    Default Green Hunter Mare NoVA

    I have a gorgeous Belgian WB mare, 7 yrs, around 16.1 hands that I'm looking to free lease out. I would prefer her go to a Hunter type rider, as she is more suited to that discipline. She has been shown locally, and done fine. She is still green to new places, looks at jumps and will refuse if rider doesn't give proper calm encouragement. She has nice movement and jump, but is not a "A" Circuit candidate. Please message me for more info.

    Default CT Horseless Rider

    My current show horse is going to dropped down a level after showing at 3 feet for 15(!) years. His well deserved semi retirement leaves me with not much to ride. Looking for another Mr Right to bring to the farm where I board and make up to be a show hunter. Anybody?

    Default {Sorta} Riderless Horse in Central MA

    Hi all-

    I currently have my hands full my own OTTB and my competition horse as well as riding several client horses and my poor other horse has been pushed to the side. He is great. He's 17.1, big Selle Francias. He was did the high level jumpers in his prime and now is enjoying flatting, hacking, and occasionally a small fence. He is 17 years old and does need maintenance if I wanted to still compete him. I've decided to keep him on the best of supplements, the best of care, but let him enjoy a more leisurely lifestyle away from the show ring. He is not a push button to ride-he does have lots of buttons and a strong work ethic. I love riding him because he really does make you ride correctly. He does have stringhalt in his hind legs which causes him to have a high stepping motion-he has had this his whole life and it improves with consistent work and is not a painful condition for him. He is an absolute gentleman on the ground and will stand for hours for loving and grooming. I am looking for someone who would want to enjoy him on the ground as well as keeping him in a dressage focus or simply enjoying hacking. He is currently boarded at a barn in central MA. I would prefer for him to stay on-farm and for someone to half lease him but to the absolute perfect situation I would consider leasing him off property.

    Default Soon to be horseless in Orlando, FL

    Hi I'm relocating to Orlando (east side) for work next month. Leaving my dressage horse with her trainer, leaving my beloved schoolhorse with his owner (my trainer), and throwing a wide net for a part-time horse friend in my new home.

    Any discipline, some non-arena work would be wonderful.

    *fingers crossed* while I check my PMs.

    Thanks.

    Default Horseless dressage/jumper adult SOUTHWEST MI

    I've posted here a few times but no bites so I'll try again...

    I'm a 30 year old college instructor who is horseless after my own horse, a 19 year old OTTB, passed away last year. I'm looking for a horse to ride in either the Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, or Schoolcraft/Three Rivers areas of Michigan. (I work in Grand Rapids, but live in Marcellus, so I am up and down 131 all the time). I take weekly dressage lessons with an FEI instructor(I can provide details), and I trained my own horse up to Modified Jumpers, 2nd level dressage, and Training Eventing. I'd like a horse--any horse or even pony (I'm short/small 5'3 125 lbs)--just to work with on basic dressage between lessons. Young TBs off the track are up my alley, as are Arabs, Morgans, pretty much anything. I enjoy the challenge of relaxing hot/fast horses into dressage work, and I love working on the basics with any horse. I'm not picky--I'd be happy to get any idle horse in your pasture going--young, old, talented, untalented, green, experienced--doesn't matter. I'd even be willing to do slow careful work with an older horse who doesn't want to be retired, or work with a youngster. PM me if interested.

    Default Riderless Horses in Central CT

    Hi - I have two semi-riderless horses in central CT....

    6 yr old Appendix Gelding: Sweet guy who can be free-leased a couple days a week. He is about 15.3 and can do pre-children's, modified adults and similar stuff. Knows his lead changes and is unflappable around a course.

    8 yr old Oldenburg mare: Lovely mare available for a partial lease (couple rides per week). She's a stunning mover, with auto changes and a huge step. She walks the lines and currently shows in adults. She's about 16 hands (has a perm card at 15.3 3/4, but she's got a huge body).

    Both of these horses would be available to show if interested. They are boarded at a great, private farm with a nice indoor and lighted outdoor. I just cannot afford full board on both of them (or the time to ride both as often as they should!) so I'm looking for someone to share use with me. Great opportunity to get in the saddle a couple days a week :-) All you need is a helmet and some boots - I can lend you my saddle (a super comfy Butet) and all other tack.

    My two teenage daughters take weekly riding lessons but would like more riding time. They've been riding for about two and a half years and can walk and trot confidently. If you are on the South Shore and have a horse(s) that would suit them, please e-mail me at magiadigaited@aim.com Thanks!

    Default Riderless Horse in Frederick/Adamstown, Maryland

    I've tried leasing out my mare but can't find any takers. I could really use somebody to help me love on her and keep her in shape this winter.

    Tazz is a 15 hand bay QH mare. Not marish. Suitable for an advanced Beginner all the way through an advanced rider. Tazz is a "kick on" mare, has decent gaits on the flat, and is a VERY good little jumper.

    I've love to find somebody to rider her a couple times a week. Rider could also participate in shows if he/she wants.

    I have a ton of photos. Tazz competed at Recognized Novice eventing this past summer, and would still be eventing if I hadn't run out of money.

    Would you consider a free lease off the farm?

    Default Horseless Rider near San Francisco, CA

    My horse recently had a suspensory injury, so I'm looking for a horse to ride! I've evented up to Novice level (on both made and green horses), jumped up to 3'9'', competed upper training-level dressage (schooled movements up to 2nd level), and have experience riding many different types of horses.

    I've taken a green OTTB on a catch ride to her first Novice (with a 34.5 in dressage and a clean stadium), having only ridden her the day before the event Also rode a green IDSH mare at BN a few weeks ago.

    Looking for a horse to ride 2-5 days per week, and hopefully board at my barn (near Woodside). Please PM me if you know of any opportunities

    Thank you!

    Default Horseless Rider Chateau Elan Area, GA

    I have 25 years riding experience. I was a working student for two years for Gigi Nutter, qualified for the Area III YR team in 2000? (man that was a long time ago!), worked for Julie Burns Richards at Fox Hall farm. I have cliniced with Karl Mikolka, Phillip Dutton, Ralph Hill, and Mark Coombs. In addition I grew up riding reiners and cutters and most recently reschooled unwanted sale horses for the roping pen and barrel racing. Lot's of experience with unbroke young horses and rehabbing OTTB's. Hoping to get myself another project after the first of the year but looking for something to ride in the meantime and hoping to meet some people on this side of the state! Thanks!

    Default Western MASS-riderless horse

    gelding, dressage, jumping, large pony (suitable for riders up to 5'6), child safe

    Located in Hadley MA

    I am looking for someone to half lease. He is fun to ride, great lateral work, light off the leg, not spooky. He has shown successfully through second level. I am looking for someone to ride 2 or 3 days a week as I am a college student and my schedule doesn't always allow me to go to the barn as often as I'd like. Message me if you would like to see photos or videos, or come try him!

    Default Horseless in West Chester, PA

    Well, not really horseless but complicated. Would like more saddle time than I'm getting right now. Flatwork only, preferably in an indoor arena, though an outdoor may be OK depending on circumstances.

    I used to ride at a competitive barn, so always rated myself against the pros -- and invariably came up short. But at the lesson barn I'm at now, the BO (who had never seen me ride before) came in and said to my trainer: I didn't know Dizzy was such a good rider. I guess my skill depends on who you're comparing me with.
