I bought this mare a year ago for my daughter as a hunter over fences. Since that time this girl has started showing some mild signs of sidebone (ringbone) on her right fore. On the flat she is sound and I want to keep her that way for as long as possible. She is beautifully trained, well mannered, kind, and wonderful. She will do anything you ask and is an exceptional babysitter to beginners. Rarely spooks and when she does it's very slight. With a more advanced rider she can become quite forward and loves to canter. I want her to go to a home that will let her do easy trail rides and have fun with her. She needs to be on fairly soft ground. No road riding. She has shoes with pads on the front feet and gets a daily joint supplement. Other than that she is healthy, current on everything, and sound. Fairly easy saddle fit. Easy, easy keeper. Needs to be in home with lots of turnout and some horse friends.
Send me an email telling me what you would like this horse for and where she would be kept. I would like to keep her fairly close but am open to anyone provided they can give her a very good home. References required. Will be checked. This girl deserves a terrific home. She'll make someone very happy.
This is a really nice mare! I used to own her and she has shown in QH shows with points and was a state 4-H champion a few years ago. She has a great disposition and deserves a good home! When I got her she had been taken bad care of and was VERY thin. GOt her back in shape and NCSue bought her for her daughter. It is unfortunate that now she cannot be jumped but she has lots to offer!!!!
Just a few questions about this mare as I may know of a home for her. Does she need to be stalled or can she be pastured with access to a run-in shed? Does she do well with other horses? Also, what type of shoeing does she specifically need and the average cost. I know of a great situation with 5 kids who ride on their 100 acre farm, trails only. The horses are pasture pets that are not used that much, and the kids love to bareback ride and just have low key fun with them. Please pm me if you think this might work. Located in NC.

She'd do fine with a run-in provided they aren't in a super wet area of NC. With those white legs she does pick up fungus on occasion if in wet fields and she's not a horse that can go barefoot. My other concern is that she has always been in a structured program and seems to do much better with a regular schedule than letting her just run out to pasture and get ridden every so often.
Does she do well with other horses?
Yes. She is out with at least one other and usually with a group of 5 ranging in age from 30 to 5. Never gets aggressive or pushy. She falls middle of the group in heir hierachy. However I always bring horses into their stalls for feeding. She does love her food.
Also, what type of shoeing does she specifically need and the average cost.
She wears regular steel shoes on the front with a 1 degree pad on the right front. Farrier does not recommend she go barefoot since she has weak sidewalls -- they are getting stronger -- and she bruises badly. I pay approximately $65 every 5-6 weeks. Keep in mind that farrier fees can be different.

Jesse loves kids and trails. But she's not a mare that you can yell at or pull around by her mouth. So the kids, being kids, will need some supervision. For that kind of situation I usually recommend an older gelding. I'm really not sure how she'd work out especially since I don't have a large group of younger children anymore.

Is Michigan too far away? I'm tentatively looking for my neighbor. She's a 9 year old girl that would LOVE her own pony/horse. She's currently riding one of mine and the horse would be staying with me until (if? ever?) they get their own place organized. The parents don't have the financial ability to buy one and so basically it would be "her" horse but I would have full responsibility for the financial upkeep.
My husband is a farrier, so shoeing isn't an issue. We might be an ideal fit for her, but it is quite a ways away. Drop me a PM if you think it might be OK, otherwise, no hard feelings. :-)
Pictures are also accessible on photobucket. The longeing video is new. Teen daughter longeing and friend playing with new camera so not the best quality but it does show her movement. Jezze can be ridden in either an english or western saddle.
