Evaluation and Training

Sienna is very gentle with adults and children. She appears to not be bother by dogs or other livestock. She does appear to be hesitant around water. She is easy to catch, lead, and load.  She is easy to halter and blanket, even for her novice horse owner foster home!

In June 2019, trainer Hilary LoBue test rode her and discovered Sienna was broke to ride.  She’s has spent four months with a non-pro youth rider for more riding time.  Her youth rider’s mom says Sienna has impeccable ground manners and describes her “as the least spooky horse she has ever seen”.  Sienna and her rider have been working in an arena, over obstacles, and out on trails.  She has been ridden bareback and also completely tackless. 

Sienna has high withers and little musculature over her back.  Because of this, she can be hard to fit to a saddle and may need an extra thick saddle pad.  (This is the reason her fee is lower than it should be – because we understand that additional padding or a higher quality saddle pad just for her costs more).

This mare is sweet, quiet, and calm but she does have more go than whoa so don’t let her age fool you!  She can be ridden western or english.  She would do well for a beginner with a trainer or a family with horse experience.
