being started under saddle.  Mychelle says Cleopatra is coming along very well.  She seems like she would do well with western riding such as open show western pleasure, horsemanship, and trail class. Mychelle has not taken her down the trails yet but she is very brave and so Mychelle thinks she would really enjoy trail riding as well.

Mychelle says, “I think she would be fine with a rider that has experience or intermediate who is willing to be a teacher as she is very responsive to patient and consistent riding. She is by no means naughty or hard to handle just that she holds a great deal of trust in her handler that took a long time to get and I think a beginner right now might lose that trust if they aren’t fair.”
