Post FOR SALE: 7yo Appendix Paint Mare

7yo Appendix (Thoroughbred x Quarter Horse) Mare - Fantastic Horse! MAKE ME AN OFFER!!! for sale in Orange, New York, United States of America :: HorseClicks

See above link for pictures!

15.3hh 7 year old Appendix paint mare trained and shown in Lower Levels of Dressage as well as jumping. Easily clears 3' 6" jumps with no hesitation, has cleared 4', and definitely has the potential to go higher. She is calm and collected under saddle, responds to the seat with ease along with leg yields, and has the most fluid gaits I have ever ridden. Her trot is smooth and ideal, her canter is collected and also fluid. Her ground manners are impeccable. She has the Thoroughbred build with Quarter Horse feet (thank God!).

She has had 4 months professional training with an Olympic Equestrian trainer, who not only broke her correctly (4 years ago), but sacked her out (she's not afraid of anything new, may have slight unsureness the first few times you introduce it, but she won't bolt in the opposite direction), and taught her jumping and dressage CORRECTLY.

She has no vices, no bite, no buck, no rear, no cribbing. Really an easy keeper. She had four shoes on for two years, however I switched her to barefoot about 5 months ago and she's doing fantastic!

Currently being fed twice per day, with unlimited hay and 24/7 turnout. She has been stalled in the past, however she really likes being out with other horses. She is not dominant, but not a pushover either, so she holds her own in the paddock while being respectful of everyone around her.

I have taken her out on trails, through water, with other horses and alone, and the worst that ever happened was when she saw a flock of birds rising out of a field, she froze and took three steps back. She does not bolt. She will also jump anything out on the trail without hesitation.

Stands for farrier (will even give you her feet without asking if you stand by them), clips, ties, bathes, fly spray (not around her face, you have to wipe it on her), anything.

UTD on all shots (as of 6/4/13), coggins (neg), and rabies. Farrier coming 6/9/13, and has always said she has textbook feet.

I would recommend an Intermediate rider, just because an inexperienced rider could push some buttons the horse knows but they may not, and get an undesired response. Also keep in mind she is young! So she may test you if you are not paying attention! Once you establish you are her leader, she will follow you wherever you lead. She is a VERY loving horse.

I bought this horse directly from the breeder, and she has registration papers that have not been submitted to the APHA. One other person owned her for 2 years of her life, and I have contact with her, so I know where this horse has been and what this horse knows. I would like to have open communication with the buyer about her, and if at any point you can no longer take care of her, I would like to be notified. I do NOT want this horse ending up at the slaughterhouse because you can no longer pay to feed her!! She is way too good of a horse with way too much potential to be disposed of like a piece of meat.

The only reason I'm selling her is because I'm no longer an English rider. I have switched disciplines and need a horse that has been trained in Western riding. She is truly down to the bone an English horse and prefers to stay that way, but will take a Western saddle for trail rides.

Will also consider a trade for a gelding 15h and taller who neck reins. Under 10 years old.

Nice horse. Why don't you just train her to neck rein?

Carpe Diem!

I've tried... she starts ignoring the bit and gets frustrated. She also rides with her head set like an English horse, so with her face. And she doesn't like going fast with a western saddle. She freaks out since she's always been ridden with english tack. I'm barrel racing now and need a down to the bone western horse. She has speed but is miserable running barrels.

I guess that makes sense. I have never had much trouble teaching neck reining, but then I have never been in a hurry. I just do both the direct rein and the indirect rein at the same time. Eventually they respond to neck reining. It can take a long time though.

This is a nice horse. If I were in the market and lived closer, I'd sure consider her.

Carpe Diem!
