About a year ago by father unexpectedly brought home a 11 year old quarter horse that was very skinny and scared. We named her Tess but don't know much about her. We got her at a healthy weight now and she is sweet and affectionate until you try to get her to do something she doesn't want to.  Then she can become aggressive and I don't have the time or experience with behavioral issues. With proper time, attention and expertise, she seems like she would do well.

Tess is located in Glocester RI, please email littlecahill223@aim.com or call 401-486-7863

Diamond Lil is a 20+ yo American Saddlebred mare. She is about 15.2 and is very sweet, and loves attention. Hasn't been ridden for several years as I am getting older and have had multiple joint replacements so am unable to manage as I used to.

Diamond Lil was very reliable and not afraid of anything on the trail. I believe she would be fine with a novice rider. She is sound and in good health. Has had all her shots, but will need a coggins test. Doesn't mind being alone. Good with dogs. She is good with clippers and bath but is a little touchy with right hind leg with blacksmith.  

Diamond Lil is in Ipswich MA. Please contact Nancy  nsmith358@comcast.net

Cassie is a 17 year old 14.0hh dapple gray pony mare looking for a good companion home. Cassie is a fantastic little pony that I received as a gift at the age 12. I have had her for 10 years which makes parting with her hard. Due to a baby on the way I need to rehome my beloved pony. She is great with other horses and for the farrier and vet.

She has had Lyme's disease for a very long time and it does not affect her other than she cannot be ridden, which is why she is strictly for a companion home only! A contract will be required stating that I have first refusal. I want the very best for and I can no longer provide that for her. She is a fantastic pony who saved my life when I was 17 years old - contact me to learn more. She is an amazing pony who will make someone a great companion! Will you be the one to give her a chance?

Please call or text Makenzie 603-498-3790

Penny is a ten year old quarter horse mare. She stands at a stocky 14.1 hands. Penny is everything you could imagine on the ground. She has impeccable manners, will stand for hours, and let you do almost anything to her. Penny self loads, stands for farrier and vet and she ground ties. She has no bad habits.

Penny has mild arthritis in her front heels which requires her to wear egg bars if she is being ridden. She gets along well with other horses but is dominant. Penny can only be in light work and does not like ring work. She would be best suited for light trails. She has been there and done everything you can imagine. She is bombproof and doesn't not spook.

Penny requires an advanced rider in the ring, as she is very knowledgeable and has schooled third level dressage movements. Penny can have a beginner on her if she is on a longe line. On the trails, Penny is good for an intermediate rider as she can sometimes get quick on the way home if it's dinner time!  Penny can be barefoot if she is not being used for riding. Overall she is an amazing horse but I cannot afford to care for her any longer.

TRIGGER and Frasier

Trigger and Frasier are quarter horse geldings. Trigger is a dark bay, 15 hands and approx. 21 years old. He is very affectionate. He rides both english and western but has not been ridden in a few years so would need to be reworked.  He is sound and up to date on all vaccines. 

Frasier is chestnut,16 hands and rides both English and Western.  He does have navicular however it has not progressed in the 7 years I have had this horse.  I ride him lightly due to the navicular, he would make a good beginner horse for a child due to this.  He is  up to date with vaccines. 

Both horses stay on the property and have no contact with other horses so I have not done a coggins test, they had one years ago when boarded and were fine. 

Trigger and Frasier are in Milton VT. Please contact Donna at 802.578.6315

10 yr old / 15.3 hand / OTTB Gelding / Wears front shoes and is up to date on shots, coggins, and teeth. Sneakers enjoys turn out with mares or geldings.

Sneakers retired from racing and went on to spend the last five years teaching students all about horse care at Essex Technical High School.  Sneakers love to work and has excelled at teaching students how to lunge and long line. During Sneaker’s time at school many students fell in love with him for his goofy demeanor and eagerness to work. Sneakers was used in the school drill team and for students learning to ride on the lunge line. Unfortunately, the school does not spend enough time riding and Sneakers deserves a home where he will get to work more and have one owner to bond with! Sneakers will flourish as an English horse but has also enjoyed experimenting in western tack! This guy is happy to hit trails and is an all around versatile guy. Sneakers should be used for flat work only.

Located in Danvers, MA at Essex Tech. Contract will be signed and references checked.

Please email Vwilde@essextech.net for more info on this stellar guy!

Chief is a 16.1 H  14 year old Black Thoroughbred Gelding. My daughter is going to college and I do not ride. He is looking for a home with light ring work and trail riding. Chief loves trail riding and is confident. He can ride alone or in group. Chief has recently been diagnosed with beginnings of kissing spine on 2 areas and should not jump or compete. 

Our vet feels he has many years ahead of him and is serviceably sound for trails and light ring work and encouraged us to reach out to find a suitable home. The vet is willing to share her medical assessment and future riding ability with anyone who is interested in Chief. 

Chief is calm, willing, confident and safe to work around. He enjoys human companionship and pleasing his rider. Chief is great alone or turned out with others. He is an easy keeper, good hooves that does not require shoes, stands for farrier, updated on shots and Coggins.

Please call Michelle at 781-632-5500 if you are interested in learning more about Chief.  Chief is free to approved home only.

Peaches is a 20+ Appy cross looking for her forever home. Companion and/or light riding home would be the ideal situation. She stands about 15.1 and is pretty stocky.   She is the sweetest girl, will stand to be groomed all day, LOVES attention, and will give kisses for peppermints! I would love to see her go to a home where she will have a pasture buddy. She goes out with 4 other horses now, but is the lowest on the totem pole and doesn't mind. She has formed a bond with our 3 yr old gelding that we have which is why I would like for her to have a friend. We believe we have found a home for him and he will be leaving next week. We are worried that she might get a little depressed once her best buddy is gone. She is good for the vet and farrier and is currently barefoot. She is very low maintenance and a PEACH to have around! 

Please contact me for more information (Bonni) at blinteri77@hotmail.com. Peaches is located in Candia NH.
