Gertie is a sweet and sensitive girl, she loves being groomed and getting all the scratches, especially on her forehead! Gertie is very in-tune with you and loves spending time just hanging out around the barn. She’s currently doing light riding: walk, gait, canter in a western saddle with a hackamore. She's very smart and eager to please, always checking in with you during your ride. She’s been off property a few times and enjoys exploring trails, but is sensitive to bugs, so she prefers to wear a fly mask!

Gertie is currently in front shoes and stands politely for the farrier. She is a gentle mare looking for a calm person to give her all the love and attention she deserves. If you’re looking for a horse to pamper and a trail riding buddy, Gertie might be just the one for you!
