16.2hh TB Gelding

I have found another horse!
Tell me what you think :)

Ad: Thoroughbred Horse For Sale, British Columbia (Canada), Pritchard

More Info:
Kyle is very good with novice riders. He is good on trails and bareback. I have done almost everything bareback with him and he couldn't care less. I have thrown a western saddle on him a few times just for fun and he is also really good about that. He would make a great pleasure horse since he is very relaxed all the time and he reaches into the contact without the rider even doing anything
I have to sell him because I am moving and I can't afford to board 2 horses. He has never foundered or had any health issues. Very easy to catch! He is out on a 5 acre field right now and he will walk straight up to you even if he sees a haulter in your hand. Great with the farrier as well. He will basically sleep through the whole thing and I have even just hung the rope over his neck sometimes while he gets his feet done. So over all he's a pretty easy horse to handle. :)
He has fine bones like a thoroughbred but he definitely looks like an appendix so he does have a bit bigger build then a normal TB.
Has a bit of high withers.


I will post the pictures here as well :)

Also, they are sending me some more pictures later today.. and hopefully some tackless photos for confo. :)

Hes a beautiful boy. I was sold at him riding bareback! I would see if you couldn't get the price down some. Good luck!

Thanks :) yes he is gorgeous!
Also, his price is negotiable, so we could probably get it down to around $3500.

I would take a look at him! Maybe email the seller and ask for a conformation photo. It bugs me that there isn't one there lol. If you got him, would you be jumping with him? He looks like a nice jumper! Just make sure that if you go to look at him, make the owner do everything FIRST to see how he is.

Yeah, as I posted, the seller is emailing me more pictures tonight :) She said she will send me a confo. One if she has one, if not she will go take one of him.
I would do some jumping yes :) I havent done much jumping, as our stables never let us much..
But, I really want to try it! It looks like a ton of fun! I will ride western, english, bareback and trails :) Pretty much a bit of everything!
Yes of course, I don't normally try horses out without the owner riding first. :)

So do I! haha. I never was really interested in tbs, since I heard they were highstrung, and small built. But this guy sounds nice :)
Even though I do prefer my big big bodied horses ;]

Hes got a great knee tuck in the x/c photo. I think I would buy him if I was looking for a third horse. Also don't forget to get a prepurchase.

He seems pretty nice. Worth a look but while I like him I personally would not pay nearly that much for him - it doesn't sound like he has really proven himself in any form of competition.

Even if you don't want to compete, I don't think a non competition TB should be priced that high at that age. Still, if you could get the price below three I think it might be okay. Obviously though, I don't know what market is like where you live, but it seems like you can pick up some decent horses pretty cheap everywhere these days.

Horse wise though he sounds nice - but remember adds can say anything.

I would definitely take a look at him and try him out; he's a lovely looking horse
