"Cookie Monster" - For Sale
16.3 hands : 6 year old : Thoroughbred : Mare
Cookie Monster is a 6 year old Thoroughbred mare standing 16.3 hands high. Cookie had a very short racing career with only one start, due to her lacking a need for speed. She would much rather go around the ring like a show hunter, than to run like the wind. The past year, Cookie has been a trusty hunt horse, a safe and relaxing trail mount, and has proven to be gentle and forgiving enough for the children and guests to learn on. Cookie is a schoolmaster in the making. She is brave, honest, simple, and aims to please. We have taken Cookie cross country, to dressage lessons, and to a handful of schooling shows and she has been nothing short of an angel for everything we have thrown her way. She is an old soul with a great, quiet mind. This is the type of horse that can be successful in any situation, job, or program. With her versatility the sky is the limit.
In the ring, Cookie is a barn favorite. Anyone can ride this mare. She has three comfortable gaits, auto lead changes, and always aims to please. She is schooling first level dressage, doing basic lateral work, and has been started over fences as well. At 6, she will still need some fine tuning to polish her off, but she is simple and safe enough for anyone capable of steering around the ring. She has been schooled up to 1.10, and shows tons of scope in the hind end. She is brave and honest to fences, and will be an easy one to bring along and fine tune as you see fit. We have used cookie for lessons, taken her off property a ton, and have even gone to a few schooling shows to get her used to the show atmosphere. All which didn't take much work, as she settles right in to the task at hand like an old pro.
Off property, Cookie has tons of miles. She absolutely loves to trail ride, fox hunt, and hunter pace! Cookie has hunted in all fields, and has also been used for guests and first time fox hunters to learn on. Cookie will swim like a fish, and never says no to taking a dip in the lake. The girls take her out on the trails bareback with just a halter all the time. She is truly an enjoyable and safe horse to hack out and explore on. Cookie is our first choice when we want to relax and not have to worry about a thing. We love having her along on all of our trail riding adventures; she is brave, reliable, and sure footed. Cookie is happy alone or at the front, back or middle of a group.
In the barn, Cookie is respectful and polite. She loves having a relationship with her people and is gentle enough for the kids to groom and love on. Cookie is currently being turned out in a mixed herd of mares and other geldings and gets along well with others. She is well behaved when stalled as well, and has no bad habits. She is the same horse living in or out, and will be just as quiet and safe if ridden every day or once a week.
Cookie is a promising young horse ready to take on the world! She has a great foundation and quiet mind, combined with miles in a variety of disciplines to make for a well rounded, versatile horse, ready to take on anything her next person decides!
