Warmblood-- Free lease or sale!! PA/MD

I have my mare Bonnie up for free lease or sale. If it is a sale, I am not too worried about how far away from me she goes, as long as it is a nice place and I know she will be taken care of well. For a free lease, I would like her at a farm within an hour from where she is now so i can check up on her. She is kept in Stewartstown, PA right now, like 5min. from MD.

Bonnie is a warmblood mare. Was told she is a Westphalian, but I honestly don't know if she is for a fact. She is going to be 8 years old this year. Up to date on shots, coggins, dentist, etc until April. Stands for farrier, cross ties, bathes, loads and clips. Has never had any health or lameness issues.

She would be best for someone that wants to do eventing. She is an amazing jumper, has wonderful movement and LOVES to go out cross country. I have not done any shows with her yet, except for paperchases which she behaved perfectly on! I am planning on doing some eventing shows with her this year if she is not sold or leased. I have jumped 3' over cross country jumps and 2'6" in the ring and she could easily go higher.

Bonnie needs someone that can ride her or exercise her at least 4 times a week. Right now since the weather is bad and we don't have an indoor I have only been able to ride her once or twice a week at the most and she is getting some bad habits. Putting her head up and not really listening to my body while riding. During the Summer, she was doing everything I asked her, perfectly with no fuss at all but then I was riding her at least 4-5 days a week. She DOES need an ADVANCED rider!! She knows how to take advantage of people who are not balanced. Don't let that scare you though, if you are a good rider she will just go along and do what you ask. She is a fast learner!

If there is anything I have missed please let me know!! I do not have any pictures or videos of us jumping yet, but I am hoping to get some soon! Below are pics and videos of us on the flat though. Sale price is $3000obo!!
I need her gone by August but thought I would post her now since I will be gone a lot during the Summer for vacations. I am going to college in Rhode Island in the fall and can not take her with me.

You do realize that you will get maybe $500 for her at auction right?? A horse that has trouble framing herself over small 2' jumps and doesn't drive from behind is not going to go for $2500 anywhere around where I am. I would lower the price to $1000 and find her a good home rather than take her to auction. Do you have until the beginning of March or the end of March to rehome her?

Wow I would lease her in a heartbeat if she was closer to Alabama! She's got such a gorgeous trot, what good movement! But a green jumper... But I think with consistancy she could jump the moon!!! Too bad I'm so far away :( haha

Do you realize that if you take her to auction she has a good chance of being purchased by a kill buyer and sent to slaughter. There are not that many people who go to auctions looking for nice horses. Most people take horsese that they can no longer afford to feed. If you can't find a home for your mare, rather than take her to auction you'd be better off putting her down.

I don't know much about horses but putting her down sound a bit harsh. Am I the only one?

That is harsh. People do look for nice horses at auctions. They aren't all kill buyers.
