Toward the end of each season we go through our horse roster and identify horses that aren’t the best fit for our herd. There are various reasons a horse doesn’t work out for our herd. Some horses need a one person home, rather than having different riders each week. Some aren’t physically built to hold up to the hard riding we do here, and we don’t want to hurt them by trying to make it work. Some need a more experienced rider consistently, which is tough as not all of our guests have much riding experience. Some just need to have a retirement home as they’ve worked hard for us, but now need a more quiet life. With that, we have 8 horses we are trying to find homes for this fall.
On Friday and Saturday, October 23 and 24 we will have the horses available to view and try out for any potential buyers. The Brand Inspector will not be available on the day of the sale, so horses may be picked up after they are inspected with purchaser’s information Tuesday, October 27.
Here is the rundown of who is being offered in the sale.
Cisco– 9 yo Dun Gelding, 16h. He is big and well built but needs a job. Cisco is not the best to shoe. Experienced rider. $1,100
Johnny– 17 yo Sorrel Gelding, 15h. He is a nice friendly gelding, any level rider can ride him, but he’s best suited for intermediate to advanced riders. Slight stifle issue, but he’s ok to use for light work. $900
Gus– 9 yo Red Dun Gelding, 15h. Gus is a smart and athletic gelding who needs a job. He’s suited for an intermediate to advanced rider only, and he is great on trails. $900
Kapua– 7 yo Red Roan Mare, 15h. She is a very beautiful and athletic mare, and needs to be put to work. Kapua is good on trails, and she is smart but not always willing so she needs an experienced rider. $1,200
Cali Girl– 5 yo Chestnut Mare, 14h. She is a smart and athletic small mare. Cali will watch a cow and would make a great cow horse or reining prospect. She is great in the arena. Intermediate to advanced rider. $2,200
Riena– 4 yo Bay Mare, 14.2h. Riena would make a nice reining or western pleasure prospect. She has a slight hock issues so she’s not suited for heavy duty use. $2,200
Sparky– 19 Grey Gelding, 14.2h. Sparky is cute and stocky with a lot of go so he needs a strong rider who can contain him. He’s ok on trails but will jump things instead of step over. He’s great in the arena and can go English or western. $800
Arrow– 25 yo Grey Gelding, 16h. Arrow has been one of our great kid horses, but he has asthma and needs a retirement home. He would be great for a little girl that would just want to love on a horse or a pasture buddy. Free to good home.
