THISBADGERPLAYSJAZZ is a 14.2hh thick made 3 yo AQHA mare that has a solid foundation and is ready for a job.

Sunfish came off the Bartlett Ranch in La Grange Wyoming and is among the last set of horses that they raised before the owner passed.

She had 60 solid rides of professional training this winter by Bruce Keller and has spent time on the flag and tracking live cattle. Since then she had a month off and saddled up with no fuss and rode right off. She will continue under saddle until the sale.

Sunfish is soft in the mouth, starting to move off your leg, started on a neck rein, wants to stop, and is as smooth to ride as you could want one. Since we just brought her in from being turned out she will shy at things every once in a while but is pretty easy to get along with and has never bucked, crow hopped, or done anything of the sort under saddle.

She has spent all 3 years of her life here navigating rough country in a big pasture and has the foundation to excel in the arena or on the ranch. Sunfishes eyes were tattooed last year and it really helps with the glare from the sun.
