I have a seven year old Appaloosa pony (14 hands).
With more work she would be a great kids show pony or just fun pony but she is not there yet. I have had kids on her while leading them in the round pen but that is it. This horse is for an Advanced rider as of now.
Cars, guns, fireworks, ATV's, barking dogs do not scare this horse. She is scared of water though so that would have to be worked on.
Missing her right eye but has full vision in her left eye during the day, at night she has a hard time seeing so it would be best if she could be stalled at night though not necessary (she's not stalled at night at my house, but she does have a stall)
Beautiful, flashy, and wide. She is very in your pocket and friendly. Loves to be loved on and groomed. My two year old daughter gives her kisses and hugs her and sits on her back and she loves the attention.
Why I'm looking to trade/sell:
Katie is a VERY lazy riding horse. She likes to walk, walk, walk and occasionally trot. I got her when I was 9 months pregnant and she was 4 years old and she had never been ridden. Got up on her and rode her for the next three weeks but had to stop due to having the baby. She is the same horse every time you get on her, but I am really wanting a horse I can get on and w,t,c, swim with, and enjoy a safe ride in which I'm not having to school the horse each riding session. At this time I've only gotten her to canter twice but was told when she was being leased out she cantered for a beginner. I do not use a bit on this horse at this time, she is ridden in a hack. I've ridden her English and Western. Her trot is very smooth. I'm 5'6 and 150 pounds and ride her comfortably. Looking for her to only go to a forever home and I would have a first right of refusal contract signed.
What I'm looking for:
A gelding preferred, already broke w/t/c and pretty dead broke. Looking for a trail horse I can sometimes do fun shows on. Swimming, maybe hunter pace, maybe pole bending. I'm willing to work with a horse a little bit but I'm not looking for something I have to train. Must be gentle and calm and must be non aggressive with other horses as I have a 9 month old filly and a 17 year old mini.
Will pay a little cash extra on top of trade if horse is of more value than my mare ($800)
I will consider a VERY nice mare, but she must not be marish at all. And not aggressive to other horses. If I were to consider a mare I would prefer her to be registered or have the option to register.
I would love another appaloosa as they are my heart horse, but quarter horses and paints are also welcome. Not looking for anything high strung or hot like Arabian or Thoroughbred.
Let me know what you have :) If you want to buy outright I will consider that as well.
