Class's intro to crossrails!

This stunning 6 year old sorrel 14.1 hand mare was rescued from the feedlot in May 2006. She has been started under saddle and is available for adoption to the perfect home.

Class's intro to crossrails!

Postby Juliane on Sat Oct 27, 2007 8:29 pm

First of all, I must thank Cat67 for coming up this afternoon to help me with Class. Poor Ally has been very sick recently, so I couldn't ask her, however, I needed someone to help me get some new pictures of Class under saddle.

I am having a heck of a time trying to find a home for Class, I assume due to the slaughter issues and flood of unwanted horses on the market right now. While Class has alot going for her, there have been hardly any inquiries on her.

So, to help increase her desirability, we decided to see how she'd do over jumps. Ally had trotted her over poles a few times, and I had Cassidy ride her over some low cross rails, but today was really Class' first introduction to jumping.

Cathy did a great job with Class, giving Class the guidance and direction she needed to have a positive first experience. Now, hopefully, those in the market for a potential hunter/jumper pony might consider Class?

Here's a few pics and short video:

Wow. She looks like such an awesome little horse.
I am surprised that someone has not snatched her up yet. She has so much potential it looks like.
But the market is flooded with great horses. And unfortunatly they are being abandoned by their owners left and right because of the costs of feed right now. It is so sad. They would rather give up their horse than give up their daily Starbucks. :roll:

I can't say enough nice things about Class. She is so sweet and willing, and a total pocket pony. There's no spook, no buck, nothing negative at all -- she's got perfect, clean legs, totally sound, great manners, loads herself in the trailer...what's not to love? 60 more days of consistent riding and she'll be ready for the shows. She just needs finishing, and a youth could finish her themselves with a good trainer's help. Class, like Connor, is an opportunity to get a nice show prospect who was in the wrong place at the wrong time and fortunately got rescued!

It was a pleasure riding her. Thanks, Juliane!

P.S. I am invoking the oft-used "I was on a greenie" excuse for my equitation. :D

Is Class under 14'2 so she could go as a large pony hunter? If so maybe Pony Club would be a good place to market her.

I'm positive she's pony sized but maybe Juliane can measure her and just verify it for everybody. I agree that Pony Club is a great place to market her - she definitely has a kid-friendly mind and disposition. I was saying that she is actually easier than Connor. He was easy, but he was a little reactive about things touching his butt, horse blankets, etc. and he could be stubborn. This one has no "holes"...she is just as calm and willing as can be and simply needs finishing.

When Class was with me, a trainer came to look at her and brought a stick with her to be sure that Class is a pony. I dont remember the exact measurement, but she's definitely a pony. I think she was right at 14.1

She's such a cutie pie! Thanks, Cat, for riding her- you two look great together :wink:

Yep, Class is 14.1! She is legally a pony!
