For almost a year PS has been at college and now she is back looking for a quieter career.  Working in a ring with many horses and different riders was just not her cup of tea, but she likes jumping, so maybe Eventing or hunter paces with her one person may be more up her alley.  She is an athlete and tries hard if you are fair with her since she is a mare.  PS loves people and always greets you with a bright expression when you come to see her and will talk to you if you call her name.  She has always been inquisitive and looks at the world bright-eyed, so she is happy to learn new things.  She will be suitable for minimally an upper intermediate level rider with the skills to be able to work through the mare’s anxiety of working with other horses in the arena with her.  

PS takes on the personality of her turn out group and has befriended the alpha mare, with both of them keeping the low mare in the group at a distance from them.  Now that the alpha mare has been adopted, PS will befriend the other mare within a few days because it is just the 2 of them now.  She has no vices and retired from racing in 2015 with a slight bowed tendon that is so minor there is no profile or thickening.  PS should be suitable for any discipline. 

The first photos are recent and the rest were taken a year ago, so she has matured a bit since then.  The first video is recent and the second video was a year ago as well.
