Shanghai Spring is very well mannered with loads of potential as a performance horse. She had 2 starts as a 2y/o before a silly puncture wound set her back and her owners decided her potential lies off the racetrack. Mei is surprisingly balanced for her age and size showing three beautifully smooth gaits with a very soft mouth. She is sound barefoot and ready to go in any direction.
She would fit right in doing dressage or hunter equitation with her style of movement, and has also stepped over poles and shows no hesitation when trying new things. She has hacked around the farm confidently with a friend, stands quietly in cross ties or in her stall, and enjoys attention. The video is of her first ride since coming to the farm! She was a bit tense, but tried hard and will only get better!
Mei is turned out with a group of mares and is happy in the middle/bottom of the pack. She is quiet and tries to stay out of trouble, and waits patiently for her turn. She has a great presence about her and appears much bigger than she is. She will do best with an intermediate rider, and would be great for someone with show aspirations.
Mei was adopted last fall and due to personal circumstances of her adopter, she is looking for a new home.
