Custom is a super sweet mare who has an unusual way of greeting everyone by putting her nose on your forehead which is rather endearing coming from her. She is very curious about everyone but is looking for that one person she can count on and have confidence in and if you say her name she will whinny to you as you are coming down the aisle to her stall. She is not a horse that will go headlong into new things, but prefers to go slowly and be given time to figure things out. When she first arrived she was very nervous about working in the indoor arena, but she is completely comfortable working there now and the new challenge is working outside with all the bugs. It will just take time and patience, being a typical mare in that regard, and a little praise works wonders. Custom will be suitable for flat work only and will require a patient rider who gets along well with green mares.
When first turned out with a new mare Custom will fuss at her out of fear and then becomes instant friends, following her new friend around the pasture, grazing nose to nose. She has been out with both bossy mares and quiet mares and blends in with either type.
