Dixie is an 8 year-old, 15 hand, black & white Overo Paint mare. She has been used for summer camp and trail rides for anyone 6 years old and up. She's an extremely easy keeper. Dixie is a sweet horse with no bad habits. We've had her for 2 years. She will lead willingly, ride in the middle of a group of horses, or ride at the very back of the line without a struggle to hold her back. She doesn't spook at deer, vehicles, or birds flying up suddenly in front of her. She will ride out alone, and she's fine with dogs tagging along on the trail even when they dart in and out among the horses' feet and splash through the creeks. Dixie has no problem crossing bridges, creeks, and going through mud.

I love riding her bareback because she has an awesome back for it. In fact, she has a trench down her back - not a backbone - so no spine up your butt cheeks when you ride! She gets lighter in the summer when the sun bleaches her coat, but she's black the rest of the year. She's easy to load and stands for the farrier. Dixie is easy to catch even in a large, open pasture. This gorgeous horse is for sale for just $2,400.

Julie is an incredibly sweet, well mannered Belgian mare. She rides and reportedly drives, but we've only ridden her for the past 6 years. She's 12 years old, and anyone - and I do mean anyone - can ride her. She's been used for trail rides on our farm for people who weigh more than 200 lbs and for very young children (ages 2 and 3 years old) to ride double with a parent in a big, oversized saddle while being handled by one of my staff. Children as young as 6 years old can ride Julie on their own. She's that gentle and reliable.

Julie has no vices and is a joy to own. She'll do anything you ask of her: cross bridges, creeks, and mud. She'll ride quietly by deer, all kinds of equipment running (chain saws, tractors, etc.), and kids jumping on a trampoline without spooking. She's incredibly quiet and easy to lead. If you're in the market for a horse that can carry a heavier rider and teach you to ride, Julie's your girl.

She's up to date on de-wormer, shots, teeth flotation, and negative Coggins. She's fat and healthy in every respect. Julie will make you look good even if you don't know how to ride, and you'll never have to worry that anyone will ever ask you, "Does this horse make my butt look big?" This child-safe, versitle horse is for sale for just $1,900.
