Dream for Sale

Meet Dream!  She is currently in training to be sold. 

13.1 hands, 9 year old APHA/AQHA grade mare. Cute, stocky sorrel mare with big blaze and sock on left front. Lightly started under saddle, good with english or western tack, goes bitless or in a snaffle. Excellent ground manners, loads in trailer, ground ties, stands quietly for farrier and vet. Affectionate and likes dogs and kids. Ground drives but never hitched to a cart. Cute mover, forward and balanced. Would be great as a kids pony with slightly more training, or perfect for a petite adult. Sound sound sound!   No history of lameness or health issues, and we have known this horse since she was a yearling. Sadly, lack of time forces sale. $1000 neg to approved home only.

Dream has had about a dozen rides on her.  She was very lightly started under saddle as a two year old, and then she was re-started when she was five.  The high school girl who worked with her spent a TON of time with her.  She got her walking and trotting under saddle, doing liberty work with obstacles, and all of it was very soft and quiet. My working student got on her this morning for the first time in ages, and Dream was wonderful, walking and trotting with me lunging her and her rider on her back.  Brakes and steering worked well. 

Some video of her riding this morning can be seen at:



When my working student was eight years old she entered an essay contest from the cover of a paperback book to win a horse.  Her parents never in a million years expected her to win, it was just a good way to get her to write an essay.  Turned out that my student won the contest, and got this yearling filly she named "Dream" because it was her dream to have a horse.  The local paper did a story on her at the time (2006) 


The family didn't really have the resources to raise a yearling, and the person from TX who donated Dream to the essay contest never sent the papers to get her registered.  Consequently Dream has had lots of love from the family and good feed/vet/farrier care over the years but only sporadic riding training.  She's a wonderful little horse and will do just fine with someone who understands she's green.  Because of this her price is negotiable to an approved home.  Dream will be in training here until sold.
