Definitely a people loving pony! Ties, clips, loads and is easy to work with on the ground. He is an easy keeper and great in a stall or pasture.

Fabulous Patient Mare – Prelim Experience – Training Packer

GonnaGetMarried (aka: Luna) is a 15 year old TB Mare approximately 16.1 hands. With extensive travel and competition experience, Luna is definitely a been there/done that personality. She has been very successful through the preliminary level, and would be suitable for any sort of competition (eventing/dressage/jumpers) or simply for a pleasure riding horse.

She is calm, trustworthy, sensible and would be an excellent teacher for a confident rider looking to move up the levels or attain new skills. She is a very nice mover on the flat, responsive to aids and an unusually patient, hard worker for a mare. She is also a brave, bold jumper, and just an overall fun partner that you can count on to show up and preform. Whether you are interested in taking a long walk down the road bareback, or traveling to shows to be competitive, she is flexible and reliable.

Well behaved for all the usual – vet, farrier, clipping/bathing. She also self loads onto any trailer and travels well. Not generally prone to herd bound behavior, she works equally well in company or by herself. Serious inquiries only please. Excellent home with references will be required. Located in New York.

Imported Preliminary Packer

Looking for a NAJYRC horse or Preliminary packer? You’ve found him! Kingslayer is a 2009 ISH (TB x ISH x Dutch WB) 16.1 hand gelding. An experienced Prelim and CCI* packer, “Guy” is looking for his next rider to take up the levels. Three expressive, adjustable gaits, a great gallop, and a sense of humor make Guy a super partner for an amateur or young rider.

He is very well schooled on the flat and consistently scores in the low 30s in dressage. He is sensitive, so would work best with a quiet rider. He is an excellent cross-country horse – willing, brave, and easily makes time with his long stride. He is very careful in show jumping with zero stop or spook, and has tons of scope. Guy is extremely sound and requires no maintenance.

Guy was imported by Carol Gee (of Fernhill) and Exmoor Eventing in 2015. In Ireland, he was started by Sarah Ennis and competed through the preliminary level with no cross-country faults. He is by Loughehoe Guy out of a Nautilus mare, with bloodlines back to Clover Hill.

Guy is sound, fit, and ready to compete. He is suitable for a young rider, professional, or amateur rider. He could bring a less experienced rider up the levels or continue moving up with a pro. If not sold, he will be moving up to intermediate this spring season. He is currently located in Ocala, FL, and will be in MA starting April 1st. Sadly for sale due to finances.
