Smile 2 beautiful Thoroughbreds for sale! (Southern California)

I have two beautiful Thoroughbreds for sale (Located in Big Bear City, CA). Trailering is available if you also live in Southern CA for the price of the gas. I do have a rider weight limit of no more than 195 pounds on these guys. Below are the links to their ads. They are both 100% sound. Thanks for looking and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to come try them out .

Maestro in the round pen is the only video I currently have of him, so I don't yet have any videos of him under saddle, but will be trying to get a video taken this week or next when the snow up here melts.

I have a short video of me cantering Sebastian not long after I got him a while ago, he wasn't very collected in it (he's better now) but you can at least kind of see how he moves:

These guys are just out of shape from the winter and with my year and a half year old baby to take care of, as well as my job, I just don't have the time to spend with these guys that they deserve.

I got an off the track thoroughbred (Sebastian) about a year ago, and when I took him for a test ride he was breathing hard from me just trotting him, and I thought it was just from him being out of shape, but after I worked with him and got him to the point in training where any other horse would be in shape, Sebastian was breathing hard and took a while of walking for it to return to normal. I can't do strenuous work like jumping because he will start breathing shallow with a hollow sound, and puts his head low to get air, so I just do slow gentle work with him. I believe his problem is a broken trachea pipe or broken wind from his racing days. Posted via Mobile Device

How is his breathing problem doing that you posted about back in January? Did you have the vet check him? Is he not sound for jumping because of it?

His breathing is always a little loud (he might just be a loud breather. I have known a lot a TBs who breathe loud) and it's not as loud when he's in shape. I haven't gotten him looked at by the vet because I just do flatwork with him and it doesn't affect him unless you are asking him to do lots of strenuous work such as galloping. As for jumping, he is perfectly sound with no leg issues. He just doesn't seem to enjoy it much. I think because he gets intimimidated if he hits the pole with his legs. I am not a trainer though, and with someone more experienced than me, he might become great at jumping. I mostly just have him for sale as a flatwork horse because that is the kind of riding I currently do with him, and I have Maestro listed as a horse for jumping because he does enjoy doing it.
