"AND A STICK"

What? Like a lunge whip or something? Or a legitimate stick?

He actually looks like he could go for something more drafty...

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Oh that would be me looking for shorter horses, and also most of the people here at my barn. Getting old, knees aren't what they were (why is when I was younger I never THOUGHT about my knees? Could run and jump off stuff and never think about them. Now everything I do physically there they are, right front in my thoughts?) so I need something shorter and easy for me to get up on. Plus I'm not as slim as I used to be either.

That does make sense. It was funny because your legs looked so long in the pictures (if that's you in the photos) that it made the horse look short, lol. I know all about bad knees, they suck. That's what's great about mounting blocks.

You know what I don't get? Selling a horse that is absolutely perfect for anyone to ride, no vices, no problems, perfect trail companion blah blah blah, and then at the end of the ad, "May Trade". Um, if the horse is so perfect, why would you need a trade? (And what's even worse are the ads that say selling because of too many mouths to feed, and then STILL say, "may trade" for this or that type of horse, pony, mule, etc. What's THAT about?)

Great trail horse- may trade!! - $900 (NC)
14.2h 12yo bay grade gelding. Many, many trail miles. We have ridden him in the mountains and he is safe and careful over rough terrain. Will go anywhere you point him. He is my go-to guy when I need a horse for an inexperienced rider on the trail. I have also used him to pony colts.

I recommend an intermediate or advanced beginner rider as he is not what I would call a "plod along" type. I have taken him out with gaited horses and he keeps up with no trouble. He is forward and likes to walk out on the trails but is not pushy.


This guy is an easy keeper- does not require shoes, and he gets along with other horses. He's been turned out with every horse I have and does fine with all. He loads, cross ties, bathes, clips and has been hobbled. He is up to date on shots, has a current coggins, his teeth were floated last fall and he is on a deworming schedule.

*****MAY TRADE*****

I agree with the thing about people saying they have too many horses to feed, but yet their horse is listed for trade. But as far as the thing about "if the horse is so perfect then why sell/trade it" - My mare is absolutely wonderful. Perfect beginners horse. Experienced on the trails. Dead broke. Loads of miles. No health problems. But she is for sale or trade. Why? I love her to death, but she's just not what I need right now. I really want a horse that has a little more get-up-and-go and a little less...boring for lack of a better word. Sometimes, horse just aren't exactly what people are looking for. That doesn't make them bad horses at all.

One man's wrong lead is another man's counter canter.
