Kustom Maid, or “Maid Marion” as her owners call her, is being sold because she is not working out as a dressage horse for her 2 teenaged riders. Marion has good movement and has put them in the ribbons in several local shows at training level, but she does not enjoy being ridden on the bit. In the second under saddle video below, she is being ridden on a loose rein with occasional very light contact and she moves with a long flowing stride doing every change in gaits and direction that is asked of her. When her current trainer’s daughter rides her on the trails she immediately relaxes, goes on a loose rein and doesn't spook. We think with her forward movement and preference for trail riding on a loose rein, she is a great endurance prospect. Marion can really cover ground at the trot and has very smooth gaits. It is even easy to sit her big trot. She has good bone, a large heart girth (970 lbs) and would make a good horse for someone riding in the light weight or middle weight AERC divisions. With Marion’s conformation and movement, she would probably show well in Sport Horse In-Hand and should produce some nice sport horse foals, too. We think she would make a wonderful cross with our stallion Envoy. Marion is a beautiful mare that is ready for a new job in a loving home.
