I have a TB and a smaller buckskin grade mare. I got married on June 1st 2012 and my hubby wants to ride with me on trails and organized rides. My TB is too "Hot" for his level of riding and the Buckskin mare in about 14.2 hands. Hubby is 6 foot 260lbs and just doesn't want to ride the mare. So I have been in search of a husband safe horse. I refused to jump on the first horse to come around...had to be a safe, sane, experienced horse for a beginner. I have finally found a QH gelding that is a bit over 15 hands, bay, very safe and in good health. After a visit with him and riding and watching him be ridden, I decided to buy him. I pick him up this weekend.
The couple I'm buying him from are getting a divorce and the husband is selling his horses off the farm. They have had the horse for about 3 years and bought him from friends that had him for many years before that. The horse is 19 years old (supposedly). He is a bay and has a freeze brand on his left hide quarter. They said he is reg. With AQHA but that they don't have his papers. They gave me a print out from All Breed Database with his info (or what they say they were told was his info.) The people seem honest enough but they were just unable to answer any question about the horse's past. However, I am please with being able to own the horse regardless of his breeding. He is an awesome big guy and is exactly what I have been looking for.
I tried to look up info on him (mainly interested in past owners info) but I'm not a member of AQHA. I'd love to know who he is reg. To and find a way to reg. Him in my name.
Are any members here a member of AQHA? If so would you be willing to find out the info on this boy for me??
His name is Skip Hip Hooray "1993"
