Callie

Callie is currently 16.3+h, and still growing withers, so we expect her to finish around  17h. 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 came back from the trainer TOM DIAZ  in May to be ridden and trained by our trainer and rider Heidi Masem and has been incredibly straightforward to work with. She is very smart with smooth, with easy-to-sit gaits, although this month (July) she had another growth spurt ......and as she is currently STILL growing into herself experiencing the normal balance issues that will resolve themselves when she finally reaches her full height.   Subsequently, we have "backed off" in her training during her current growth spurt, while still emphasizing teaching her solid, respectful ground manners, trust, partnership and strengthening with lunging, long-lining, in hand work and round-penning. Since she is still growing into herself, it is hard pin down her forte, although she seems unfazed by the 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.

 

She is a registered Appendix, 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..
