Four Your Marq – Sweet Quiet Gelding

Four Your Marq is a 16 yr old 16hh Off the Track Thoroughbred gelding. He has competed successfully thru Novice as an eventer and is comfortable jumping 2’9”. Marq is the perfect horse for an amateur adult or teen looking to a consistently quiet ride. He would make a great hunt horse, hunter/jumper, low level eventer or pleasure horse. Marq hacks out alone on the buckle and makes a great babysitter for younger horses. He goes off the farm alone multiple times a month and is predictably quiet and well behaved. Loads, clips and is sound. Marq is a quiet sweet boy that deserves a fabulous home. Located in South Carolina.

Talented Young Event Horse Ready To Climb the Levels

Quinlan ‘Quinn’ is a well built, 16.2h, 2013 TB gelding. Quinn recently breezed through his first Novice and is ready to quickly move up the levels with an ambitious rider.

Quinn is currently schooling training level questions without batting an eye. He will easily go on to Prelim, and with the right rider amd continued training has the guts and heart to make an Advanced horse. Alternatively, he would be equally happy sticking to the lower levels and allowing his rider to have a blast around a BN/N track. So long as he gets to run around some kind of course and fed carrots after he will be a happy horse.

Quinn goes all three phases in a French link snaffle, has three quality gaits with a naturally balanced gallop, and can turn on a dime. He is a forward, but manageable ride cross country. Extremely, extremely honest and will magically grow a 5th leg to get you to the other side of a fence if you miss. He is very catty and absolutely the horse you want to be on in a sticky spot.

Priced in the low 5 figures. Located in SE Pennsylvania. Please PM with any questions. Video available upon request. Located in Pennsylvania.

First Flight Foxhunter and Event Prospect

Solemn Tribute 16.1 2012 TB G by Medaglia d’Oro out of Loving Vindication (Vindication)

This horse is not limited to just hunting. He is very well behaved on his own and in company. “Panda” trains and hunts in a snaffle. He has no vices and has had no soundness issues. Located in Unionville, PA.

Bug (USEA name Reckless Abandon) is a 2013 TB mare who has competed to training level with no XC penalties and hardly has a rail. She is a forward ride but not hot. Bug is as honest and forgiving as they come and always tries her hardest. She knows her job and would be a great confidence building partner for a YR! Located in Cochranville, PA, her price is $20,000 NEGOTIABLE.

“Din” Talented and Competitive OTTB

2008 16h OTTB gelding. Just moved up to training after only doing one novice starter (which he won on a 28) and MCTA dressage and show jump (didn’t run XC because of the rain). Finished with just a bit of speed faults because i was having too much fun and wasn’t paying attention. The most easy and balanced gallop you could ask for. Definitely has prelim/2* in him, and i don’t think it will take very long to get him there. Low milage but good miles. Took his owner’s daughter thru pony club as a 4yo straight off the track, and then did some fox hunting with his owner. He’s much more interested in competing and LOVES the show grounds. Easy to ride, super consistent on the flat and basically point and shoot at jumps. You just need a strong leg because he will jump you out of the tack! Perfect manners on the ground, stands, loads on his own, loves being groomed. Good to hack. He is in 4 shoes right now for studs but does just as well in 2. Amazing feet. Knows how to ride off a neck rope and does tricks! Just a super cool all around type of dude. Contact for video. Located in Maryland.

Sweet, easy mare to have fun with!

Leeloo is a 8 yo 16h bay thoroughbred mare searching for her next rider. Leeloo is chill, not marish, and loves to jump, she did a few local beg novice shows in 2018 and just did her first Novice in June 2019. She will happily lope around and jump from whatever distance she gets to, or you can put her together and really ride to a distance and get a lovely jump. Leeloo raced under leeleegoteven (stevengoteven), then did RRP as a polo pony, polo wasn’t really her thing but jumping is her favorite. At shows she is super chill with no worries whether alone or in groups, she can hang out for hours then go do her thing. She is nice on the flat and knows her basic lateral movements with no fuss. She can be sensitive off the leg and would not be suited for a true beginner, however she would be great for an adult amateur or older kid working with a trainer. Front shoes only, barefoot behind. She does crib, but is controlled with a collar and regular work. Located in Kentucky.
