I have an 8 year old grade paint mare. She is just a smidge shy of 14.2 barefoot. My 8 year old daughter rides her, and she's very much a beginner. I can't vouch for your kids, that's something you need to feel comfortable with. She rides English or western. She would make a stunning HUS pony. She's dabbled in poles (even had flying changes), and certainly has the get up and go to do some contesting. She loves to chase cows. She's quiet and willing on trail. She would be a 4H dream and great all arounder. She's been shown and wins ribbons! We currently ride her in a bitless bridle. She has great feet and has stayed barefoot with us. She's the alpha mare in the herd. The sounds of the trains at sunbeau farms didn't bother her, she is also accustomed to 4 wheelers and lots of loud noises and activities. Nothing really bothers this mare. She loads and hauls quiet, bathes, ties, vets, and does well with the farrier. She's not marish, but she's not really in your pocket either. She is the same when she cycles. She has a tendency to cycle whenever there's a change, new horse coming in, etc. She neck reins, is responsive to leg aids, and is easy to ride.
Asking $2500 or possible trade.
What we are looking for:
We really need a bigger horse. We are looking for a horse who is 15.2 or so, taller ok. Stocky is preferred. We want the same qualities, the quiet type with flexibility to do more. My daughter is in 4H, so we would be using the new horse for that and trail rides. Ideally, we would love to find an even trade. Someone who has something a little big and would like something a little smaller. Would prefer geldings but if you have a quiet, consistent mare that's ok too.
We have videos upon request and lots more pictures. Please only request videos and pictures if you are serious and have a trade available. No tire kickers please. We have several references to give, and would like the same in return.
