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.

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
