WTB: My next BFF - All-Around Horse in Eastern PA
Looking for a nice, sweet, calm all-around horse for hunter lessons, dressage lessons, and occassional group trail rides. Breed/sex/color doesn't really matter. 15.2-16.2 hands with great ground manners for cross-tieing, grooming, baths, farrier, trailering, and tolerant of kisses, hugs, etc! Perfect horse would be something that will correct me as I regain my seat after years of not riding regularly (i.e. responding when seats and aids are CORRECT). Confidence builder, in-your pocket personality type of horse. Something that can go to an occassional fun show and help me find my focus (still undecided between returning to hunters or making the switch to dressage).
I grew up riding, showing and finishing hunters & jumpers for about 12 years, then took a break when I was 20 to join the working world. Also worked on breeding farms, racing farms and big show barns, so I have a versitle background and knowledge. A great home promised! My horses are extremely well taken care of and well-loved!
Well, I guess I'll bump this since the weekend's trial period was a no-go!
didnt you find a horse?
Not exactly! You can check out the thread in Horse Talk to read about the drama filled weekend :(
I have a horse that his lease will be up in the Spring and I would be willing to do a free lease to you if you were interested. He is my baby and I don't really want to give up ownership unless he finds the PERFECT home so I would rather lease. I raised him from a neglected yearling and he is now coming 14. But I am in college and looking to graduate and start my way up the job market ladder and he isn't getting enough attention/exercise with me. He is a QH, does H/J, first level dressage and also a little western pleasure/gymkhana. He is a jack of all trades, but can be lazy so he needs ridden consistently to stay in shape, balanced, etc. He does well if you get occasional lessons or can have an advanced rider school him occasionally to really make him collect and use himself but he will pack anyone around, I have given lessons to 5 year olds on him and he treats them like glass. He is a big 15.2 hh around 1200 pounds and a total puppy dog. He is very responsive, but he will ignore you until you get things just right. He is a great teacher and will really get you "back in the saddle". If you're interested he is located in State College, Pa. If you would like to come try him out/watch him be ridden then let me know and we can set that up next time the ground thaws out a bit!! Go to Nittany Equestrian Center - I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted. to see pictures of him. He is Raymond and he's a chestnut gelding. The best way to get ahold of me is to email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Thanks for the info! I already found my new BFF but I'll keep this in mind if I hear of anyone looking in PA!
