Your Dream Preliminary Packer

Are you looking for a horse to take you confidently from BN-Intermediate? Look no further. Busy Bea or “Busy” (2007 Clydesdale/Hanoverian/TB) has experience up to the Intermediate level. She has taken her kid off of a pony, helping her win her first Area Championship at Preliminary, and will soon be helping her complete her first Intermediate. At 15.3 hands, Busy is the perfect manageable size, but still takes up your leg. She is great on the ground, clips, loads, ties to the trailer at horse shows, and is a very easy keeper. She can take a joke in the jumping, and doesn’t bat an eye at a bad distance. If you’re looking for a safe first horse, or something that is just plain old fun to jump around, this is your horse. Pretty, smart, and an absolute blast— Busy is one of a kind. Priced in the mid/upper five figures (reasonable offers considered), and located in Lexington, KY. Contact Alexa Ehlers (940)597-0747 with any questions.

Competitive prelim packer!

Drombane Dynamite is a 7 year old, 16.1 ISH Gelding who has successfully competed through Preliminary with all the scope and talent for more! Dyno was produced by a college student and is offered for sale as she is heading off to pursue higher education. Dyno is bold and honest on xc, fancy and uncomplicated on the flat, and an extremely careful show jumper. He would be incredibly well suited for a young rider/amateur looking for their upper level mount but would also suit a professional to take up the levels. Priced in the mid five figures. Contact Megan for more pictures and videos! Located in Ocala, FL for the winter.
