Polka Dot Ponies

This will most likely be just a collection of my ramblings. I ride and train horses, so there is bound to be a lot of horse stuff. But I also just like to vent and this seems the perfect place.

Missy Ad.

Missy is a beautiful black 7 yr old, 14.3 h, registered quarter horse mare. Do to time constraints and other horses she has been left out in the pasture for the past several years. I started her under saddle early this spring and she is doing very well. She is a very pretty mover with a soft, floaty trot with flat knees. She can slow down and shorten up for western but really prefers to stride out for english. This little mare can JUMP! Cleared 3'6" easily when she was free lunged in the arena. She has been started on ground poles and really enjoys it. Seems like she would do well in dressage as well. She loves attention. She is calm and quiet on trail rides. Good for the vet/farrier/baths, working on clippers. Loads well. Her coat is a bit faded in the pictures- since no one was planning to show her she has been out in the pasture during the day and the sun has faded her from a jet black to more of a mahogany. She will be in training until sold and her price will go up with training. We are planning to haul her to an open show this weekend just to get her out to see everything. E-mail for more information or pictures! $1800 OBO- good home is a must!!

What do you think? Anyone want her??

She's beautiful, but I can't afford a horse right now.

Hate to pick nits, but grammar/spelling mistakes in an ad can put people off:

"Due to time constraints..."

"English" should always be capitalized, "western" usual isn't when referring to the style of riding.

Good luck finding her the right home. She looks like a really nice horse.

The ad looks great. (AA's comments noted.)

I guess I never replied to your post about the little indoor. Before you go to too much expense, can you try working a horse under the existing roof to see how it goes. If it's only 30' wide, that is kind of small. You would be pretty limited. I do think a lunge line is about 15' so that would be all the room you'd have.

Otherwise, I think it is a great idea. I would love to have an indoor myself, even if it was small.

Cute horse. The market is so bad right now. Try to put her ad on all the free classifieds for horses online. There's a billion of them! Good luck and keep trying!
