If her striking looks don’t win you over, her sweet disposition will! “Feisty” is as unique as her color!

Feisty is a pleasure in the barn and has great ground manners to match. She stands in the crossties without issue and is the perfect patient for the vet and farrier. Feisty will just about fall asleep in your arm when you scratch her head, and unlike many thin-skinned TBs, she enjoys being brushed and pampered. She is very polite and never nosy, but she loves attention.

Feisty very much enjoys the her time outside, but she is always easy to catch from turnout and she is independent enough to go off on her own. Feisty is happy to be in the middle of the ‘pack hierarchy’ with her turnout buddies and is non-confrontational.

Under saddle, Feisty shows loads of potential. She is eager-to-please and bold, with smooth gaits and a good understanding of contact. She can get excited and can lean in to the bit, but she is never too difficult to manage. To bring Feisty to her full potential, she would do best with a confident rider who has a soft hand. (UPDATED) Feisty would excel as a low-level sport horse– she is very athletic and has potential to shine in many disciplines!

Feisty Valentina is eligible for both the Pony Club Challenge and the 2017 RRP Thoroughbred Makeover.
