14 year old Percheron/Morgan cross 16.2 hand gelding. $20,000
Colonel has shared the last nine years with his current amateur owner. Before that, he had been driven and slightly broke to ride. After Celia purchased him they did fox hunting for a while then settled into dressage.
Currently, Colonel is schooling second level and has attended two rated shows at first level and many schooling shows at training level. Celia has done all the training on Colonel with weekly lessons as they learned dressage together.
Colonel has three very comfortable, balanced gaits. As he has gotten stronger, his gaits have gotten more expressive. He is obedient to the leg with no bucking, rearing, or stopping. He is the best travel companion. You can take him anywhere and tie to the trailer if you don’t have a stall. Colonel is unflappable with any type of surrounding. He loves trail riding and will hack in a group or alone.
Colonel also loves to jump but his owner doesn’t. She has done side saddle with him and ridden in hunter paces.
Colonel is currently barefooted. He is an easy keeper and can go out with other horses or alone. He has no health issues or soundness problems. His ground manners are impeccable and he is affectionate and kind.
He will make a great AA or JR/YR mount. He is priced for a quick sale. Celia is moving to Europe and sadly cannot take him with her. She is adamant he gets the home he deserves.
The video links are of Celia in one class and Jane Whitehurst, her trainer, in another class. Please contact Celia at 813-230-0755 or Jane at 727-254-3554. We are happy to answer any questions and send whatever information you need.
Romeo is a unregistered appendix QH. He is 12 this year. I adopted him from Horse Protection Association of Florida almost 5 years ago. Romeo has been in a lesson program teaching many students the art of dressage. He has been to numerous schooling and rated shows. Recently, I stopped teaching lessons on him because he was getting disgruntled working with so many riders. For the last two months I have been working with him with the second level movements. Just recently I took him to the Grand Oaks dressage show. It was the first time I had ever shown my own horse. He placed well especially for having just begun more collection. Two scores at 58, one score at 60 and one at 61. The two higher scores were at Second Level Test 3. I know with more time for Romeo to get stronger his scores will increase. We also have schooled the flying lead changes. This is something I think he will be able to do just fine as well. Romeo is very smart. He loves to keep his mind active. Trail rides are a must for him it can’t be all about the ring. He is my forever horse but right now I am too busy with lessons and training to give him the time he deserves and wants. Romeo does not spook, bolt or buck. His naughty habit that he acquired while being the mount for lesson riders is trying to run out the ring when you don’t ride him with your legs. He loves to call you out if you are not keeping his engine pushing but he is also a confidence booster and will make you feel like you can really ride well. I am looking for someone to full lease at my barn and take four lessons a month. $1050 is the all inclusive price. Please call me 727-254-3554 Thank you. Located in Odessa, Florida
