TACK FOR SALE

Mozart- Sale Pending

Barn Name: Mo

Year Foaled/Age: 2006, 12 years old

Color: Black

Sex: Gelding

Breed: Morgan cross?

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 15.2

Rider Level: Confident Intermediate under instruction or above

Discipline: Dressage prospect, Jumping prospect, Trails

Description: Mozart is a very sweet in our pocket gelding once he gets to know you. He can be a little standoffish at first until he begins to trust you. Mo lacks confidence in himself and humans. While we don't know where this stems from Mo would do best with someone with experience and that wants to work with him. He would not be a good pasture puff. He has far too much to offer and loves to work. If you try to force him to do something he freezes or tries to get away. If you calmly show him what is expected he will burst his heart to make you happy. He has a stunning floaty trot and would make a very cool dressage horse. Needs a person with a quiet, consistent hand to make him the gelding he could be. He has great ground manners but occasionally needs to be reminded to use them. Lunges well but tries to stop often (he is a bit over weight right now).

Health Notes: None. Mozart is sound and does not have any health issues.

St. Paddy's Gray- Currently Not For Sale due to injury

Barn Name: Puma

Year Foaled/Age: Feb. 24, 2013, 5 years

Color: Gray

Sex: Mare

Breed: Thoroughbred

Registration Association & Number: Jockey Club 1304681

Sire: Paddy O'Prado

Dam: Itsy Bitsy Kitty

Height: 16.1

Rider Level: Intermediate on the flat, Advanced over fences (simply due to lack of experience)

Discipline: English, Dressage, Jumping, Eventing

Description: Puma is a lovely, sweet mare that tries really hard to please you. She has a very nice floaty trot and forward, ground covering canter. Quiet and not fussy under saddle. 

Has fantastic ground manners. Not marish, gets along with anyone. Puma has been on a few trails and is a little jumpy but gains confidence every time we go out. Would be best for a quiet non fussy rider because she has a soft mouth and soft sides. She has the potential to be a very quiet kids horse. She is very good minded and level headed. Great for the farrier and currently barefoot. She will stand tied all day. No vices. Up to date on all cares except coggins. Gorgeous, eye catching mare with three lovely gaits.

Health Note: Puma fractured her tail head while on the track. Has no issues stemming from that injury.

Race Notes: Puma had 4 starts and was never in the top 3. Previous owner said she just didn't really have the desire to race. 

Kate- SOLD

Barn Name: Kate

Year Foaled/Age: 2006, 13 yrs old

Color: Chestnut

Sex: Mare

Breed: Paint

Registration Association & Number: None

Sire: Unknown

Dam: Unknown

Height: 14.2 hands

Rider Level: Advanced Beginner

Discipline: Trails

Description: Super sweet and in your pocket mare. She is easy to catch. She stands tied nicely. 

Easy to groom and tack. 1st ride after several years off was bareback with a halter and she never took a wrong step. She is for sale due to family health issues. She is looking for her next trail riding buddy. I think almost anyone could get along with her. She does need little reminders now and then to go where she was pointed and not wander off. No bolt, buck, rear, bite or other naughtiness in her. Will ride off down the trail alone if you are firm (just tries to turn around once in a while) and she will ride away from the group on the trail with no issues. Has a nice trot and lope though it takes a lot of work to get her into the lope. Rides in a snaffle or hackamore but is quieter in the hack. Will lead or follow. Has a big ground covering walk if leading. Adjusts her pace if following. Easy to load and unload. Has an amazing thick mane all the way to the bottom of her shoulder. Easy to get along with. I think with a little refresher she would easily be the one that you could toss anyone on regardless of experience. 

Heath Notes: Kate is sound and healthy. She did get her hind left leg hit when in the trailer by the horse next to her. It has been a bit stocked up since then. She is not unsound on it and the swelling should go down with time. 

Write Me a Love Song- SOLD

Barn Name: Lexi

Year Foaled/Age: 2010, 9 years old

Color: Chestnut

Sex: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse

Registration Association & Number: AQHA 5433600

Sire: Writin Radical Check

Dam: Zipped Up In No Time.

Height: 14.3

Rider Level: Advanced Beginner or above due to needing finish work

Discipline: Western Pleasure, Horsemanship, Showmanship, English, Jumping, Broodmare

Description: Lexi is an extremely sweet mare that came to me in July on consignment.

I ended up buying her myself and have been using her for lessons and students. She spent the last few years as a broodmare and never took a wrong step when we got her going back under saddle. Jogged off like she was in the show pen the day before not 3 years before. Phenomenal jog and good lope. Does neck rein as long as you use your legs. Works well off your legs. Likes to go slow but also has learned to stretch out a little for English. Cute little jumper but doesn't have much experience over fences. Fantastic personality. Hauled to a show just to see how she handled it and she was great. A little looky at first but never took a wrong step. Very good on trails as well. Stands tied quietly, great for the farrier, currently barefoot. Easy to load, haul and unload. No soundness issues. All cares are up to date except coggins. Video below is of Lexi when she had been back under saddle for only 3 weeks. I can make and send current videos for those interested. She is chubby and a bit out of shape right now, we have spent the fall hitting the trails when the mud isn't too bad.

Miss Marshmallow- SOLD

Barn Name: M

Year Foaled/Age: 2005, 14 years old

Color: Bay

Sex: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 14.3

Rider Level: Advanced Beginners in the arena, Intermediates on trails

Discipline: Trails, 4H, drill team?

Description: Super sweet, in your pocket little bay mare. Easy to get along with as long as you are kind to her. If you get forceful she gets nervous. Would prefer a soft, kind rider that had a bit of a clue what they are doing. Is fine with beginner kids but would be happier with someone that could really do some work with her. M would like to have a job. She would be great for someone that needs to check cattle or wants to train for competitive trail challenges. Even a 4-Her that spends a lot of time practicing and playing, not because she needs it (though she would benefit from a bit of a tuneup) but because she loves attention and working. M has a nice jog but her lope is a bit rusty. She hasn't been asked to canter in the time she has been a camp horse.

Health Note: M is a healthy girl who is up to date on all cares except coggins.

Sawyer- SOLD

Barn Name: Sawyer

Year Foaled/Age: 2002, 17 years old

Color: Sorrel

Sex: Gelding

Breed: Quarter Horse

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 15

Rider Level: Beginner on trails, Advanced Beginner in arena

Discipline: TRAILS!

Description:Sawyer is a sweet guy that we have only had for about a month. I bought him at an auction because he was very under weight and had hopes of using him as a lesson horse. Although we adore him (and wouldn't be sad to see him stay) he is not happy to be in the arena. Sawyer can be quite gate sour in the arena and while we are working through this if there is a trail home for him out there, that is where he would be happiest. Since coming home with us he has gained a little over 125 lbs but still needs to gain about 50 lbs. He is fantastic and very solid on the trails. We have had deer jump up about 10 feet from us out of the prairie grass and he barely noticed. He crosses the creek with ease. He will happily lead or follow and doesn't care where he is in the line. It doesn't bother him to have someone on his tail but he isn't one to crowd those in front of him.

He is a little buddy sour but just a few whinnies no fussing or fighting to turn around. Has gotten along with everyone we have put him in with, not top dog but not going to let himself get bullied either. Sawyer has a fantastic one hand neck rein and moves off your legs on the trails but all of that knowledge seems to go out of his head in the arena when all he wants to do it go to the gate. He has a nice little jog and is an easy ride on the trails. In the arena you spend most of your time directing him away from the gate! He loads, hauls and unloads nicely. We have recently discovered that Sawyer prefers not to go out alone. Given some time and work he would be fine but not currently ready for a beginner to take him on the trails alone.

Health/Soundness Notes: As far as we know Sawyer is a sound and healthy guy. I was told he is up to date on his shots but I do not have a current coggins. If you plan to ride rocky trails I would recommend a pair of front shoes as he has been a little tender across rock. We have had no issues with him other than needing to put some weight on him when we got him. We were told the previous owner ran out of hay and pasture. 

Bug- SOLD

Barn Name: Bug

Year Foaled/Age: 2009, 10 years old

Color: Black and White

Sex: Mare

Breed: Paint Pony

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 14.1

Rider Level: Intermediate on trails, Beginner in arena

Discipline: Trails, lessons, western pleasure prospect, english prospect

Description: Bug is a sweet, easy going little mare. She wants to please you and tries hard to do what is asked. She doesn't get upset or flustered when trying new things but looks to her handler/rider to see what is expected of her. Bug has been used the last several years as a camp horse and has done very well. When in new situations she lacks a little confidence which is why I have her listed for an intermediate on trails. A few deer jumped up about 10 feet from us and while her trail buddy Sawyer didn't blink she bolted forward. She was very easily stopped by her rider and settled right back into the ride but she did react. Bug has a super cute little jog and could easily be trained for shows. She would clean up in the pony classes. She loads, hauls and unloads quietly. Stands tied nicely, though tries to move to keep an eye on you. Bug has bee with the same camp herd for several years and they are always used together so she is a little buddy sour. She does not fuss and fight but does whinny for her pals, this has gotten better the more we have ridden her separate from them. 

Health/Soundness notes: None. Bug is sound and up to date on all cares except coggins. 

Steve- SOLD

Barn Name: Steve

Year Foaled/Age: 1999, 20 years old

Color: Sorrel

Sex: Gelding

Breed: Paint Pony

Registration Association & Number: None

Sire: Unknown

Dam: Unknown

Height: 16 hands

Rider Level: Beginner (with a little experience)

Discipline: Trails

Description: Steve is a BIG easy going guy. He has been used the last 7 years as a boy scout camp horse. He was easily one of the favorites. Great on trails, though gets a little pushy headed towards home. Is very safe and easy going. WIlling walk, trot and canter in the arena. He would not be suitable for jumping. He is easy to load, haul and unload. No vices. Only reason I say his rider needs a little experience is so they know to pick up their reins when he gets forward heading towards home.

Health/Soundness Note: Steve does have artiritis in his left hind and it has not been an issue. Just occasionally pulls out a hair stiff. 

Scarlet- SOLD

Barn Name: Scarlet

Year Foaled/Age: Feb. 3, 1998, 21 years old

Color: Chestnut

Sex: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse

Registration Association & Number: AQHA 3699297

Sire: Pretentiously

Dam: Troubles Beauty Bar

Height: 14.2

Rider Level: Advanced Beginners, Scarlet will need some ride time before being ready for complete beginners again

Discipline: Trails, horse baby sitter

Description: Scarlet spent most of her life as a broodmare. When she retired from having babies she came to camp to start a new career. Scarlet has fantastic ground manners and loves to be loved on. Not the first one to greet you in the pasture but it seems that is only because all the boss horses greet you first. Scarlet stands well to be groomed and tacked up. She lunges well and stands quietly to be mounted. She does not know how to neck rein and does not understand leg pressure. Scarlet would benefit from some ride time as right now she is very spoiled and gets a bit sour when asked to do something she doesn't want to do.

Health Note: Scarlet does suffer from heaves during the very hot, humid summer months. This is easily handled with an allergy shot. Scarlet also has a large scar down the right side of her barrel to her flank. It does not bother her in the slightest. 

Horses below were sold in 2018 or before

Easy to load, unload and haul. Easy to saddle and bridle. Love to jump, would also be a fantastic dressage prospect. Currently very forward over fences, not suited to a inexperienced rider. The more consistently she jumps the better she gets. Very forgiving when her rider makes a mistake. Also great on the trails. Had a ground covering walk. Not spooky- dogs, deer, turkeys, pheasant don't bother her. Does well ponying other horses. No soundness issues. Up to date on all cares except coggins. Mare is stunning in person, though is a bit faded in the video. Video below is of Leila from mid August 2018.

Barn Name: Lacey

Discipline: Western Pleasure, Horsemanship, Showmanship, Broodmare

Description: Super cute sorrel mare. She has been a broodmare for the past few years. Owner is downsizing. Lacey hadn't been ridden in several years and rode right off without a fuss. Great jog and even better lope, pretty much show ready depending on what level you want to show. Likes to go slow. Neck rein is solid as long as you also use your legs, working on weaning off legs. Rides very well in a robart pinchless reining bit. Hauled her to a show to see how she did and she was fantastic. Very tidy in her stall, not fussed by much. Easy girl to get along with. Only vice is she can be a little cinchy but that's it. Stands tied, loads/hauls/unloads quietly, great for the farrier, currently barefoot. No soundness issues. Up to date on all cares except coggins. Video below is of Lacey when on October 8th. I had never ridden her bridleless and decided to see how it went.

Dam: Unknown

Height: 15.1

Rider Level: Advanced Beginner 

Discipline: Trails, Western Pleasure

Description: Apollo has great ground manners and is a pleasure to ride. Three smooth and uncomplicated gaits both in and out of the arena. Apollo absolutely loves to trail ride. He goes up and down hills, crosses water, climbs over logs, rides alone or in a group. Not buddy sour, would happily leave a group to do his own thing. Has had dogs and deer jump out at him and nothing phases him. Moves off of leg pressure and is light and responsive in the mouth. Neck reins or direct reins. Rides quietly in a snaffle. Quiet enough for kids to handle him and has been used for lead-line lessons. Apollo has a lot of buttons so he needs a rider with control over their legs and hands. He has been hauled to several different shows and been ridden on off property trails. Loads and hauls great and is quiet in new environments. Stands tied all day to be groomed and loved on. Good for the vet and farrier and is up to date on all cares. Currently barefoot. Would make a great trail or a 4H horse for someone who wants to do the occasional fun show.

She is a pleasure to work with both on the ground and under saddle. Stands tied to be groomed, bathed, tacked, ect. She knows her leads and is very respectful to cues under saddle. She is not spooky, but has not been ridden outside of the arena. She has three beautiful, smooth gaits. She has one of the best canters I have ever ridden. She is not finished but has a great foundation for any discipline. She is up to date on all cares and is currently barefoot.

Erin's Golden Star- SOLD

Barn Name: Erin

Year Foaled/Age: 2005, 13 years old

Color: Chestnut

Sex: Mare

Breed: Thoroughbred

Registration Association & Number: Jockey Club 0524626

Sire: Cat Thief

Dam: Gold in My Stars

Height: 16.1

Rider Level: Advanced Beginner

Discipline: Trails, Western, English

Description: Erin was a broodmare for about 8 years after she was retired from racing. She is a very large mare. Not your typical narrow thoroughbred, she is built like a tank. She is a sweetheart and is very level headed and not spooky. Is used to deer, dogs, and birds jumping out at her. Will go anywhere you point her. Can be a bit stubborn leaving the barn for a solo trail ride but once out on the trails does great. Has no problems leaving in a group. Safe for anyone to ride in the arena and on the trails but has a forward walk. If you are looking for a safe, drafty type trail horse, Erin is your horse. She is up to date on all cares and is currently barefoot. Easy to load, stands tied all day.

King- SOLD

Barn Name: King

Year Foaled/Age: 2000, 18 years old

Color: Bay

Sex: Gelding

Breed: Quarter Horse

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 15.1

Rider Level: Beginners

Discipline: Trails, Lessons, 4-H

Description: King is a super sweet, easy going guy. He is easy to catch even out in the pasture. He lunges well but would rather not work so hard.

He has phenomenal ground manners and stands nicely to be groomed and tacked up. Easy to tack, can be a little girthy if you tighten to fast (just makes a face). He stands well to be mounted and waits to be asked to walk off. He does direct rein well and also has a nice neck rein. He has an awesome jog (maybe was a pleasure horse in another life?). Though he doesn't understand leg pressure so maybe not :). Gets along with everyone in the herd, not dominate or aggressive in any way. Super solid, easy going gelding.

Health/Soundness Notes: King does have some arthritis in his left hind leg, is easily managed with stretches before riding and giving him a long warm up if working in the arena. I would recommend if you are riding him often to consider a joint supplement. King also has a few small scars that are old and do not affect him in any way. He has a crack in his left front that is managed well with regular trimmings. It has never caused any issues. Farrier thinks this is easily fixable with a pair of front shoes for a few months, this was just not possible at camp. In the late spring early summer King is given an allergy shot to prevent skin allergies throughout the summer.

Fancy- SOLD

Barn Name: Fancy

Year Foaled/Age: 1997, 21 years old

Color: Dark Bay

Sex: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse

Registration Association & Number: Unknown

Height: 15.1

Rider Level: Advanced Beginners in the arena, Intermediates on trails

Discipline: Trails, 4H

Description: Fancy is a nice mare who has a little spunk. She has great ground manners and stands quietly for grooming and tacking up. Stands well at the mounting block and after you mount. 

Fancy does not know how to neck rein so you must direct rein. She is a forward moving mare that occasionally needs a reminder to walk instead of trying to trot. Fancy would benefit from some ride time before putting a beginner on her. Most of the camp horses have not been used since mid-summer.

Health Note: Fancy is a healthy girl who has only ever had minor injuries. 

Penelope- SOLD

Barn Name: Nellie

Year Foaled/Age: 2009, 9 years old

Sex: Mare

Color: Sorrel paint

Breed: Paint

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 14.3

Rider Level: Beginner

Discipline: Trails, Lessons, Jumping

Description: Nellie is a mare that I sold a year ago to a local family. They aren't riding her as much as they thought they would and contacted me to help find her a home.

She has only been ridden 3 or 4 times a month in the past year but before that she was being used consistently as a lesson and trail horse for riders beginner through advanced. Nellie was one of my most solid lesson horses and I would be more than happy to take her back but her spot has been filled in my program. She is an easy walk, trot, canter and loves to jump. Not spooky out o the trails. Once had a kid dive off her on a trail (our rule is if anyone falls everyone dismounts). Nellie's kid forgot to take her foot out of the stirrup when jumping off and ended up hanging off the side of Nel. What could have been an absolute disaster if Nellie had taken off ended up just being a funny story as she just patiently waited for me to come back and sort out the kid hanging from her. Nellie is never going to be a high level show horse or a grand prix jumper, however she is solid, trustworthy and SAFE. She loads, hauls and unloads easily and will stand tied all day.

Health/Soundness Notes: Nellie has never been lame in the entire time I have know her. She is up to date on all cares.
