Beautiful and athletic 10 year old chestnut tb mare with upper level potential, JC reg. Goldriverdancer. Dancer is a talented and compact athlete (15.3hh) but do not let her size fool you. Currently competing at training level eventing (3’3”) and schooling preliminary (3’6”) with talent for more. Dancer runs all three phases in a snaffle and is not mareish. She is a scopey jumper and would cross over nicely into the jumper ring! Lovely movement and plenty of aptitude and bravery for eventing.
Clips, hauls, bathes, good for farrier. Dancer may not be suitable for a beginner as she can be sensitive, but perfect for the young rider on a budget or an adult amateur looking to move up. Owner would prefer to keep her but finances force the sale. Price will increase with training and show progress. A fabulous opportunity to purchase a talented athlete to take you to the top! Located in California.
Stevie Ray Burger AKA Burger is a 2008 OTTB gelding. Has been in a consistent lesson program with a CCI 4* eventer. Burger is quiet on the flat with 3 comfortable gaits. Very brave in the jumping phases. Has never had a cross-country jumping penalty. Burger has successfully completed training level in the ribbons and has the potential to move up the levels. Located in Kentucky.
This is a rare find! “Cobalt” (aka Blue) 2009 15.3H Paint Gelding. Successfully moved up to the Preliminary Level in September 2017. Lots of good novice/training miles with a Junior Rider. Blue is a very eye-catching horse with a kind, laid-back, go with the flow type personality. Well schooled in the dressage with comfortable gaits. The same at shows as at home. Good jumper that keeps getting even better. Very reliable cross-country.
Brave yet happy to lope around the lower levels. Blue could easily be ready for a 1* in 2018 with an experienced rider or will happily cruise around the lower levels. Very easy in every way – hacks out quietly, happy to be in but can live out, turn out with anyone or alone, easy to clip, will hang out in the cross-ties – a no fuss type horse. Full vetting from November 2016. Located in Virginia.
