About Horse:Valhalla is a 15.1h 2008 Purebred registered chestnut Arabian mare (AHA registration # is 0638471) that has been loved (but not spoiled) every day since she was born. She is an easy keeper and very lithe in build but has a deep heart girth, wide chest, good bone and straight legs that travel straight. She is very scopey. Her ancient lineage can be traced to many champions and famous horses.
She was harness trained when she was 3 for 60 days, but I have never harnessed her since. She also had 60 days of proficient professional training three years in a row starting when she was five. She has been used as a therapy horse for adults suffering from PTSD and grief. She is very sensitive, forgiving but needs to have a confident handler to do her best. She is a little ear shy once in a while (a trainer disciplined her by grabbing her ear and yanking- this was the only time she was mistreated, and she wasn’t with him for long!) and has been a good trail horse, but excels when another horse leads the way. She has no vices except for the ear thing mentioned previously and eating wood when bored- not cribbing. She has been sound everyday of her life, but does suffer from painful ovulation which can appear like colic, but with a little bute she is fine. This was more prevalent when she was younger.
I had a significant horse injury a few years back, so I have never cantered Val. Others have, but she is most steady at the walk and trot. She in not girthy. She lunges, ponies, nibbles from a slow feeding net, catches easily, loads easily and the farrier enjoys working under her. Val has never been shod and lives on a 6 acre dry lot so fresh grass would be novel for her. I use a snaffle with her, so I direct rein, but the training she had included working leg pressure and neck reining to a limited degree. Has lived with dogs, cats, chickens, alpaca and highland cattle.
