Talented 2005 16 hand Thoroughbred

Absolute packer in dressage, but he takes a strong rider to jump. He would be wonderful for someone who’s gutsy, but needs to work on their dressage skills. He’s placed in every training event to date and ready to move to prelim. Owner injury forces sale – has been turned out since original injury (May) and is now coming back into work again. (started end of June). He’s a saint on the ground, for the vet, farrier. He’s kid-proof/husband-proof to handle, at shows or at home. hacks out on the buckle and self loads. Located in North Carolina.

Our Champion

“Archie” is a 16.1h 2007 Thoroughbred gelding. He is low mileage for his age, but has already progressed from completing his first novice in June to two training level placings in July. He is best suited for someone looking to continue up the levels, very easy on the flat and has a huge scopey jump. Very sound, easy to shoe, clip, tie, etc. Will be competing in his first prelim in August, price to increase with experience. Located in Florida and Ohio.

Training Packer with Prelim experience

Mandarb aka “Manny” is a lovely 8 year old, 16.2 hand unraced bay Thoroughbred gelding. He is an experienced training level event horse with an outstanding record and recently finished his first preliminary in the top ten!

Manny was bought by his current owner (previous 2* rider now AA) as a 4 y/o as an eventing prospect due to his impressive movement and athleticism. He has been brought along by the same rider for the last four years.

Manny is consistently competitive in dressage, always clear on cross-country, and goes all three phases in a happy mouth snaffle. He is quiet and rhythmical over fences but willing to take any distance the rider chooses. He has been brought along slowly and carefully, skipping no steps, and would be able to pack anyone around training level with potential to move up the levels.

He has no vices, trailers, clips, ties/stands without problems. He hacks out quietly, is used to dogs, and trail rides alone and with company. No veterinary history to declare; has been consistently sound and healthy.

Regretfully selling due financial logistics; important that he goes to a forever home. Located in Massachusetts.
