View Full Version : It's a deal! My new horse...

So, the "prepurchase" happened today and I have a new horse. So excited! I knew that my next step (as my 4th level horse is aging--not old, just aging) would be that I would eventually sell him to someone he could help along, and get myself something new. The plan was to get something else "upper level" and continue up the path to the silver, or get a REALLY nice young horse and start over.

Well, I got a really fancy young horse. The best part? He's 5, so we can start really riding/showing without having to wait for any growing up. Oh, the other best part? My other horse was purchased by someone at the barn, so I can still ride him occasionally, and give him his favorite horse cookies.

He's a Hungarian WB, which I had never heard of before, and he's so cute. He's got a 10 walk, a nice trot, and a TDF canter. I hope to bring him to the Labor of Love show in Raleigh and do a few Training tests on him, and maybe the fall Pinehurst show too.

The only downside...poor Grayarabpony won't be able to find me easily now and "meet me". This horse is a plain brown wrapper (SO much easier to keep clean than a pinto!!!!!) ((and BTW, GAP, I'm kidding :winkgrin:))

I'll see if I can find a picture--oh wait, he's on the Summervale Farm website, page 2 of sold horses, last on the bottom, as a 3 year old. And no, the info there is not me, that would be the person who originally bought him.

Congrats! I am also an owner of one of those Hungarian things. Love my little mare to death, temperament and trainability to die for. Please post pics.

Last on the bottom is a horse born in 1996. A name would be helpful as the page numbers are weird--like it starts on page 2. Just curious!

Congratulations, PF!

I love the (only 3) Weltmeyer mares I have known (ed: ref to damline of the horse). Good friend just bought one last year - same size- big gaits in a small pkg. great temperament too.:):):)


Have fun with your lovely guy!

Love Hungarian horses... those folks know how to breed horses :) May be going to Hungary with my dad this month (going to check out some Arabian breeding programs if the trip cements)... along with scouting out our pre-Hungarian Revolution hometown/roots...

I am totally in love. While only 15.2-3, he's got a HUGE walk and canter, and the trot is not bad either! I'm 5'6" and he's not too small for me by any stretch. I suspect a lot of winning will come our way if we can stay in the ring :lol:. And in a few years if my daughter wants to ride he'll be small enough for her (she's 3 and loves to brush him now).

The Summervale Farm program (Jennifer Williams) seems to really produce some really nice horses, and I'm glad to be a part!

Hey BZ, welcome to the dark side. You'd better find your forward button, 'cause I'm going for gold (er, blue).

grayarabpony isn't poor and she doesn't want to meet you anyway. (and no, I'm not kidding. :winkgrin:)
