Hey guys! I've looked at horse after horse....a Shire, two Quarter Horses, etc etc etc, and I found an amazing horse on Craigslist. Here's the blurb they wrote:
Hi there! Are you looking for a well trained Dressage, Hunter-Jumper horse? Then, I have the perfect horse for you. Her name is Molly. She is 6yrs old, 16hh, beautiful bay with a stripe. She is a performer and looker for sure. She is athletic and truly enjoys jumping (2ft). She loves to work hard for you. She has recently started western riding. She trailers, cross-ties, stands for farrier, grooming, tacking and shots. She is registered, utd on shots and has a current negative coggins. She appraised for $7500 but I am selling her for $850 obo because of the economy. Her father is Storm Cat, a champion racetrack horse. Come on out and take a look at this beauty! Call or text & I can send more pictures. Lindsay
They showed some pics and then texted me some more.
Iride Western but have been exercising my mom's boyfriend's polo Thoroughbreds (who ride English) and loved it, causing me to tack up my gelding English with my mom's old Pandur saddle and teach him. I've started him over some 12inch jumps, but he just isn't cut out for it, ya know? He's my baby I've been with him my whole life....he's 21 and I'm looking for a new challenge.
I called the lady with my mom, and she seemed verrrry honest. She said she was selling her because she needs to downsize for financial reasons from 4 horses to 1. Has extencive dressage training and some jumping, LOVES to jump. They're training her Western, too. Doesn't quite understand neck reining. Appraised at $7,500 but she is selling for $850 OBO (financial reasons). She just wants to find a good home for her.
I'm really excited. With the other horses I've looked at, I've wanted to believe it would work out but I knew it never would....with this one, I think it's really a possibility. My younger sister might be ready for my Paso Fino gelding soon....if he gets over his separation anxiety, which he will if I have another riding horse on the trails with him.
Anyway....any critique from the pics they sent me? I'm going to see her tomorrow around 7 pm. Thanks guys! Oh--and she's registered
