All Around Amateur/Junior Event Horse

Lego is a 16hh, 2011 AQHA registered Appendix. He has been successfully eventing through beginner novice level. He hasn’t had a jump penalty and won his last event. He will move up to Novice this spring. A genuine guy that is brave cross country and the bascule of a show hunter. Lego is an eye-catching mover with three lovely gaits.

He loves to hack out only or in a group and doesn’t need a full time rider. He is suited for someone who has other obligations in life and wants a nice horse to enjoy in their free time. Lego loads, clips, bathes, stands for the farrier, crossties, etc extremely well. He is a very lovable guy that is looking for his next rider. Located in Kentucky.

Celtic Class: Novice Packer!

Celtic Class: 2007 16.1h bay Thoroughbred mare. This lovely mare is an experienced lower level event horse with scope for more. She would be just as happy to pack a rider around the lower levels, as she would be to move up the levels. Celtic Class has earned several ribbons at Novice with her good movement and super jump. She also has a lead change! Perfectly suitable for a junior, young rider or adult amateur. Located in Pennsylvania.

Safe & Flashy Wonder Pony

Sadly outgrown, Tinker Toy the wonder pony is ready to compete! She has almost done it all! Eventing, fox hunting, dressage, Pony Club, tetrathalon, some games, trail riding, parades, Buck Brannaman clinic, but she is also a fabulous jumper! This mare is clean, scopey (could easily go 3’+ with the right rider), and always in the ribbons (mainly blue). She hauls anywhere, self-loads, hops right off and is ready to play!

My daughter has used her extensively in Pony Club. Tink would be a suitable mount for a solid D2 and could go up through C1 or C2 depending on the rider. Not a brand new beginner’s ride, but definitely a step up pony for a confident rider. She can be adjustable and add strides. She has a reliable flying lead change (auto and on demand). She’s very handy and agile. She is an easy keeper- shod in front but we’ve also kept her barefoot. Located in Missouri.
