Lease to Own Gelding

      Comments Off on Lease to Own Gelding

For Lease with option to Buy 11 year old WB cross gelding.

I prefer to lease this horse out but I am not riding him enough for him to live up to his potential.   A lease could be what you are looking for. 

This is a big boned horse that is easy to handle and will take care of a not-so-great rider but then will be a fun horse for a more advanced rider.  He has shown well at training and started some first level but I got distracted/busy. He is about 16.1-16.2 hands, has a dun gene but is sort of half dun half chestnut.  HE HAS competed recognized BN teenagers on him in dressage, 4H, hunters, jumpers, eventing. He needs to get FIT. UTD shots, floating, goes barefoot, very easy keeper.

If leaser fell in love with him and it was a great match, I would sell him for his sake.  But if I am ‘stuck’ with him when he gets old as a trail horse, I am happy with that!

Multi-talented Pony for sale

Very talented eventing or dressage pony!

Appaloosa 13.2 pony gelding, LOTS of cadence…Very CUTE – Pictures are not close to showing how unique and cute this pony is!  Only 6 years to start serious showing but has shown twice to test character and he is the same at a show as at home. At the shows, he competed in Intro level dressage, in hand with a 10 year old handler, and in costume with an 8 year old. Small adults should look at him too though!

VERY good natured even if rider doesn’t deserve it. Beginner kids can trail ride this pony. He goes on the bit easily, naturally built round and works through the back. Never hinted at bucking, rearing, kicking – its not his nature. $3000 obo

This horse is for the ARABIAN lover

Dressage Grey Purebred Arabian Mare. This mare is 8 years old and 14.2 hands. She is talented for dressage and easy to get into contact.  She is green but all you have to do is ride her trot and put her together.

She canters both leads and reaches through her back but she needs canter building development. She naturally works through. She will start showing at schooling shows this fall. (She has had one foal and had a tail issue so her tail is growing back). UTD shots, coggins and floating. Goes barefoot, very easy keeper. $2500.

July Schooling Show

      Comments Off on July Schooling Show

There were so many entries for the schooling show at Jenni Hogan’s Double H Farm that they spilled over into Sunday morning, making it CTDA’s first 2 day schooling show!! Saturday’s rides went from 7:00 to about 5:00 p.m. and Judge Evie Tumlin graciously agreed to continue judging Sunday morning to get everyone in. There were many levels represented – Greenie Weenie up to 3rd Level and also included USEA Beginner Novice, Western Dressage and Walking Horse Dressage. The day was hot but the shade trees made it comfortable for horses and riders. Jenni and her family, as always, were wonderful hosts and everyone appreciated the relaxed and supportive atmosphere.

Volunteers on Saturday were Cathy Holmes, Shelley Fugitt, Amber and Haley Preston and Penny Lindsley. Jenni and schooling show coordinator, Sherry Pride, multitasked on Sunday and performed roles of rider, scribe, ring steward and runner.

New this year is the $15 cash award for the high point CTDA members in each of the 4 divisions (13 and under, Junior/Young Rider, Adult Amateur, Open). Winners from this show, held July 20-21, were:

Amateur – Julia Lankes on Rhinestone Cowboy 68.214 in Training 2
