Mariposa is a beautiful pinto mare with a butterfly on her shoulder. She has completed 60 days of training with Monty Roberts. She is a great walk-trot-canter horse and has had an introduction to trails and lots of exposure to obstacles. Mariposa is a simply stunning mare and ready for her new forever home. Could she be your #righthorse?
