Crystal is one of those special lesson horses that could be ridden and loved by everyone. She was always our choice for children on the trail, even though she is so big. Adults gravitated to her because of her sleek appearance and humble personality. She is kind, patient and willing to please.

In late 2013 Crystal started to do a little "hop" during her upward transitions into the trot. We initially thought it was her back that was causing her issues so she recieved a number of chiropractic adjustments, particularly in her hips. However, as time passed the "hop" came back, as did a limp in her hind left leg.

We took Crystal to Cornell University Equine Hopsital where X-Rays showed that she had an arthritic fracture in her hock. Arthritis had built up a bone spur which had broken off and was floating in the joint. As a result, some days Crystal is 100% a-okay and enjoys a nice walk out on trail; however, other days the chip floats around and iritates the joint causing her to be lame.

Right now she is still capable of (understanding she has random bad days that pass):
- Walking Trail Rides
- Jungle Gym for Kids, she is VERY VERY safe
- Pasture Companion
- Broodmare

Crystal is also one of our best broodmares that we have ever owned. Her babies have been not only particularly gorgeous and well built, but incredibly sane, calm and easily trainable.
