    Default TB mare in Delaware

    I'm going to try this again. I'm am REALLY trying to get down to 2 horses. Treasure has been my broodmare for years. I'm now out of breeding. I've spent the summer getting her going under saddle. She had not been ridden since 2001 when she last raced, so it was slow going. She is now doing a W/T/C. She needs a bit more fitness to improve her canter transition, but it should be great in a month or so. She has only done trotting poles up to now. She is 14 yrs old. She's had 5 foals. She produces very nice, large foals. She is suitable as a pleasure horse or for local shows. She has some small "ankles", and a bit of arthritis in her hocks. She does best with consistant easy work. I've had her out on a few short trail rides by herself, and she has done well. She is still slightly green, but she has been really fun to work with. If interested in breeding, her name is Sweet Treasure. You can look up the pedigree. I'm going to try to link a you tube video of her trotting. She does crib.

    Treasure is 16.1. And she is acts her age. She is very quiet and sensible. I have someone coming out this weekend to try out one of my other horses. If I sell that one, Treasure will likely be staying with me. She is a great old ladies horse!

    Looks like Treasure might still be available.

    Thanks, but I think I'll pass. I have her for sale on the web. I thought I'd offered her here, because it's a little easier to make sure she would go to a good home. I don't want to just put her out as an adoption to just anyone. I've turned down two people that wanted to buy her, because the homes were not appropriate. I don't HAVE to place her. My goal is to get down to just 2 in the future. But, which ever one goes, a good home is a must. But thank you.

    Bumping this WAY up! I'm still commited to my ponies, but I'd love to be down to one so I could go to a boarding situation. For real....I haven't actually been on a vacation with BF since 1992. Treasure is still fabulous, only more fabulous with hours under saddle. She has a solid W/T/C. I trail ride her often. Since she is living at my place, she only has the opportunity to go out on rides alone. The only thing she lacks is being loaded up and riding elsewhere. Treasure is uncomplicated. She is just a fun mare that would fit in to many situations.
