BVF's Unsung Melody

Melody is a gorgeous chocolate 6 y.o. RMHA/KMSHA mare, (DOB 04/24/13). She has a dappled milk chocolate coat, with a snow white mane & tail. Melody will likely mature around 15-15.1hh, with a compact, feminine build. She has the prettiest little head too, just like her Mamma, and pure white eyelashes so she will stay a white mane & tail girl! Melody's bloodlines include the famous stallions “Blue Smokin Sambo”, “Sam Clemon's Tim”, and “Tobe”. Watch out for this girl she's going to be an eyecatcher!!

Melody is started under saddle, and she is coming along very well! Melody is learning the ropes of being a riding horse; developing her rhythm & balance, learning the beginnings of collection, and strengthening her gaiting muscles. Melody's gait is progressing wonderfully, and she consistently picks up the gait everytime she is asked. Typical of the mountain horse breeds her gait is very low shuffling, close to the ground, and increadibly smooth! Melody has begun learning her lateral work under saddle (independent hip/shoulder control, leg-yielding, side-passes, turns on the forehand & hind, etc.), though she already knows how to do all of this lateral work on the ground. Melody was started under saddle in the fall of 2015, and to date her training has included round pen, sand ring, arena, road, and small trail work. In the round pen starting even as a foal she learned bending/sending, lateral/vertical flexion, lounging (both free and on line), back-up, etc. In the sand ring, starting even before she was weaned, Melody learned to complete a trail course. Including going over a bridge, through a gate, pole bending, dogs-leg back-up, standing on a tarp, through a cowboy curtain, walking through water, etc. Melody is ridden regularly up and down the roads to become confident working around cars, etc., and goes out into the trails surrounding our farm. Shortly, Melody will start trailering out all over Ontario to some of our favorite regional forests were her camping and trail riding experience will truly begin!
