For a few years I was riding an Appaloosa pony mare, and everywhere we went she turned heads. “She’s so cute!” was the usual cry as strangers leaned in to give her a scratch. She loved the attention, of course, and she tried extra hard to be adorable in public.

If you’re looking to add a little color to your equine collection but still want the athleticism required for sport, here’s four horses for sale with their own unique patterns to match their personalities!

Looking for its new partner: Confirmed Intermediate horse with CIC/CCI2* experience.

Canso de la Mancha: 10 y.o. gelding (Spring 2007), Tall 16’1, TB (light) body type.

Made the top three at every event attended at the Preliminary level, except at his second start where he finished 4th. Won his second Intermediate event leading straight from dressage, in the Open division.

Rides the three phases in a snaffle. The type of horse who is calm for dressage, then lights up for the XC and Stadium while staying very connected to his rider. Very honest and careful, locks to the fence. A real pleasure to work with.

Would be best suited for an Amateur or a Junior wanting to move up the levels up to Intermediate, with a safe, fun and competitive partner. This horse will never let you down if you take the time to create a bond with him. He could also make a fun jumper or dressage partner. He just came back from a jumping show where he won the Mini Prix. All eyes were on him, as usual! He also finished season champion in Dressage level 2 last year.

Cleanest medical record – never injured, not injected, no medication of any sort. Always fresh and happy to work the day after cross-country. The horse is entered for three events this fall: an Intermediate and a CIC2* in September, and a CCI2* in October.

Serious inquiries only. This horse is sold because his owner thinks he maxed at 2* and will not be comfortable at 3*. She prefers finding him a good home where he will stay within his comfort zone and make his next rider confident and competitive in any show ring. Located in Canada.

Pinto Friesian -Flashy Sport Horse

“Sky ” -turned out with more of the warm blood look than strict Friesian. He turns black bay pinto for 6 mos of the year during the cooler months. Most agreeable horse I’ve ever owned and every ride is a pleasure. Doing training level dressage well and does more advanced movements of leg yield,shoulder in, etc. He is the cool WB push ride vs tense,tight backed hot horses.

Superb trail horse has been ridden alone/grp on numerous ,scenic horse park trails throughout Colorado. May be one of those rare horses that could fox hunt calmly. V sound.. can go barefoot the whole year. Easy keeper, likes attention on the crossties. Tolerates llama right next to him in the pasture and multiple goats running under his legs and jumping off tack trunks right next to him.

For sale because he’s only ridden 3-4 x month and he should have been already been shown extensively. Can get an 8 on his sweeping,elastic walk and also stretch circles that each get coefficient scores x 2 at shows. The steady horse in dressage classes for AA and Jrs usually wins. Should also have been doing scenic trail riding all over Colorado.

This conformation pic is preliminary..doesn’t totally show the very correct conformation he has. I choose this picture of him in the winter when he came right out of the muddy pasture because it showed how trim he can get. He is not as trim now re: mos of lush pasture. Uphill neck build .. rides big ..shown on video with 5 foot nine man and he is 15 hds. Limited jump experience but brave and should learn quickly. Located in Colorado.
