Lucy has been at our trainer’s for the past month. They were hoping that she might work out for them as a personal trail horse and to be used in beginner riding lessons. She’s a little too hot/nervous under saddle to make a good beginner horse, however, so she has returned to SAFE and is available for adoption. Our trainer speculated that she has been ridden pretty roughly in the past as she is a bit defensive about the bit and leg aids, but she is not naughty or evasive at all. Sara rode her in a lesson the night she returned to SAFE, and she was great…she rode her walk/trot/canter without a problem, but she is a very sensitive, forward mare so not for a beginner.
