Steady and Reliable Partner
2002 14.1hh Bay Paint mare
"Panda" is a flashy mare with a solid foundation in harness. She has been driving for many years as a pleasure pony. She goes down the road, out on the trails, and has done some ring work. She is road safe and goes where you steer with confidence. Panda stands quietly to be hitched and has excellent manners in the barn. She also loves to be ridden out on trail rides alone or with company. We hope to do some pleasure show and combined driving events with Panda in the future. She is not a Connemara but a treasured family member here at the farm nonetheless.
