Evaluation and Training

She leads, loads, and stands well for farrier work.  She stands for saddling, and she has learned how to longe.  Her foster home has started riding her and says she is a quiet mare.  She does not know much but is willing and improving with each ride.  She’s sweet and kind, and she could be a nice horse for a child or beginner with more training or for someone working with a trainer/riding instructor.
