From reader Emily Plechavy, who writes, “Best deal ever! $500 for all three!”

3 HORSES MUST GO – $500 (Allentown, Pennsylvania)

12 year old bay Thoroughbred gelding, big guy, 18.0 hands. Previously used for lessons, great ground manners. He had a tie-back procedure when he was on the track so this causes him to grunt while hes eating, to help this you must soak his grain and feed him his hay on the ground instead of a hay net. He rides both english and western. He is great for ring work. He has the potential to be trained in any discipline, very straight & correct legs.

20 year old great Thoroughbred gelding, also pretty big 17.1 hands tall. Very quiet and slow moving so would be great for a beginner or for lessons. Was previously used as a high level Dressage horse and also jumping 3 + ft. He is retired from that now and he is great on the trails and on the road, he doesn't spook at anything driving past him. Also rides both english and western.

10 year old grey Andalusian mare… 16.2 hands. She can not be ridden due to an old injury called Stringhalt. Its hard to explain how it affects her, but it can be seen. It causes her no pain. She can be used for breeding, I'm sure she'd pop out some beauties. She's the backyard type of horse to just spend time with and pamper. I'm pretty sure she has a past with some sort of abuse in it because she does spook at random big movements. All that needs to fix is time spent with her so she knows nothing will hurt her.

They all came from a rescue/auction so I do not have a clear timeline of their past. First horse has a negative coggins paper, Second horse has registration papers, Third horse has no papers at all. They need someone to consistantly work and spend time with them I do not have the money or time anymore to spend with them enough. I havent even ridden them in about 3 months. Right now they're just being pets. We are moving at the end of October so the sooner the better. Please call don't email 484-335-3338. $500 firm for all 3 as a group
