Dolce is personable, forward, sensitive and beautiful. She appreciates a rider who is calm and clear with an understanding of "natural horsemanship" techniques. She is more "go" than "whoa" being over 1/2 Throughbred. She is being sold because her rider/trainer has graduated from college has moved to LA to start her “real” career.
She is very willing and eager to please, and has a puppydog, follow-you-all-around personality. She is 16.2h, has always been barefoot, stands for the farrier, loads and hauls well, and ties and cross-ties. She has off the ranch experience which includes boarding and riding at UCD Equestrian Center, and (thanks to our friend Richene) she had six weeks of training at Graceland Equestrian Center at the end of last year. For the past 5 months she was worked at home by our rider trainer Heidi Masem in basics and is currently being worked in hand to solidify her understanding of aids and develop her sense of "partnership. She would make a lovely hunter, equitation, Working Equitation, lower level dressage, or all-around Western trail horse. She loves to free-jump through our jumping chute, and we have been steadily jumping her LOW in the jumping chute and under-saddle.
She is Appendix Quarter horse, whose sire is the JC stallion Singletary.
