Thank you Evie for this
GORGEOUS, SWEET mare!! You did such a wonderful job of raising
and training her! She is so people oriented, we (along with
everyone that meets her!) just LOVE her!
"Cheyenne" is a real
of a mare!
This mare has been ridden hundreds of miles all over Kentucky, and
is now busy racking up more miles here in Ontario since her arrival to us
on May 10, 2010.
She bathes, ties,
loads, lunges, stands for all ground work, bridles and saddles like
a pro. She neck reins and has a wonderful smooth gait. This is
an absolutely wonderful horse for beginner riders like us, that just
want some worry free riding.
Although we have
personally only used her for trail and road riding, before coming
here, she was used not only for trail riding, but also for working
cattle. She had also been used to swim through deep water and pony
young horses, has been ridden in 4-H for competitive trails and
parades as a flag carrier for FFA and even did night rides!
She was purchased to be my husband's
riding horse, but I have now OFFICIALLY claimed her as my own
personal riding horse!
She has had a number of
wonderful foals over the years for her previous owner, however, I
have no intention of breeding her. Prior to her coming to us,
Cheyenne had the same owner since she was just 4 months of age.
Cheyenne is said to be out of a lemon
spotted unregistered mare and sired by a black pinto registered
stallion, however, no further information is known as to names,
lineage etc., which is OK, as we don't ride her papers or pedigree!
We were able to
have Cheyenne registered with SSHBEA by providing videos of her to
prove she is gaited, so she is now OFFICIALLY a registered mare!
(September 2017): SADLY, for the past
almost 2 years, Cheyenne has been suffering with year-round
recurrent bouts of laminitis due to Insulin Resistance, therefore
she is officially "semi-retired". She has BIG shoes to fill, and I
doubt I will ever find another horse as good. This girl has been my
security blanket for the past 7½ years. She has taught me sooo much,
and has been a great confidence builder, but at the same time, has
spoiled me, and I only have confidence in her, and not with all
horses. I need to work on trying to improve on that. I
will definitely still ride her when I can...when she is sound and
feeling up to it. She is definitely my
