Jesse is a well-trained trail horse with a lot of experience. He is a really fun horse to trail ride and take on trips. He is a big, powerful Arabian that knows his job. He is best suited to an intermediate rider who likes an athletic horse. You can go on a quiet trail ride crossing creeks, wooden bridges and opening and closing gates or enjoy a big trot or gallop on trail. He has hauled and camped out at endurance rides and scenic trail rides in the forests of east Texas, the Texas Hill Country, rocky areas in northeastern Oklahoma and a large ranch next to the Santa Fe National Forest. For the past few years he has been trail ridden at the LBJ Grasslands, where we regularly see deer, armadillos, cattle, etc. He loads and hauls fine. He is great in a group and will lead, follow or go in the middle. If you plan to ride him alone you must be a confident rider. He is the alpha horse in the pasture, but not aggressive unless the other horse stands up to him. We pamper our horses, so he is used to treats, winter blankets, warm baths, clipping, etc. He is very happy and trusting and will come to you in the pasture. He eats and drinks really well on trips and can be an easy keeper at home if you don’t keep him ridden. His owner now has health issues and can no longer ride him. He is too young and fit to retire, so he is for sale to someone that will appreciate him as much as we do and treat him just as well. The saddle in the video is his personal saddle and fits him perfectly. It is a Sharon Saare, DD Tree with a 16 inch seat and can be purchased with the horse. The biothane tack and bit can also be purchased with him.

Jesse practicing a few of our working equitation obstacles - the wooden bridge, the slalom and the barrels. See how good he stands for mounting and dismounting - very important for the trails.

Kalie will trot towards you in the pasture and will whinny for her dinner. She has been owned by the same woman since birth and has a lot of trust in people. She is confident on the trail and will cross through or over anything. She is sensitive to seat and leg cues and is easy to collect. So, she is not for a beginner, but an intermediate rider will have a blast. She started her riding career with a dressage trainer in 2012, who showed her to a Reserve Championship in Sport Horse In-hand. But afterwards her owner, who is an experienced trail rider, mainly rode her on the trail. Her owner now rides gaited horses, so she has put her in training to help her find a forever home with someone that is looking for a great trail partner for lots of new adventures. She would also be really fun to show in Western Dressage or Working Equitation. She has beautiful self-carriage and is very responsive to cues. She reins back easily, will side pass, turn on the forehand, and turn on the hindquarters, which all come in handy opening and closing gates and maneuvering through obstacles. She is good with the farrier, tacking up, bathing and hauling. She has very good confirmation and movement for breeding also, with many famous horses in her pedigree including *Muscat, Kilimandscharo, GG Jabask+/, *Bask++, Naborr and Gai Parada+++/. Her sire was Russian. Her dam is Polish / Crabbet. We think she would produce great dressage and sport horse foals. See more photos & her video below.
See Kali at Liberty, practicing obstacles and trail riding. Watch how smooth her gaits are and how responsive she is to very light cues. Her collected trot is easy to sit.
