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.

Vickey

Found a new girl that may need some help.
Black, 5 yr old, 15 hand, TB mare. She is about 3 hours from here. Her current owners are giving her away because they don't have time to actually have people come an dlook at her. I have seen pictures and videos. She is well broke for an experienced rider. Has the basics in dressage and is jumping 2'3" courses. Hasn't been shown. Very sweet mare.
The reason she is being given away is because she is too short. Her owners breed/train/sell horses that are in the $50,000-$80,000 range. All of their horses that they keep to train are over 17 hands. If they don't find her a home in the next few weeks she will be going to auction.
She sounds fun... she would be a great project to get now and start working with and then find her a good home this summer.

Fun! Are you going to go take a look at her?

I wish I lived closer, so I could take a look. 15 hands is as tall as my tallest Arab, so it seems plenty tall to me.

Besides being too far away, I have no more room for another horse. If I did, I'd have horses "coming out of my ears" since there are lots of potential rescues around here.

Sounds as if she might make a nice junior horse for someone.
