You’re still reading, great! Maddy was meant to be a racehorse and while she has the spunk, and thinks she has the speed- she didn’t make the cut, and never made it to the gate. In my teens and early 20’s zipping around on a pocket rocket sports car was my cup of tequila- now that I’m in my 30’s I’m sipping chamomile tea, with my sedan safely in park- and came to this decision… for sale due to no fault of her own- This mare is a great horse… for someone else.
Maddy is who she is, and has never pretended to be anyone else- she’s the friend you take shopping who is going to tell you honestly that you look fat in those jeans, that’s going to say you’re too vain while fixing her make up and avoiding eye contact, and will ditch you at the bar for the boy with the leather jacket and a motorcycle.
Back when I was only mentally too big for my breeches, Maddy went to recognized events through BN, schooling events and jumper shows up to 3’, and was schooling 1st/2nd level dressage movements. All in a rubber snaffle- she’s sassy, not a fire breathing dragon. She has not been in full work for about a year, and is currently not in work at all, as I do not have the emotional capacity to ride this creature the 6 days a week she prefers. BUT not to worry, I have many pics and videos of The Glory DaysTM if you need proof- I promise not to subject you to proof of being physically too big for my breeches now.
Honestly, if I was 15, I would be unstoppable with this horse. She loves regular activities: be it a Pony Club schedule working for a rating, working with a trainer in a program, ring work 5 days a week- or ring work today, trail ride tomorrow, Starbucks drive through the next…
Maddy has been adored by many a pasture mate that she couldn’t give two sh*ts about- geldings old and young, and mares of various shapes- but like a good Gen Z-er, she’s great with alone time too. She has the vets, farrier, and dentist fooled into thinking she’s got her life together –volunteering on the weekends and making regular contributions to a 401k.
If you’ve got the time, this horse is more fun than running up the down escalator. Priced low 4 figures, but if you’re a great home and this made you laugh: make me an offer.
