Cass is the mid level packer everybody is looking for. He’s strikingly handsome, quiet, honest, and has perfect form every jump. Cass has been produced exclusively by a junior rider through training level, and has a very extensive show record. He is competing successfully at training and is qualified for the AECs at training (the one stop at training on his record was a clerical error that we could not get resolved). Cass has qualified for the AECs for the past four years. He has schooled all prelim questions and can continue to compete at his current level or can step down and bring a kid back up the levels.
He travels well, is perfectly behaved in new places, is quiet in stall and in turnout, and eats well. No vices, no health concerns, minimal maintenance. Same horse whether he’s ridden consistently or not.
On the flat, he is steady in the bridle and easy to ride. Judges love him, and he scores consistently in the low 30s and high 20s.
He shows perfect knees over every fence and is bold and brave and safe.
Cass is the total package- looks and talent and a great attitude, and he would love to be a confidence builder for a kid or adult. He is adored by his family— they want the absolute best home for him and are in no rush to sell. Only offered as his rider has a young horse and doesn’t have time for two.

Kevin Presto might be the nicest all around pony I’ve had for years. He’s the full package:
Handsome, easy keeper, perfect on the ground, no spook, brave over fences, gets along with other horses.
Kevin Presto is such an incredible pony; he has three wonderful gaits with an amazing, dreamy canter. It’s easy to sit and collect and I can feel the pirouette living in there.
While I think this guy could do some lovely upper level dressage with time and training, he loves to jump and is the type who really enjoys diversity in his daily schedule. He’s perfect for trail rides, brave and athletic over fences, and loves to have adventures. He will stand tied all day or wait patiently while I sit on him and coach. He’s the perfect combination of athletic and talented, but not hot. He is too smart and easy to train to be suitable for absolute beginners.
He’s easy on the bit and schooling first level dressage. Coursing 3’ and ready to show beginner novice, and novice quickly thereafter.
Perfect off property- has done one schooling show with a 73%+ and a clear show jump round.

“Gus” is the ultimate lower level dressage horse- he’s super safe, really straightforward, incredibly sweet, and really quite fancy and comfortable. I’m honestly totally in love with this horse and I wish I had a buyer for him in my barn- I never want him to leave! He’s easy in every way: great ground manners, FUN to ride and nicely responsive without being sensitive, gets along with buddies, lives outside, eats well and is an easy keeper, great feet… I could go on and on.
Gus has a USDF record at training level from a while ago (scores to 69% with an AA), and has been eventing with his current owner for several years (dressage scores down to 22.5). He seems happier being a dressage horse and he loves to trail ride (on the buckle, marches through water, could sip a beer in one hand if you so chose…). He knows everything through Second Level and is comfortable and so fun to ride.
Somebody amazing needs to make this sweet boy their best friend- I adore him and want to see somebody appreciate him.
