Since coming to Footnote Farm, Taika has grown physically and mentally. She is now growing up as a young horse should with time to socialize, be well handled, and fed well with good veterinary and farrier care. She is naturally brave, quiet, and gentle taking no exception to tarps under her feet or over her head, walking over bridges and is a quick study during our short in hand sessions. In the spring, we'll restart her under saddle and she'll be ready to go. She will be an absolutely amazing trail horse and I can see her excelling at Mountain Trail and Competition Trail. She will be professionally restarted in the spring. More photos below. Please complete our online enquiry form https://goo.gl/forms/36TXUkDvSItrfqcF3 or email Jenny at firstname.lastname@example.org

Sold January 2018 ~ Tonka has been a fun addition for us at Footnote Farm but unfortunately hasn't found just the right niche in our lesson program. He loves to jump and be ridden outside. He would do well in a home with a novice with instruction and has an amazing canter and would be a nice first horse for long or short stirrup hunter and equitation riders. His flat work has come a long way so he will also do be fun to take to dressage shows up to First Level. He has amazing potential as a Vaulting horse as he has an easy, rythmic, go forever canter. A special guy!
