    About

    We purchased Zip a couple months ago with the intention of making him a therapy horse. He passed all of the pre-screening tests with flying colors. Rides soundly at the walk, trot, and canter. Not easily spooked by loud noises, sudden motions, or the introduction of toys. He actually belonged to an 8-year-old in 4-H before he came to us. They sold him because the little girl had an inner ear issue that compromised her balance, and could no longer ride.


    Zip's only downside is that he was very much a pet before he came to us, so he needs somebody that can remind him how to be a horse. He is very gentle around people - doesn't bump into or step on you, but he will get right up in your personal space to ask for attention, so he needs somebody willing to work with him on boundaries. He walks nice on a lead rope, is easy to catch in the pasture, and loves to be with other horses.

    We are selling him because our therapy sessions are conducted in English tack, and Zip was just not meant to ride English. He was so well bred for Western Pleasure that the posture comes naturally to him. Trying to teach him to direct reign and collect like an English horse only confuses and frustrates him. He worked with our Equine Manager and a professional English trainer for 2 weeks before both decided it is in Zip's best interest to return to Western riding where he will be happy. With the right training, he would make an excellent show horse. He is a very nice horse now, but he needs somebody willing to put the time into making him the amazing horse he could be.
