WANTED Horse breaker, starter, trainer (Grand Junction)

Have a two year old filly that is a super super bitch:comes at you with teeth bearing ears back, can’T catch, kicks etc. EXTREMELY well bred. It’s in the genes. Her grandmother tried to kill her rider at Oklahoma City many years ago. Never been tied up. Anyone interested in a challenge before she goes to the glue factor, if I can get her loaded.


Christy Z. sent us this ad for a “17.5” hand horse for sale:

17.5 hands horse for sale thoroughbred 14 years old Good Ryder – $599 (Waveland AR)

We are selling our horse. She is very gentle when she is worked. She is a full thoroughbred and a retired race horse. (has a tattoo on her upper lip) We have had her for 2 or more years and we really don’t work her enough.

I have made a video on YouTube for you to see more of her. You WILL have to copy and paste the link because CL won’t allow you to click anymore.

Copy and paste here :

When we got her she was skin and bone, she now weights a bunch. Im guessing 1300-1400 lbs and is 17-18 hands tall. She is a BIG horse and will hold the largest of riders.

You need to know that she does not like to load trailers. Im sure she could be trained out of it but you need to really know what you’re doing because she has anxiety issues when being trapped. After you work her for a few mins she is very submissive but she gets worked so little that it can be tough to catch her. When I first got her she didn’t have that problem. We just don’t need a horse that needs this much work.

In the video you can see her letting a child ride her and it was his 1st time on a horse. Please watch video before texting me if you can.



And… reader Rudi E. sent us the following ad with the note, “Like challenging projects? Here’s the most recent photo (a baby pic) of a paint draft stud colt who’s grown a bit since- he’s now 17 hands and apparently hasn’t had any training except being lead out to pasture. Good with mares (they’ve see him mounting them in the field). Just what you’re looking for?”
