ARRIVED AT ATR:
Jump Start - Risingalma, by Risen Star
Something Cinca was adopted in March of 2022 by Liz in Maryland. Liz is excited to bring her home as a potential lesson and program horse. She got her fitted for a saddle the day after arrival which shows she's setting her up for success. Can't wait to hear how she does.
Something Cinca is a 7 year old, bay mare who originally came to us by way of New Start to Horses in Pennsylvania. She is the full brother to another ATR graduate called Something Quinto. She was adopted in 2019 but unfortunately was returned due to financial difficulties. This sweet mare is by Jump Start and out of a Risen Star mare and only raced one time (slowly).
Her heartbroken adopter says she's a wonderful mare that is always the same with or without time off. Just a nice mare to ride with no vices. We've had several rides on her now that she's back and she's a forward thinking horse that LOVES to work. She can't get enough of work, and is very fit. Even though that sounds like a lot, she's actually very soft and very eager to please. She's hopped over some cross rails and logs with us as well with zero drama or hesitation.
We also have taken her to Fair Hill twice for some pretty long trail rides and she's been a star. She's gone over rickety bridges over the road, tunnels under the road, through big open fields, tight woods, played in a LOT of water (which she LOVES) and hasn't had a spook yet, in spite of deer, bikers, and other things giving her plenty of opportunities. We even recently used her to teach a rider how to gallop because she is just so lovely, balanced, and kind. She took great care of her and the rider was grinning ear to ear afterward.
She passed her vet evaluation with flying colors. Sound, no issues, and no expected limitations. She does have a steep wither and slight sway back that will take some serious saddle fit consideration, but she's absolutely worth taking the time to get that right.
Lastly she has no real vices. She can be a bit pushy on the ground, especially after the ride when she thinks she should be able to rub her head on you, but we are working with this and consistency will get it taken care of. Definitely worth your consideration.
