Sale Information

Girl Crush for Real!! Petite and Handy polo type gray mare for your enjoyment! 2015 15hh gray mare by Tale of Ekati. Retired in March of 2018 and donated to Turning for Home by owner Anthony Merlino, this game little filly retired sound but too small to be competitive at Parx. She had six months of down time, in which she grew at least 2 inches, and she has proven to be amateur friendly and easy to handle both on the ground and ridden by novice teen-aged riders. She is handy and turns well over her haunches, making her a nice polo, barrels, jumping or pony club mount. No vices, great attitude, willing and easy to be around, this mare could be competitive in any number of disciplines for riders who prefer the small and sweet package. She bravely took right to the trails and water puddles on first rides, and is basically a blank slate ready for a second career. She could make a young girl's dream come true but is rugged enough for the top polo riders.
