Good horses are worth the travel Haha. Just kidding, when you have to cross a state or more, that's a bit extreme. All of our horses have been around 8 hour drives, and in my opinion, they're worth it.

But if you decide someday when you're bored that you'd like to come take a look, just let me know.

Hey I have been thinking about it a lot and just can't find anything around here. Couple of questions, has she ever been around gun shot? I want a mounted shooting horse. I'm starting Gizmo but he doesn't have the speed. Also do you think you could get me a price on shipping?

She's been around gunshots, not really close. We live where there's a lot of hunting and random shooting, so she's grown used to that. I wouldn't be the one to try to shoot near her, I've never used a gun. But I'm fairly sure she'd adjust quickly.

I totally forgot I had videos up on youtube of her. There's a video of the typical whatever, and one of her English/over fences.

English- Western-
You can see in the western video how ultra-smooth her gaits are. We're working on her neck-reining and she's picking it up really well. At 6:05, you can hear a gunshot from our neighbors and see she doesn't react to it at all.

Wow she seems super great. I will show my boyfriend tonight. She will be his horse. But she will be here with me and Gizmo. How would I find out how much it would be to ship her? You are actually only a six hour drive from me, which isn't that bad. I don't know if I could find someone to trailer her though.

I've never had a horse shipped, I wouldn't know what the charges are. I'd ask around about shipping. I'm not sure if my mother would be willing to ship her up for you, and even if she were, I'm not sure how soon we could get her up there seeing as we participate in a travel volleyball league and are gone at least one day of most weekends.

As for the mounted shooting, and I'm just considering your safety, I'm not so sure how she'd take it(my mom isn't so thrilled about thinking of her plus a gun). She's a shy horse, and she sometimes is rather spooky. I'm not meaning this to turn you away, because I think she'd be a great mount for you or your boyfriend, just maybe minus a gun. She was abused before we got her, so it may take some time for her to get used to a new owner.

Oh yeah for sure I would make she she would be able to do it and everything. Also we don't use live ammo with mounted shooting so she couldn't get hurt, if your mom is worried about that aspect of it. Yes, I might be a bit anyways because I would have to add onto the barn to create her own stall. Money isn't a problem with building it, just the snow it still has yet to melt here, and everything will be super muddy for a while after it does.

She really doesn't need a stall, she hates being cooped up. She doesn't have her own stall here, and I thoroughly believe she prefers it that way.

My mom isn't worried about her getting hurt. I've learned a lot about mounted shooting. It's just the fear she may have of the gun and the noise that my mom is concerned about. She thinks that being abused was enough fear for a lifetime.

Is mounted shooting what your boyfriend wanted her for as well? Or was he hoping for a trail horse or something?

He really wants a trail horse. I don't think he would have the time to do the mounted shooting like I do.

She's very cute. Good luck. And as for her height... I'm 6ft and my stallion is 14.3... the biggest horse I have is 15.2.... I prefer it that way.
