Bandit is a 17 yo bay thoroughbred gelding standing at 16.2 hands. Is trained in both western and English disciplines, however he will need some time getting back into the swing of things and shaking the rust off! In general, he is a very sweet boy, but can sometimes get a little nervous, so a confident rider would suit him best. No lameness or sounds issues, despite his age he has the energy of a 10 yo. Very good boy, always willing to please! Free to a good home. My number is 719-322-6370 and email is firstname.lastname@example.org , however I respond to texts and calls much quicker! Thank you!
Sweetpea - 10 year old mare. Located in Ridgway, Colorado. Very smart, though not yet trained to ride. Needs some diet management. She was originally rescued from a pig farm in Grand Junction where she was kept in a small, dirty pen with pigs nibbling on her feet. I've had her for 5 years now, as a companion horse for our two older horses. She loads well and stands still for vet and farrier. In the round pen she is extremely attentive and has a strong desire to please. She let's me halter her easily now, though it may take a little work for a new person. She responds best to slow, and gentle, as that is all I have ever given her.
Our older horses are nearing the end of their days now, and the property where they are all kept is looking to be sold. We have also run into issues around feeding time...Naturally, as a pony, Sweetpea will eat anything very quickly. She will eat a good portion of the older horses' food. And, our situation does not allow for easy separation during feeding time. She has had one episode of laminitis when I was away for a few months in the winter and she was being feed alfalfa hay. Just one front foot was affected, and she recovered quickly when put back on a grass hay diet. She cannot handle being turned out on lush green pasture.
Please contact Meagan Ketterlin 970-318-0441 for more information about Sweetpea.
Meet Bingo - He is healthy and a fun horse to ride and has a fun personality. He does need a person who is patient and kind because he is a sensitive boy.
He has a navicular cyst in one foot and has received two rounds of Osphos to harden his bones. He is great for trail rides and light arena work, and would
potentially make a great therapy horse. Contact Ellen for more information.
Moqui needs a home where he can receive attention and love. With some groundwork and a few rides again from an experienced rider, he could be used for some therapy and makes a good companion horse. Contact Ginny Harrington for more information
Cowgirl is a sweet little grade mare in need of a new home! Contact Angela 970-372-8814 for more info!
Bryan - A dude horse in his mid-20, an appendix, energetic, handsome guy. To stiff for riding, just needs to be a backyard horse. Contact Gennie at 520-343-1677 or Academy Riding Stables 719-633-5667.
Midnight is about 12 to 13 years old. Current owners have had him for 2 years now. (Picture is from 2 years ago.) He had a stroke in September 2017 and can no longer do the work of a dude horse. Owner would love see him go to a good home and be a good companion. He is with our herd up in Walden, CO. He would need to be picked up from there.

Looking for a home for my 14-year-old Hanoverian gelding. My reason for sale is that I recently moved to Atlanta, Ga for a job and Dante is still in Steamboat Springs, CO. I wish I could move him but I do not have the funds.
For a little background, Dante was imported from Grasberg, Germany in 2008. He comes from the sire Davignon and Dam Marina. Unfortunately, Dante experienced a suspensory injury in 2013 and is now retired.
That being said, Dante would be perfect for someone who wants a smooth horse to walk around or trail ride. His ground manners are perfect and he loves to please his rider. Dante would also be a great pasture mate as he gets along with all horses.
For Sale for $3500, please contact Julia at email@example.com
