Natural lead change. Unfazed by noise and commotion. Smooth and comfortable gaits, and a bright athletic jump. Great to be around, not at all marish.

SOLD or LEASED:
Tyrannosaurus Rex ("Rex") - 36" 9h liver chestnut 2005 miniature gelding. Rex did western with his previous owner and english with us. He is good for the vet and farrier and has always been kept up to date on everything. He lives out in the field with a group of mares and geldings of all sizes. He loves attention! Comes with an adorable little saddle, girth, and bridle. Kids can ride him but I don't remember if his previous owner said she ever drove him. Suitable for a beginner rider. No vices. https://youtu.be/Re9kWlzHQhA Sold 3/9/17 to Jennifer Gibbs of Altona, IL.
The Adorable Theodore ("Teddy") - 16.2h bay 2012 Thoroughbred gelding. Since retiring sound from the track last fall, Teddy has had a wonderful restart. He is sensitive and responsive to a light touch but is very quiet. He is level-headed and has been ridden in heavy traffic and jumped outdoors in an unfenced area. A junior/amateur rider could bring him along if they were in a program with a trainer. He has a light airy trot and his canter is so smooth and balanced it's a dream to ride. He is super cute and will turn heads in the hunter ring, but he's very athletic and could easily move into the jumper ring. No vices.

Sneak Preview ("Ponyta") - 15h gray 1998 gelding. This guy is a good mover and a good jumper with a lead change that's a little rusty, but still there. He tends to be a bit on the lazy side, giving riders the chance to build leg as they build confidence. Even the little kids can get his easy canter depart. He has very smooth gaits and lots of dressage in his flatwork so his collection, extension, and lateral work are all well-schooled. He'll pack around a 2'6" course in his sleep. He is 98% bombproof. He has always been sound with no health issues. His hooves are amazing! Even when he's overdue and they are a little long they don't crack and he's never needed shoes. No vices. Show record: https://www.usef.org/_IFrames/Searches/horseResults.aspx --> (ENTER Horse ID# 4910791 and SELECT DATE RANGE starting at 2005). Suitable for a beginner rider. In fact, he was the trainer's choice for their 6 year old grandson's first walk/trot class at an away show.
Special Edition ("Edward") - 16.1h dark bay 2006 Oldenburg/Thoroughbred gelding. Passed his Oldenburg test with flying colors and is microchipped. Edward is very honest to the jumps and definitely a leg ride. He already has good show experience traveling to 'A' Rated horse shows; showing in the Hunter Breeding classes as a three year old and then Baby Greens and Long Stirrup. He has done the Hunter Derby at home and away and is comfortable jumping natural jumps as well as in and out of the arena. He does rollbacks and bending lines handily and is well suited to the equitation ring. He has the scope to do the Big Eq but not much 3'6" experience yet. His green status is still intact. He doesn't look at color and marched right around a Rotating Pairs jumper class dressed as Scooby Doo, but he is not a speed horse. He has also been very successful on the MIHJA circuit. He showed in Florida during the 2010 season and was Champion his first time out. Suitable for an intermediate or advanced beginner rider with trainer supervision. Show record: https://www.usef.org/_IFrames/Searches/horseResults.aspx --> (ENTER Horse ID# 5092995 and SELECT DATE RANGE starting at 2008). Video: http://youtu.be/3j_A-IX2ymo?list=UU9uNCFWe1z2nkfwNID3xv4w For more information contact Janine Weatherby at Phoenix Equestrian Center. Currently on lease in Kansas City.
Dorian Gray ("Dorian") - 15.2h gray 2006 grade gelding. He covers the ground easily with his long lopey stride. He changes leads with the grace and ease you would expect from a horse with a canter like this (the first few rounds of his video are from last year before his hind lead change was finished). He has a sweet personality and is easy to deal with around the barn. He has a gorgeous extended trot with LOTS of suspension! He also collects, moves laterally, and is a well-broke, easy ride on the flat. He can be forward over fences and prefers a quiet rider. He has shown successfully at USEF rated shows and local shows. https://www.usef.org/_IFrames/Searches/horseResults.aspx --> (ENTER Horse ID# 5329147 and SELECT DATE RANGE starting at 2013 or earlier). He has shown 2'6" and schooled 3' at home. He has done a Hunter Derby (included in the video). No vices. Video: https://youtu.be/X5ZdhUVKRCw Sold to Tori Davis of Bloomington, IL 10/17/15
Sharp Dressed Man ("Oliver") - 15.1h chestnut 2008 registered Quarter Horse gelding. Oliver is is an impeccable jumper and good mover with a lead change that's there if you ask for it. Level-headed, he has a background in trails. At his first USEF rated competition he was comfortable and relaxed, just as he is at home. He has a quiet, 'been there, done that' attitude that is beyond his years. He is sensitive and enjoys a soft ride. Brought along entirely by an advanced intermediate junior rider. Sweet and sound, with no vices. Suitable for a beginner with continued training, or for an intermediate rider with trainer supervision. Currently on lease in St. Joseph, IL. Show record: https://www.usef.org/_IFrames/Searches/horseResults.aspx --> (ENTER Horse ID# 5329521 and SELECT DATE RANGE starting at 2013). Video: http://youtu.be/e7ZLRe2YI4g
Another Chance ("Lucky") - 15.2h dark brown 2010 grade mare. Lucky is a cute mover and jumper with smooth gaits. Rescued over a year ago, she has fattened up and muscled up, and has been to some horse shows, but is still somewhat green. She needs a rider who can support with leg and hand to hold her together or she tends get strung out. She has shown 2' and is very adjustable. She does not have a lead change yet. She has a very sweet personality and would be easy for an intermediate rider to bring along with trainer supervision. She is a mild cribber but that has been taken into consideration when she was priced so low. Sold. http://youtu.be/1wnw_3HYoj4?list=UU9uNCFWe1z2nkfwNID3xv4w
"Hobbes" - 16.3h chestnut 2007 registered Thoroughbred gelding. Hobbes had 5 starts on the race track but never placed. Then he went to a barrel racing barn where he was mostly ridden outside the arena, cantering through fields and along the road where he was described as lazy. Then he had some time to be a horse while his owner took a year off from riding to start a family. Now he is coming back into shape slowly, but he is quiet and slow. He trots over poles and picks up both leads easily. He's got a big step and a nice smooth canter. His trot is springy, but not jarring. We are currently taking a step back from riding and working on muscle tone in his back through side reins work and some weight strengthening on the longe line. His mind is right, so when his back is ready he's all set. He has never bucked under saddle. He was always sound on the track, with his previous owner, and since he's come to our farm (where he is barefoot). He has such a sweet personality, his year off has erased any trace of race track attitude he may have had, although he still needs a little work on his ground manners. This handsome fellow's price is low now, but it definitely won't stay that way as his training continues. More pics available on request. No vices. Sold 12/3/14 to Leamanach Farm
Chance To Shine ("Chance") - 15.1h chestnut 2007 pinto (solid with belly spot) gelding. Chance is a sweet and quiet horse who is still in the apprentice stage of his career, but is a fast learner. Relaxed under saddle and just starting over fences, this guy needs a friend to show him to the next level. So far, he has only been asked to do simple lead changes. No vices. Sold to Huntermark student Olivia Overton 8/8/2014.
Valentine's Halo ("Haley") - Dark bay 2005 registered Thoroughbred mare. Lead changes have been started. No vices. Suitable for advanced intermediate riders with consistent professional rides. Sold to Red Pegasus Ranch 4/27/14.
I'm Finally Painted ("Lakota") - 2005 bay tobiano paint that is registered with the American Paint Horse Association (APHA). He has a lifetime recording number with the USEF. Red Pegasus Ranch purchased him as a two year old and he has been shown extensively since that time. He was trained as a hunter and consistently jumps 2ft 6in. He was shown in Hunter Breeding as a three year old and was Reserve Champion at year end 2008 with MIHJA. He was also Reserve champion in Pleasure Horse. In 2009 He was MIHJA Reserve Champion in Command Class and Champion in the 4-H/Pony Club division. He was Champion of Show Western Halter 56" and over at our local 4-H show. That year he went to the Indiana State Fair and was third in English Halter Geldings 56" and over. He received the same award at State Fair in 2010, plus earned 8th place in Equitation, and 9th place in Hunter Hack. He went on to earn Reserve Champion year end award with Indiana Hunter Jumper in Pleasure Horse. Most recently he has been used for lessons and was leased in 2012 for 4-H. Sold to Huntermark student Rose Szczurek 4/1/14.
Johnny's Pocket ("Johnny") - Dark bay 2002 registered Quarter Horse gelding. Johnny is a great mover and jumper. He is quiet, easy, and has "the look". Lead changes have been started, but he still needs some work to get the back end without skipping. Nice gaits and a fun ride in a fancy package - what more could you ask for? No vices and beautiful xrays. Suitable for riders beginner-advanced.
Change Of Luck ("Chuck") - 16h chestnut 1992 Thoroughbred gelding. Chuck was a wonderful show hunter, and then had a great career as a lesson horse, and is now looking for a good home where he can retire. He would make a good companion horse for a gelding or mare. The pictures below are over 4 years old, but as you can see he was a reliable fellow. Well behaved for vet and farrier. A sweet horse for kids to groom and play with. No vices. Suitable for anyone who loves horses but doesn't do much riding faster than a walk. Free to a great home.
Dorian Gray ("Dorian") - 15.2h gray 2006 grade gelding. He covers the ground easily with his long lopey stride. He is still very green and is learning to collect that powerful stride but he is sensible and level-headed. He changes leads with the grace and ease you would expect from a horse with a canter like this. He can be forward over fences and prefers a quiet rider. He has shown successfully in the Beginner Horse division in MIHJA for the past two seasons by an Intermediate Amateur and a 13 year old Beginning Intermediate rider. No vices. Sold 9/16/13 to Huntermark student Annika Schulz.
Abracadabra ("Abbey") - 14.1 1/8h (with USEF measurement card) solid liver chestnut 2004 Paint mare. This pony is a great mover, is athletic, and has a beautiful lead change. She has lots of show miles on rated and non-rated circuits at 2'6". She has shown 2'9" at non-rated shows but her Green Pony status is still intact for USEF. She has shown in the Children's Pony division with an 11 year old rider when she herself was just 5. Abbey likes a quiet rider who can control their body over and immediately after the jump. She is honest to any distance and doesn't look at flowers, strange jumps, judges' stands, tractors, tents, or any horse show distraction. She is a sweet little pony with a good work ethic and is also quiet on trails. No vices. Sold 8/1/13 to Huntermark student Madeline Schadler.
Midnight Renegade ("Navarro") - 14.2h blood bay 1999 Arabian gelding. This little guy is a good mover with a great attitude. He goes best with steady leg, and is fine with a loose rein or a tighter feel, but he does not like first time riders who can't control their hands and arms. He is soft-mouthed and listens well to the bit. Navarro is very good-natured and has a very loving and lovable personality. Excellent lead changes. Navarro
English Ivy ("Ivy") - 15.1h bay 1999 (buckskin sire/paint dam) mare. She is a wonderful mare and has a quiet and easy going personality. She is a lovely mover and a fantastic jumper. She has jumped 3'6" at home and shows 3' at "A" shows. She is a consistent winner everywhere she goes. At the "A" Rated Midstates Summer Show (2008) she was Reserve Champion in the 3' Non-Thoroughbred division in good company and carried rider Ellen Reeder to 2 firsts and a second in the Novice Equitation division. She is currently the Reserve High Point Hunter Overall in MIHJA for the 2008 season. One judge at the MIHJA Double Point show actually asked for her in an under saddle class ("Isn't English Ivy going to be in this class? I'd love to see her again."). Judges love her fluid gaits and long, relaxed stride. Riders enjoy being able to use their leg but not wear themselves out! Mane pulling and clipping (ears included) are no problem without a twitch. She loads and unloads, and stands for the vet and farrier. She is used to a decent ride over the bigger jumps but will pack around first time riders for walk/trot and short stirrup kids over crossrails. She does 2'6" courses for beginner riders. She is great for medal courses and has an easy lead change. She has even been ridden on trails and loves it! No vices. Sold 6/1/13 to Huntermark student Linda Moross.

She flexes easily for the kids and has won big hacks in good company (against the horses). She is motivated and takes almost no leg. A true "point and click"; the rider need only to hold their two-point and steer. She jumps from anywhere, every time - as honest as the day is long! She an extremely athletic pony and can handle a deep or long distance, even to the oxers, and at 2'6" where she has competed regularly. She has jumped 2'9" at home. Plenty of step, she is a machine through combinations. Although she does not always get the hind change with the smaller kids, she does have a nice lead change for the older kids at the Pony pace.

She has show mileage already at MIHJA and USEF Rated shows in the Hunter Breeding division. She was the 2008 IHJA A Circuit 3rd Place Hunter Breeding Three Year Olds.

Special Edition ("Ed") - 16.0h dark bay 2006 Oldenburg/Thoroughbred gelding. The breeder of this horse imports Oldenburg semen from Germany to breed her Thoroughbred mares. He has been tested and passed with flying colors, and is microchipped. Although he has only had one year of training, he is very quiet. His lopey one-two rhythm is among the many factors that make him the ideal hunter. He's not spooky; He does not look at flowers and new jumps. He is the type of horse that you can put your leg on and he's not going to squirt forward; he stays nice and relaxed. He already has good show experience traveling to 'A' Rated horse shows and schooling in the various rings; he even did some showing in the Hunter Breeding Three Year Old classes. He also showed on the MIHJA circuit starting with the Trotting Pole Hunter (in which he was Champion for 2009, even though he quit showing in that division when he moved up), and Cross Rail Hunter (also Champion for 2009), and the last two shows he moved up to Beginner Horse Hunter (he finished 3rd for 2009).

Stone Cold Calvin ("Calvin") - 16.3h dark bay 2002 registered Thoroughbred gelding. An OTTB that goes like a Quarter Horse. He was so quiet on the track that they used him as a pony horse! Currently showing 2' and looking to move up to the 2'3" division this summer. This horse is game for anything, he even does the Handy Hunter! His canter is so smooth and naturally balanced - he's a joy to ride! He's quiet enough to be a school horse and as his training progresses he'll be a formidable competitor on the show circuits.

Ode To Joy ("Joy") - 14.1h bay tobiano 2004 pinto mare. This is a sensitive mare and she's green enough right now that she's still in the investment phase of her career.

He is quiet and willing to learn. He is currently showing at the 2'3"-2'6" level. He is the kind of horse you can really put your leg on and jumps great! He is a fantastic mover at both the trot and canter. Please keep in mind when you watch the video that it was taken April 2008 - we had only just started teaching him where to put his head, and that he had only been cantering courses 5 or 6 different occasions before this video. Before that he had been trotting in with a straight line halt. No vices. Sold 5/16/09.

3 Carrot Rock ("Chandler") - 16.1h chestnut 1998 registered Thoroughbred gelding. In addition to being a very attractive bright red chestnut with 3 short socks and a strip, this horse is very sweet and a quick learner. He has given lessons before we had him because he is so unbelievably quiet and relaxed! His laid back personality would almost make you believe he's not a Thoroughbred, but one look at his gorgeous typey conformation and you know he is. And, he's very sweet about letting you take your time to look at his tattoo. He has a very balanced canter, and his lead change is as easy as asking.
