Looking for a good home and special person for my 19 yo, 15.3 hh Trakehner mare located in South Jersey near Philadelphia. I have had her since she was 3 but my circumstances have changed and I cannot afford to keep her.
She has basic dressage training. Has been doing beginner/advanced beginner hunt seat lessons for the last couple of years w-t-c and crossrails and I have ridden her lightly on the weekends. She is UTD on shots, coggins, dentist, etc. Right now she is barefoot but has worn shoes in the past depending on level of work. Easy keeper. Likes her turnout time.
She is pretty, a nice mover, a little spoiled, nickers when she sees me and always looks for her sugar. She is a redhead but don't hold that against her. It just adds a little spice to our discussions some days!
Prefer free lease situation to someone who will enjoy her, take care of her, spoil her and above all -- love her.
Gotta go. My heart is breaking.

Reason: home found
You mght call Reddemeade in Silver Spring MD. It has a program called equishare, which is essentially a group of horses that are ridden by more capable riders in lessons and on their own. Ride times are set for each horse. I know there have been horses accepted on a free lease basis with some eventually going back to the owner.
The horses there are treated extremely well -- lots of attention, love, care, etc.
I sent redmare a note with my contact information. We've been patiently looking for the perfect horse for a good friend, a vet in NJ. She's in Central NJ so hopefully close to where the 'red mare' is now. Cross my fingers it would work out- the horse would get a spectacular home and the owner could visit whenever!
I spoke with the OP- the horse is literally down the 25 minutes (maybe less... it's been a while since I have been there) down the highway from the vet's clinic Hopefully the vet, her daughter, and the old red mare will click. ::crossing fingers::
I know MTSU takes thier horses to auction when they no longer want them or have to many. They get so many horses donated to them that the auction money is almost like a second income for them! I wonder if all the people that donate thier horses are aware of this! What a shame.
Thanks for the concern, Chall. Inquiries and phone conversations -- some possibilities, some not. Tough week with graduations but potentially 2 look-sees next week. Taking everyone's advice not to rush into anything but to make sure it is the right situation (at least as right as it can be )
