||Velvet stands 16 hands,
well broke with very nice gaits. She has been used as a ranch and trail
horse, however, I would not recommend her for cattle work as she is more
on the laid back side and prefers trail rides much over chasing cows around.
I purchased her as a mount for my nephew, a beginner rider, who loved her
gentleness and easy going nature.
Her size doesn't make her
a perfect kids horse, but if you are looking for a pretty family horse
that will keep up on trails and not get antsy you may want to meet her.
She is used to rough country, going up and down steep hills, through water
and creeks and over fallen timber.
We used her at the ranch
for guests and she is doing very well, following around, but also not getting
antsy when staying behind while her rider is unmounting. She is a great
follower but not a leader type, I would see her in a trail or outfitter
string rather than a horse that goes out alone even though I've done it
