Oh, he is gorgeous! Those pics do not do him justice. He is a big, big boy! Very sweet, friendly, calm. Her mom rode him, she hasn't ridden in a while but he was really good for her. Nice rhythm, good transitions, bends nicely... The only thing I didn't like is that he carries his head really high. Super nice boy. Definitely going back for a second look!

:O No way! I noticed that he's being boarded about 20 minutes from where I live! I used to ride there while it was still Our Farm. Broke my arm there actually. Haha. But he's a beautiful boy. I hope it works out.

Sometimes I see some nice horses in the philly craigslist section of farm and garder.

If your want to travel a little further, you should check out Zeus. I used to board there, probably 3-4 years in total (I used bring my mare closer in the winters.) I was contemplating buying him, but I ended up getting a weanling instead, since I don't have as much time as Id like to train a riding horse, and I don't have a budget to board two horses at a nicer stable with a good ring and still afford all the extra care my mare needs. I havent ridden him, he hasnt been ridden in lessons so I havent watched him being ridden either. He's been at the farm for a while, so they arent in a big hurry to sell, but they don't use him for anything so he's kind of a money pit to them. You could probably strike a deal. He's been there for since atleast early 2008. His trainer, Virginia is really honest, and I love the assistant BM Jon.

The other horse, Odin is VERY overpriced for his age, his training and the market. I know for a fact he's not ridden regularly, because his trainer, the B.M. Never seems to be around.

LOL! Rainbow Ridge is very close to where I grew up!! Where did/do you guys ride? I started at Natalie Johnson's in Doylestown, then rode at Random Acres (now Patty Miller Stables) in Pipersville for a while. Just a little north of you guys. Yes, Poppy is at Our Farm. I can't believe how big that place is!!

Yeah, Our Farm is huge. I always used to be in awe when I went there when I was little. ATM I ride at Saddlebrook in Schwenksville.

My first horse was one of natalies babies, she died and he was sold to a trainer I think his name is jr or jc or something. Well he wrecked this horse, bad. Not sure what she called him, but he came with the name scout. I think he was worm in '95.

I keep my horses near 413 and creamery rd. I've been at stepping stone, a bunch of private places, rainbow ridge, heavens gate farm.
