She's an absolute doll: quiet, gentle, excellent ground manners, and anyone can ride. Perfect age too: lots of trail hours on her but with her whole life ahead of her. Deer, traffic, and dogs don't bother her (as you can see with the poodle at her heels in one of the photos below).

Kamikaze a rare Palomino American Cream draft horse cross. He stands about 16.1 hands, and he's 9 years old. He's incredibly quiet and pleasant. He's gentle enough for kids to ride but big enough for Dad. He'd make an excellent family horse because literally ANYONE can ride him. He can comfortably carry riders up to 280 lbs. The guy riding him weighs 260 lbs. In fact, you can clearly see from the 4th photo below how much bigger he is than Gambler (a reasonably average size horse). The American Cream Draft Horse is exactly as the name describes. First, it is truly American, with roots back to a mare in central Iowa around 1905 known as “Old Granny” who was the foundation mare of this breed. Second, it is Cream in color, which is one of the three main physical characteristics manifested by the working of the “Champagne” gene. The other two traits which are obvious in an American Cream are the pink skin and the amber colored eyes. Third, they are a draft animal, built as those originally used to farm in the breadbasket of this country before the age of mechanization.

He's easy to catch and very personable. And because he is an American Cream Draft cross, his eyes are a gorgeous amber rather than brown like most horses'. Kamikaze is so gentle a sack of grain could ride him. He's up to date on shots, de-worming, and teeth flotation, so you wouldn't have to have him seen by a vet for at least a year. You won't go wrong with this horse, and you'll never see another one like him out on the trail. This draft cross Palomino horse is for sale for just $6,700. See videos: Mounting, Trot, Canter.
 

Trojan - Nice Percheron Horse For Sale 

Percheron Horse for Sale in Raleigh, NCAge - 11 year-old

Height - 17 hands

Estimated Weight - 2,100 lbs

Gender - Gelding

Color: Black

De-wormed - 12/15/17

E/W/T/WN Shots - 6/15/17

Neg Coggins - 5/11/17

Teeth Floated - 6/21/17

Price - $3,700
Trojan is an awesome 11 year-old black Percheron gelding who rides and drives. He stands about 17 hands and has an incredible gait that feels like a big Quarter Horse rather than the lumbering gait that most draft horses have to their walk. He jogs and canters nicely too. He would be ideal for someone who needs a bigger horse, i.e. anyone over 200 lbs or anyone over 6'2". Since he's more forward than most drafts, he rides well at the front, but he will also ride in the middle or at the back of the line when riding with others. He is just as happy riding alone though. Trojan isn't for absolute beginners or young children. He's more like a Corvette than a Chevette: a lot of muscle and energy. He can easily do long organized rides without tiring, while most drafts become winded and tired when ridden for 5 or 6 hours especially when climbing hills or mountains. Trojan is tough and able to ride out like a big, stocky Quarter Horse.

He's easy to catch and very personable. His eyes are so expressive, they seem almost human. Trojan is a fine ride and won't disappoint. We have never driven him, but we bought him from the Amish country, and they were using him for driving and plowing. In the picture below, he had just done a 2-hour ride, so he's a little sweaty, but you can see how he can to be named "Trojan". (He looks like a Trojan war horse). He's up to date on shots and de-worming. He also has a current negative Cogins. You won't go wrong with this horse. In fact, if he were white, I'd keep him for doing Hindu Indian weddings. This Percheron horse is for sale for just $3,700. See videos: Mounting, Trot, Canter.
 

Horses for More Experienced Riders

I am selling a few of my personal horses only because I have 7 personal horses, and I'm lucky to get one ride out of a set of shoes because I'm too busy training or fixing issues that arise with my rental horses or horses I'm planning to sell. Given that, I don't feel it's fair for them to just pine away in a pasture getting older with each passing year. My personal horses are great quality horses. They just need experienced riders to appreciate them.

In my ads, I try to be very honest about the level of rider needed to ride the horses I'm offering for sale. I don't want to waste your time or mine. So if you're a good rider, you may want to check out some of my personal horses: Pablo, Karma, and Destiny. Prices listed are firm. 

 

Pablo - Stunning Leopard Appaloosa For Sale

Stunning Leopard Appaloosa for Sale in Raleigh, NCAge - 11 years old

Height - 14.3 hands

Estimated Weight - 1,000 lbs

Gender - Gelding

Color: Black & White

De-wormed - 12/10/17

E/W/T/WN Shots - 12/10/17

Neg Coggins - 12/2/17

Price - $3,700
Pablo is a 14.3 hand Black & White Leopard Appaloosa. He's 11 years old and one of the most personable horses you'll ever meet. He loves food and attention. In fact, he's like a dog that almost tries to talk to you. He's an excellent trail horse. He'll go through mud and creeks without hesitation, he'll cross bridges, and he's traffic safe. He's been on countless organized rides, and he draws everyone's eye. And it's not just his coloring; it's his carriage. He's very proud and happy just to be out in the midst of things.

With all that said, Pablo isn't for a beginner or a child. He's got too much 'muscle under the hood' for an inexperienced rider, but he doesn't buck, bolt, rear, or do anything to try to dislodge his rider. He's just got a lot of energy, i.e. he's a forward mover. So if you're an experienced rider and looking for a horse that will get you noticed, this is your guy. And if you prefer a horse that enjoys being with you, this is the horse for you.

Pablo is one of my personal horses, so he is truly unique and amazing, but it will take the right person to appreciate him. Now there are times when he's quiet enough for an inexperienced kid to ride, but when he turns his motor on, you need to be more experienced to keep him at a walk. He prefers to lead, but he will ride anywhere in a group of horses. He doesn't kick or bite at other horses while under saddle, and he has impeccable ground manners. So while Pablo wouldn't make anyone a good first horse, he would be amazing for someone looking for a 'step up'. He is current on his vaccinations, teeth flotation, de-wormer, and Coggins. In other words, he's good to go. This striking Appaloosa horse is for sale for just $3,700.

Karma is a 5 year-old registered sorrel and white Overo Paint mare. She's out of Scenic Jetalito and Jetalito stock and stands about 14.2 hands. She's flashy and broke to ride. She's one of my personal horses, and she's feisty and needs an experienced rider. I started her out riding in a hackamore, but I ride her with a low port curb bit now. She's easy to catch and enjoys the company of people.

Destiny - Stocky Quarter Horse For Sale

Gender - Mare

Color: Liver Chestnut

De-wormed - 12/10/17

Price - $3,200 
Destiny is one of my personal horses. I've had her since she was a yearling. She's 10 years old now, and she stands about 16 hands. I bought her at auction by outbidding a kill buyer. She was a gorgeous filly with an awesome build and a beautiful head, but she had a hernia where her umbilical cord had been, so she needed surgery. Most people don't want that kind of expense, and I can't say I blame them given the care required afterwards too. But I bought her and had the surgery done, and she has blossomed into a great, strong trail horse. She stands at about 16 hands, and you can see '6-pack abs' under her stomach when she sheds out in the summer. She's built like a brick house with a nice butt and wide chest. She has muscle on muscle.

Destiny has a strong will and can be playful. She can be an adventure to ride at times, but she never attempts to throw you. She's been on multiple organized rides, and I've even ridden her bareback on two rides that were each 5 to 6-hour rides. She has an awesome jog and a nice canter. She has never once bucked when cantering her nor does she rear. However, she can get 'hot' sometimes, so she needs an experienced rider. She is not for inexperienced riders or children. But someone with experience would appreciate her. This nice Quarter Horse is for sale for just $3,200.
