Isabelle (“Izzy”) is a 2004, 16.2h Tennessee Walking Horse mare. Izzy has a history of EPM and Lymes and has had multiple rounds of treatment. Izzy’s owner has started her back under saddle for light trail work and has not seen any symptoms of EPM relapse. According to her owner, this reintroduction of work has changed Izzy’s demeanor for the better; she likes to have a job! However a companion home where she can relax and recuperate would also be a plus. Izzy is not a mareish mare, but she rules the herd at her current home. She’s excellent for the farrier (she’s barefoot), vet, and dentist. When sound for riding she is a staunch trail horse, with nothing causing her to misstep. She continues to be UTD on farrier work, dental, and deworming.
