Christmas is approaching and I think Sara (short for Serendipity) would make the perfect gift for a little girl, an older rider who wants a solid trail horse, or a husband to just ride once in a while. She could even be a fox hunter as long as you started her with the hilltoppers and moved up easily. The foundation is there, but I am not a member of a hunt so she has never been to one. She is a 9 y/o, 15.2 hh (measured with a stick) thoroughbred who raced until last year.... (read more) She was a "steady Eddie" on the track, never needing to be ponied to the line and always winning some money. But now she is ready for the next phase of her life. I have been training her to be a great trail horse and she loves it. I thought after a long track career, to ask her to continue being an athlete by being three day eventer or something was probably pushing it. But she is definitely able to be a great trail horse, or a schooling-show-kind of horse, or even a horse kids could learn to ride on. She has a great mind and a very calm personality. She has no vices. She gets along with other horses, lives outside, she is barefoot, easy to catch, loves to be snuggled, stands for vet and farrier, easy to mount, easy to load, smooth gaited (you can sit her trot as easily as post it). I ride her at Rosaryville State Park all the time and she is great with dogs, bikes, joggers, bridges, mud, cars, farm equipment and creeks.
I am asking $2000 right now but as her training continues and she becomes more solid over fences and learns to collect at the trot and canter, her price will go up. I plan on riding her western too, to make her even more well rounded. But if you are interested, invest early and I will teach her to do things YOU want her to do so she is ready to go by Christmas.
If you are interested, I started a blog about her training. You can find it at adventuresinhorsetraining.wordpress.com and read all about her from the day I got her, the good and bad. There are plenty of pictures and video.
