    chance is up for sale.

    Well i've had it with chance. I was riding her today in the ring and she bolted I thnk she was trying to race the hay truck cause it was beside her as she was running. She bucked and twisted and I flew over her head AGAIN and landed on my neck and face and slid my nose was bleeding soo bad. My whole right side is torn up. So I need a horse around 7 or 8 that I can trust I have a lesson on her tuesday and im afraid to ride her now. She doesnt like to jump very much even though she's amazing at it so it doesnt work out any way I look at it. I gave her 7 months to work things out and she's back fireing more and more. I checked her over for pain and theres nothing that me or anyone can find. If you guys can help me find a nice horse around 7 that jumps I will be so happy I was hoping for a black horse or a bay anything but a paint lol. Around 15.2 thanks guys! Zip code is 04038 or you can look in the buxton area heres chances add. Im going to try not to think twice about this.

    I am sorry that she isn't working out for you the way you wanted her too.

    I will definitely try to help you find a good horse!

    You didn't mention how far away you'd travel, or how much you'd be willing to spend...but below is some horses within a 50 mile radius of the zip code that I think sounds good....and ones that aren't extremely pricey
    Just curious....why not Paints? Do you just not like their markings? Paints are known for their calmness...and I've ridden soo many and love them. Sonny is a Paint. Is it just the colors that you don't like?

    I was mainly looking for something that sounded level headed and a pleasure to ride....I was not paying attention to height or color, sorry about that. I did try to make sure no Paints were added though, as requested

    I will try to find more later

    Hey there just took a look at the ad, a word of advice, can you find a pic where she is standing square?, I woulds change the pic that you have in that ad, it's kind of blurie and doesn't give her justice!!...


    As for buying a new horse I would go with some thing with a little more miles on it, trust I wish I had it right now on my guys!!!............


    As for find finding a new horse I would suguest looking in york county area, it's about 25 min drive down the I 95 .

    here is a few to help you out

    http://www.dreamacresec.com/sales.htm cut through biddefird by walmart grab rt 1 south (in between biddeford and kennebunk.

    Rocking horse stable ( doesn't have a web site) same way to rt 1 stay on that (past the antique mall) till you hit the vet clinic on left and head down that road, will be on your left before the rail road tracks.
    Just down the road from the historic landing boat school

    Lank farm http://www.lankfarmkennebunk.com/ which I know nothing of......

    River hurst farm (parsons beach) in kennebunk beach, (stop by my beach house and bug my dad!!!) kennebunk exit in to town take left at light stay right and take right heading in to kennebunkport,,,at next light (about a mile) take right and follow road to next set of lights (bennets sub store is on left say hi to paul !!) take a right at those lights and follow 9 west over small bridge and the farm is to your left (head down like going to the beach and first left.......


    The only other place I can think of is bushbrooke farm run by mona she's off of one of the 5 point's in biddeford, closer to goose rocks area

    Tat's are they only one's I can think of!!!...good luck

    I really like this one but I'm not sure because it says patience.... This one has SOME arthritis but if it's not that bad, I think he's worth looking at... My walker had arthritis for years before we stopped riding him, in fact, riding a horse with arthritis is a good thing... although I would check on the degree of it

    I'm sorry it's not working out as well. I might get slammed for this, but your add doesn't give any idea that Chance may be a bit dangerous...I mean you're selling her because you can't handle her. And that's not bad, but I think it's only honest to let people know the reason why. I'm always suspicious of ads that say "Must Sell", and then go on about how great the horse is. I could never sell a horse with a good conscience without being completely honest about what the problems are.

    Everything in that ad is 100% true and I said that she needs an advanced rider which is true. And she does need one on one. It gives people the main idea if I get responses ill mention she does bolt if she gets nervous or over whelmed.

    She is a great horse though. And Im also selling her because she doesnt enjoy jumping to much and that is what I want to do with her. So we don't mix.

    This is my opinion if chance was giving you so much trouble I think you have kept her 7 months to long. You need a horse that is about 15 plus years old if you want a good horse. A few years in age isnt going to make a big differece in a horse might a little but not an excessive about. I think you need to give chance another Chance cause I have been thrown mupilte time and I work through it I don't give up on something I have started...why would you want to throw away 7 months of what you have worked on? It takes alot of patience to work with a green broke horse and I don't think you need to give up even though she has thrown you...
