Gorgeous 5 yr tobiano gelding - looks and personality!



Seriously eye catching bay & white tobiano for sale in MD. 5 years old, about 15.1/15.2h with size (wears 48" girth and 76"/78" blanket).

He'd make a fabulous local hunter or a super fun jumper/event partner. He is green but is really nicely started under saddle with over 6 months of work. Quietly walk, trot, canter with small jumps, hacks out, goes cross country (small natural jumps, water, banks, drops). Has started simple lateral work and establishing a consistent contact.

Can't say enough about his willingness and intelligence under saddle and his sweet personality on the ground. He has fabulous manners all around.

Asking $3,000, negotiable to a good, long term home as I really adore this guy and think he has real potential in good hands.

Have you put him on equine.com or dreamhorse.com? I'm very sure someone is going to snatch him right up! You didnt include where you are located.

Thanks! He's not listed on the major search sites right now.. I plan to get him more exposure in the spring but for now am just advertising him on a small scale. To be more specific on his location, he's in Poolesville, MD. Roughly 45 minutes NW of DC.

Poolesville is in western Montgomery County and a short ride away from Leesburg, VA.

Because the market is on the low side, I would still strongly suggest posting him online as well. I think it's going to be difficult to get someone to grab on to see him. On the best case scenario where you do end up having people interested in him, then you can always turn offers down if they are not what you want.
Good Luck

Thanks My2Geldings. I appreciate the input. Going to hold off on the more widespread advertising for a few reasons - #1, he doesn't need to go. #2, winter is the worst time for sales and I don't want people to see his ad when they start shopping in the spring and figure he's sat on the market for four months because he's a loser

Just putting him out there lowkey for now. If there's interest, great. If not, he'll have a few more miles on him by spring and I'll get him cleaned up, new pics/video and go from there! I do appreciate the input though, I know where you're coming from.

Larissa, did your friend's friend not do well with him? Sorry to hear that; I thought he had found his 'forever' person.

For anyone interested, this is a lovely horse. I rode him myself, and as Larissa said, he's definitely willing and has a fetching personality.

I'm sure you'll find just the right buyer for him, especially since you don't have to sell him.

BTW, in case you're wondering, I'm arabhorse2 from COTH....

Hey arabhorse

Everyone who met him loved him, but none of the situations panned out. The gal I really wanted to take him ended up taking on an auctionbound horse at the last minute. There is definitely no shortage of horses to fill empty homes!!

It was a frustrating process and I ran out of patience just as my other two demanded some time off. Spotty's been my main man for a few months now Hope your new TB is working out well!!
