RHF Hickory Wind (“Jezabel”)
Jezabel is a registered Rocky Mountain (gaited) mare, 15H, 5 years old, dark chocolate with flaxen mane and tail. Sire: RRF’s Livin Legend, Dam: LS Desert Wind
We brought Jezabel home as a yearling, and have done lots of different things with her since then. She’s been exposed to lots of various obstacles on the ground (tarps, bridges, poles, etc). She’s been easy to load/unload in the trailer.
I started her under saddle when she turned 3, and ponied her with someone on her back for the first 5 rides. She didn’t get much other work that year, as I had a number of other horses to ride. In 2014, I started riding her more, and completed 66 rides on her, mostly on a trail near our home. She learned how to cross water perfectly. This year, as of 3/10/2015, I’ve put 30 additional rides on Jezabel. I’ve done lots of dressage type exercises with her, trying to instill more roundness and balance into her frame.
She’s easy to handle on the ground, and accepts her vaccinations and worming from me without any protest.
Under saddle she’s been doing well, however, she is not a finished horse. I’m still working on her gait a little, and I am planning to do her certification video in the next month. I would not recommend her for a beginner rider, as she just needs some extra help right now balancing herself in her gait. I usually ride her out alone, and the maximum amount of horses she’s been out with at one time is 3.
So, she’s really a sweet mare who always looks to me when I’m going out to ride (she gets bummed if I take her pen mate). She isn’t quite finished yet, but won’t take much. I just have way too much on my plate at this time, so I have decided to let her go.

She will be given her yearly vaccinations in May if not sold by them, is up to date on worming, and just had her teeth floated by Dr. Shull in Olathe on March 9. She’s currently barefoot, and is due for her trim on March 16.
