This is Julie, a 7 y/o mule who stands about 15hh. She’s had 60 days of professional western training. She’s very kind, intelligent, and respectful. However, she apparently bolts when she decides sh’s done one the ground (apparently not an issue with a stud chain) and will need high fences as she’ll clear anything 4 foot or shorter. She’s $1200 in Medford, OR.

to all of those people that have a specific outline for when they horse shop or a general dream horse

when I was younger I was all about Arabians and mustangs that were black, grey/white, dun, buckskin. I wasn’t into generic colours. I wasn’t about Thoroughbreds


guess which horse was one of the most influential horse in my life

a bay OTTB gelding

fast forward a few years

not into quarter horses etc, not into palominos, generic colours, paints, all about them buckskins, duns, blacks, greys/whites, 

guess what

another v important horse is a palomino appendix mare named lucky and now i love all palominos

fast forward to these last few months

casually on the horse search, wants a palomino that is 16+hh, maybe go for something shorter, like a haffie, something fairly trained under saddle

ha ha

ha ha ha ha

I now have a 14-15hh something bay paint mustang that has 4 rides on her and I couldn’t be happier. 

This just goes to show that you should never pass up a horse because they aren’t what you are looking for whether it be because of color, breed, or gender.

The perfect horse is there, you just have to give them a chance.


Josie’s Treasured Legacy. Son of late mare Treasured and late stud Texas Hero.

He’s a sweetie he’s at the barn, he’s only 15hh. But oh he’s a pretty boy


“One Man Show S”  2002 15hh Roan Standardbred Gelding available for adoption through New Vocations.

Some info about “Manny:”

This beautiful and rare roan gelding was imported from France as a 5 year old, having already won 9 races.  His winning ways continued in North America, adding 20 more wins to the tally, for a total of 29 wins and earnings of over $480,000. Impressive!

One Man Show S (the S after his name denotes the country that he hails from, France) has been spoiled with love and affection his entire life and his warm, trusting personality reflects it!  He’s ideally suited for children to work around and even to learn to drive with. ‘Manny’ stands like a statue for grooming, harnessing and hooking to the cart, he even has ground tying down pat, as his video shows.   This gentle gelding knows more about driving than most folks can even imagine. He is a consummate professional with patience and wisdom to spare… he will teach his future reinsmen so much!

He’s broke to ride as well, in fact he’s been giving pony rides to kids for years now, but due to some physical limitations will be best suited for light riding… which is perfect, because did we mention Manny really likes children?! Manny has been ridden by beginners to advanced riders in the arena and will walk all day long and will go where ever you ask him. He is a horse that a ten year old can bring out, crosstie, tack up and bridle all by themselves as shown in his photo. The rider shown was overjoyed that she could do this by herself! Manny could easily be a therapeutic riding horse as he is as calm and quiet as they come and again is happy to go all day walking and trotting.

We can’t wait to see the extra special home this magnificent gelding will find!

Anyone need a quiet beginner horse? His adoption fee is $200.
