I have had Spirit for a little over 6 months. I did some training with this horse when she was under the care of her previous owners and I grew very fond of her personality and work ethic. When the owners decided they wanted out of horses and asked me if I would take Spirit, I wasn't about to refuse the opportunity.... (read more) I took Spirit however, with the expressed intention of training and then re-homing her. As much as I like Spirit, I have three other permanent horse residents and I do NOT need four!
Spirit has a wonderful overall disposition. Her ground manners are very good. She is great under-saddle, whether that be on the trail or in the arena. She has primarily been ridden and trained English with a foundation in basic Dressage. She has been started over low fences and I can't say she is an incredibly good jumper, but she gives it a good effort. Spirit works very hard to please her rider as best as she can no matter what you ask her to do. She would be best suited for an Intermediate rider, maybe even a confident advanced beginner. I have used her in my lesson program with several of my Intermediate students and she does exceptionally well with youth.
Spirit is 100% sound. Her legs and hooves are strong and sturdy. She has been kept up to date on worming and Sand Clear. Also received her annual 7-way vaccine in September (2014). I have not had her vet checked because I have had absolutely no reason to and I know that her previous owners did have her checked not too long before I took Spirit. Vet checks are welcome though.
I'm asking $2000. I'm in no hurry to sell Spirit. I'm looking to find her a good, caring home that suits her abilities and personality well. I will give a 14 day trial period. Questions are welcome and encouraged. You can contact me, Lauren, at email@example.com. I understand if you would prefer to call me, however I still ask that you contact me through email first. I am a full-time student with a hectic schedule and email is much more convenient for me to respond too. Thanks.
