LA SONRISA DE MI CORAZON   PFHA REG #  60119  FOALING DATE: 19/15/2010  SOLD!!!

Sonrisa

Colombian Paso Fino. 

Sonrisa is a beautiful 11-year-old mare with a lot of potential. About 2.5 years ago, I started her ground training using the Clinton Anderson natural horsemanship method. She has also had two months of professional training.

Sonrisa performs many tasks on the ground that have not yet been mastered under saddle.

For example, she can side pass on the ground in both directions and while she will do it under saddle, it is not without some nervousness. She is touchy and nervous and surges slightly with leg cues. We're working on that.

She will stand still when mounting, but wants to walk off before a cue. Working on that, too! (Can be mounted from the ground or a block)

She can also be difficult to catch and it may take up to 5 minutes. Fortunately, after trying a few different methods, we have settled on one that works pretty well.

Sonrisa needs an experienced rider with patience, as she lacks the regularity and experience of every day riding except in the summer when camping with us for weeks at a time - during which she has put in several hundred miles. Our daily rides average about 10 miles and they include crossing bridges, walking through creeks, walking at a steady pace up and down steep hills, and weaving in and out of trees and stepping with ease over logs. 

Sonrisa is barefoot and healthy and sound. Her mouth is soft and responsive and she both direct and indirect reins. She loads great, stands for the farrier, tolerates bathing and hoses and buckets and even creek-washing, and she wears Easyboots on rocky roads. (Boots are included). She is most comfortable in a snaffle bit. For training, she wears a Michael Gascon training halter. (Included, as it is small).

Sonrisa enjoys her lessons. She is eager to learn and is a very sweet horse that wants to please. She is the perfect weight and height (800 lbs., 13.2hh).

I am selling her because after much looking, I have found another Walker, which is the breed I prefer.

There are more pictures, a few videos and other information if you are interested. I am available most days and can also deliver Sonrisa, within a reasonable distance if you don't own a trailer.

Thanks for looking.

Cielo Grande Zafiro  PFHA# 57161  Foaling date: May 19, 2012

Zafiro, an eight year old registered dark bay, Paso Fino gelding that brings daily joy to his owner with his friendly curious personality. He always has a greeting and loves a scratch in return. Zafiro is easy to catch, to shoe, to keep and gets along well with other horses. He’s had a lot of trail experience, but as with most horses,  would benefit from more training. I have had great trips riding mountain trails throughout Idaho, Washington, Montana and Wyoming crossing creeks and rivers. Zafiro needs an owner with intermediate riding and horsemanship skills..

Contact eloiseopp51@gmail.com or call 509-671-1972.   $3,000.
