“Assault” 5 year old AWR Gelding

We can’t say enough nice things about this horse! Bred to succeed,  “Assault” was the First Premium Site Champion at his foal inspection! This 5 year old 16.1 gelding is by an AWR approved son of Puerto D’Azur (BWP) out of a registered Quatogan Du Vieux Chateaux (BWP) mare. He is registered with the American Warmblood Registry.  Assault is a bright chestnut with flashy chrome lending to his stunning presence. He is an easy horse to work with, with a remarkably willing and laid back personality.

Assaultprofile

Assault had an idyllic upbringing, running the hills of his breeder’s farm.  Those of you who prefer to let youngsters mature physically before starting into work-this is the horse for you!  He had just begun ground training when his owner’s health forced her to give up horses. Assault longes, loads, clips, bathes, wears tack and is learning contact with sidereins.  The video clip does not do him justice!


Assault has taken each step in stride- no fuss, and no hint of buck. He is ready to start under saddle and thrive in any direction he is taken.
Priced at $4900 for simple sale, due to owner’s health.


 

Lily-16+h 2002 Hanoverian-TB Mare

Lily is a fun, forward mare with a cuddly and loving personality!  She has a beautiful face, clean legs and great conformation.  In the short time she has been with us, Lily has made progress in basic dressage, exhibited a talent for jumping, and gained a love of trail riding.  We have only brushed the surface of Lily’s abilities and potential!

 

Lily is a granddaughter of the great French distance stallion, Val de l’Orne.  I was told by a pedigree expert that Val de l’Orne’s is “one of the best TB jumping lines in existence, and has been for at least 4 generations of sires.”

Lily was a beloved pleasure horse in her “past life.”  She is free from blemishes or unsoundness.  She stands quietly for the vet and farrier, for clippers, for baths, or just to be loved on in the aisle or stall.  Lily loads and unloads willingly from both a straight and slant-load trailer.  Currently asking $7500, price negotiable to a terrific home.

*Newsflash!!! March 17, 2012* Lily participated in her first foxhunt and was a superstar! She galloped like a dream on the runs, stood on a loose rein at the checks, and kept her wits when hounds and huntsmen ran past.  This mare is so much fun!

*Newsflash!!! May 27, 2012* Lily competed in her first show and captured Grand Champion in a large division!

*Newsflash!!! Nov 4, 2012* Lily stood quietly during the blessing of the hounds at the Opening Meet, then hunted like a champ.  Each time out she gets better and better!

 

Video on the flat and over fences, Mother’s Day 2012:

This video clip shows Lily’s first free jumping school, and first time tackling an in-and-out.  I loved watching her figure things out, experiment with the striding, and learn to use her body in new, more powerful ways.  The geldings watching from the pasture were certainly impressed 😉  She cleared each fence eagerly and effortlessly, promising a great future over fences.

Denya’s Wish – 2003 Reg. TB Mare For Sale

Wish has been off the track for several years, living a life of leisure in our pasture! She does her natural horsemanship groundwork like a champ, and is very light and sensitive to ride. I had initially purchased Wish as a show hunter prospect for her classically correct conformation. She is a very fancy mover!   Wish’s bloodlines, which include greats such as Fappiano and Best Turn, suggest future success in any discipline, or as a fantastic sport horse broodmare.

Wish has no known soundness issues.  She does have an old scar on her hind leg that our vet says should not interfere with future strenuous riding and jumping.

Wish is our “Daddy’s Girl.” My husband is totally in love with her! However, at 6′ tall, he is too big for her. Any home is subject to his approval!  She is not currently in regular work (through owner’s limitations, no fault of her own.) We are currently asking $950.00 to a great home.

**Newsflash**

The stars finally aligned and we got a little impromptu video of Wish!  I joke because this fall it has seemed almost impossible to schedule a video shoot.  Wish is not in anything resembling work- I basically pulled her in from the pasture. I was so proud of how calm and obedient she was.  When you add impulsion her movement really shines, but this day I was going relaxation rather than brilliance.  Mark was still setting up the camera when I got on, so I hopped off at the end and remounted to show how she stands quietly on a loose rein for mounting.  (Note- since I broke my back I wear the back protector every ride- it’s no reflection on my expectations for Wish!)

Jonesway Metallica

Alli is a 1999 registered Clydesdale mare standing 17.1 hands high. In her past life, she’s been a driving horse, a lesson horse, and a very successful broodmare.  Since her arrival at the farm, she has been an integral part of our family!

Alli’s roles have varied through the years.  She has taught lessons to a variety of students ranging from raw beginner on up.  During the  “Snowmageddon” which crippled the Mid-Atlantic, she proved to be the original SUV-Scottish Utility Vehicle, that is!  She broke trails through 3’+ deep snow, carried me along fencelines to repair or free fence from drifts, and pulled sleds of grain (and people!) to distant pastures.

When my husband’s beloved Belgian was injured just before a Medieval Reenactment, Alli stepped in seamlessly as his number one Charger.  He wrote about the experience of their first introduction here , and of flash-training her to the games under pressure here and here .  Alli not only carried Mark to tournament glory-bitless!- but patiently carried several other “horseless” equestrians.

Later that same season, Alli carried Mark on his first taste of riding to foxhounds with the calm steadiness she has become known for.
