Prelim gelding

Awesome YR or adult gelding! 9 yo, 16.1hh, bay. Joey is incredibly well bred by Graf Grannus (Grannus) with a double cross to Calypso II (Cor De La Bryere)! Astute event breeders will recognize these as extremely successful bloodlines thru the 5 star level.

Joey has a great record (currently qualified for the AEC’s at prelim), having been impressively produced by a junior thru to the prelim level. His junior rider did an amazing job teaching him the ins and outs of the sport, he is terrific in all 3 phases. He has an extremely good work ethic, very nice paces and really good, clean jump. On the ground he’s an absolute pleasure with perfect manners. He’s one of those horses who turns up to work every day with a smile on his face!

Joey is the ideal horse for a rider looking to have fun and learn, he has plenty of scope for intermediate/3 star also. He’s fit and ready for the fall season.

I can’t say enough good things about this horse! Mid 5 figures. He will be actively competing until sold. Please PM or text/call 240 7505737. Genuine inquiries only. Located in Davidsonville, MD.

Autoloads, stands beautifully for the farrier and uncomplicated to manage at the events. Does need drugs to clip, sublingual dormosidan does the trick. Located in Illinois.

10 Year Old, 15.1 Hand, Registered Quarterhorse $8,500

10 yo, 15.1 hand, registered Quarter horse currently schooling/competing Novice level eventing. I have had the pleasure of owning/training this horse for seven years. We started our eventing career/training just 3 years ago and have progressed well. Ruger is a super affectionate horse who loves people. He has competed in Eventing through Novice level. In addition, he has excellent dressage having competed in Training and 1st Level. He is a forward ride and is brave and honest in stadium jumping. On cross country he needs to school new jumps a few times to gain his confidence so would be best suited for a confident rider. Ruger is located in Troup Texas (just south of Tyler Texas). Low maintenance/no shoes.

Stunning, Quality, Competitive Young Mare–Winner at First Preliminary

Gran Corazon BF is an 8 year old 16.2hh registered KWPN mare — beautifully bred to event by KWPN stallion Richard, out of a full TB mare. She is sound, fit and ready to be tried: equally happy to be ridden by amateurs, professionals or juniors. She is offered for sale due to no fault of her own, and had a clean vetting with radiographs just over a year ago. She recently won her first Preliminary event and has an extremely competitive record at the Modified and Training levels over the past 12 months, when she began her eventing career. She is kind, willing, and forgiving with an incredible work ethic — she is a mare who carries all the best qualities and even if you aren’t a mare fan, she would be the one to convince you otherwise! This is a very special horse who is really coming into her own this summer — she’s one that could continue on up the levels or happily take a competitive junior, young rider, or amateur around as well. She’s shown at A shows though 1.15m and ready to do more, could easily continue on that path as well. We are all big fans of this wonderful mare and an excellent home is a must. Located in central Vermont, please call/text Kylie at (802) 369-4204 or email at [email protected].
