River is a 9YO, grey, AQHA registered mare. 15.1 hands, 1100 lbs.
River is the main cattle and trail horse. She is extremely kind and wants a job once you get on. You can leave her for months and get back on to the same horse; she is a gentle mare and many think she is a gelding because of her quiet disposition.
She gets along with other horses, dogs, cats, goats and chickens.
She spent 6 months in the mountains of Steamboat on a big cattle operation last year being finished as an all-day ranch horse riding miles of fence line, checking cattle, dragging calves, opening gates, etc. She is an excellent trail riding horse. River packs, ponies and can be ponied just fine. She is tolerant of misbehaving ponies and horses, will stand tied and ties to a highline.
This mare has started sorting competitions and she is doing excellent; really a good, quiet cow horse. She would need to be finished on quick turns, but handles softly.
She rides with a hackamore or O-ring snaffle. Stands quite, easy to saddle, stands for farrier, easy to catch and load. Rides with geldings and other mares with no issue.
She has had 2 colts, one with previous owner and one with me. I still own her 2YO stud cold out of Apache Blue Hancock and he is exceptional; has inherited her size and easy-going disposition; easily trainable, smart and willing just like his dam. Easy keeper on mountain grass hay; I do keep her trimmed regularly because she can chip easily on rocky terrain.
