| Maya is a sweet little off the track thoroughbred mare. She is 9 years old and 15.3 hands. She retired from racing in the fall of 2016. Maya is kind, friendly, loves attention and peppermints, doesnt bite, kick, buck, rear, bolt, crib, weave, pick her nose, use bad language, or any of those other bad habits you dont want in a horse. You can lead her to water, AND make her drink. She is very obedient, responsive, and wants to please.
Maya has spent a lot of time being rehabbed physically, so she is still a little green still under saddle. She needs at at least an intermediate rider (that means no beginners, advanced beginners, or beginners who think they are experienced), but she will be beginner safe when finished. She moves off the leg very well, forward, backward, and laterally. Her spookiness has improved majorly with work, but shes still a little looky and isnt very fond of changes in the surface of the ground. However, she gets noticeably more confident with each ride and will be amazing eventually. She is a super fun little horse and learns fast. I have ridden her bareback in a halter and reins and she did well. I have let children ride her under supervision, and she loved it. She is traffic safe. She loads in the trailer, lunges, gets along in a herd, picks up all her feet, stands still for mounting, farrier, and stands tied. Overall, she is very easy to handle. She is sound barefoot. She is up to date on shots, deworming, and hoof trim.
I would like to see Maya go to a flatwork only home. I am negotiable on the price, but I want her to go to a great home. She wants to have a relaxed life with a special human to have fun with. She also specifically requested a human with lots of peppermints and she prefers to go by the name Princess Maya, so if that is going to be a problem, you need not apply. She comes with her papers, TIP card, a shoe that she wore while racing, sold as retired from racing papers, Coggins test, and if you are a 12 year old horse princess or a 12 year old horse princess at heart, a pink sparkly halter. Forever home preferred.
