Bay Roan


January 14, 2021:

Nutmeg has been feeling great under saddle. She loves trail rides or cruising around in the arena. We have been working on more collection in all gaits and she is taking to it really well. Nutmeg will require an intermediate to advanced confident rider. She has a lot of go and we believe she would excel with having a job.

December 3, 2020:

Nutmeg has been feeling back to her normal self. We did find that she had some sore muscles in her back upon arrival. However she has since recovered and is now back to a regular riding routine. Nutmeg really enjoys trail rides but can get a little excited to head back to the ranch. So we are working on slowing her down mentally and physically. She also has been excelling in the arena. She has light sensitive cues and is always ready to go. Nutmeg will require an intermediate to advanced confident rider.

October 7, 2020:

Nutmeg has returned to us due to the fact that she was not adjusting well to city life and crowded trails. She will start back into our training program at the completion of her quarantine time. Once she is re-evaluated she will be available for adoption.

June 11, 2020:

Nutmeg continues to get a better understanding of communication between her and the rider.  She has become softer and more responsive to cues.  Nutmeg also has learned to slow herself in all her gaits.  However she can still test her rider at times, and will continue to need an intermediate to advanced rider at this time.

Nutmeg is a little energizer bunny who really loves having a job.  She has a comfortable extended walk out on the trail and can keep up with horses with a longer stride.  She is handling arena riding better than ever before.  With all of her energy, Nutmeg would best be suited to a home that she can get ridden multiple days a week. She still would require an intermediate to advanced rider.

Update October 4:

Nutmeg is such a sweet girl who is always ready to please. She still has a little bit of a motor but is learning to control her forward motion in all of her gaits. She has really picked up on collection at the walk and trot and is getting there with her lope. She now travels around much slower and more relaxed in every gait. She loves being out on the trail and enjoys exploring. Nutmeg is a strong little girl with a lot of grit. At this time she still would require an intermediate to advanced rider.

Update August 20:

Nutmeg is a little firecracker with a big heart. She is definitely an energizer bunny whether it is out on the trail or in the arena. I believe she would do great with a job, whether that is on a ranch or even some competitive trail riding. Nutmeg has a great personality and is ready to find her perfect home. At this time she still would require an intermediate to advanced rider.

Update March 15th:

Nutmeg has really shown improvement in her training all around.  She is beginning to mature under saddle and on the ground.  Her ability to fine tune her maneuvers and get more responsive to vocal and leg cues has helped her immensely.  Nutmeg really enjoys trail rides and arena work.  At this time she still requires an intermediate rider.

Update December 23rd:

Nutmeg is a very confident and independent girl with a big personality.  She has really taken to learning how to collect at all gaits and is a fun ride in the arena or out on our trails.  Nutmeg is a smart girl with a lot of grit.  She gives you her all and really likes to please.  At this time, Nutmeg would require an intermediate rider.

Update September 20:

Nutmeg has been progressing along nicely in the time we have had her in training. At times this mare can get a little hot, but as she continues to learn more she is slowing down and starting to focus on what she is being asked to do by the rider. Nutmeg continues to have a lot of try and a very friendly personality. She will require an intermediate rider.

Update July 11:

Nutmeg is a new addition to our training program here at (THS). She is doing very well considering that she has only had a handful of rides. She is currently learning how to follow the reins and move different body parts. Nutmeg currently needs in advance intermediate rider to continue her training.

Update June 26, 2018:

Nutmeg has done quite a turnaround and now is the first horse in her pen to come up to people. She can now be haltered and enjoys being brushed by the volunteers. We may try to get her started under saddle this summer. Adoption fee: $500

Bay Roan mare that is not very trusting at this time. We will work hard to gain her trust and help her become more sociable.
