She is a great horse. She’s sweet and gentle. I just don’t have time to train her. She’s 7. Her name is Star. She’s a quarter horse about 10 hands high. We don’t deliver.



Yeah, that horse looks a little bigger than three feet tall. And one more from Cindy, of a horse inexplicably carrying around a tree branch.

And last but certainly not least, this one from Kerry R., who writes, “$2,500 for a virtual horse with an ‘outstanding personally’? Cute mare but sadly this ad is really a testament to the failure of the California education system.”

All round/Kid safe and Begginer Safe Mare – $2500 (lakeside)

******I need to find this mare a Home ASAP. IM SELLING HER FOR A STEAL*******UNFORCHETLY, my sistuation has changed and I need to seel her ASAP. I have reduced her price. She really is worth the time to come see. I have a stunning Red Roan mare for sale. This mare is only 5 and is 100% bomb proof. She has lots of speed and she stops/turns on a dime. She has started in training for barrel racing. She can walk, trot and canter both directions in the arena and is amazing on trails. She is responsive to reining commands and english commands. I have ONLY ridden her in english a couple of times. She is great with other horses in pasture or in a padduck. She is currently barefoot and as fair as I know she has never been in shoes. I have her feet done every 6-8 weeks. She has good ground manners and has a outstanding personally. If you like horses that have personally and can make you laugh, she is your horse. She is very in your pocket and will follow you everywhere.she is super easy to handle and is an easy keeper. She loves treats especially pepermints. She dose act like a diva at times and trys to be lazy, as long as your a confadant horse owner your fine. She also stands still at the mounting block, clips, cross ties, ties, loads and hauls. She is still learning on the lunge line, she dose not like to move off you haha. All and all this horse is ready to be finished in any direction or event you like. I would suggest barrels, reining, drill team or plesure riding (western ot english).. She will make someone an awesome and flashy show horse one day. She would also be a great broodmare or trail horse. Remember she is being sold as a prospect sport horse which means she is not finished being trained. She is finished in trail riding. This mare is virtual and is kid and more experienced beginner safe.
