Belle is a sweet mare with Morgan spunk. She rides and drives, very forward so she would be best suited for an experienced, calm, kind person. She took some time to trust us and her new environment, but once she settled she is fine. She does need a large area attached to a stall so she can move around more. If she is put in a stall, her hind legs bother her and become stiff.
According to my vet and chiropractor, she has a mild case of Shrivers, so pasture with a stall attached is perfect for her. She does love her stall and large paddock as she move freely between the two. I have not had an issues of soundness with her kept in this set up. However, she still has thrush, though we have made lots of progress. Occasionally she maybe be tender on her feet if we have too much rain. Farrier said it takes a long time for new frogs to grow as hers were eaten away severely.
She needs her own human and will bond. I believe she is best suited for a smaller framed adult who is comfortable with a forward energetic mare. We have not cantered her yet, I wanted to get her in better shape, I plan on doing that this summer. She is not spooky. I have driven her and I have an adult student who rides her once a week. She is a little flirt, whinnies at all horses who walk by her and is very Mare-ish around new horses and when she is in heat. She squeals and strikes out with her front feet. This is her worse behavior which is not really bad. I have seen worse mares.
At 20, she's really in the prime of Morgan life to become someone's partner for the next 10 or 15 years.
