Citywide Contest is a petite mare with exquisite features. When you first meet her she can be shy. As soon as she becomes familiar with you, she is tender and lovable. She will lean in to face rubs and loves cuddles. City tends to be middle to low in the herd as she is quiet and befriends others easily. She is a stall weaver who has settled a great deal in our open barn atmosphere, with only a gentle sway around feed time. She is quite happy living outside though. We have front shoes on all horses in training but when City was just hanging out in the field, she was fine to live barefoot.
City is very smart and willing, every ride shows progress. She already shows a “packer” type mentality and with some fine tuning she could make an excellent lesson horse. City might give something new a sideways glance but otherwise has a “been there done that” attitude. Her only weak spots are standing at the mounting block and she needs to polish her transitions. Pretty impressive for a 4yr old! This lovely lady is suitable for low intermediate or possibly an advanced beginner rider with a trainer’s assistance. Her owners decided it was not in her best interest to race City due to her unhappiness living inside in combination with conformation flaws so she was retired without any apparent injuries and no limitations.
