Risky Business IX – New Hampshire
“16.3h 18 year old Irish Sport Horse gelding is free to a good home, as a companion horse or a light ride for an experienced rider (as he still thinks he can event). Irish has done his job as an eventer and sadly his hocks cant handle the stress of it anymore. He is the friendliest horse youll find, loves to be around people and other horses. Gets along great with anyone, very well behaved with kids and doesnt mind loud noises. Irish loves to be groomed and loves attention. He is a total love bug and always gives kisses. He has been my best friend and has been the absolute perfect first horse for me so, my biggest priority is finding him the best home, for him to be well cared for and loved is what I am asking for. Please feel free to message me for more information.”
Star’s Graceful Diamond – Washington
“Mona is a sweet 15.1h, 13yr trail horse who has very slight arthritis in her right hind fetlock. that needs bi-annual treatment to manage. Shes been x-rayed, blocked and injected and is fine for light riding. In the pasture she seems fine, strong, healthy, vibrant. Under saddle she will short stride her right hind a bit without medication. Im a bigger rider and she needs a lighter weight rider! She is an awesome trail horse so Im really sad that I able to continue with her. She crosses bridges, water, fine out alone or with others and can be ponied off of. She is a beautiful mare. Goes fine on the trail with other gaited or non-gated horses. Knows her leg aids, very responsive. Suitable for an intermediate rider on up. She is a dominant mare so will take advantage of a week, timid or beginner rider. No other health issues. NOT mare-ish or hormonal. Easy keeper and safe on full pasture. Happy in English or Western tack. Free to the right home. Contact: (509) 304-5179”
Snow On The Hill – New Hampshire
“I’m looking for a companion home in NH/VT/MA for my 17 yo TWH, Ghost.
14.3h, great barefoot feet, easy keeper (no grain), just supps and hay. Perfect ground maners, no vices, loads, loves baths, swims, camps. Low in the pecking order. Gets along great with people, dogs, other horses, etc… Has some Parelli experience.
Ghost can be ridden. He can get a little fast at times and doesnt have a smooth gait.”
Cartwright – Pennsylvania
“Cartwright is relatively sound (has mild arthritis in right shoulder) and has been in retirement for the last two years. He would be best as a companion to another horse. I have owned him for 12 years and I rode him as a hunter/jumper, trail riding and fox-hunting. He is sweet, gets on well with other horses and is not a bully.
If he is going to be ridden, he needs an experienced rider as he can be spooky and he no longer likes to jump. He would be good on the flat and trail riding.
He is free to a good home only. I must be able to check references and personally see where and how he will live and be cared for.
I am giving him up only because I am unemployed and can no longer afford to keep him.”
Geschenk – Georgia
“I am looking for a new home for my show horse. We were showing last year but my career has taken me away from riding and I just don’t have the time to keep him in shape. He is 20 but we were showing in the jumpers last year and he is still happy to go and do!
I had a few options to lease him locally but I know that I won’t be back to riding in the next several years so I am looking for a forever home for him. He would be happy with a child or adult and he is super sweet and uncomplicated. you can check his show record on USEF and see that he was a champion. I think his best situation would be someone looking for a horse to have fun with and possibly show occasionally. He probably shouldn’t jump above 2-2’6″ anymore but I think he would stay happy and sound at that level.
I have decided to offer him for free to open the door to some other folks that could give him a great home but were not willing to pay. I am not willing to let him go to a lesson program or university riding program. If you think this could be a fit I would like to start with a 6 month free lease at your place (as unless you are local I probably wont know you!). If everything works out in six months I will be more than happy to sign him over. If either you or I are not happy I will be glad to take him back and try to find a better fit!
Geschenk is at a barn in Powder Springs, GA and I would be happy for someone to come and meet him and ride him.”
