Samantha Samantha is a beautiful 27-year-old, 16.2hh Percheron / Thoroughbred cross mare. When she first entered the Lord Stirling Stable lesson program, Sam was ridden by advanced riders and was part of the stable’s drill team. She was also a favorite trail horse. Over the years she graduated to giving lessons to beginners, and she was again a favorite because of her cooperative nature and her willingness to do what even her inexperienced riders asked.
Samantha can no longer keep up with the demands of the daily lesson program, but she is vet-cleared to be lightly ridden 2 or 3 times a week at the walk, trot, and canter. She is comfortable and willing, and would be a great horse for someone who wants to do light-duty flat work.
She is looking for a forever home where she will continue to be loved and cared for. Can this pretty girl be the one you’ve been looking for?
