Jeanete Next Door is not your average ‘girl next door.’ This sweet redhead may come off as shy, but when she bonds with someone, she has boundless love to give. She is polite through and through: easy to handle on the ground and stands well for the farrier. Even though she wasn’t cut out to be a racehorse (with only one start on the track), she is progressing nicely as a riding horse.
We have been working on relaxation techniques to help her stretch long and low, as she tends to get tight along her topline. When she comes onto the bit, relaxes her topline and uses her hind end (she’s learning to put it all together), she is quite the looker under saddle! She would benefit from an intermediate or advanced riding partner who can help her to be zen, and to reassure her when she needs a confidence boost (she LOVES praise). Jeanete also loves to be out outdoors, but she would prefer to be with buddies in turnout and on trails.
Due to some arthritic changes in her right front knee, we are recommending that Jeanete go to a home where she will only be in low-level or pleasure work.
Jeanete is eligible for the RRP 2018 TB Makeover.
