  • '99 OTTB mare / PA

    We've had this mare for sale for a year now with no success. She's a dime-a-dozen bay (virtually no chrome) 15.1 hand Thoroughbred mare with no special talents. She is a delight to work with around the barn, very easygoing. Under saddle she only knows the basics W/T/C and she's jumped a little.

    She was raced and was a broodmare for a year. Since then she's just been a pleasure/trail horse. She's never been a 'rescue' and has (as far as I know) always been very well taken care of.

    I'm just putting this out there to see if anyone would be interested in her for FREE, or as a free lease. Naturally, this would be to an approved home/situation only!

    If interested, check out the video b/c I have more info on there... pm or e-mail me at mdnardella@yahoo.com for more information on her.

    Here is a video I made last year -

    We are between State College and Williamsport. Four miles off of I-80 exit 192.

    I am certain you will get some interest here. If you were closer, I would take a look at her. Good Luck in placing her!
    Life is too short to argue with a mare! Just don't engage! It is much easier that way!

    Have fun, be safe, and let the mare think it is her idea!

      Can this mare hack out on the trail alone? If so, I may have a client that would be very interested, she sounds like exactly what they have been looking for.
      Your dog may not be broken, but he still needs to be fixed.

          I think she could. The thing is, I can't say for sure because I don't trail ride alone and I don't let my daughter trail ride alone.

          She has taken her down the road a little ways alone usually no problem. Corley is scared of only one thing - Amish buggies. Once my daughter took her down the road when a buggy came by and that didn't go so well, but it doesn't go well when she's in a group and a buggy goes by either. She gets nervous, jiggy and wants to get away from the buggy. Bears, grouse, turkeys, cars, motorcycles, dogs... those are all OK but not buggies.

          I know when we are out in a group, Corley doesn't really care if she gets a mile ahead of everyone, or is left behind. We've even split the group and gone separate ways and she will leave her buddy.

            Nice Horse for Petite Rider!

            I'm 5'10" so that would not be me, but gosh she looks nice and useful, (cute rider too!) Would she put up with teaching a beginner adult? I know a trainer looking for one to do that.
            Good luck! She is going to make someone a nice horse.

              She put up with my daughter teaching our neighbor kid (who had never ridden before in her life) to walk + trot. With supervision and good guidance (don't *kick*, don't hang on the reins) she will plug right along.

              I would have someone tune up her canter before letting a beginner attempt it. She won't run away, but it might take a lot of trot strides to get into the canter, and every now and then she'll toss a little strange crow-hop in to announce that she is switching to the canter.

              I actually think with her laid-back personality she would eventually be a wonderful school horse once she had some more ring time, which she's just not getting here!

                              I am going to send her info to one of my daughter's 4H friends. She is looking to move up from her pony. Nice rider and would be a very good match.
