SOLD – Anya is a 2008 mare, born in June. She is sired by Mintse out of a Wander daughter and is fancy, happy and lots of fun. Anya’s dam is 3rd premie stambook with full papers, including lots of preferent status in her pedigree. Anya will be of medium size and is a very pretty mare. She will probably mature less than sixteen hands but should be tall enough for star. She has a beautiful head and conformation and is already growing lots of hair. She has a very Friesian look and should do well whether your discipline is riding or driving. Her movement is very strong and she is balanced at all three gaits. She has had lots of people time so she does all those ground
tasks such as cross ties, grooming, clipping, hoof trimming and of, course, a good sport around shots and worming. She is bold and curious and should be an exciting addition whether this is your first Friesian or you are building your Friesian herd. Anya was started under saddle in June, 2011 and is taking to her riding tasks like a pro. She is already “herding” our other mares or yearling colt while our trainer is riding her, brandishing a long lunge whip — which is one of our trainer’s
techniques of getting young horses acclimated and accepting of activity under saddle. She has also been started on our ‘Norco Trails’ which is basically riding around the block but that includes lots of barking dogs body slamming fences, trash trucks, motorcycles and even charging emus! We think Anya will be an excellent choice for an experienced amateur rider or professional who is petite in size and who wants their forever friend for pleasure riding; lower level dressage and/or driving.
