Scotch 2008 Arabian X

Scotch is a 15.2 hand, 2008, Registered Part Arabian mare. (rider in photos is 5’10”).  Looking for a show or lesson home. She is NOT a trail horse, or pasture pet  – she is a schoolmaster for arena work. She has some competition experience in English and western dressage. She is very well trained, but does have some anxiety around people which can affect her performance at shows.

At home she has done some jumping, obstacles, bridle-less work, and been ridden bareback. She has all the buttons and can do shoulder-in, revers, travers, leg yield, half pass (trot and canter),  counter canter, and has schooled pirouettes and flying changes (she can do them if fit). She neck reins and works well off leg. Goes in a snaffle, curb or halter.

I have owned Scotch since 2018 , and she has taught me a lot as she is very willing to learn and came with a very good understanding of working off light aids.  I have had neurological issues since 2012 (peripheral Neuropathy, intermittent vertigo) and she has been great for me. She does have her quirks though, and needs an experienced owner, and to be looked after by experienced caregivers.

She is fine for the farrier & loads/trailers well. Has been kept outside 24/7, but does seem more relaxed when stabled as that is how she was raised.  She needs time to trust her handler and needs a person who understands equine body language. Not suitable for a nervous person, and not suitable for someone looking for a back yard trail horse.

Scotch was last ridden by me September 2022. I was injured and am not able to ride for the foreseeable future. Trial is recommended to see if you are a good fit for Scotch.  Scotch is being brought back into work as of Dec 26, and was ridden walk/trot by a client on Dec 29.  I will work on getting a current video as she gets her fitness back.

As my reason for selling came up quickly, I do not have sales video, but I do have some miscellaneous video from years past:

Western riding, getting on.

Available to be included in the sale is a Wintec Dressage saddle, dressage girth, and assorted blankets. Her price does not reflect her quality – I just want her to have a suitable home. She needs someone with patience to earn her trust and to get to know her.
