6 yr old 17 hand Thoroughbred Gelding – upper level potential
Archie (JC name Arch of Honor) is a 6 year old dark bay TB gelding and is a MASSIVE 17 hands. Last raced 10/7/2019 so is RRP Makeover eligible. He has had some cross training while racing and is started over jumps and has been on a few trail rides etc, though still considered green. Tons of ability and potential and very sound – no issues racing but not real competitive in it anymore and I think he would rather do something else.
The good: He is fun to be around with a quirky personality. Gorgeous. Sound. NOT a hot horse to ride, pretty mellow. Good feet. Natural at jumping.
The bad: He is a controlled cribber with a collar. He is annoying, though NOT dangerous for the farrier.
This is a very talented horse that could go right up the levels with just a little time put into his dressage and some practice jumping – he is a natural at jumping and enjoys it. Located in Pennsylvania.

Lovely Dressage horse ready to Event!
Looking Good FLF is a 6 year old 16.1 hand American Warmblood gelding. He has shown USDF recognized First level with scores as high as 68%. Lots of unrecognized horse show experience, LG is a perfect gentlemen to trailer/braid/ etc and is sound barefoot. He has been XC schooling several times, and is fine with drops/ditches/water. Jumping bigger every week, LG is ready to go eventing. He hacks alone or in company. Would be well suited to an ambitious amateur or teen looking to have fun and come home in the ribbons. Located in Maryland.

Mild and tall gelding
Marvelous Reward is a 16.3 hand 2015 unraced Thoroughbred dark bay gelding. Marvin has the mind of an aged draft horse in a 4 year old TB body. We have never sat on a more sensible 4 year old. He has been showing at starter trials (EL and BN levels) and jumper shows since March and has acted like a schoolmaster at them since day one. He often scores in the 20s in dressage and always jumps a clean cross country. He is absolutely honest and brave. Great indoors or out, loves hacking around. Great for toddlers to be around and be led around on. He is extremely quiet and sensible, despite his young age, and would be suitable for an adult amateur to ride. I feel Marvin would excel as a foxhunter but can easily continue showing in all rings as he is so willing and mild (and a really great XC horse!). Trailers perfectly, stands for everything, super easy to have around, anyone can handle. He is sound and healthy. He is very personable and has no vices. $12,500. Located in Augusta, WV, 28 miles west of Winchester, VA. 309-376-2144. **If you email and don’t get a reply in 12 hours please call/text**

Started over small fences, schooling ditches, banks, brush, logs, etc. Trailers and stands tied to the trailer easily.
