For Sale Chimera (Chai) is a 5 year old, 16.1hh thoroughbred mare by Shackleford. Chai is a leggy, lanky type with three good gaits and a lovely temperament. Chai was lightly raced with only two starts, and retired sound with no limitations in the fall of 2020. She has had a solid, well rounded restart and shown potential to excel in a number of directions. Chai is currently going nicely on the flat w/t/c with a good understanding of basic lateral work and an easy lead change. She’s been lightly started over small fences in the arena and schooled small stuff out in the field including banks, ditches, and water. She’s done quite a bit of trail riding and is happy going out alone or in company. Chai is a sensible girl, but more of a sensitive type and still green, so would be best suited for an experienced and confident rider. She could easily be brought along by a good riding junior or AA working with a trainer or could gain more milage with a pro. On the ground she is very sweet and easy to work around. She bathes, clips, loads easily, stands tied/cross tied while grooming and tacking up, and is good for the vet and farrier. Chai has no health/soundness issues or limitations. She’s happy to live in or out and gets along well with everyone in turnout.
Priced at $8000, subject to change.

For Lease or Sale W.P. Traveling Lane (Laney) is an 8 year old, 14.1h registered spotted haflinger mare. Laney is a true all around type with a solid base and potential to continue on in many directions. She’s a fabulous trail horse, happy to march along all day and totally comfortable going out on her own or with a group. She’s very sure footed and confident on varied terrain and has plenty of stamina for longer rides. Laney also loves to jump, and is bold and honest in the arena and out in the field. She’s currently jumping around 2’3”-2’6” courses in the arena with room to move up and BN fences out in the field. She’s schooled banks, ditches, and water all of which she was brave about from the get go. As long as her rider is steering she’s willing to jump whatever’s in front of her and does not get offended by the rider making a mistake. Flatwork is definitely not her first choice of an activity, but she is willing to learn and is making steady progress. She has shown glimpses of how cute she’ll be when things come together and has plenty of potential to improve with continued work. She is very solid and safe feeling for an experienced rider, but forward thinking and still green, so not suitable as a children’s pony or for a timid, novice rider. Laney is very sweet and generally easy to work around on the ground. She’ll stand cross tied all day for grooming, tacking up, and bathes. She’s great to clip, loads easily, and is good for the vet. She can be nervous with the farrier handling her hind feet, but is improving. Laney takes a bit to warm up to new people, but once she knows you she loves attention and is a very personable, kind pony. She’s an extremely easy keeper and has always been healthy and sound. She’s good in a stall or happy to live out and gets along well with anyone in turnout. For someone looking for a fun, bomb around type or serious trail horse this is your girl. We also think she’d make a nice event pony with some continued work on the flat or would probably LOVE fox hunting. Good home with the right match is essential and we would be happy to do a lease or lease with option to purchase to the right program.
Priced at $7000, lease option considered to the right situation.
For Sale Ninety Miles South (Miles) is a 5 year old, 16hh big bodied thoroughbred gelding. He was race trained but unraced due to being slow and has spent the last couple years hanging out in the field at his breeders farm until coming to us to be restarted this spring. Miles is now in a consistent program and coming along nicely. He’s got three good gaits and a sensible, willing attitude. He’s currently going w/t/c on the flat, has been introduced to some small fences in the arena and field. He’s been out trail riding several times with a group and is very quiet and relaxed out and about. He’s green, but sensible with a willing attitude and good work ethic. Miles is very sweet and easy to work around in the barn. He stands nicely on the cross ties for grooming and tacking up, bathes, and loads easily. He’s currently living out 24/7 with a group of geldings, but is good in the stall. Miles is healthy and sound with clean, straight legs and good feet. He does crib, controlled with a collar. Miles is a short couples, athletic type with a good base and potential to excel in any directions. With his good mind he would be well suited for an amateur/junior, or would be a nice prospect for a pro. As he is still quite green, we’d like him in a good program with a capable rider. He is not suitable for a beginner or novice rider at this time.
Priced at $7500, subject to change.

For Sale Vestermarkens Fashion is an eye catching 4 year old, 17.3hh imported Danish Warmblood gelding. Fashion is by the young stallion First Ampere (Ampere) out of Rocha, by Blue Hors Hertug. Fashion has a solid base under saddle and is not ready to find his person and start competing. Fashion has a fabulous mind under saddle with excellent ride ability and willingness to learn. Despite his massive size Fashion is light with excellent natural balance. He has three comfortable, rhythmic gaits and naturally seeks a steady contact. He’s happy to plod around on a loopy contact quietly or pick him up and send him forward and he is quite an expressive mover with plenty of scope to his gaits. He’s been introduced to laterally work, which comes easily to him and has a clean, natural lead change. In addition to working in the arena Fashion has been trail ridden regularly since being backed and is quiet and comfortable going out on his own or with a group. He’s been ridden with the dog, through the field, in the woods, and down a quiet dirt road. Fashion has also been lightly started over small fences and proven to be brave and willing. He is bred for dressage and absolutely would excel in that direction. We also feel he could make a nice hunter or could even be a very fancy low lower level event horse. In the barn Fashion is sweet and always enjoys being the center of attention. He’s the first to greet you at the gait in the field and is always hanging his head out of the stall looking for attention. He is good on the ground, but like many big, young horses can be pushy and mouthy at times, so will need a handler who is educated and fair, but firm to keep him on the right track and continue teaching him proper manners on the ground. Fashion is healthy and sound for any pursuit. He does have a blemish on his right hind leg from a pasture injury as a young horse, which is purely cosmetic. Fashion does crib, controlled completely with a collar.
For Lease Lil Bevvy Bluebird is a 4 year old, 15.1hh unraced thoroughbred mare by Bellamy Road. She’s a catty, athletic type who would be a blast for a small, good riding AA or junior. Bevvy was never sent to the track or put into race training and has instead spent her time being brought along slowly and correctly. She now has a solid base and is ready to go out and start competing. She’s a good mover with three nice, balanced gaits. She’s very steady on the flat with a nice way of going. Over fences she is bold with naturally good technique and excellent footwork. She’s been jumping around 2’6” courses in the arena and schooling BN fences out in the XC field with plenty of room to move up. Bevvy is a good girl, but young and athletic with a forward thinking way of going, so would be best suited for a confident and capable rider who can keep her in a consistent program. She’s been trail ridden extensively over the last year and is great out on her own or with a group. Bevvy is easy to work around on the ground and a pleasure to have in the barn. She is a relatively easy keeper for a young thoroughbred. She’s lived out most of her life and gets along well with others in turnout, but would also do well in a stall with plenty of daily turnout. Bevvy is healthy and sound with no limitations, vices, or history of health/soundness issues. With the right rider Bevvy could be a competitive event horse or could excel as a jumper. The priority for her lease is to find her a good program with a capable rider.
Additional photos and video will be available soon.
