    Cool Cool kid looking for a cool horse to play with in Pa

    Hi Everyone
    I hope that this gets posted here because we have a great kid who is looking for a good down to earth honest horse. My daughter recently was given a horse that we had to give back and she is heartbroken. So now we are trying to find her another horse.
    I often wonder how this kid came from me because she has no desire to show and compete. All she wants to do is ride the trails and maybe go do a class here and there for the fun of showing with me.
    Ava is 16 and is a timid rider. She needs someone quiet, not really big (around 15h or so) not too old (around 12ish) someone who is a take your hat and run kinda horse. She needs a horse that is in your pocket and makes you laugh and enjoys being groomed for hours (and i mean HOURS) on end. She needs someone sound with no major issues, especially after what we just went through.
    She likes stockier QH draft types but she just wants a cool horse. She's a cool kid herself and I'm sure there is some retired show horse that could use a kid like Ava.
    If you have someone that might suit her, please call me (717)542-1832. We are in Pennsylvania in York County

    Default Good horse for a Good kid

    This does sound like a good kid. How about checking out the broker-owned page of Another Chance for Horses and helping this great kid provide a loving home for a deserving horse? There are some listed this week that just need a home. Funds have already been raised for purchase. Others from this week's auction are just being posted. Would be great to make a kid and a horse happy Good luck

    I'm pretty sure the horses on the first page have been "bailed" by Voices for Horses and are available to an approved home, but please check with AC4h to be sure. Also, if those don't work, AC4h and VFH might be willing to raise funds for purchase/adoption of another one if you and your daughter would provide the kind of great home they are looking for. Maybe just let them know what you can do. They need good homes and what a great lesson for a great kid!

    Adopting from a rescue is a great lesson, yes indeed. But having someone fundraise to buy it for you...not so much.

    I would keep a close eye on your local Craigslist, and check local rescues, but most rescues are going to want some sort of adoption fee.

    Long shot but...

    The rescue I volunteer at has a Haflinger mare I'm surprised doesn't have a home yet as she's a very nice girl. She's only about 13.3 though but one of the adult volunteers usually rides her (so it'd depend on your "cool kid's" size). You can see her over here: http://gentlegiantsdrafthorserescue.com/Chopper.html

    They've got a couple other horses that might theoretically be possible (despite being a draft rescue) but I figure are either too young, too unsound, or too large for what you're looking for.

    K that is an adorable pony that needs to be loved and doted on by at least 3 kids. (1 for the frisky days, 1 for the slow days and 1 just to love and groom on her still the kiddo is big enough to ride.) If I could afford a horse right now I would so be interested in that one.

    Any luck yet?
    I have an aged horse who fits this to a T if the cool kid wants to play until a long term mount is found...
