Scarlet, the Grande Dame and lead mare at Giant Steps, is a Tennessee Walker. She’s a “type A” personality who loves to be in charge.   She’s the official greeter whenever someone enters the barn.  It’s no accident that she’s in the first stall.  She will even chastise you if you greet another horse first.  Scarlet is a born leader.  Mares and geldings follow her firm direction, and she even tries to direct people if given the chance. But Scarlet is a benevolent leader and she carefully protects her rider as one of her own. Scarlet teaches confidence.
