MIDNIGHT

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.

DANTE

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 greatrex.julia@gmail.com
