Casual horse hunt

Postby heddylamar » Wed Sep 12, 2018 10:50 pm

Mom's on the lookout for a new horse. She's open to all breeds, sex, colors, etc.

Requirements:
- between 14H and 16H
- sane
- quiet
- wtc
- suitable for pleasure/trail riding, with a bit of low level dressage (she may never show)
- located within a day's drive of Memphis, TN
- under $4k

She just lost her 28yo appy gelding, who came to us as a 2yo. He was a quirky character, but quiet and level-headed. The only times he ever exhibited any ye-haw let's spook or buck were on his first encounter with a peacock around age 4, and when a dirt bike came flying up behind us on trail (G leapt and kicked, narrowly missing the guy's head). He just wasn't interested in expending energy on any unecessary movement :lol:

Mom needs a horse of the same caliber.

So, if you personally know of a suitable horse, please let me know. We're not looking through sales pages, but going by word of mouth. And there's no time frame -- she's in no rush.

Condolences in the loss of her riding buddy. Good luck in your search for a new partner, it's hard to replace the steady eddies that we trusted so much.

Thanks. It's hard. He was such a good guy, and the absolute perfect fit for her.
