Sophia is a kind of go with the flow type of mare that is happy to just do her job without issue and likes any attention bestowed upon her. She is so kind and is happy to do whatever is asked of her, never fussing or making a big deal out of anything. She is a nice solidly built mare that will take up the rider’s leg and is quiet enough for an intermediate level rider. Sophie is so much more whoa than go to the point of being rather lazy, but will work when asked as she was trained at the Belmont level of racing, so she knows how to work, she just prefers a much slower speed. Sophia is a laid back gal, ready for a dressage or trail home! Easily hold a western saddle with her build.
