Dazzle was born on our farm and has been a pleasure to own. Trained and quiet, she would be a wonderful horse for a beginner, or youth. She clips, loads, stands quiet, and is an easy keeper overall. Stays in a hotwire fence; you can stall her or pasture her. We have taken her on 8+ hour trail rides at Governor Dodge, Wildcat Mountain, etc. Husband wants to show an Arabian reining horse.

I am looking for a trail partner. I am an experienced, not timid rider, but - at 63 - I need a horse that seldom spooks and has trail experience. Also, I usually ride off alone. Would Dazzle be a possible fit?
Yes, she would be a good fit. She would be good on the trails and it is not unusual for her to be ridden when she is by herself. I am really hoping to sell her to someone who wants to trail ride.
Is this mare still available?
Yes she is available. She deserves to go somewhere where the owner has more time to spend with her. She is an easy horse to own, keep, feed, and ride. Hoping she ends up with someone who trail rides. We used to have all kinds of beginners to expert riders ride her but my kids are getting older and they don't ride as much as they used to. They like trucks now.
Do you still have Dazzle?
When is the last time she was rode?
Do you have a video of her riding?
My sister Nicki is looking for a mare for her daughter Tara. Tara is 6 years old and has been riding since the age of 2. We are now looking for a mare to grow and learn with.. We would like to find a mare to grow old on the farm with us... Showing and being loved... Do you feel this is a good fit for her?
I still have her and have been too busy to reply to anyone interested in her. I will try to send a short video to your email. thanks! She is good with kids.

Dear Dazzle's owner,
I just saw your ad for Dazzle and would like to know more about her! Your description was great, would she be OK with a "rusty" rider or a beginner (with lessons)? My youngest son went off to college last Fall and although I've had horses all my life, I haven't ridden much in years (I am an outstanding stable cleaner and groom!) and need a gentle Arabian to help me gain my confidence back with. I'm looking for a "forever" horse who enjoys being groomed and just being part of the family, a little fun trail riding, some lessons ( at my age the ground seems harder and being unseated doesn't seem enjoyable!), someone to have fun with. Would Dazzle and I be a good fit? I'll look forward to your reply! Thank you, Patty DeNuzzo
She is still for sale I have been busy at work so have not kept up with the horseclicks ads. She is gentle and prefers trail riding and grooming over showing. Let me know if you are still looking and I will try to send a short video to your gmail account.
Hi, I’m interested in Dazzle-- would you be able to answer a few questions and send more pictures and/or video?
I’m basically looking for a calm, relaxed horse that I’d be able to do some trail riding and maybe light arena work (but I’m not into showing anymore!). Is she one that you could put kids and beginners on her (I have a lot of non-horsey friends and small cousins that like to ride with us)? Has she ever kicked, bucked, reared? Is she good about leaving the other horses and the barn? Good about being tied, standing for vet and farrier? Has she been kept outdoors (our horses are outside all the time with open access to shelter)? Does she respect fences (we have 2 horses in a 40 acre pasture that’s mostly electric but it does have some barbed wire unfortunately)?
Sounds like she would be a good fit if you are still looking. We have basically a similar situation here except hardly anyone comes over to ride with us anymore. Probably because we are too darn busy baling hay after our day jobs! Let me know if you are still looking and I will try to send you at least a short video to your email.

I am an older retired lady who has had Arabians for many years and currently find myself without one. I do a little trail riding and some basic dressage. Do you have any more photos? Will she pass a vet check? Where is she in your herd's pecking order?
She will definitely pass a vet check. She has never had a injury other than normal surface scratches/cuts. Dazzle is in the middle of the pecking order, doesn't seem to get too invloved in pecking order 'events' but isn't a chicken and does not get chased away from a hay pile. I will take more photos tomorrow and get them to you.
