Duchess is a kind natured, uncomplicated, bombproof mare suitable for a beginner or a family/guest horse. She has a lovely sitting trot. She hacks out alone or in company and goest w,t,c in the arena for any level rider. Duchess was a star this year at the Annual Model Railway Exhibit of the Science Museum of Virginia where she patiently and graciously allowed herself to be groped and pawed by hundreds of children...actually falling asleep at one point. An excellent breed ambassador!
