Ashley is a 15.3 hand senior TB mare that spent her life as a youth show horse. She is safe and sound. She is excellent on the trails. Never spooks or bucks. This mare would be an excellent beginner horse. I took her on a 3 day trail ride and she was totally bombproof. SHe went across bridges, through water, galloped with the pack of horses and was safe and so much fun! She is a point and shoot show jumper. As most gray horses do...Ashley has some melanomas. They do not affect her and the vet does not feel they need to be treated at this time.
