Montana- $1100 OBO 

Barn Name: Monte

Year Foaled/Age: 2015, 5 years old

Color: Black

Sex: John

Breed: Mule

Registration Association & Number: Grade

Height: 14 hands 

Rider Level: Advanced

Discipline: Trails, packing, shows

Description: Monte is a very quiet minded john mule. He loves people and is the first to meet you at the gate. He has great ground manners and loves to be groomed. Monte stands well for the farrier but has not needed any vet care since coming so I am not sure how he is with needles. Monte stands tied nicely but would rather not stand alone. If he is alone he will paw. 

Monte saddles and bridles nicely. He is started on ground driving and mounting. He has been ponied and ponies well. He is a bit spooky ponied out on the trails. Monte gets alone with everyone we have put him in with but he is a bit pushy about breakfast and dinner. We feed all of our horses in feed bags and since Monte doesn't get his own he takes off everyone else's bags to share their grain. Monte doesn't mind dogs when he is out but if they go in his pen when he is loose he will chase them out. He doesn't mind the cats in the slightest. Everyone adores Monte and we are very happy for him to stay but with the kids going back to school I don't have as much time for projects and he is being pushed to the back burner. 

Health Notes: Monte is a healthy guy that is up to date on all cares. 

Felix- $1400 OBO 

Barn Name: Felix

Year Foaled/Age: 2014, 6 years old

Color: Bay

Sex: Gelding

Breed: Quarter Pony

Registration Association & Number: Grade

Height: 14 hands 

Rider Level: Advanced

Discipline:  English, Over Fences, Trails, Eventing

Description: Felix is a super sweet gelding that I haven't had long. I am perfectly happy to keep him and continue his training but if the perfect home came along for home I would be ok with that. He came with a gelding that I was purchasing for my program. Felix stands tied quietly and loves to be groomed. He stands quietly for the farrier but is a bit skittish of needles when it comes to the vet. If you cover his eye and distract him he stands alright. Felix loaded well but backed off a bit quickly when I brought him home. 

Felix lunges well. He stands quietly to be saddled and bridles easily. He ground drives very nicely. Felix stands quietly for mounting and is easy to walk-trot.  On his very first ride my student did a flip off of him to dismount. Felix gets along with pretty much anyone I have put him in with. He gets along with them so well that he let one of our new mares chew his tail off. Other than the short tail he is a super cute, quiet minded little gelding that has a big career ahead of him. 

Felix has gained approximately 60 pounds but still needs to gain another 60. Now that his teeth have been floated he is having a much easier time eating and not dropping all of his feed. 

Felix's price will increase with more training, please contact me for a current price. I actually would prefer to keep Felix as I am really enjoying working with him but with students going back to school I don't have as much time for projects. Felix is not getting the attention that he deserves. 

Health Notes: Felix is healthy and up to date on all cares. He had his teeth floated in August 2020. He is missing one lower molar and due to this he will need to have he teeth checked and floated on a regular basis.

Fiona- $2200 obo

Barn Name: Fiona or Fi

Year Foaled/Age: 2018, 2 years old

Color: Sorrel

Sex: Mare

Breed: POA/Welsh cross

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 13.2 hands

Rider Level: Intermediate

Discipline:  Trails, Western Pleasure, English Pleasure, Dressage, Jumping, All-Around

Description:  Fiona has great ground manners. She is very easy to catch. She stands nicely in the cross ties. She stands nicely on our patience poles as well. She is great for the vet and farrier. She has decided that she LOVES baths and even likes to stick her head into the spray of water.

   Fiona is coming along very well under saddle . She is sweet and willing. She has a great jog and a great lope. Both are very naturally slow. She knows her leads. She has begun working on leg pressure and is doing very well. I have been using her for lessons for advanced beginner students and above. Fi is fantastic on the trails. She is happy to lead or follow. She will cross the creek and go through the deeper water without hesitation. She doesn't mind the dogs racing in and out of the grass and timber in the slightest.  I had to use her to catch up to a pony that was trying to lay down in the pond and she happily complied. I have started using Fiona for lessons and she is doing very well. Price will go up with continued training so price listed above may not be current. I am really looking forward to see where Fiona's training takes us. She is a very quiet minded little mare. If the perfect home comes along I would be ok with selling her. 

Health Notes: Fiona is healthy and up to date on cares. I did have her wolf teeth pulled soon after I got her. She is currently hip high as she is growing so we aren't pushing her hard under saddle. 

LUVMEAGOODCOWBOY- $6500

Barn Name: Poppy

Year Foaled/Age: 2012, 8 years old

Color: Bay

Sex: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse

Registration Association & Number: AQHA 5458777

Height: 15.2

Rider Level: Intermediate 

Discipline: Ranch Horse, Ranch Horse Shows, Trails

Description: Poppy is a very well built, thick, correct mare. She has impeccable ground manners. She meets you at the gate, ties, loads, unloads, stands for the farrier and the vet. Poppy's current owner purchased her to be used as a trail horse and for her beginner grandkids to take lessons on. While she absolutely adores Poppy, it is clear that Poppy would prefer to have more of a job. Poppy has a great handle on her. Soft mouth, easy neck rein, soft and responsive to your legs. Knows her leads, can pivot and side pass. She does have a bit of a motor but nothing extreme. She is easy to push out and comes back quietly. She is currently ridden in a snaffle. 

    Poppy is fantastic on trails. If you want a horse to work all week and then trail ride on the weekends this is your girl. She is not spooky and if something happens she startles in place without moving her feet. She will walk out a bit at the beginning of the trail but settles in after a few minutes and is a nice relaxing ride. Poppy did best when hauled to my place where I have a lot of CRP and timber. At the barn where she boards they have open fields and she was a bit concerned about watching where everyone in the pastures were and was a little jumpy without a trail buddy. Poppy does need a rider with a bit of confidence as she can be a bit hesitant when she comes across new things. With a confident rider guiding her she will go through anything. If she is uncertain of anything she will also follow a trail buddy with ease. She crosses water and has gone over/under/through anything I've pointed her at. 

    Poppy would also be an ideal ranch horse (either show or working). She has a soft jog but covers some ground. great rocking horse lope that is super easy to sit. She has the potential to be a rope horse as well but we have never swung a rope off of her. I have only ridden Poppy three times for her owner. Once to help them decide if she needed more of a job than they could provide and twice to get videos. She was a joy to ride each time. Honestly if I needed another personal horse she wouldn't currently be listed. 

    The right home and match for Poppy is the most important thing to her current owners. She is located in Waverly, IA. Additional pictures and videos are available. Don't miss out on this amazing girl, she won't be on the market long I am sure!

Health Notes: None. Poppy is sound in every way and does not have any health issues. 

My Kind Of Town- $9500

Barn Name: Auggie

Year Foaled/Age: 2011, 9 years old

Color: Bay

Sex: Gelding

Breed: Thorougnbred

Registration Association & Number: N/A

Height: 16.1 hands

Rider Level: Beginner flat, Intermediate Jump/Trails

Discipline: Hunters, Dressage, Cross Country, Eventing, Trails

Description: Auggie is not your typical thoroughbred. He never made it to a race even though he was started on the track because he was just too slow. Due to this he was never tattooed. Auggie being too slow for the track has made him the perfect lesson horse and hunter. Auggie has phenomenal ground manners. He ties and cross ties (though he will occasionally untie himself). He loads and unloads well. He stands quietly for the vet and farrier. He is higher in the pecking order in our herd but he is not a jerk about it. He is currently on 24/7 turnout with 12 hrs in a dry lot during the day and 12 hours on grass in the pasture at night. Auggie is a fairly easy keeper for a thoroughbred. I trust him with even my littlest students on the ground. He leads and picks up his feet quietly for even my youngest students. Auggie does not have any vices. 

   Auggie does beginner through advanced lessons. The advanced kids do ride him in spurs and the intermediates ride him with a crop as he is a true kick ride. The walk-trot kids are forced to learn to actually use their legs. He is sweet and honest. Auggie knows his leads and collects well for the students that know how to ask for it. We have done mostly flat work with him over the past year but we have done some jumping. My program doesn't have a lot of students that jump and Auggie's talent and potential are being wasted as a lesson horse. We have jumped him somewhat consistently up to 2'3" but we have free jumped him 4'. He cleared 4' like it was nothing. 

   Last November we took Auggie to the ISU IHSA show and he was one of the favorite draws for the weekend. He was consistent and quiet for even the most nervous riders that drew him. We have hauled him to a few other small shows. We had planned on really starting to show him this year but with COVID and most events being cancelled we haven't shown at all this year. I do use Auggie for all level students when jumping. He is honest and does not get super forward to fences. Auggie did have show experience with his previous owner. The two show pictures are with his previous owner. Auggie still has some things to learn before being ready to show but 

   Auggie is good on trails as well. Auggie is not spooky but can be a little looky at new things. Due to being a little looky I don't use Auggie for beginners on the trails. He is used to the dogs racing in and out of the timber and tall grass.

   I am not in a hurry to sell Auggie. His price will be negotiable to the right home. I adore this horse but I need to cut back on numbers unfortunately. If a few others sell first Auggie will be taken off the market. 

Health Notes: None. Auggie is sound in every way and does not have any health issues. 

Sold Horses

Grace- Sale Pending 

Barn Name: Grace/Gracie

Year Foaled/Age: 2011, 9 years old

Color: Sorrel

Sex: Mare

Breed: QH/Haflinger Cross?

Registration Association & Number: Grade

Height: 15 hands 

Rider Level: Beginner 

Discipline:  Trails

Description: Gracie is a SUPER sweet mare that I've had for a few months. Before coming to me she was mostly a pasture puff but also did a little trail riding and some pony rides. I got Grace with the hopes of using her for beginner trails and lessons. Although Grace is FANTASTIC on trails she would really rather not be a lesson horse. She will make it two or three laps around the arena and then plant her feet and refuse to move. 

   Out on trails Grace has not taken a wrong step. She is happy to lead or follow. She is not spooky in the slightest. In fact we were on one trail where the two horses in front of her spooked at a turkey. The mare in front took off into the CRP field and the gelding directly in front of Grace spun around and slammed into her. Grace didn't move a muscle and stood quietly until the front two sorted themselves out. 

   She stands straight tied and in the cross ties quietly. She stood great for the farrier and for the vet to check her teeth. She is easy to groom, saddle and bridle. She is lower in the pecking order in our large herd. Grace gets along with everyone we have put her with. 

   I am perfectly happy for Grace to stay with us but I think she would be happier in a home that only used her for trails and riding around the farm. 

Health Notes: Grace is healthy and up to date on all cares including current coggins. 

Oliver- Sale Pending

Barn Name: Oliver

Year Foaled/Age: 2005, 15 years old

Color: Grey

Sex: Gelding

Breed: Quarter Horse

Registration Association & Number: AQHA but no transfer 

Height: 16 hands

Rider Level: Advanced Beginner

Discipline:  Trails

Description:  Oliver had been owned by one family the majority of his life. Through a series of events he came to Kyhlwood very sore and very thin. After having a full vet examination, Oliver tested positive for Lyme Disease. After a full month of IV antibiotics Oliver is feeling MUCH better. He has gained approximately 150 lbs but still needs to gain muscle over his top line. We started riding him out on the trails and he is fantastic. He is not spooky and loves the trails. Oliver is not a slow plodder and prefers to walk out. We are taking it slow and not pushing him too hard too fast. He has a great walk-trot but we have not cantered him yet.

Oliver stands tied and stands quietly in the cross ties. He loads and unloads well. He does currently turn to walk off instead of backing off due to lack of muscle in his hind end. Oliver gets along with everyone and his best friend is a mini mare named Nugget. Ollie is a BIG guy. He stands a true 16 hands and is built like a linebacker. 

Oliver's price will increase with more training, please contact me for a current price. I am happy for Oliver to stay as long as he needs to build up his muscle and get back into the swing of things but if the right home is out there for him I am happy for him to find his new family.

Health Notes: Oliver is now up to date on all cares. He does have a history of Lyme disease. He has been treated and has no lasting symptoms. Oliver does have arthritis in his knees, it doesn't seem to bother him but I want his new family to be aware that it is there. Oliver is currently wearing front shoes with pads. Our farrier does not believe this is be something that will need to be continued long term. We decided to shoe him because of the very poor condition his hooves were in when he came. 

What Happens in Vegas- SOLD September 2020

Barn Name: Vegas

Year Foaled/Age: July 11th 2010, 10 years old

Color: Dark Bay

Sex: Gelding

Breed: Paint/Hackney cross

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 12.3 hands

Rider Level: Intermediate

Discipline:  Jumper, Mounted Pony Games, Eventing, English Pleasure, Dressage

Description:  Vegas is a super fun, smart, spunky pony. He wants a different job than he currently has. Current owner wants to do hunters and Vegas would be much happier as a jumper or eventer. Vegas is sweet and honest pony 95% of the time and the other 5% he is a very typical pony. His current rider has done very well with him but wants something with less pony attitude. 

   Vegas has great ground manners. He is easy to load and unload. He is good for the vet and farrier. He will stand tied all day but does know how to take his halter off if he is straight tied and will leave to eat grass. He is easy to catch and gets along with everyone in the pasture. He likes having a play buddy to be goofy with. 

   Vegas has a motor and likes to go. He would be the ideal pony for a kid wanting to do pony club mounted games, eventing or jumping (jumpers not hunters). He can walk, trot, canter and jump nicely. He knows his leads and can collect and go on the bit nicely as long as his rider knows how to ask. 

   Vegas is good on trails but doesn't like to be the last one in the line. He is not spooky for the most part but I would not put a beginner on him. Vegas is a super friendly, fun guy to have around. It was a heart breaking decision for his current owner to sell him but she has decided they just don't want to do the same things. She has decided that they would both be happier with different partners.  

   I have known Vegas since the day he was born and can give people any additional information they would like.

Health Notes: Vegas is healthy and up to date on cares. 

Dandy's Barbie Girl- SOLD September 2020

Barn Name: Shimmer

Year Foaled/Age: 2016, 4 years old

Color: Palomino

Sex: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse

Registration Association & Number: AQHA 5775849

Height: 15

Rider Level: Confident Intermediate under instruction or above

Discipline: Working cow horse prospect, Trails

Description: Shimmer is a sweet, easy going mare. She is fantastic on trails but has the brain and ability to do more if asked. She has fabulous ground manners and will stand tied all day. She is great for the farrier and vet. Shimmer loads, hauls and unloads well. She is easy to saddle and bridle. 

   Shimmer is well started. She lopes nice circles and has a fairly consistent jog. She has started neck reining and works well off your legs. She has some speed when asked. Shimmer occasionally startles and that is the only reason I have said that she needs a rider with some experience. She comes back easily as long as her rider picks up their reins. She is used to the dogs racing in and out of the grass and timber on the trails. She rides out alone or in a group but lacks a little confidence when alone. Shimmer is happy to lead or follow on the trails. 

   Shimmer is middle of the pecking order in her pen with 2 other mares and 2 geldings. She is easy to catch and wants to be with people. Shimmer first came in for training as a 2 year old and had a month of ground work. She had 3 months under saddle the following summer and spent quite a bit of time on the trails. I liked her so much that I ended up buying her myself. I am not actively trying to sell Shimmer but if the right family came along I would be willing to sell her. 

Health Notes: None. Shimmer is sound and does not have any health issues. She does have a scar on her right hind fetlock that does not effect her in any way.

Rosie- SOLD August 2020

Barn Name: Rosie

Year Foaled/Age: 2013, 7 years old

Color: Red Roan

Sex: Mare

Breed: POA/Quarter Pony

Registration Association & Number: Grade

Height: 13.2 hands 

Rider Level: Advanced Beginner 

Discipline:  Hunters, Jumpers, Cross Country, Eventing, Dressage, Trails

Description: Rosie is an easy going little mare that is a fantastic mix of point and shoot and a challenge. She is well mannered and easy to get along with. She is not marish when in heat but she squeals a little when meeting new horses for the first time. Rosie is easy to catch even when out in our big 30 acre pasture. Rosie stands quietly in the cross ties and will stand tied all day. She is good for the farrier but can be a little tricky for shots. She is easy to load, haul and unload. Rosie stands quietly for grooming, saddling, bridling and mounting. 

   She has an easy walk, trot and canter. She is happy to have a kid that wants to ride hard or a beginner to pack around the arena. Rosie is honest to fences and doesn't duck or run out. She is not a stopper and is a willing jump partner. 

   Rosie is great in the arena and out on the trails. She is a quiet honest trail pony. We have not ridden her out alone but would be happy to if someone wanted us to see how she was solo. 

   Current owners have always ridden with a crupper to keep her saddle from slipping forward. They would be happy to send that with Rosie at no extra charge. They would be willing to sell her blankets and bridle as her owners next mount will be bigger. 

Health Notes: Rosie is healthy and up to date on all cares including current coggins. 

Impulse To Dance- SOLD August 2020

Barn Name: Zoey

Year Foaled/Age: 2017, 3 years old

Color: Bay Leopard

Sex: Mare

Breed: POA

Registration Association & Number: POA

Height: 13.3 hands and still growing

Rider Level: Intermediate 

Discipline:  Trails, Western Pleasure, English Pleasure, driving

Description:  Zoey is a PHENOMENAL pony. She has a great brain and is a super cute mover. The sky is the limit with this little mare. I can not say enough good things about her and if I could afford her I wouldn't even be listing her. She has the potential to go far on the POA show circuit. 

   Zoey has fantastic ground manners. Stands tied and cross ties well. She is good for baths and fly spray. She is easy to load, haul and unload. She is easy to saddle and bridle. Zoey stands quietly for mounting. I have students that do flips off of her, slid off her butt, stand on her and basically just monkey around. She tolerates anything they throw at her. 

   Zoey has a super soft face. She direct reins and neck reins. She is still currently in a french link snaffle. She has a great whoa. Zoey has a 10+ jog and is naturally slow legged. Her lope is soft and slow but needs a little more polish to be finished for the show pen. Once finished she will be extremely hard to beat. Trust me when I say you don't want to be showing against this pony. Zoey has been started in a shank bit and rides well one handed. 

   Zoey is also great on trails. She crosses water, goes through mud, climbs and slides down hills without hesitation. I have ridden Zoey solo on trails quite a bit and she is the same solid pony as when she is with a big group. She is used to the dogs charging in and out of the grass, timber and pond. She will do anything you ask of her. She is extremely willing and loves to please. 

   I have used Zoey in lessons for students as young as 5. She is the same easy, quiet, sweet pony no matter who is on her back. She maintains her show stopping jog even with the most novice rider. I have used her for both english and western lessons and she is happy to do either one. 

   We took Zoey to an IHSA show and she was amazing. Only her second show ever and nothing phased her. Had 3 or 4 different riders each day that had never ridden her and she placed well in every class. Zoey also knows how to ground drive but has never been hooked to a cart. 

Health Notes: Zoey is healthy and up to date on all cares. 

Sierra- SOLD July 2020

Barn Name: Sierra

Year Foaled/Age: 2006, 14 years old

Color: light sorrel

Sex: Mare

Breed: Paint Pony cross

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 13.2 hands

Rider Level: Advanced Beginner or above

Discipline:  Trails, Western Pleasure, English Pleasure, Dressage, Jumping, All-Around

Description:  Sierra is turning into quite a nice little pony. She naturally carries herself well for English but likes to slow down and could easily be a western pony as well. Sierra will stand tied all day. She cross ties, loads, hauls and unloads well. She is great for the vet and farrier. She stands nicely for mounting and will stand quietly until you ask her to walk off. She is very easy to catch and loves to be used. 

   Sierra has a great trot and can cover some ground when asked. She naturally carries her head and neck without being asked. She has been working on her canter transitions. She has gotten quite consistent going from trot to canter and canter back to trot. Canter to walk and canter to halt are coming along well but walk to canter still needs work. She is working on leads and very rarely misses. Once our transitions are fairly consistent we will be starting her over fences. 

   I have started using Sierra in lessons. She has done walk-trot and intermediate lessons as well as pony rides. 

   We have taken Sierra out on the trails and while cautious she is great. She crosses the creek with a little hesitation without jumping. She is happy to be in a big group or with only one other horse but we have never taken her out alone. She prefers to follow but will lead if asked. She will go from a hand gallop back to a walk without a fuss. I think she has potential to be a great lower level cross country pony. She isn't phased by the dogs racing in and out of the grass and timber in the slightest. 

   Price will go up with continued training, price listed may not be current.

Health Notes: Sierra is healthy and up to date on all cares. 

Watch Hotroddin Sue- SOLD July 2020

Barn Name: Suzanne

Year Foaled/Age: 2005, 15 years old

Color: Buckskin

Sex: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse

Registration Association & Number: AQHA 

Height: 15

Rider Level: Confident Advanced Beginner under instruction or above

Discipline: Sorting, team penning, ranch horse, games, Trails

Description: Suzanne is a sweet mare that needs a job. She spent time as a 2 yr old and again as a 3 yr old at Ellsworth in their program. She was mostly used for arena riding in the past. She did do some trail riding and rode around the farm but is more confident in the arena. She has great ground manners. Suzanne is easy to catch and will stand tied quietly all day. She also cross ties well. She stands quietly for grooming, saddling and bridling. She is good for fly spray. She dances around a little for baths but nothing terrible. 

   Suzanne needs little reminders to stand at the mounting block but stays still for the most part. She has a nice neck rein and moves off your legs well but is a little soft sided. She has a nice jog and a good lope but isn't a pleasure horse. She is not for a complete beginner as she has sensitive sides and a kick means GO. 

   Suzanne has had a handful of rides in the past 2 weeks but before that she had been sitting for a few years. Her price will go up with more ride time.

Health Notes: Suzanne is a healthy girl and is up to date on all cares. She does not have a current coggins but we can have one pulled if needed. 

Mary's Hank- SOLD July 2020 

Barn Name: Al

Year Foaled/Age: 2000, 20 years old

Color: Sorrel

Sex: Gelding

Breed: Quarter Horse

Registration Association & Number: AQHA

Height: 15.3 hands

Rider Level: Beginner

Discipline:  Trails, Ranch Horse

Description:  Al is an AMAZING gelding that we absolutely adore. He has fantastic ground manners. He will stand tied all day. Straight ties or cross ties. Loads, hauls and unloads like a gentleman. He loves being groomed and will stand like a statue for even the tiniest person to groom him. Good for baths, the farrier and the vet. Stands like a statue for you to mount. Has a fantastic neck rein but will also direct rein. 

   Al has a super smooth jog and canter. He isn't a plodder and walks out. He is fine in the front or back, in a big group or solo. Al will ride away from any group and is fine for the group to ride away from him. Al is the babysitter for any of the nervous, naughty or young horses out on the trails. I have ponied many horses with Al and he does great. Al doesn't like to be micro managed. Just drop your reins, relax and enjoy the ride. If you hang on his face constantly he starts to get a little fussy. Al will cross anything you point him at. He goes across bridges, creeks, deep water, puddles, a dam, you name it. I have never seen Al spook at anything, even with the dogs diving in the pond or racing around the grass and timber. 

   Al is middle to lower in the pecking order in his herd. During the day he is in a dry lot with 5-6 other horses (both mares and geldings). Al goes out in my 30 acre pasture every night from approximately 8pm to 8am. I can walk up to him in the big pasture toss a halter on and ride bareback to the barn. Even if the rest of the herd takes off and gallops ahead Al goes my speed and will walk calmly home. 

   I am sure after reading this you are wondering why in the world I am even willing to sell this wonderful gelding. As much as we love Al he LOVES attention and would absolutely thrive with his own person. Lesson life is hard on a horse both physically and mentally. I have no problem keeping Al and using him for lessons and trails for as long as he is with me. If the perfect home comes along then I would be sad but willing to part with him.

Health Notes: Al is blind in his left eye. It does not effect him in the slightest. He may occasionally bump you with his nose when you are leading him just to check in. The blindness was caused by trauma before I got him and he has no issues with his other eye. Al is a healthy boy who is up to date on all cares but does not have a current coggins. I would be happy to pull a coggins at my expense if you would need one. Any prepurchase exam will be at the expense of the buyer. 

Belles Last Jet- June 2020

Barn Name: Eddie

Year Foaled/Age: 2015, 5 years old

Color: Bay

Sex: Gelding

Breed: Quarter Horse

Registration Association & Number: AQHA

Height: 16 hands

Rider Level: Intermediate or above

Discipline:  Trails

Description:  Eddie is a fabulous gelding with great ground manners. He will stand tied all day. He cross ties well. He is super easy to catch even out in our 30 acre pasture. He loads and unloads well. He stands well to be groomed and saddled as well as for the farrier and vet. He stands quietly for you to mount and doesn't walk off. He has a great jog but it is not show ready. His lope would need work to finish for shows. Eddie has the quality of movement, temperament and build to be a solid show horse. However he doesn't seem to enjoy the arena nearly as much as the trails. 

   Eddie is fantastic on trails. He is quiet and not spooky. He is used to the dogs racing in and out of the grass and timber. He has had deer run out and it didn't phase him. He is happy to lead or follow. We are working on riding out alone and he isn't quite comfortable with being solo yet. He crosses streams and will go through deeper water. Eddie will go up and down steep hills.   

Health Notes: Eddie cut his pastern on the outside of his left front in March 2020. It is completely healed but he will probably have a scar. Other than the scar Eddie has no health issues and is up to date on all cares.  

Jackie Blu- SOLD June 2020

Color: Bay

Sex: Gelding

Breed: Thoroughbred 

Registration Association & Number: Jockey Club

Height: 16.3 hands

Rider Level: Confident Intermediate under instruction or above

Discipline: Hunter, Dressage

Description: Finn last raced in September and one way or another he wound up at the Kalona auction in the loose pen in February. A client purchased him at that auction and has been working to get him back into top form. She loves having Finn around but unfortunately our boarding situation isn’t the best for him.  We believe that it would be in his best interest to be in a different living arrangement. He needs somewhere he can be either by himself or with one or two other horses. He has herd anxiety and unfortunately large herds are the only long term option where here.  

   Finn has had approximately 10 rides since she got him up to a healthy weight. He loves to work, is very smart and is very trainable. He would make a great dressage prospect and possibly low jumpers. May require minimum maintenance if you wanted to do any upper level work with him, simply based on the fact that he was raced quite a bit. He is not on any maintenance right now and he is doing fine. He picks up on things quickly. He wants to please and is coming along very well. He has good ground manners. He is a typical OTTB and can get a bit ahead of you when walking but never anything rude. He straight ties and cross ties. He does weave when anxious but has no other vices. He loads and unloads well. 

NOTE: Price reduced through no fault of Finn's. Owner is headed to med school in August and needs to find him a new home before then!

Health Notes: Finn is up to date on all cares. Recently had an abscess but is doing well. 

Addie- SOLD June 2020

Barn Name: Addie

Year Foaled/Age: 2002, 18 years old

Color: Black

Sex: Mare

Breed: TB Cross?

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 16 hands

Rider Level: Intermediate or above

Discipline:  Dressage, English, Jumping

Description:  I purchased Addie with the hopes of using her for my lesson program but she is too forward for the job I need filled. I am not in a rush to sell her and will continue to use and trail ride her until we find her the right home. She has phenomenal ground manners. She will stand tied all day and cross ties well. She is easy to saddle and bridle. She loads and unloads well. She is super easy to catch and will nicker to remind you when its breakfast or dinner time.  

   Addie has been ridden by my students ages 12-18. She is definitely not for a beginner as she has a motor. We have taken her on the trails and she did well. She was not spooky in the slightest. She is starting to relax in the arena and has learned that walking isn't so bad. She will happily walk as long as you want and will come back to a walk easily from both a trot and canter. Addie has a nice driven trot and easily covers ground. She has a great forward canter. She does seem a little weaker in her right lead than in her left and occasionally falls out of it or cross fires. She is quick to fix it but does need some conditioning. Addie is currently learning about self carriage and giving to the bridle. 

   We suspect that Addie may have been a chuck wagon horse at some point. She is very lopsided in her muscle and her left side is definitely stronger. She had a hard time in the beginning with her right lead. She would immediately try to take off the second you mounted. We are currently working on all of these issues. She stands nice and quiet now to be mounted. She will take her right lead but occasionally falls out of it or cross fires. She will walk nicely and seems to have figured out that the goal isn't always forward.  

   We have been riding her English and she seems to enjoy that. We will possibly start her over some low fences and see how she takes to jumping. She has improved every time we have taken her out on the trails. She now walks quietly with the occasional few trot steps. Addie likes to be in the lead but doesn't fight for it. 

Health Notes: I have not had Addie long but as far as I know she is a healthy girl. She is up to date on all shots and has a current coggins. She was dewormed when she came and has been seen by my farrier. 

Memphis- SOLD JUNE 2020

Barn Name: Memphis

Year Foaled/Age: 2011, 9 years old

Color: Grulla

Sex: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse & Arabian Cross

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 14.3

Rider Level: Advanced Beginner or above

Discipline: Trails

Description: Memphis is a sweet mare with good ground manners. She stands quietly to be groomed and saddled. She is easy to bridle and lunges well.  Memphis will stand tied all day and cross ties well. She load, hauls and unloads well. She is easy to catch and gets along well with both mares and geldings. 

   Memphis is very quiet under saddle and has a great jog. Memphis would prefer not to work in the arena and does test her rider. Nothing super naughty, just tries to turn back towards the gate. She is happy to canter on the trails but would prefer not to canter in the arena. She will canter in the arena with a few crow hop protests. 

   Memphis is FABULOUS on the trails. She is happy to walk, trot or canter on the trails. She will go up and down steep hills. She will happily go through water or over the creek without trying to jump. She is used to riding with the dogs charging in and out of the grass and timber. She is not spooky in the slightest. She will ride away from the group and is fine for them to ride away from her but gets a little antsy if they go out of sight. Memphis is completely fine with other horses riding up her rear end, I had an anxious mare that I stuck behind her and even with the dancing and prancing Memphis ignored us. She is happy to lead or follow and will keep up with those that walk out pretty easily. 

Health Notes: Memphis is a healthy girl that is up to date on all cares but does not have a current coggins. 

Holly- SOLD June 2020

Barn Name: Holly

Year Foaled/Age: 1995, 25 years old

Color: Sorrel/White

Sex: Mare

Breed: Paint

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 15 hands

Rider Level: Beginner

Discipline:  Trails

Description: Holly has not been with me long. I got her to get her healthy and find her a good home. She is very sweet but can be a little pushy on the ground. She will stand tied and cross ties well. She loaded and unloaded well. She was a little tricky to catch when I first got her but has gotten much better and usually walks up to my students and me. She is still working on gaining weight so we haven't ridden her yet but I was told that she is very broke. Her price will change as we put some ride time on her.  

Health Notes: Holly is now up to date on all shots, deworming and will be seeing the farrier on 6/9. She is still working on gaining weight. 

Mercy-SOLD June 2020

Barn Name: Mercy

Year Foaled/Age: 2003, 17 years old

Color: Chestnut

Sex: Mare

Breed: Saddlebred

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 15.2

Rider Level: Intermediate or above

Discipline: Driving, Trails, Endurance

Description: Mercy is a sweet mare that I pulled from the Kalona loose pen in February 2020. She was underweight and had a swollen knee. After getting her home and getting her weight up, Mercy had her teeth floated and got all vaccinations up to date. I started trail riding her and she has been fabulous. She startled a couple times when we first went out because of the dogs running up behind her but came back to me very easily. Once she got used to them nothing has phased her. She rides out alone or in a group. She walks out so most often ends up in the lead. She wasn't sure about the stream but after I let her think about it she did cross. Deer, turkey and pheasant did not bother her. I did take her out on our gravel road when ground driving her (I don't have a cart that fits her) and she wasn't bothered by a semi that passed us. 

   I believe Mercy was an Amish driving horse. She has absolutely zero understanding about leg pressure. You could kick her all day and she will not move. The second you cluck she walks right off. She has a great trot but struggles to canter, I can get her into it but she can't figure out how to balance me on her back while going. If she doesn't understand something she stops. 

Health Notes: Mercy has thickened tendons on both front legs. She has scars on both knees, we assume she went down on the road at some point. I think she needs a life of leisure. She is currently sound but I think that could change if she gets pushed too hard. To be someone's occasional trail horse or pleasure driving horse would be best.

Denver- SOLD May 2020

Barn Name: Denver

Year Foaled/Age: 2008, 12 years old

Color: Black Bay

Sex: Gelding

Breed: Quarter Horse

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 15

Rider Level: Advanced 

Discipline: Trails, Ranch

Description: Denver is a super sweet gelding that I pulled form the loose pen at the Kalona sale in February 2020. I was able to speak to his previous owner while at the auction. Denver is out of registered stock and I have a copy of their information, however papers were never sent in for him. He was started under saddle and owner believed he had a few months of riding experience. Owner had quite a few horses that he bred. He had a young guy working for him that started his horses for him. At some point they had a falling out and the horses have been sitting for several years. Owner was 83 and didn't feel he had any other options, he believed that at some point during the falling out the guy working with the horses was a little overly harsh and thinks that is where some of Denver's cautiousness comes from. 

   I brought Denver home and have spent quite a bit of time gaining his trust. He is a super sweet, friendly guy once he gets to know you but is still a little timid with new people or new situations. He is doing very well under saddle walk, trot and canter. He is getting better about standing still but needs reminders. He has been fantastic out on the trails. We have worked on crossing the creek and the other day we took him through some water that is about 18" deep. He really wants to please and tries hard to make you happy. He is a cute mover and has a great natural jog. He would make a super cute ranch gelding and has a jog that you could ride all day!

   Denver will stand tied all day. He loads well but gets a little nervous if alone in the trailer. We have never ridden him out on the trails alone. He stood pretty well for the farrier. I explained his history and my farrier is great about going slow.

   Denver is up to date on all cares. Vaccinations were updated in March. He also had his teeth floated at that time. Denver will stand tied, may paw/dance a little but does not pull back at all. He loaded and hauled well. He was a little anxious after loading and pawed a bit but settled down once we started driving. Denver is in a turnout with 2 mares and 1 other gelding, one of the mares is a mini and he is good buddies with her. He is middle of the pecking order. 

Health Notes: None. Denver is sound and does not have any health issues as far as I know. 

Maisel- SOLD May 2020

Barn Name: Maisel/May

Year Foaled/Age: 2005, 15 years old

Color: Bay

Sex: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse

Registration Association & Number: None

Height: 14.3

Rider Level: Confident Beginner or Above

Discipline:  Trails

Description: Maisel was a boy scout camp horse that I helped sell approximately 18 months ago. Her family adored her but after their other mare passed away they decided to get out of horses for the time being. When I heard she was for sale I jumped on the chance to get her and put some ride time on her. Maisel (also known as M or Marshmallow when the camp owned her) is a super sweet mare who is very easy to get along with. She loves to trail ride and will go through, under or over anything. 

    Maisel hadn't been ridden consistently in a while and the first trail I took her out on she was fantastic. She has not spooked once even with the dogs racing in and out of the grass and timber. She is good in the lead or beinging up the rear. She doesn't mind riding off alone. She has a great smooth jog. It takes a bit of encouragement to get her to canter but seems to know her leads once she gets into it. 

   Maisel is a typical mare and likes to be asked to do something. Ask her and she will do anything you want her to. If you try to make her do something she gets a little nervous and shuts down. When I have asked Maisel to do anything new, as long as I gave her a little time to think about it, she hasn't told me no yet. She even went through hock deep marsh without less than a few seconds hesitation. 

   Maisel has a great neck rein and great brakes. She is very rusty on leg pressure. She loads, hauls and unloads well. Maisel will stand tied all day. She is middle to lower end of the pecking order in the group of 5 that she lives with (2 other mares and 2 geldings). 

Health Notes: None. Maisel is sound and does not have any health concerns.
