2014 Gray Mare

DLL GunninTexasTrash - AQHA

Texas is a true-blue Diamond horse that has lived every day of her life on the ranch. She is a daughter of our great Playgun Will Travel out of one of our top producing mares, and one look at her and you can see she oozes quality! I started Texas under saddle as a two year old and she was truly the easiest horse I have ever started— I put the saddle on and started riding her! She is incredibly trainable and smart, and has shown natural cow sense since the first day I had her on cows. Her laid back disposition and gentleness made me confident and comfortable riding her even through both of my pregnancies, and she has never taken a wrong step or done anything out of line with me. She’s gathered pastures, sorted alleys, wrangled horses, trail ridden and dragged the log. She has also competed Ranch Sorting in the Western Heritage classes where she started out very well and has already won some money and prizes. In the arena, she has all the handle you could want: she lopes soft circles, stops hard, spins a hole in the ground and has whole body control, all the while maintaining a beautiful head carriage that will make you drool. She’ll stop off of a simple “whoa” and has a one-handed neck rein that make her easy and light to ride. Even as a young horse, she is gentle, willing, kind and talented to go anywhere with anybody. I’ve absolutely loved the last three years of riding this special mare; if I had my way I would keep her forever and in a few years she would be teaching my daughters to ride!
