VIDEOS: Annie (for Sale)-walking and Trotting
If you're looking for your next trail horse, gaming horse or a great horse to train for jumping/English classes, Annie is your girl! She is very willing, and anyone can ride her.
Skinny Dippin Slew, aka "Annie" is an absolute sweetie and registered with The Jockey Club (have papers on her). She is 15.2 hands and chestnut with a blaze and 4 socks. She raced for 4 years in Nebraska, and won almost $50,000. She then sat in a pasture for 2 years, and I bought her over a year ago.
She is a great-grandaughter of Seattle Slew, with some Buckpasser and Northern Dancer thrown in. I was told by someone who knows more about her bloodlines than I do that the way she is bred, she should be level-headed and pretty accepting of most situations as they come. From what I've seen from her, I agree with that.
Anyone can ride her--she is not spooky at all, and nothing bothers her (cars driving by, tractors/big machinery, birds flying up, etc.). She loads, lunges, stands tied, and is perfect for the vet and farrier. No bite or kick, and no rearing as long as you don't put a tie-down on her. Does not need to be lunged before you get on, and not hot under saddle. Very comfortable with walking on a loose rein. We have been working on transitions (walk-trot-halt-back) to get her using her back properly, and have also been working on standing still (being an off-track Thoroughbred, this was something she never knew until she met me) under saddle and when a rider is mounting. She is gentle on turnout blankets, respects fencing, and goes barefoot with rare trims (great feet for an ex-racehorse). She does great with other horses and gets along with everyone. Even though she's a mare, you can't tell when she's in heat...she's very easy going.
Annie is built to be a jumper, and as much as I'd love to work with her on it, I don't believe in green working with green, and I know next to nothing about jumpers. She has been to several open shows, where we did some barrel, pole bending, and flag race patterns at a trot. I'm looking for more of a western pattern/rail type horse (already have two gaming horses) and am open to trades.
She is an awesome horse, and I think she has great potential...it's not fair for her to put up with someone (me) who knows nothing about jumping, and who doesn't want to just ride trails all day. She will have her teeth floated in January, and hooves were just trimmed. She had spring vaccinations and is current on Coggins.
May be willing to deliver. Additional photos and video available upon demand. Make an offer on this sweet girl--to a good home only! If she doesn't sell, I will be putting her on gaming patterns and working on English flatwork.
May be able to deliver for a fee.
