Ariana’s Gypsy Girl
Gypsy is a beautiful girl with a really smooth ride!! She stands to mount, mounts from a mtg. block, or whatever, – she is patient in the crossties or tied wherever! Gypsy rides bareback and double! For those of you who are looking for a smooth ride with a little speed, Gypsy is your girl!!!!!
“Gypsy” came to us from Mr. Howard, an 82 year old man who owns a huge farm about 30 miles from us. He owned Gypsy as well as Chip, the beautiful gelding! They had a really loving home for years! They were trail ridden the entire time they were there except for the latter part of this past summer, when Bob’s health issues forced him to stop trail riding. Both of these horses are VERY sweet, affectionate,…and so easy to do all things with. They both walk right on the trailer when loading. They load and haul good even when crowded!!! They both get a long well with others in the pasture. Very sweet, very humble. They were running with ten other horses at Bob’s farm……..the video on youtube.com called “running colors” is where they came from. He called to them and they all came running as hard as they could…..it was absolutely a beautiful sight to behold!!!!

For those of you who are looking for a smooth ride with a little speed, Gypsy is your girl!!!!! She is awesome!! As a rule, we do not ride our horses in faster gaits here. We work with all of our horses all the time….with slow, gentle, easy – VERY slow movements in all things we do, – because of the type of families I sell to. They have to be quiet, calm, laid back, and easy to do all things with in a slow manner. Occasionally we will get one like Gypsy who is very talented in other ways,……like having a faster gait. She is awesome! The best part?……..She is a mare that will only go faster if called on,……but she WILL upon command, with absolutely NO hesitation,…..come back down to a very slow walk and continue with that slow walk without being fussy or agitated as some horses will be. You can see in the videos how pleasing she is to your commands of totally stopping or just slowing down. Gypsy is a very happy, contented mare,…..and she does what you ask her to do and is happy to do it!!! While here, Gypsy and Chip, both, have not seen anything that makes them spook.
Being ridden on the highways while trail riding, she and Chip are both VERY MUCH traffic broke! We have consistently ridden on our 4-lane highway with semi’s/air-brakes!!! (the truck drivers do this on purpose as well as laying down on their horns!!!)—-as well as sirens, log/gravel trucks, cycles- we have it all here!! – and both Gypsy and Chip have been amazing! They will cross any kind of ditches, creeks, and are both very careful stepping when going down a steep slope or crossing a difficult area. We have barking dogs in the neighborhood – people do not keep them confined! ): They come running out at times barking and snipping at their heels. We have the tractor, manure spreader, zero turn mower (still mowing leaves)…..as well as a backhoe that we have been using to clean up the property (stumps, trees, etc.). All of our horses are sujected to all these things. We do everything possible to find out if they are going to be suseptable to spooking and if so, most important, what is their behavior when they do spook!!! I have to know this due to the type of families I sell to, many having Special Needs.
Gypsy is a really fun horse to ride!! She loves to please!! She loves attention!! And even with being five, she is a VERY experienced trail horse that has been loaded up and taken on weekend camping trips, as well as new trail areas!! And she comes with a faster gait that is absolutely awesome!!! But again….only if you ask it of her……- and – no hesitation to slow down or stop when told to do so!!! She is SO very sweet….. quiet in her manners and will make a wonderful best friend for someone looking for a really good horse!!!! That has it all!!
