We have this wonderful gelding for sale! Seasoned fox hunter for the total enthusiast. Final Edition aka Big Ed is a keen fox hunting horse who can jump the moon and carry you all day having no trouble at all keeping up with Orange County Ringnecks. His present owner has had back surgery and an extremely full schedule so hunting up front is out of the question. That is where this boy prefers to be though he has lead second and third fields as he was being made correctly. Sound as a pound and an easy keeper this Cleveland Bay would make a wonderful addition to any gentleman's string, though he has been made by a very talented young woman. Big Ed is not a plodder, nor a "husband horse". He stands 17hh and weighs about 1600 #, though hardly drafty , he can be a bit cheeky at the beginning of a meet but nothing that won't be worked out once the field moves off. This horse has been made drug free and will continue that way as all of ours. $35K. Bred and made in the USA

Bowler Hill bought this fine steer from Aubrey Dellinger. It was a heartbreaker for her as she raised this boy from a calf. A tough reality of a 4-H project ❤️ So glad I chose Capons as I couldn’t wait to chop those f* #%ers heads off

Meg Poffenberger learning the art of ground driving with her pony Ghetti he is dragging poles before he’s hooked to the cart so he gets the feel of shafts-and lots of noise. He will do this for several more sessions, adding different scenarios that may happen when out on the road. I do all that before he gets “wheels” so the element of any surprise that may cause a spook, or worse has been lessened. Standing is one of the most important lessons for a carriage horse and voice commands need to be consistent and totally understood

This beautiful beast is the first big horse I’ve had in a long time for carriage work. His excellent start is going to make it pretty easy to put the miles on. His amazing mellow nature had him settled into a new location a piece of cake. He did go out with the ponies though, 28 yo Gidget made him aware immediately who was boss😎

Getting to be that time of year again! Despite the bugs and humidity July is just around the corner and it’s time for these fatties to get to steppin in preparation for the chase! We will have 2 made horse that need appreciative new owners who want to crack on up front. They have served their time for us leading the second and third fields with the occasional trip to the front to strut their real stuff! These two have solid three seasons and a tad more under their belts Prices reasonably with their extensive experience Hunt all day long, drug free and sound. They will be available to look at in a few weeks as they hunted hard and long last season and had a well deserved few months off Will keep updating but put these two seasoned, partbred talented, Cleveland Bays in your radar!

I have 2 seasoned foxhunters for sale!
9 y.o. partbred gelding 17hh, by Penryhn Bayswater (Cleveland Bay) "Final Edition" aka Big Ed, in his 3rd/4 season. Has lead second and third fields and gone up front. Competed in Hunter paces as shown. Super comfortable, good mover and jumper, very athletic, sounds, hunts drug free (as all of mine do!)
9 y.o. mare 16.1 partbred by Windyday Shakespear ( Penryhn Bayswater X Penryhn Seline) same credentials as above. Very nice mover and jumper, great gate getter as she spent her whole first season doing that. Not keen on ring work so don't think you'll make a show horse out of her, though she is a beauty.
Both horses are keen foxhunters and enjoy a big day. They are not for timid riders or beginner husbands. Each can show a bit of exuberance and enthusiasm at the start of the day but have never come in before hounds. Regularly hunted with OCH, drug free as stated above.
Gelding $45k, mare $20k offers considered to perfect homes. A jobber fee of $250 will be charged when tried in the hunt field, taken off the purchase price.

Alexandra W. Arabak was 'kind" enough😉🐎 to take Late for Church hunting on a huge day out of the Winchesters Westbourne. They had a great time in the second field of 37 horses to start and were one of 4 to finish the day. Late for Church has 4 seasons under her belt in the second field, leading, following, opening gates as well as leading the third on occasion. She is a good jumper and hope to get her in the first,now that I have a good jock who is free to go up there. She is for sale, not a beginner horse, but a keen ride for someone who enjoys a big day out! She is by Windyday Shakespeare(CB) out of Christening (TB),16.1 8y.o.

Love this vintage bridle as much as I’m loving this 3/4 CB Bearpaw Kiowa. Brains is an understatement, you’ll be seeing him in the hunt field, dressed a bit differently, of course. Making the transition slowly 😉...I did wear my velvet cap today instead 🤠... progress
