Horse: Cinnamon, a 23-year-old 16-hand chestnut American Paint mare in Hastings, Minn.
Organization: This Old Horse



Cinnamon is just a little spicy but mostly sweet. She is a 23-year-old American Paint standing at roughly 16 hands. She has done a number of disciplines, including dressage, jumping and trail riding. At her age, Cinnamon would make a great horse for someone just getting started in any of these areas. Cinnamon does like her food and is a bit of a hard keeper. She needs wetted grain/alfalfa pellets twice a day all year-round, which may need to be upped in the winter. Cinnamon is not a true beginner horse, because she can be a bit in your space on the ground (the spice). You need to be able to remind her of her manners. Other than this, she is sweet and lovely! Everyone needs a little spice in their lives—maybe yours is Cinnamon!
