Breed: Registered Paint
Suitable For: Show, trails, Therapy
Registered black & white paint mare. Very gentle. She has just started her schooling under saddle and as a therapy horse with hand signal and voice cues. Her owner has ridden her with hackamore and bitless bridle but needs further schooling to make trail-safe, therapy horse or school horse. She has a happy, willing disposition and very showy action—would be excellent for show either English or Western. She loves being hugged on her neck 😊
Owner lost their home in the Hawaiian volcano eruption. 4 horses were shipped over to California. We have rehomed the 2 foals of Ali'i (Dam) and Frisky (Sire) and now trying to find homes for these two.
Note from previous owner: Ali'i and my other 3 horses have been raised since foals with a lot of love and time as my personal pets. Before the evacuation, they were handled and groomed every day of their lives, weather permitting. They had 15 acres of year-round grazing in Kapoho, Big Island, until our ranch became isolated by lava. After they matured, they remained sleek with good weight with no supplemental feeding .
I can PROMISE that each of my horses is loving, respectful of people, gentle, and kind, enjoys schooling and learning. They do NOT respond well to rough handling as they have never been subjected to it. They have good English language understanding and responsiveness. I was a professional trainer for 30 years during my early career and my horses are encouraged to explore, stay empowered, and to want to learn new communication and behaviors.
