About Grace - July 2010
Grace is a really pretty mare, nice
build, and a really nice
She was trained for Western
Pleasure, but never developed a truly competive slow gait or headset at
the lope. Her jog is quite good.
For the video, we pulled Grace out of
the pasture after she hadn't been ridden for quite a while, longed for
for a few minutes, and then Clara got on her and we started taping
without any real practice. Clara had never ridden Grace before, so you
can see they did pretty well.
Grace loads easily, stands for the
farrier, bathes, and has overall good manners.
She is just a good, solid, healthy,
sound and pleasant horse.
report, written Spring 2007
has a chunky build and wide chest typical of ranch-bred and foundation
quarter horses. With that is agility and good movement at the lope. She
has plenty of energy and is not a bit lazy.
recently hauled Grace to her first trail ride and she made us proud,
as she was great in the woods, crossing water and acting like an old
pro, not worried about leading, following, or being in the middle.

Grace basically looks like a bay, but she has a distinct dorsal stripe, showing that she inherited her mother's dun factor. Her dam is Glorious Grace, our grullo mare who went to Germany. Grace's only white is the blaze.
