2011 Mare, 16.2+ hands tall
Repriced - Lady Alcharline
Adoption Fee - $1,000
Chappie came to Friends of Ferdinand last summer. She was originally given away by her owner/breeder/trainer when she had run through her conditions and they did not want to drop her class and see her fall through the levels. A few weeks later, he drove by her field and was not happy with her condition. He took her back and called us.
We gave her several months to put back on some weight and began slowly working her under saddle to start rebuilding muscle. This is a really nice, fancy, athletic mare and we think she needs to go jump things.
Chappie is proving to be game to do what you ask, but since everything is new, she needs to borrow some confidence from her rider. If you have some confidence to spare, she will carry you on. She's learning to move off the leg and give to the hand and so still quite green. We are looking for an experienced amateur rider working with a trainer for Chappie. She'd also be a great choice for a pro who is looking to bring along a horse for a year and then sell to their clients.
Chappie took advantage of the mild winter weather and went on her first outing, to school XC. She lives up to what we thought about her being level headed. She is a good sport. Once she figured out that she had to go over the logs she picked up her feet and jumped them better than she does at home.
Adoption fee is competitively priced and is subject to go up as this mare impresses us more and more, has more experiences, and continues to prove herself to be what we think she is.
