Connemara super star!

🦄 ☘️ Gentry Irish Clover (Fortrane Stuart CP x Rantis Diamond ISH ). Coming 6 year old 15.3hh imported Irish Sport Horse mare. “Trish” is a beautiful, talented and super forgiving mare that is wise beyond her years! If you’re looking for something with a packer mentality to quickly move you up the levels with confidence, Trish is your ride! She is easy, sweet, and the type of horse every trainer wants in their barn.

Have a grudge against owning a girl? She will change that. This mare is zero drama and with her adorable personality, will make you the center of her whole world! That’s right, she will whinny when she sees you. It’s like owning a little squeaky toy that lights up when you’re around. You can’t say no to that! ❤️

Trish is so good she won her first horse trials in the USA out of a large division! She has competed in Ireland through the Novice level and schools cross country through the Training level! She is brave, scopey, and will jump anything from any distance with very little input needed from her rider. She’s quiet enough to be a hunter, but forward enough to do the jumpers. This horse could do multiple jobs for you!

Here is another unicorn. These horses don’t come by very often! Trish is UTD on everything and has zero vices. This is the first horse I’ve had in my barn that I can’t give you a single bad thing to say about her…and we have some nice horses! Trish can be ridden every day or pulled out of her stall with a week off and is the same horse. She walks off the trailer at a show as the same horse you put on, easy and quiet.

Serious inquiries only. Yes, seriously…please. Budget suits the quality of horse. Priced in the mid-five figures. Located at Gentry Sport Horses in Spring City, PA.

Elegant, fearless, talent for upper levels

Star Alert is a six year old 16.3 unraced TB mare who screams upper level potential! She has lovely gaits and is schooling Training stadium and cross country with scope to spare. She is brave, catty, and smart. She will jump anything you point her at and is very adjustable to the fences. She is best suited for a confident rider as she is a forward, sensitive type, but she is kind and willing with no bad habits and is a joy to work with. She just ran Loch Moy’s Derby Cross at Beginner Novice, went clear without looking at a single obstacle, and was unphased by the atmosphere and chaos. No vices, no maintenance, loves her job. She has a single screw in her right fetlock, but multiple vets have said it should have no effect on her future soundness or potential (x-ray available to serious buyers).
