Ok so I am just going to post the info I have about the horses I am looking at for a possible lease/purchase here.
1. Frontier (Della) 16.2hh Dapple Grey Hanoverian/Percheron Mare 8 yrs old DreamHorse.com Horse ID: 1432999 - Frontier Picasa Web Albums - Sherry - Hanoverian/Pe...
From Owner's Email: She is a 16.1h 8 year old Hanoverian/Perch Cross dapple grey mare. She does jump up to 3' 6" and has fox-hunted previously. She is solid training level dressage and is schooling first level. She easily leg yields, does turn-on-the forehand and comes 'on-the-bit'. She has impeccable ground manners, ties, clips, loads, etc. Our neighbour's kids come over and groom her, pick out her feet and will ride her in a halter and lead rope. I My parents (non-rider's) were easily able to trail ride her around the property. She is a very sweet and willing a horse and has never offered to kick/bite/buck/bolt/etc. We bought her as a trail horse for my husband and she is great riding around the property, but she does become anxious (whinnies, occasionally trots/jigs) when trailered out for camping, etc. She continues to listen when anxious but is not enjoyable for my husband to trail ride on a loose rein. She is sound barefoot and is up to date on all shots and preventative care and has not had any medical problems. She would be a very fun cross-country, dressage, overall sporthorse as she is very athletic, has the training, and is fun to ride.
Pros: Wears no shoes!
2. Brilliant Jewel 16.2 Dapple Grey TB Mare 10 yrs old DreamHorse.com Horse ID: 1426949 - Brilliant Jewel
From Owner's Email: I have owned her about 3 years. She has been showing on the VHSA associate local circuit in the 2’6” division. She went to Ocala for 3 “A” shows last winter with my trainer and did well at 3’. She is a forward ride like most TB’s. She is well broke on the flat with lots of lateral and transition work. She does flying lead changes as well. I think she could continue as a hunter or would make a great jumper or eventing horse. She is 100% sound and healthy. I have never had any problems with her. I am selling her because I recently purchased an Arabian sport horse and I can’t keep both of them. I just don’t have enough time and money to have both of them.
Okiedoke. So lemme know what you think of these lovely ladies. :)
