Trooper - Quiet Thoroughbred Horse For Sale 

Quiet Thoroughbred for Sale in Raleigh, NCAge - 12 year-old

Breed - Thoroughbred

Height - 16 hands

Estimated Weight - 1,000 lbs

Gender - Gelding

Color: Bay

De-wormed - 12/15/17

E/W/T/WN Shots - 6/11/17

Neg Coggins - 1/23/18

Price - $2,400
Trooper is a 12 year-old TB Gelding. He isn't off the track, i.e. he isn't tattooed. He's very personable and loves attention and cookies. He stands 16 hands, so he's big enough and gentle enough to be "husband safe", but he rides with a light hand, so he is great for women and children and seems to enjoy them. The first 2 photos were taken recently on Jan 25, 2018, so you can see him in his winter coat, and the rest were taken during our 2017 summer camp, so they are reasonably current as well and allow you to see him fully shed out. The little girl riding him is 7 years old. He has a nice walk/trot/canter, and can be ridden English or Western. He has been used for the past 1 1/2 years at our farm to take novice riders and children out on the trail. He'll willingly cross bridges, goes through mud, and doesn't spook at deer, boisterous trail dogs, flocks of birds taking flight, squealing kids, 4-wheelers, or tractors. He's just a nice, tall trail horse with a great attitude.

The Palomino's name is Maserati. She's an 8 year-old, 15 hand, Palomino mare. She's beautiful now - even with her winter coat - but she will be drop dead gorgeous when she sheds out and becomes an even darker, dappled gold. She's an absolute doll: quiet, gentle, excellent ground manners, and anyone can ride. Perfect age too: lots of trail hours on her but with her whole life ahead of her. Deer, traffic, and dogs don't bother her (as you can see with the poodle at her heels in one of the photos below).

Kamikaze is a rare Palomino American Cream Draft horse cross. They are the only surviving draft horse breed originating in America. In fact, the American Cream Draft Horses are so rare, the American Livestock Breeds Conservaancy has placed them on the endangered species list. Click on the link provided to see the video. Kamikaze stands about 16.1 hands, and he's 9 years old. He's incredibly quiet and pleasant. He's gentle enough for kids to ride but big enough for Dad. He'd make an excellent family horse because literally ANYONE can ride him. He can comfortably carry riders up to 280 lbs. The guy riding him weighs 260 lbs. In fact, you can clearly see from the 4th photo below how much bigger he is than Gambler (a reasonably average size horse). The American Cream Draft Horse is exactly as the name describes. First, it is truly American, with roots back to a mare in central Iowa around 1905 known as “Old Granny” who was the foundation mare of this breed. Second, it is Cream in color, which is one of the three main physical characteristics manifested by the working of the “Champagne” gene. The other two traits which are obvious in an American Cream are the pink skin and the amber colored eyes. Third, they are a draft animal, built as those originally used to farm in the breadbasket of this country before the age of mechanization.

He's easy to catch and very personable. And because he is an American Cream Draft cross, his eyes are a gorgeous amber rather than brown like most horses'. Kamikaze is so gentle a sack of grain could ride him. He's up to date on shots, de-worming, and teeth flotation, so you wouldn't have to have him seen by a vet for at least a year. You won't go wrong with this horse, and you'll never see another one like him out on the trail. This draft cross Palomino horse is for sale for just $6,700. See videos: Mounting, Trot, Canter.


Horses for More Experienced Riders

I am selling a few of my personal horses only because I have 7 personal horses, and I'm lucky to get one ride out of a set of shoes because I'm too busy training or fixing issues that arise with my rental horses or horses I'm planning to sell. Given that, I don't feel it's fair for them to just pine away in a pasture getting older with each passing year. My personal horses are great quality horses. They just need experienced riders to appreciate them.

In my ads, I try to be very honest about the level of rider needed to ride the horses I'm offering for sale. I don't want to waste your time or mine. So if you're a good rider, you may want to check out some of my personal horses: Pablo, Karma, and Destiny. Prices listed are firm.

Karma is a 5 year-old registered sorrel and white Overo Paint mare. She's out of Scenic Jetalito and Jetalito stock and stands about 14.2 hands. She's flashy and broke to ride. She's one of my personal horses, and she's feisty and needs an experienced rider. I started her out riding in a hackamore, but I ride her with a low port curb bit now. She's easy to catch and enjoys the company of people.

Destiny - Stocky Quarter Horse For Sale

carla  destiny 1Age - 9 year-old

Height - 16 hands

Estimated Weight - 1,100 lbs

Gender - Mare

Color: Liver Chestnut

De-wormed - 12/10/17

E/W/T/WN Shots - 12/10/17

Teeth Floated - 6/2/17

Price - $3,200 
Destiny is one of my personal horses. I've had her since she was a yearling. She's 10 years old now, and she stands about 16 hands. I bought her at auction by outbidding a kill buyer. She was a gorgeous filly with an awesome build and a beautiful head, but she had a hernia where her umbilical cord had been, so she needed surgery. Most people don't want that kind of expense, and I can't say I blame them given the care required afterwards too. But I bought her and had the surgery done, and she has blossomed into a great, strong trail horse. She stands at about 16 hands, and you can see '6-pack abs' under her stomach when she sheds out in the summer. She's built like a brick house with a nice butt and wide chest. She has muscle on muscle.

Destiny has a strong will and can be playful. She can be an adventure to ride at times, but she never attempts to throw you. She's been on multiple organized rides, and I've even ridden her bareback on two rides that were each 5 to 6-hour rides. She has an awesome jog and a nice canter. She has never once bucked when cantering her nor does she rear. However, she can get 'hot' sometimes, so she needs an experienced rider. She is not for inexperienced riders or children. But someone with experience would appreciate her. This nice Quarter Horse is for sale for just $3,200.
