Tell us about your Pinto:Nadia was orphaned at 5 weeks and then raised by a 29 year old quarter horse mare. At 3 years of age she began her training under saddle. At the age of 5, Nadia was registered Pinto Breeding Stock and she and Breanne entered their first Pinto show in April 2009. Nadia was shown by Breanne under saddle and in Halter by Judy Daugthery (Open) and by Breanne (Youth). By the end of 2009, Nadia had earned her ROM in Halter and was named 2009 Horse of the Year-Breeding Stock Halter Pleasure Type Mare. On Christmas day 2010, as a gift, Breanne Little was given part ownership of Nadia and her AHA and PTHA registration papers were changed to reflect her joint ownership along with her Aunt and Grandfather.
