Current assessment and status: Sweet and Talented!
Suzannah, a gorgeous, 7-yr-old bay HackneyX mare, completed a 90-day training under the THHIN Rescue Challenge this past winter, started under saddle and showcased held at the Big E in Springfield, MA. She has no known issues or bad habits but is not suitable for beginners under saddle, as she is still very green, sensitive, and forward. Suzannah may make a wonderful riding or driving pony with some further training! She is best suited for a home that will continue her training and keep her in work.
Suzannah is currently in foster training at Abenaki Farm in Campton, NH., where lots of slow and steady work has paid off! Groundwork has helped gain her trust and learn that quiet, trusting work is preferred. She has been ridden hunt seat, by an experienced 12-yr-old girl, but always starting on a lunge line, and then walk/trot work. Friendly to all, Suzannah loves her all-day turnout in a herd of six.
