Hi, my name is Magdalene, but my friends call me Maggie. I am 11 years old and I am looking for my next partner. He or she needs to love to ride either English or western, alone or in a group, go on trail rides, complete obstacles, and enjoy walking, trotting and cantering. I have been professionally trained, so I have good ground manners, load well, stand nicely for the farrier and the vet. The only vice that I do have is that I prefer not to be stalled and crib. So, if you are looking to go on your next adventure with a willing partner, give my caretakers a call because I’m your girl.
