Everyone looks for something different in their next event horse: a competitive powerhouse, a teachable youngster, a forgiving schoolmaster. But for some riders, their horse’s personality is just as important as their talent and potential. Here are four horses for sale with a particularly fun personality, great brain or sweet demeanor.

2011 16.3hh TB Gelding **Fancy, Talented, Sane**

JC Doctor Action, 6 year old 16.3hh OTTB Gelding, Located in Trumansburg, NY. This stunning guy just came home from the 2017 Thoroughbred Makeover were he placed 5th in Dressage out of nearly 80 horses! He also put in an impressive Show Jumping round and earned a great placing!

“Wilson” is a tall, handsome gelding that just oozes quality and has a great brain. This guy has serious potential as an upper level event horse or Show Jumper. He has the scope and bravery to get you through XC and stadium and the lovely movement and finesse to earn the best dressage scores. With 3 stunning, powerful gaits, that are just being developed, he will be a knockout in the Dressage arena. He has been successful shown in 2’6 Jumpers and has schooled XC and competed in a Cross Derby without batting an eye at anything.

Wilson would be perfect mount for an ambitious rider looking for a horse to bring up the levels. He hacks out like a gentleman on trails, alone or with a group, and loves to play in and walk through puddles, ponds, and creeks. Wilson is a solid citizen; he has wonderful ground manners both on and off the farm, stands for vet and farrier, loads and rides well. Located in New York.

Doc Daneka; Flashy 6 yr old OTTB. Fancy with a lovely jump

Doc daneka; aka Dan is a 16.2H Gelding with lots of flash and chrome and a personality to match.
Started in a professional training program last year in Aiken SC, Dan has spent the year getting many schooling miles. Dan is schooling well and has taught some lessons in our schooling program.

He has been very brave schooling and jumping but also enjoys the flat and could be a competitive flat horse. Priced to sell before we travel back south. Ready to start competing 2018 with the right new owner. Located in Tennessee.

Solid Training Horse w Prelim Experience

FR’s Check It Out Now “Billy” is a 2009 15.3h mostly TB gelding (some KWPN) with a desire to please and a puppy dog personality. He has a solid record at training and some prelim experience. He’s been ridden by an amateur since he was 5. He could pack around the lower levels with a kid or adult amateur or be taken back up the levels by a more experienced rider. Consistently scores in the mid/low 30s. Placed in the Top 20 at AEC’s in 2016. Jumped clear around his first prelim in 2016. If I were able to keep him I’d plan on moving him back up to prelim very soon.

Plenty of scope and floaty movement makes him stand out to the judges. He has a sensitive mouth and does not get strong on cross country, easily adjustable to the fences. He’s very forgiving and won’t hold a grudge when his rider makes mistakes. Knows his job and takes you to the fences. Could be a great horse for a kid coming off a pony and looking for their first horse. Billy is an absolute sweetheart in the barn and wants to be your best friend. He loads, clips, ties, and stands for the farrier.

I would keep this horse forever if I were able to, but new job forces sale. Motivated seller but good home an absolute must. Located in Birmingham, AL.
