This mare is a sound and finished ready to rodeo heel horse. My son won the NWOJR Finals 2012 on her as well as many open, and US ropings. Calm in the box, knows her job and eager to do it. She will make any experienced heeler a great partner, she is an easy keeper. When kept in barn she turns dark blue with dapples skunk main and tail, cowboy horse. Not only is she good in the pen but good in the pasture, she can go all day without breaking a sweat. She has a good handle rides with a simple hackamore, plenty of gas. She has won a number of US ropings anywhere from #8s to #12s. She is just an all around great horse. Thank you for your interst.
