"Dixie" is a small horse with a huge heart! She would suit a child or petite adult rider. This mare is very well trained and has had lots of exposure to various large hunter venues in Saskatchewan. She moves with a lovely rhythm, strides well in the hunter ring and makes her changes with a simple squeeze of the outside rein over the jump.
Her rider participated in the 2012 Saskatchewan Summer Games in dressage, and Dixie helped her team to win a bronze medal. This mare is kind, no spook at all, clips, trailers, and can be ridden bareback. She is a horse every mother would love for her child. She is only for sale as her rider has outgrown her.
Her accomplishments for the 2012 show season are: District Champion in Jr A English Pleasure, Road Hack, Show Hack, 2' 3" Hunter, and Western Pleasure. She was Reserve Champion in Jr A Equitation, Hunt Seat Equitation, and 2' 6" Hunter. She will also be receiving a Provincial Award for her accomplishments.
Dixie is currently training Level 2 dressage movements and will be jumping 2' 6" and 2' 9" in the 2013 show season. Her videos (7 of them) can be viewed on YouTube with the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2_uXo6J9bw.
Dixie has worked with cattle and has experience in reining and trail. As a 3 year old, she took 4th place in the Saskatchewan 50/50 Futurity - earning a pay cheque of just over $1,400.
