Rip is  a handsome appendix QH gelding, 15.3 hands, around 18 – 20 yrs old. Former show horse and lesson horse. Smooth gaits. English + western. Can still be ridden lightly, but requires maintenance of equioxx and cosequin. Currently lightly ridden 2+x week by a working student. Phenomenal companion horse. Would love to see him in an adult backyard home as companion and occasional light trail horse. Advanced beginner to intermediate rider. Located in southwestern NH.

Roxy is a 17 year old palomino mare quarter horse. She has a very sweet disposition and loves attention! Roxy is looking for her new home as a companion horse with low-maintenance. She is barefoot, stands at cross ties, fence, and for vet/farrier. She loves grooming and attention. She has been retired from normal riding per vets suggestion because of arthritis in her hind. She has been in a herd and on her own, she gets along with both mares and geldings. Can be stalled or with a run in shelter.
A great home is a must, not looking for a rehoming fee, references will be needed. Also have winter’s supply of hay and her winter blanket. Looking to find home ASAP. Located in Dorset, Vermont.

Seeking a home for my sweet 18-20yo gelding, Red. He is a Belgian/Standardbred and is about 16.3 hands. I have been working with Red for over 10 years and have owned him for about 6 of them. It absolutely breaks my heart, but I am in desperate need to find him a new home.  He loves trail riding, alone or in a group, and also knows how to drive- though I have not driven him since owning him. He needs a confident rider, as he does get nervous (he was handled very roughly with his first owners). He loves attention and is such a sweet boy. Red was diagnosed with mild cataracts, which has so far, not caused any issues. Otherwise he is healthy, UTD on all vaccines, coggins negative (all done in May this year), sound, and safe to handle. He gets along very well with all horses- he’s usually at the bottom of the pecking order, despite his large size. He is a very easy keeper and has been barefoot for as long as I have known him.

Autumn & Pumpkin

Listed 8/29/23

We are looking for a loving forever home for these 2 very gentle Haflinger Mares.

Autumn is 16 years old that has been trained to ride and drive. She is 13.1 hands and very sweet. She can be a little nervous but settles down quickly and can be ridden by an advanced beginner. She has mild allergic reactions to flies that bother her in the summer.We use Equispot in spring and summer to help with allergies.

Pumpkin is 19 years old and 13.1 hands. She has been just been diagnosed with arthritis in her left rear hock. She very sweet and gentle and would make a great companion horse or can be used for light riding. We use her to give our grand kids rides.

The girls have been together most of their lives so we would like them to go together.

Corelli is a 20 yr old 14.3  Haflinger Mare trained to drive.

She has Cushings but medication has kept her sound.
She is easy to handle, great for the farrier and vet and trailers fine.  
She is an easy keeper but needs to be on a dry lot because of the Cushings.
Corelli will come with  12 corral panels,  2 gates and electric fencing but no charger for her dry lot. Also, 3 months worth of pergolide for her Cushings and half of whatever hay we have in the shed. Her  Biothane harness and Pioneer forecart  are for sale for a reasonable price.  Also, please note that we are in Tamworth , NH.  She is barefoot and has never had shoes but I  have gotten boots for her if she is driven on hardtop roads.
We need to find a new home for her because of our health and a probable move in the near future.

Gorgeous, gentle, excellent ground manners, pasture sound gelding, but should not be ridden due to old injury.  Was showing at fourth level, training at Prix St. George, before retirement several years ago.  With same owner since he was 4 years old. Sadly, owner (who is getting older herself!) can no longer afford to keep him as a companion horse for his old friend.  All shots and vaccines up-to-date.  Pasture sound. Doesn’t go anywhere, so no Coggins, but will happily provide one to new owner.  
Horse is in Cheshire, CT.  Owner, Anne Gallant, can be reached at:
Come meet this beautiful, gentle giant.

Willow is a Clydesdale/QH draft cross 

I have owned her for 23 years. I got her as a yearling and I only ever road her on trails. 
She is not sound to ride, she has cushings and arthritis. 
She has been a good companion horse in the past. 
She has been in her own paddock for a few years now,  but next to other horses

Looking for a new loving home for this guy he will only go to the right approved home Deckarific aka Deck is an older but definitely young at heart Big,Stocky 16 hand AQHA Gelding. He’s an Awesome Light Trail/Companion low key guy. He’s a fun cool guy to have around the barn and to hang out with he’s one of a kind loves to be doted on this guy is a character! He does still enjoy some light light work and he loves hitting the trails. He’s currently ridden english and has a western background but would need a refresher If to be ridden western again it’s been a while for him. Even though he’s older in age you never would even guess it how he acts or looks you would think he’s more in his teens he does not show his age. If to be ridden he’s a more forward strong mover and has big strides to him he’s also sensitive to aids he likes a quiet rider with light quiet hands and legs he does require a Strong Confident Intermediate rider he’s not a Beginner horse at all or for young riders undersaddle he can be testy and know who he can take a advantage of with less riding experience. Deck has no vices and awesome for Vet/Farrier etc hes a very healthy guy for his age I’ve never had any problems or issues with him in the years I’ve had him. He has been put on Equioxx pills just since he’s older and it helps him with any stiffness and helps his joints he will do better if kept on it. I will definitely not let him go to any lesson programs/Multiple Riders he doesn’t have the lesson horse attitude and never has been one and likes to bond with his rider. Looking for him to go to a good loving forever home only to live out his life and relax this guys got many good years left. He will only go to a great approved home I will not let him go to just anyone just looking for a low key loving home for him ideally for him a backyard barn type he does not do well in big barns with a lot of commotion. Pictures of barn and place he will be going are required.This guy does everything you ask of him he has a heart of gold. Come take a look at him he’s a must see in person pics don’t do this handsome guy justice ! Unfortunately Financial issues forces new home on this guy.
Please Email Kirstin for any further info at [email protected] Thanks !
