Using common sense I would never do this…..but “IF” I allowed a small 3 yr. old to ride a horse by themselves with supervision –
Ginger would be “that horse”! She is amazing with being VERY slow in all movements!
When you fall of….she immediately – stops and stands in one place – and waits……

We have had Ginger (9 YR. – 14h) & Speck (11 YR. – 15h) -since the first week of September. If you read our “about us” page on our website, you will see that we work with Special Needs Children and Adults. Horses that are not ready for those type of riders are sold to Experienced Riders. In the past nine years of doing this, our normal routine has been, – we keep our horses minimum two months before offering them for sale to you. During that time, we have always ridden our horses every other day spending endless hours on ground manners, and working with them on having patience. Due to unforeseen circumstances in my family this past fall, I took a very long and much needed break during the holidays. It is now January and as of today, 1/12/16, we have started back to work with our beloved horses. It is good to be back. —-
-We have had three horses here during all this time,…Black Jack V, —Speck (Appaloosa), and sweet Ginger. During all this time, they have all been ridden by the girls when they have friends over,….. trail ridden, but not the usual hands on – “every other day with training and ground work”- with standing to mount, patience, etc..———With Speck and Ginger? It has made absolutely!! No difference at all. They both are the same 24/7 no matter how long they go without being ridden and they – every time!! Stand to mount – “and wait to be told to move”. Ginger and Speck both are “amazing” when it comes to being able to do anything you want with them! I am including both in my descriptions because they both have the same temperaments, gaits, —and all you can do with one?….You can do with the other!! Crawl under them – slide over their hips – stand up on them – ride backwards – ride with halter only – ride bareback with halter only – ride double/triple – wonderful with raincoats – tarps – barking dogs – equipment!! The ONLY difference in these two horses? …….I believe one should ALWAYS use common sense with toddlers, small children, and horses. BUT,…… “IF” …..AND I AGAIN “IF” —I were going to allow a 3 yr. old to ride alone in a supervised situation, it would be with Ginger. She is Absolutely!! Amazingly safe, consistent, with VERY!!—SLOW– motion movements with all manners – and in every way —-as well as having a barely moving slow motion walk…. “not moving at all most of the time unless you ask her to move”……….Both of these horses have had previous owners with small grandchildren…….they have both been trail ridden by children…..both are super sweet!! With big humble soft eyes…….and a VERY!! loving nature! If you are a timid/beginner rider, or have a family with several small children or grandchildren, you will love either of these two wonderful horses………Keeping in mind with small children, Speck is 15 hands tall and ……Ginger is 14 hands. Please take the time to read our MANY wonderful testimonials! I have more that have not been posted. I will be happy to obtain transport quotes upon request. I have several that I trust and have uses their services with excellent references. 95% of my horses have been sold by phone or e-mail, site unseen…. I realize it takes a “lot of trust”……and is a “leap of faith”…..but you will find I have several families that have come back to me over the years and purchased 1 – 3 more over the phone – paying by bank wire. One family in Florida?…. have 8 of my horses!! Six purchased by phone and paid for by bank wire. And if we do not presently have what you are looking for? Many of my horses are sold before posting them on the ad sites because I work with families on a very personal basis…..with them giving me some time, finding and matching them up with just the right horse or pony for their family. My Cell: (606) 271-1064 - I welcome questions! And we will make special videos for you upon request. “thank you”………
