Angel Quincy, red roan AQHA gelding foaled August 18, 2003, 15.2 he
Quincy is a trustworthy good using horse that would be a great pick for any job on horseback. He’s formerly from Minnesota where he worked a small ranch on “only” 600 cows. He has been ridden by kids and adults in English and Western tack. Good on trails, has worked in camp and lessons. For additional information please call 413-527-1612.
Hamilton has been leased by a teenaged rider whose riding time is limited by high school so must end her lease. He is a sweet, friendly gentleman of a horse that has good manners in the barn and under tack. He’s got a great start to him, has been working honestly over fences all spring and summer and been trail ridden. He has been trailered to several shows, is as quiet and sane away as he is at home, and does his job with zero prep or lengthy formula to success. He has a fantastic, well balanced canter and is getting solid on lead changes. He gets along with a herd of geldings in turn out and is kid safe to groom, feed or handle. Hamilton is a mild cribber in his stall if he does not wear a cribbing strap, but does not crib while turned out even without the strap. Phone calls for more information to 413-527-1612 please.
Old style QH gelding that is big bodied with a nice handle and good work ethic. He has a really nice handle, will go anywhere where he’s pointed. He loves trail rides, has experience on cattle and is happy to stay in the ring to work. He’s a responsive horse that is ready to go to work.
Bandit is basic transportation. He has not had much ring time, but has lots of experience on outside trails. He is stout to ride and flashy to look at.
Whiskey has been a trail riding pony all his life. He goes where you ask and is not spooky. Solid enough to carry a bigger rider.
“Dale” is an extra well broke gelding that has size, balance and a good head. He is soft in the bridle, has a good one-handed neck rein and really tries to please his rider.
Brody Del Bar AQHA G foaled 5/13/2010. Sweet, attractive horse that rides nicely in the ring or outside. Nice personality and nice gaits.
Vinnie is a very friendly little horse that has been local for a few years. He has done lessons, trails and been to camp. He was a great horse this summer for the advanced kids who found him to be eager, responsive and very comfortable. He has great gaits with a floaty, comfortable canter that can just go all day. He’s easy to ride, not tense and never difficult to stop. He lives in or out happily and is always happy to see people.
Kit Kat is a great sized pony for smaller adults or any sized child. He’s just back from a summer of camp and is ready to go to be a family pony or lesson pony. He was well liked at camp and has a good canter.
Mickey is a pony that we have known, used and respected for several years. He has had several seasons of camp experience, has been a first pony for a young rider and been a steady lesson pony here in our program. Mickey has been to countless horse shows, trail rides and hunter paces, done games and costume classes. He works well with beginner level riders and has a careful, slow, comfortable step that keeps the kids right in the middle of the saddle. Mickey is ready for a new, hopefully one person, home. He deserves to be a pet as he has brought along dozens of our riders that have now outgrown him and are riding younger and greener horse. Though he doesn’t hold up to much jumping, Mickey will last years as a beginner level flatwork pony.
Bishop, sometimes called Billy, is a large pony that, like many of his buddies in this auction, is useful, safe, easy going and just back from a summer of working at a seasonal riding program. He’s a very pretty mover and could go on to be finished as a fancy pony, but we’ve just never told him so he’s still a humble and gentle guy. His next home could be with any level rider and go to horse shows or trail rides. He is soft in the bridle and has been started over fences this summer.
Baldy is a great little horse that we have known for a number of years. He came originally from Montana, has been to summer camp, worked in our IHSA western lessons and shows, had been leased to an amateur rider in our barn then was sold to be a first horse for a 12 YO boy. Though it was not Baldy’s fault, the boy lost interest as kids sometimes do. Baldy is well broke, has very comfortable gaits, is good on trails and in an all around terrific “using” horse. Pretty much anyone that can hold reins will enjoy riding Baldy in the ring and on trails or just enjoy spending time with him as their next barn buddy.
