Horses for Sale

Throughout the year we go through our horse roster and identify horses that aren’t the best fit for our herd. There are various reasons that we might be trying to find a new home for one of our horses. Some need a one person home, rather than having new riders each week. Some horses aren’t physically able to hold up to the hard riding we do here, and we would rather find them a home where the riding style and frequency will suit them better. Some need a more experienced rider, and we don’t consistently have riders to ride that type of a horse. Some just need to have a retirement home as they’ve worked hard for us, but now need more sunshine and a cabana lifestyle.

If you are looking for a great horse, check back here frequently as we’ll keep this page updated as we have horses available for sale.

Reba

Reba (AQHA “Approaching Daylight”) is a beautiful 2012 mare. Out of Daylight Sun and by Paddys Approach this sorrel mare would be great for a one-owner home with an experienced rider who has a farrier who can stay on top of her foot care as she needs frequent trimming to keep her feet balanced. $1,000

Pistol

**SALE PENDING** Pistol (AQHA “VVR LuckyWithAPistol”) is a 2013 ranch-bred mare out of Lucky Charm Dunegan and by Gunshy Gangster. This mare has a solid start under saddle and is perfect for someone looking for a project, as she can be unpredictable to ride. $800

Tony

Tony is a 1998 Quarter Horse/Missouri Fox Trotter mix breed gelding. He moves like a gaited horse and after some work would be great for an intermediate rider. He’s quiet to ride, but can be reactive on the ground, so needs some good ground handling training. $1,000

Leo

Leo (AQHA “Leo Lucky Charm” ) is a 16 year old sorrel gelding. The reason we are selling him is he is a little too “hot” and and has tried to unload riders. We think he’d do better in an individual home working cattle or given a high energy job rather than in a dude ranch setting. He’s a sweet horse on the ground, ties, good for farrier. $800

Millie

Millie is a 9 yr old Bay Mare. She is a super handy horse, very responsive, sweet, and smart mare. Good for farrier, great arena ride, broke to a rope, and has a lot of go. Dude ranch life is not for her, she needs a consistent rider and job that will utilize her high energy and put her mind to work. Can go English or western. Needs more experience on the trails. She has put riders in a dangerous situation while at the ranch, so she needs some training and a very confident and experienced rider. $1,500

Breeding Program

Vista Verde began breeding horses in 2009. Our objective is to produce versatile, sound minded, people-loving horses that are also really good looking and pretty! So far, we are right on track. Our foals come from championship bloodlines in both the reining and cow competition worlds. Even our horses are no less than 4 diamond quality!

Anyone who is a fan of studying pedigrees knows it’s the ladies who make it all happen. As you’ll see in the list below, our broodmares come from pretty great bloodlines and make wonderful crosses with our stallion. Here are some of our main gals.

Each year we’ll produce anywhere from 4-6 foals. The goal is to raise them, train them, and move them into our riding strong. Although we keep most of them to work into our herd, we do sell some as show prospects to support our program. Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing one of our foals or young horses.
