We have a great ranch horse for sale, named Fritz. She comes from the prized nr 1 Quarter Horse breeder in South Dakota, Cee Hearts, where she was the horse of choice for the rancher who used her to round up the cows. From dozens of horses he preferred this one horse always. You can see him ride her in this video: https://www.youtube.com/embed/BXykzg9LIPo (copy the url and paste it into Youtube).
I bought her for trail rides, because we live in the mountains of Colorado.... (read more) Right from the start she was loved by everybody: the farrier was amazed how calm she was and wished he had her as her own. Another horse owner used her to calm down her own horse with the farrier.
She loads well, no hassle, and is easy to catch. Other horses run away, but she could even be caught by our neighbor when she got out of the pasture. And he has zero experience with horses.
We had our kids ride her, without any problems.
She has a wonderful smooth jog that can go on forever. She doesn't always take her lead when galloping, but that's probably my bad, since I have no clue (being a green rider) how to tell her to take the right lead.
So if Fritz is such a good horse, why would I sell her? Because I am really green myself. The only horses I had in the past were 16+ and they could handle my clumsiness.
Fritz is still pretty young and although she has a very nice disposition, she did figure out my lack of experience. During the past winter months, I never rode her, and when I got back on her and wanted to get her into a lope, I was way too aggressive with my legs and she made a buck. Nothing wild, but it did show me that I probably should get an old horse, because of my lack of experience.
I had an experienced rider come and check her out and she was a perfect ride for him. Gave no problems whosoever, as you can see in the videos.
My daughter could also ride her smoothy, walk, trot, lope, the whole deal really awesome.
However the next day we had a young man come try her, and he had very little experience. When mounting her, instead of lifting himself onto the saddle, he dragged the saddle towards him, which scared her and she ran off.
So she is still a bit green and does need a rider that knows what he/she is doing.
As you can see in this video, she has great potential: https://www.youtube.com/embed/BXykzg9LIPo (copy the url and paste it into Youtube).
She was the horse of choice for a trainer at Cee Hearts, who could pick from dozens of horses, he loved her most.
Fritz is registered and has good bloodlines.
She only needs somebody who can keep her at the level she was at, when I bought her. Because she is so smart, she will pick up right where the the trainer left her and be an amazing horse.
Meanwhile I need to get some riding lessons and get my stuff together.
This is an opportunity for somebody who has more experience with horses, to have a great horse with great conformation and disposition, and good moves, and that has a professional training foundation, but just needs to be refreshed.
