Suri is a solid built Quarter Horse mare who turns heads everywhere she goes. In the fall of 2021 she sustained a slight tendon injury and spent 6 months on stall rest. She was a model citizen during this time and never gave staff or her trainers any complaints. Suri has now returned to 24/7 turnout, as well as riding, and we are pleased to report her as sound. As a riding horse she has demonstrated anxious behaviors when riding and being saddled. After being evaluated by our vet, they discovered very slight kissing spine, but it was determined that it was unlikely that this was the primary reason for her behaviors. She demonstrated classic behaviors of a horse subjected to poor saddle fit in the past, and we have worked to address this problem. With the help of our equine chiropractor and proper saddle fit, we have made great strides toward Suri becoming a more relaxed, happier mount. Her ideal career would be to be a trail horse, as this seems to bring her the most happiness. She could also be well suited for low level dressage and has spent much of her rehabilitation period working on the basics of rhythm, relaxation, and suppleness.
Suri will need an advanced intermediate rider or above with a solid seat. We believe she could live a happy, productive life as your every day riding partner, but we don't recommend her for any high impact activities. She is a large, wide mare who won't fit in your average FQHB saddles and will need a wide saddle to accommodate her build. She is currently our trainer's favorite mount due to her impeccable ground manners and willing nature.
