He can carry riders up to 300 lbs plus the weight of the saddle, so he's suitable for large and/or tall riders. Very little riding experience is needed to enjoy him.

Amazon is trust worthy whether you're riding alone or in a group setting. He would make a great family horse because he's safe and suitable for all ages and sizes. In fact, you can load up the whole family in the wagon for a ride. He's a big boy - a full size Belgian. He has a nice tail down to his hocks, so he can fend off the flies. These pictures were taken a few weeks ago when we first got him. He has been clipped and his mane has been roached, but it will grow out soon enough. He has also been shod on the front and trimmed on the back now. He's also been de-wormed and his feed has been increased, so he will be putting on more weight. New pictures to follow as soon as the weather breaks. This versatile draft horse is for sale for just $4,900.


Vanilla - Nice Palomino Horse For Sale 

Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse for Sale in Raleigh, NCAge - 13 year-old

Breed - Kentucky Mtn Saddle Horse

Height - 16 hands

Estimated Weight - 1,000 lbs

Gender - Mare

Color: Palomino

De-wormed - 2/28/18

E/W/T/WN Shots - 8/15/17

Neg Coggins - 7/7/17

Price - $2,400
Vanilla is a 16 hand, 13 year old, light Palomino Kentucky Mtn Saddle Horse mare. I've had her for nearly a year and have ridden her on our trail system, which includes rolling hills, many creek crossings, land bridges, and some muddy spots, and she crosses them all without hesitation. She is a very confident forward mover, so she rides well in the front leading rides and alone. She could easily ride with gaited horses and have no difficulty keeping up. She's comfortable with large flocks of birds suddenly taking flight, deer jumping up from behind fallen trees or creek beds, dogs on the trail, 4-wheelers, tractors, and traffic.
An intermediate rider would really appreciate her especially if you ride alone frequently. Vanilla doesn't need to comfort of having other horses leave the barn with her, she isn't upset when she leaves her pasture pals, and she seems to enjoy getting out to explore new territory. She's not even bothered by flags flying with the sound of the rigging flapping and the moving shadows on the ground generated by the flags waving in the wind.

Vanilla is too much horse for a young novice child, and she's too tall to be an ideal kid's horse anyway. She'll ride English or Western. She'll walk through creeks or jump them nicely if asked. We purchased her with a wound that's in the coronary band and the hair line above it. At that time, it was infected, but we treated it successfully, and she is 100% sound now. She sells as sound, but if you have any concerns, you are welcome to pay to have a vet come out and do a pre-purchase exam on her so that you can feel confident in her soundness. I've included a picture of the old injury and the resulting scar tissue on her left front leg. If you are wanting a show horse, this may be a serious consideration, but if you are looking for a nice trail horse that's happy to ride alone or in a large group of horses, Vanilla may be the right horse for you. She's fairly tall and has a long body, so she'd be ideally suited for a tall, slender person with long arms and legs. She's current on de-worming, vaccines, Coggins, and teeth floation. This Palomino horse is for sale for just $2,400.


Rascal - Short Quarter Horse For Sale

Nice Short Quarter Horse for Sale in Raleigh, NCAge - 9 year-old

Breed - Quarter Horse

Height - 13.1 hands

Estimated Weight - 900 lbs

Gender - Gelding

Color: Chestnut

De-wormed - 3/25/18

E/W/T/WN Shots - 12/15/17

Neg Coggins - 11/24/17

Price - $1,700
Rascal is a cute, adorable 9 year-old Quarter Horse gelding. He's just a little over 13.1 hands, so he's ideally suited for riders who are 'vertically challenged'. He's NOT a pony; he's a short horse. The difference is in his mind set and attitude. Nor does he have the thick pony mane. His mane and tail are typical of horses - not ponies. He has some spunk, so he's fun to ride if you have some riding experience. He will happily move on down the trail. He will lead, ride in the middle amongst a group of horses, or ride out alone. He's not one to drag along at the back holding everyone else up. He'd make a nice horse for a teen wanting to show in some of the fun shows or anyone looking for a horse that's short and easy to mount but feels like you're on a horse - not a pony. He doesn't have any trouble keeping up with the longer legged horses on the trail without having to trot you to death.

Heartbreaker - Gorgeous Trail Horse For Sale 

Trail Horse for Sale in Raleigh, NCAge - 9 year-old

Breed - Quarter Horse

Height - 14.1 hands

Estimated Weight - 1,000 lbs

Gender - Mare

Color: Liver Chestnut

De-wormed - 2/27/17

E/W/T/WN Shots - 11/15/17

Neg Coggins - 10/14/17

Price - $2,300
Heartbreaker is a sweet 9 yo liver chestnut mare. She's an easy keeper, and very affectionate and comes to you in the pasture. She's not aggressive toward other horses even at feeding time. She's ideal for a teen or petite (i.e. vertically challenged) person. She isn't small boned - just vertically challenged herself at 14.1 hands. She has a gorgeous head and a nice build with a wide chest and butt.

The photos below were taken in Jan 2018, so they are current, and you can see what a pretty coat she has even in the winter out to pasture.I would recommend her for a beginner/intermediate rider. She isn't suitable for an inexperienced child because she has too much spunk for a complete novice. She never bucks or rears or prances, but she isn't blind in one eye and arthritic either. She would be ideal for an adult with some riding experience who is seeking a shorter horse for ease of mounting. She's very easy to handle and is easy to control with a sensitive mouth. In fact, I only use a hackamore on her because a bit isn't necessary.

Trail Horse for Sale in Raleigh, NCTrail Horse for Sale in Raleigh, NC

She'll cross creeks, bridges, and mud without hesitation. She will ride out alone or in a group. Currently, she's shod on the front and trimmed on the back (as are all my horses because we have rocky terrain). She has excellent ground manners and has never offered to pull back on the rope when tied to the hitching rail. So if you find her appealing and have some riding experience, she may be a perfect fit for you. This nice horse is for sale for just $2,300.

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 - Rare Palomino Cross Horse For Sale

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

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.
