SIOUX IS A BIG, BEAUTIFUL AND ATHLETIC MARE WHO WAS SURRENDERED TO LONGMEADOW BECAUSE HER PREVIOUS HOME COULD NOT CONTINUE TO PROVIDE CARE. SIOUX HAS HAD PREVIOUS TRAINING FOR RIDING, AND WE ARE CURRENTLY WORKING ON BUILDING HER FITNESS. SHE WOULD BE A GREAT PLEASURE HORSE OR TRAIL HORSE FOR AN INTERMEDIATE RIDER, AND HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN A VARIETY OF DISCIPLINES. SIOUX IS AN INQUISITIVE HORSE WHO IS GAINING HER CONFIDENCE IN NEW SURROUNDINGS. SHE WOULD DO WELL WITH A CONFIDENT HANDLER WHO CAN PROVIDE HER WITH CONSISTENT EXERCISE AND TRAINING.
Update Fall 2016: Sioux required chiropractic care to recover from issues we discovered in her back. The chiropractor believes she had a very poor fitting saddle a long time ago which temporarily damaged her alignment. She is significantly improved and a much happier horse for riding.
