This sweet mare has been around the block a few times. Rose retired from racing in 2014 when it became apparent racing wasn’t her thing, was restarted lightly in Dressage in 2015, had a cute Warmblood colt in 2016 and then was briefly in training to be a barrel horse before coming back to the program. Rose needs a home where she can relax and just be someone’s pleasure or Dressage horse as she loves people and every time she sees you or if you say her name she will whinny to you which is very endearing. This mare will be something once given the time and bond of a best friend!
