Additional Comments

 Pippi Short**2010 Bay OTTB Mare, 15.3hh, Intermediate Rider/Experienced  Handler. Illinois bred, Tattoo N25697, just 2 starts, unplaced, a  lifetime earnings of $160.00, obviously the track was not the place for  Pippi. We dont know where she was or what she did after that, we found  her in a killpen in TN back in January of 2019. After several months of  transition, from Quarantine, then letdown, and a minimal evaluation  which led to 30 days of professional training & a whole new  understanding of her, Pippi is ready to go to her new  family. OTTB to  Western Pleasure, she was fast-tracked and spur trained,  it left her  with issues both mental and physical that we had to overcome  as part of  her "R2R" Road to Recovery. She has done awesome and will make  someone  a wonderful trail horse. She will ride English, but does much better  western and neck reins nicely.  Woods, fields, crosses water and ditches  without hesitation, good on  roads. Has lovely smooth jog and lope. She  is middle of a herd, gets along with everyone, isn't bothered by dogs,  ducks, swans, llamas, rheas, emus, donkeys, or zebras. Loads/trailers  well, ponies off the gator and atv, lunges, stands  cross-tied, in the  shower stall, or high-lined. She is currently in a foster home,  maintaining her progress with natural horsemanship training. She is UTD  on her Coggins, Vaccines,Farrier, Deworming, comes Microchipped with  Microchip ID Equine & a lifetime activation. Meet&greets are  welcome,  & pre-purchase exams at adopter's expense, as we strive  for a good  match & "Right Fit". Adoption application, references,  and contract  required.
