Looking for a Safe but Spirited Trail Horse
For a lighter girl, so a little more fine boned is fine. This is an intermediate rider looking for a good safe, sound trail horse with some spirit to do compeditive trail, endurance and mountain riding. She has a great natural seat and is a very good rider with several years of regular riding experience, but has lost some confidence due to some recent falls(not rider error) and has no experience starting colts or fixing problem horses, so a well broke horse is a must.
She had to retire her old arab gelding, as he has cancer and is developing coordination problems.(long story, seller lied to her about the horses age, beleived he was 10, actually 25, what were beleived to be benign lumps were actually actively spreading cancer.)
-no older than 15, preferably 6-10
-sound for distance riding
-sane, no buck, bolt, rear or serious vices
-no stallions, mares or geldings only
-must be decent around other horses, will be living in a herd situation.
-well broke, good on trails.
Loves greys, but color doesnt really matter. Will have a loving, responsible, long term home. No qh's or off the track thoroughbreds. Would prefer an arab or arab cross, but open to other breeds.
Max budget $1500
Thanks for reading :)
