Breed Incentives: AQHA Incentive Fund
Mila is a beautiful bay mare by the hottest sire in the industry, RL Best Of Sudden. She is super sweet and great to be around. She loves to be brushed and loved on. She has been shown in western pleasure, trail and horsemanship. She's had very limited showing due to owner finances but was very good at the shows. Easy to show, not spooky but she does best if she's on Regumate (or similar drug) if being shown year round.
She has had 1 foal, a beautiful 2020 bay filly by Blazing Hot. She was very easy to breed (took on the first try) and is a great mother.
Mila had some soundness issues off and on her 3 and 4 year old year. However, the vet was not able to definitively diagnose the cause. We just gave her some time off and that seemed to help. She was in training for almost a year prior to breaking her jaw (see note) and she was sound the whole time she was in training and while being shown. She is currently sound.
Mila is an outstanding broodmare. Her full sister is the dam of KM Flat Out The Best (Champion of the 2018 Pleasure Versatility Challenge at the AQHA World Show). She is 4 panel negative. N/Herda. She is homozygous black (she won't throw a red foal).
Open - 7 Trail points.
Amateur - 3 L1 Western Horsemanship points.
3rd West L1 Championship 3YO Halter Mare.

Mila had some soundness issues off and on her 3 and 4 year old year. However, the vet was not able to definitively diagnose the cause. He thought she was just being pushed too hard.
