Stormy

$2000.00

Stormy is a 6 year old buckskin Quarter Horse gelding (no papers). He stands at 14.2hh and is lightly started under saddle, W/T/C, and will need further training. Very quiet, easy to work with, willing, in-your-pocket type personality. He is used to 24/7 turnout, barefoot, and just needs hay - a very easy keeper. He has great ground manners, trailers, ties, is up to date on everything and is good for the farrier. Will make a super trail horse, show pony, etc. - just needs more hours. A great mount for a rider looking to work with a smart and willing young horse.

Congratulations to Dianne on her purchase of Stormy!

Nikita

$3500.00

Nikita is an 11 year old, 14.3hh grade Paint mare. She is black with sabino markings. Nikita has been one of our school/competition horses for 7 years for intermediate riders and up. She's a lovely mare who has schooled up to 2'9", but does best at 2'6". She is a take-you-around-the-course type, lands her leads, has done many shows (mostly in the hunter ring), has great form over fences, carries herself well on the flat, and is pretty much a push-button with the right rider. She is well schooled and requires a soft and gentle rider as she is sensitive to the aids. She is sound and healthy, though she does have a minor dust allergy - but as long as she doesn't get into any dusty hay you'll never see it. Up to date on everything, trailers well, clips, ties, etc. Great on the trails with other horses. She gets worried on her own so is not a horse that can be kept by herself. This girl will make a good step up for someone who is coming off a pony but is not ready yet for a big horse.

Honey

$700.00

Honey is a 6 year old Mini/Welsh pony mare who stands at about 9.1 or 9.2hh. She has been ridden bareback and started in harness, but not been hooked to a cart.

Congrats to Paula Hart on her purchase of our precious little angel Honey - that one was a hard one to let go! We know you'll love her as much as we have!

$1800.00

Norman is a 16.1hh, 8 year old Thoroughbred gelding; a very handsome boy with tons of personality. He's an in your pocket type, loves to be a goofball, easy keeper, up to date on everything, good with vet and farrier, loads, clips etc. Suitable for intermediate riders and up as a flat mount. He is trained over fences, but is more suited to a flat career. Would make a great schoolie or mount for a mature rider, or someone looking for a pleasure mount. He's healthy and sound, sensible, and loving, loves attention, is good to hack and loves trail rides. Loving home a must.

Congrats Tracey Breen on her purchase of Norman - it has been her dream to own her very own Thoroughbred, and we are so lucky to have been able to help her in making that dream come true!

Spartan

$5000.00

Spartan (Family Alliance) is a stunning 9 year old, 16.1hh bay gelding. Spartan is an OTTB that has had reschooling for the hunter/jumper/eventing ring. He has been in many clinics in hunter/dressage as well as eventing/cross country and has some show experience.

This gelding has personality plus and is an in-your-pocket puppy dog. He is great with the vet and farrier, loads, bathes, clips pretty well (he's alittle touchy around his ears), ties, etc. Spartan has a super presence and is a nice solid build. I am told he's got superb eventing bloodlines. He is going well under saddle, in a frame at all gaits, but does need a strong rider and will need some work balancing at the canter. He has his changes, has jumped up to 2'6" thus far, and is very brave over fences. He moves beautifully and well enough that he could also excel in the dressage ring. He's a very versatile boy.

Congrats to Amanda Glenn of Alberta on her purchase of Spartan!

Santana & Moose

$5000.00

Crimson Santana is our 1997 bay tobiano Paint stallion. Santana is a fantastic pony hunter sire; he stands a solid 14.2hh and has all the great qualities one should look for in a stallion. Santana's main discipline is Hunter which he absolutely loves and excels at. He spent his first Hunter over fences season on the Nova Scotia Hunter Jumper Association Circuit receiving honours for ranking second in the province during that first exciting season. Santana is not only one of our resident Foals, but is also used in our school program for some of our intermediate and advanced riders, and to teach riders how to longe a horse. He has also had some training at liberty. He not only excels as a sire and in the show ring, but he is also a fantastic teacher.

Mighty Moose is a 2001 chestnut Miniature stallion. He stands 38" tall and is the sweetest, most adorable (yet manly) man in the barn. He is best friends with our Paint stallion Santana and is actually the boss. He is not registered as his dam was not a registered Mini, but he's got super conformation, fantastic hooves, great personality and beautiful movement, and he was super easy to train as he is extremely intelligent.

Congrats to Kailin Howard on her purchase of Santana and Moose!

Lady

$600.00

Meet Lady, a 15 year old Standardbred mare who stands a solid 15.2hh. She was used for the past four years as a trail mount. Very easy keeper, great ground manners, great under saddle; usually goes out on the trails in just a rope halter, and has also had some training in the ring. Nice trot and canter with very little pacing. She can be a little testy with strange horses, but other than that is a wonderful mount that loves the trails and enjoys every bit of her time out. Up to date on everything, great with vet and farrier. This gal would make a super husband horse and trail buddy for anyone. Looking for a loving forever home.

Congrats to Meggie Mooring, we hope you enjoy her as much as we did! Back to top

Woody

$2500.00

Woody is a 5 year old, 17hh, black Clydesdale gelding. He would make the perfect trail partner for someone looking for a quiet (pretty much bombproof already) young buddy. Woody has had about 1 month of training under saddle, loves to please, and, although he is a bit on the lazy side, once he gets going he's got three beautiful gaits on him. This is one of the gentlest giants I've ever had the pleasure of working with.

Congratulations to Woody's new owner, Karla Eisener Gaetz! Back to top

Toffee

$2000.00

Toffee, registered as Twistin' Junior Toffee, is a 6 year old breeding stock Paint gelding who stands just over 15hh. Lovely mover, superb conformation, loads of potential, super jump. I'm told he has superb reining bloodlines.

Trained under english tack, competed in the x-rail and 2' Hunters last season always placing very well. Has jumped courses up to 2'3". Great to hack out as well.

Would make a nice horse for an experienced rider that is capable of finishing his training. He's wonderful if he's ridden consistantly but has had quite a break as we have too many horses and he's been left on the back burner, which is reflected in his price.

Congrats to Laura and Shelley Porter of Sydney area, Cape Breton on their purchase of Toffee!

Laney

$4000.00

Laney (Dance To The Blues) is a gorgeous registered Thoroughbred mare. Standing at 16hh, she is a nicely put together, sensible mare, is very well mannered on the ground and is great for farrier/vet. She is perfectly healthy and sound; ties, clips, trailers, bathes, etc. She is good to hack out.

Laney is a hot blooded chestnut mare, she will definitley need an experienced rider. She has been well schooled on the flat, goes in a frame, does her changes and is a beautiful ride - extremely athletic. She is very willing to learn but can also be a handful if she is not ridden exactly right, with a light hand. She competed at several hunter/jumper competitions last season and it seems her forte is definitely in the jumper ring where she absolutley excels. Jumps courses up to 2'6" but is ready to move to the next level with the right rider.

Congrats to Jill Doll from Ontario on her purchase of Laney - we wish you many wonderful years together!
