Drummer Boy

16+ hand 2007 Pinto Friesian/Percheron.  “Spotty” is a striking black and white paint with rare ink spot markings inside the larger white patches.  His movement is as eye-catching as his color!  He is smart and willing with a hilarious personality.  He is an easy keeper and lives out in peacefully in whatever herd we put him in.

Spotty has all his groundwork in place.  He needs someone with more time than his owner to get him going under saddle and into a successful career!

“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.

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.


 

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.

Partway there… And a bit closer

Update 5/15a: Content mashing looks good, but there’s some circular links. Sorry about that, will fix in the next few days!!

Update: 5/15 I have uploaded the content from joustingwarhorse.com as a test and will be further integrating our other equine-related sites into this one, assuming it all works out.

For those who have seen on facebook, we’ve had some hardware challenges on our website server, and yours truly is in the process of rebuilding it more or less from content backups. Many of the tabs don’t work yet because I don’t have their configurations uploaded yet… but I’m getting there :=)

Thanks in advance for your patience.
