Breed: Tennessee Walking Horse

Size: 15.1HH

Age: 12


Misty is an approximately 12 year old Black Tennessee Walking Horse.  She is registered, but her registration did not transfer during the neglect seizure she came from, and we are unsure of her registered name.

Misty has excellent ground manners, leads well, loads,  and stands  straight or cross tied.  She is a very good natured horse.  She is a big stout walker with a lot of power.  She is not mare-ish and gets along well in the herd including mixed herd environments.  Misty is an absolute gem of a horse in the field, and would be an exceptional companion for a show horse.

We do not feel Misty should be ridden..

She has been trained by multiple trainers including  Mountain Creek Farm and Perry Neal, ridden on big open farm fields, around cows, and has extensive experience under saddle, and by all rights is a well educated mount; but Misty is very opinionated and it is hit or miss on whether she is willing to take a rider.  On good days her training shows, and she is safe and steady. On days when Misty doesn’t want to work she is a bucking bronco, and she WILL unseat her rider.  She doesn’t have a loose screw, she isn’t uneducated, she is simply willing to put in whatever work is necessary to assert herself and make herself be heard.  Given this, we are adopting Misty out to a home as a pasture pet/companion/non riding horse, and in line with that we are waiving her adoption fee.  This mare has had thousands invested in her training; is fully up to date on vet care, and is an exceptional horse for your field.  If you aren’t a rider, but love horses, Misty is one you should not pass up.
