Callie is currently 16.3+h, and still growing her withers. She has always been barefoot with NO history of injuries, lameness, or colic. She is being sold because her rider/trainer has graduated from college has moved to LA to start her “real” career. She is a registered Appendix QH,, born 2015, 1/2 TB, 1/2 quarter horse. Callie's sire is Sharp Writer JC, so her DNA is more than 1/2 Thoroughbred, but has more "whoa than go".
She came back from the trainer TOM DIAZ in May to be ridden by Heidi Masem and has been straightforward to work with. She has smooth, with easy-to-sit gaits, height. While growing, we have "backed off" in her jumping training while still emphasizing teaching her solid, respectful ground manners, trust, partnership and strengthening with lunging, long-lining, in hand work, round-penning, and being ridden by a beginner. Since she is still growing into herself, it is hard pin down her forte, although she seems unfazed by any commotion around her and has the confidence to go away from her herd to explore things that she wants to "check out",,,which is always a good sign.
She loads and hauls well, ties and stands for the farrier, and is inherently very curious so she isn't scared by much.
She will make a wonderful partner in wherever her new owner wants to go,,, English or Western.
