This young mare is the total package in every way, and a rare offering you won’t find anywhere else. Cristel is a coming 4yr old registered IDSHR dark palomino mare that stands 16.3hh. She is sired by a registered Suffolk stallion and out of a quarter / percheron cross mare, and her conformation boasts the best of that combination. She has a ton of bone, substance & foot to her with the hip and back of a quarter horse. The gentle easy going demeanor of a draft horse combined with the athletic ability and deeper hock action of a quarter horse. Cristel has had the right foundation laid on her, being in consistent training her entire 3yr old year with the same trainer. She is extremely smart, easy to train and an absolute joy to work with. She rides well in the arena with all the buttons, finished in the bridle, side pass, pivot, lopes right off on cue, collects up, and stays soft. Rides the same in a snaffle or completely bridle less and bareback. Navigates steep and thick terrain with ease, water crossings, or will go right down the highway alone or in a group. She is also very well broke to drive and has been used to mow the hay fields, and as a family buggy horse to town. Cristel has also been used to help start colts, lead a pack string, and lots of trail and road miles. She also is quite impressive at liberty work and continues to impress us every day. The possibilities with her are endless, and her value goes beyond her ability in the saddle or harness, as she will also be a huge asset to anyone’s breeding program in the future. 5 panel clean, carries a cream modifier, and family owned & raised. She is 100% in every way. Call 319-264-0362 for more info.
