Description: Nova was purchased as a 2 year old and turned out to grow until she turned 5. In that time she had been handled daily with some additional groundwork. In the summer of 2018, she spent 30 days with a trainer to get her started under saddle. She had been ridden only 2-4 times per week through August and sporadically in September. She has had time off since then due to schedule. She has not yet been pushed or worked hard in hopes of giving her a long career. Only selling due to lack of time and switch in focus/discipline. She is a laid back kind of mare, but has occasionally kicked out when she is frustrated or doesn’t understand something. Because of that I would probably grade her at about a 5 temperament. Nova has good, solid feet and has always been barefoot. I would expect her to do well on cattle but has not yet been exposed to them. Nova is more curious than anything. In hand, she has been able to cross water, tarps, drag milk jugs, open umbrellas, etc with ease. I haven’t had time to do those things under saddle yet though (with the exception of crossing water). She will need work on her trailering skills. She is not a fan of my small 2 horse straight load trailer. She might walk right into one that is bigger, brighter or a slant load. It has been almost 4 years since she has been loaded into a slant load. She has so much potential and needs a job that she can excel at!
