Lovely 8 year old sorrel mare for sale LTE $5,757.00 3 futurity shows and 1 derby. Mara was started and shown as a working cowhorse by John Swales and unfortunately sustained a stifle injury at the beginning of her 4 year old year. Another horse trainer purchased the horse gave her some additional time off and started her back up again late in her 5 yr old year. In her 6 year old year (2019) their son showed her in the youth reined box cowhorse classes, where they had lots of success! She was used to trail ride, handled by kids/rode by kids, she was rode English and went through some cross country courses etc. May of 2020 I purchased Mara, started riding her took her to the mountains all summer and started to focus on doing some cow work and some reining so I got her going taking lessons went to a cowhorse clinic and then put her in training with a cowhorse trainer so she was ready for me to show at the fall Alberta reined cowhorse shows. Unfortunately for us she got hurt, blows her stifle again (Sept 2020). So there goes the end of my showing. After being looked at by a vet I proceeded to do a PRP treatment and complete the recovery program of 2 months stall rest and then small turnout building up to full turnout With 9 months off And then starting to bring her back slowly. Everything went smoothly on that end and she is riding sound today (November 2021). my plan was to breed her in 2021 to Smooth as a Cat, however at some point she absorbed the pregnancy and it was too late in the year for me to try again to the same stud. so at that point my plan was to try again in 2022 (Which will still be my plan if I don't find the right home for her). She is a phenomenal arena, trail and kids horse. She is currently being used by a theraputic riding association for disabled kids and adults and being ridden 3 times per week in the program and I am now back riding her 2-4 times a week in addition to get her back into shape, however I am not selling her as performance sound. She is a lovely mare and will make someone very very happy! She is very broke, knows her lead changes, stops, spins, backs etc, ride her bareback, or in a saddle (English/western) it doesn't matter, full bridle or a halter you are good to go. I ride her down busy roads, she's been to numerous arenas, in  box stall, turned out paddock pasture you name it she has done it. Easy to get along with (other horses) lower in the pecking order. No quirks at all, no buck, bolt, rear. I hopped on her after 9 months off and rode her bareback down the road and she felt like she never missed a beat. She sells with or without a breeding to Smooth as a Cat in 2022 and the price will reflect one or the other depending on the desires of the purchaser. I have lots of photos and lots of videos and I can get more too.

The last photo is Mara's baby by Cats Picasso (3 year old 2021) and she has successfully been shown in the Open Cutting, she was reserve Champion at the Northern Alberta Reined Cow Horse Club's Futurity that just took place in October. 

I am asking $8500 without the breeding and $11,000 with the breeding. Breeding fee was $2500 USD. She is located in dewinton and can arrange for transport to the US or Canada. 

Best way to reach me is via text to start, as my cell phone is used for work too and I stop answering calls that I don't recognize after 6pm.
