I have a 13 year old, 16.3hh OTTB mare named Elise for sale in Honesdale, PA. She is registered with the Jockey Club, but I don't have her papers. Her tattoo is hard to read, but I believe she ran under the name of Silent Fan, daughter of Real Quiet who won both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, back in 1998, just barely missing the winning the Triple Crown at the Belmont. Elise is an absolute sweetheart on the ground, but needs work under saddle. With consistent work she will do anything you ask of her. She'll go out on trails either alone or in a group and has the potential to be an amazing jumper. Her previous owner has had her in parades and competed in judged trail rides with her and I've had her over small fences and she seemed to really enjoy it. However, she does need a very experienced rider who will work her consistently. With consistent work she has absolutely no vices and will stand calmly for the vet, farrier, to be saddled, or anything else you want to do with her. However, without consistent work she becomes very stubborn and will buck/rear/bolt. Unfortunately I am simply not experienced enough to bring out her true potential. She really is an amazing horse and a great babysitter for my blind gelding, but she has so much potential and I just can't stand to see it wasted. A good home is an absolute must for her. I'm asking $800, but am very open to negotiation to the perfect home. I would also be willing to trade her for a horse of any type over 14.3hh with jumping potential (doesn't need to be started over fences, just have the potential and willingness to jump) as long as the horse requires an advanced intermediate rider or lower. I'm flexible on the trade suggestions too, so if you'd prefer a trade, let me know what you have. Thank you and please feel free to contact me with any questions on this beautiful girl!
