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. Photo06241857.jpg DSC01327.jpg DSC01402.jpg DSC01046.jpg DSC_0828.jpg
