Katie and Mr Indiscretion (“Trip”) had a good run this past weekend at Pine Top Advanced Horse Trials. The pair finished 14th in a tough Open Intermediate-A division. Katie tells us that she had a silly glance off and Trip had a stop at the coffin on cross-country, but besides that everything else was great and she is really happy with him. Way to go Katie & Trip!
Spring is coming! Start your spring season off with a new competition partner who can help you achieve your goals! Katie has two awesome geldings for sale currently and needs to make room in her barn! Both horses are currently located in Aiken, SC with Katie. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info!
1.) Absolute Addiction (“Gus”): 17 hand, 2006 bay Thoroughbred gelding. He has evented through the Training-level and also done the jumpers. Although he is a talented jumper, unfortunately, Gus doesn’t love cross-country so we think he will best excel in the jumper ring.
Gus would be perfect as a Children’s or Adult amateur jumper with the scope and potential to do the 4-foot jumper classes. He is an easy ride who jumps from any distance. He has been successfully showing in the 1.0 meter classes and is moving up to the 1.1 meter classes at the end of the month. With his temperament and sweet personality Gus could also be made into a nice Equitation horse as well with a little time and finishing work. Gus has a sensitive mouth and is very in-tune with his riders which allows him to be ridden off of the rider’s seat and back. This is one incredible horse who can take you to the next level! $15,000 *All reasonable offers considered*
2.) (“Smoke”): 17.1 hand, 2010 OTTB bay gelding with the talent and willing attitude to go far! He is a West Virginia-bred Thoroughbred who was successful on the track at 4-years-old and then decided as a 5-year-old that he no longer wanted to race. Smoke has a great attitude and is eager to please. He is quiet enough for an amateur with the movement and scope to be a solid Training-level horse in 2016! He has already competed at his first event and took it all in stride. Priced to sell at $10,000.
Katie is heading off to Aiken, South Carolina to begin her 2016 season! If you have missed her recently, then don’t worry! Katie is returning to Maryland a few times to teach so if you are interested in setting up lessons with Katie, now is the time to do it! Email email@example.com to schedule your lesson with Katie! She will be back on:
Marty is a 15.3h, 6-year-old bay Thoroughbred gelding. Marty has a slight conformational issue that causes him to have periods of unsoundness but it is not tendon-related and can be fixed with time and correctional shoeing (owner currently doesn’t have resources to do so). He is very quiet and can jump small fences and also enjoys going out for trail rides. He would be best suited for the local hunters, as a beginner lesson horse or a trail horse. Owner just divorced and doesn’t have the resources to keep him sound so he MUST GO ASAP! Marty is free to a good home.
These horses are currently looking for homes! Contact Katie today for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (301) 606-5436
1.) UPDATED: Marty is a 15.3h, 6-year-old bay Thoroughbred gelding. Marty has a slight confirmational issue that causes him to have periods of unsoundness but it is not tendon-related and can be fixed with time and correctional shoeing (owner currently doesn’t have resources to do so).

Owner just divorced and doesn’t have the resources to keep him sound so he MUST GO ASAP! Marty is free to a good home.
2.) UPDATED: Dance is a 17.h, 6-year-old Thoroughbred chestnut gelding. He has great ground manners and a great brain and all of his training has been done by an amateur. Dance has been started over fences and is doing well. He prefers to jump and hack on trails over ring work. He is not going to do what the owner wants so in search of a new home. Dance would be a great foxhunt prospect or low-level hunter prospect. Asking $3,000 OBO.

1.) Marty is a 15.3h, 6-year-old bay Thoroughbred gelding. He is very quiet and is currently jumping small fences and enjoys going out for trail rides. He would be best suited for the hunters and as a local hunt prospect. Priced at $3,000 OBO.
2.) Dakota is a 16h, 22-year-old dark bay Thoroughbred gelding. He is sound, healthy, bombproof and needs no maintenance. Dakota is an easy keeper with great ground manners and loves people. Suitable for trail riding and hunter paces as he doesn’t enjoy the ring. He has a great brain and is the same whether you ride him once a week or once a year. Can be ridden by advanced beginner (attached picture is my 13 year old son riding him who is an advanced beginner after Dakota sat all winter). Needs front shoes when in work. Free lease situation to good home only – must come back to owner at the end of the lease.
3.) Liberty Lace, aka “Lacey,” is a 16.1h, 9-year-old dark bay Thoroughbred mare . Lacey is a beautiful, big- boned mare who would be a great brood mare or horse for intermediate rider who wants to do light ring work. She had one year of professional training and can w/t/c and jump small cross-rails. She was treated for low grade EPM in 2013 but it wasn’t severe as she never lost balance, was never neurological and measured a 1 on the EPM scale. She has a puppy dog personality, loves people, has good ground manners and easy keeper. Needs front shoes when in work. Can be high strung in new riding situations since EPM but will settle in with a little time in a new place. A good home is a must. Inquire for price.
