Walk-Trot Beginning Rider Lesson Horse
People oriented, loves to be groomed and fussed over
Shown Class A Halter and Native Costume
Raises confident, people oriented foals
Sells with a breeding to Envoy BBF+ ($1,000 value)
We purchased Tora because she was a wonderful riding horse and exactly what we
were looking for to breed to our stallion, Envoy BBF+. She has a beautiful
halter horse head and neck, but the substance and correct confirmation of an
athletic sport horse. She had already qualified for the Regional Championships
in Eastern Canada in Halter and Native Costume.
The first 2 years we owned her,
she worked as our lesson horse for beginning riders learning how to post. Her
trot is smooth, steady and long, which is perfect for learning posting. She also
has a light mouth and responds easily to the lightest cues, great for teaching
new riders how to have good hands. She loves being groomed and handled too. When
you rub her with a rubber curry comb or your fingers, she will vigoursly rub you
too with her upper lip. She is the first horse we have had that responds to
grooming with mutual grooming of her owner!
After her 1st 2 yrs with us, she
produced 2 wonderful fillies by Envoy, born in 2005 and 2006. Tora is very
people oriented and allowed us to handle her babies as much as we wanted from
the very beginning. At only 2 days of age, both of her foals would come to us in
the pasture. They will whinny for us as soon as they see us and come running to
Tora has a lot of confidence and passes that trait on to her babies.
They are both fearless and curious, the type that will get into everything. They
also both have the beautiful head and athletic confirmation of their sire and
dam. Tora measures just over 15 hands and weighs 1000 lbs in fit condition. She
has a wide chest with a sloping shoulder, good withers, a deep heart girth and a
large powerful hindquarter. We had her heart measured by ultrasound because she
has a low resting pulse of 26 bpm and the test showed her to have a heart size
20% larger than the average heart (Perfect for endurance or racing!).
The undersaddle videos were taken after not being ridden since the birth of Encore in 2006 and she rode as if we had ridden her yesterday.
