    Unhappy Sampsons for sale

    I know it's a stretch but I figured I'd start here.

    I sadly have to put my Belgian up for sale.

    He's 18.2 and 13 years old. He's not registered. I have him in training under saddle. I haven't yet cantered him under saddle but he has a very big forward trot and from what I've been told he has past training under one cart hitch. He does not neck rein, only direct reining. I just can't afford him since he was dumped on me and my big girl but I will be continuing his ground work and riding him under saddle until I find a suitable home for him.
    He's a very cuddly in your pocket horse. He can get a little pushy when seeking attention and I've just been correcting him by backing him up and telling him no rubbing. So far it works pretty well and he tries his best to find his feet and respect your space.

    He needs front shoes to correct some very bad past farrier work and hopefully in the future he'll be able to go barefoot. He's good with mares and geldings but needs his own place to eat because he's easily bullied away from food. I'm currently building his weight back and the vet said he has about 300+ pounds to go but he's looking a lot better.

    Things he needs work on:
    He lunges bought directions although going to the right is not his favorite direction.
    His back left foot he's very iffy on. He's not kicky but he's very nervous around that hoof and doesn't want to pick it up for very long if at all. I've been doing constant reward work with him for every time he lets me hold it and he's getting better. He had an incident with a bad farrier and he's untrusting with that hind leg now.
    He's ok with dogs IF he can see them. If they are behind him at all he gets stompy and nervous. I believe he was chased by some when he was younger just by the way he reacts when they are around.

    He needs an experienced and patient rider
    . He hauls fine in a step up with plenty of room to move around but isn't so sure about ramp loading trailers. Once he's inside he's fine, it's getting him in there that he's not sure about.

    He comes with a draft size parelli halter, parelli hackamore bridle, western bridle and his brush box.
    I love this horse and I really wish I had the means to take care of him but under the circumstances of acquiring him I was not at all prepared to take him long term as I had hoped.

    I'm adding a recent picture of him and I'll do my best to get picture of him under saddle and possibly a video if I can figure it out.
    I have no way to haul him myself but I do have connections that are options to haul him.
    He is available to a good home only. I'm asking 1000 for him but negotiable to good home.

    If I was closer i'd take him. My mom loves and wants a draft.

    Aw, I'm so sorry that it didn't work out with him. I wish that I could give him a home :(. I hope you find a good place for him.

    I'm nervous about putting him on a sale site because I don't want him ending up in a bad place.

    You can always check out his new home to see if it is up to your standards! :)

    Wish I could take him in, but no more room! Good luck finding him a good home

    I really hope you find the right home for him. He is a gorgeous guy.

    My trainer suggests I set him up for a Care lease with option to buy that way I can kind of keep an eye on him before letting him go completely. I just don't know exactly what to put in the ad. Is this one on here ok? Should I just copy and paste? I've never done this before.

    The ad you put here is really nice and well described, might be a little long for some website but try ! ( they have a number of characters you can't go over I think)
    But I think its better to have a well described ad, where you say everything people want to hear before considering buying a horse.
    Your trainer idea is right, it is a great idea so you can keep an eye on him, and make sure you sell him to the right home.
    I should have done something like this,
    A piece of advice from my experience, make sure you check really well the person you will sell him to! Don't fall for it if they re just nice and all.
