Moonbeam (11 yrs. old – 14.2 hands) is a beautifully marked –naturally gaited!!—-smooth riding mare that is an absolute awesome trail riding mare!  She is muscular from being ridden so much by her previous owners.  Moonbeam & our other mare, Beauty, came from the same family.  They were trail ridden by the Dad & his daughter.  The reason they were sold, – he leased a small barn w/6 acres for years.  The owner sold the property & he only had 30 days to move the horses……..that is how we ended up w/ Beauty & Moon.  We sold Beauty to a wonderful family in northern Ky.  They have a 9 yr. old ……..just learning to ride & they absolutely love Beauty!!!  I hope to do as well for Moon because they came from a very loving, attentive home!—————–Moon is very much non-spook.  She has been ridden on country roads, through woods, creeks, rough terrain, – highways, and yes, since here – on our 4-lane VERY busy highway!!   The very first time ridden along this 4-lane she paid no attention to the semi-trucks, motorcycles, & all the other traffic including log & gravel trucks, & loud mufflers!!  Both Moon and Beauty stood to mount & waited to be told to move the very first time they were mounted here.  That is awesome because sometimes changing homes they will not do as they have at their previous homes.  Most take a little ground work & settling in.    ——–They both stood at the mounting block….forever! & waited to be told to move!  Moon rides side saddle, bareback, western, English, and, she rides double.  She steps very slowly, cautiously, & watches her steps when going down a slope or crossing a ditch.—————She is easy to shoe, loves the water hose – baths!—easy to saddle/bridle, catch – walks right on the trailer with no hesitation!! —————-You will see in her videos that she has a beautiful!!!  Graceful!!! Stylish gaitCan really step it off!!!  She can go a little faster and still remain smooth for those of you who want a faster gait, – but she is very voice trained!  Responds to “whoa” immediately!——————-She has an amazing ride!!  For someone who loves to trail ride but also likes to participate in the local fun shows, Moon could win you some ribbons!  She has so much “natural” talent!  All you do is sit up there & ride!—— Because of her stylish stepping gait,…..I will be recommending her for Intermediate Rider, as well as, young experienced riders!  She would make a wonderful companion and trail mare for a young girl!!!———I have my own “Type of Rider” scale as well as “Temperament Scale” for every horse on my website.  On my website, you can view the many testimonials from families that I have worked with over the past ten years!!——-”with contact information” if you want to write or talk to any of them! ————-  I will be adding several more this coming week.   ——-Each is vet checked thoroughly,  sometimes twice–has coggins/health & necessary teeth work done.  ———NOTE: -I have always been up front & so today,  for that reason, I want those of you reading this, that – I have had 2-”possibly a 3rd)…… complaints filed on the internet in the ten years I have been doing this. I have had 8 others made to me personally in ten years, over 400+ horses sold —— Even though it is stated on my website, no refunds, I have “always”-in every situation —tried to work out “some kind of compromise” w/ each family as I did with the 8 families.  ——–When two people disagree – there has to be compromise with both.——–Those that refuse to compromise in any way……. (one in 2015 – one recent – and possibly a 3rd)——-want it their way or nothing……so after threats -basically,  blackmail that if I did not do as they demanded, they would ruin my name and reputation ——So—nothing is what I did.   The result…?…….vicious attacks w/ trying to ruin my name —-trying to portray me as a “horse trader”—-in an attempt to stir families to buy elsewhere————The problem with that is there are sellers on the internet using tranquilizers & pain meds to hide issues.  One tranquilizer last “three” weeks!!—-“We guarantee!!!  We use NO tranquilizers, pain meds, or calmers of any kind to sell our horses!!!!—They are sending these horses to families w/ young children.  The difference in them & me??  —–I describe my horses in detail as thoroughly and as honestly as I can!!!!!!—   I am here for you “after the sale” for as long as you need!!!!!!!!———-,…..Unlike the typical horse trader, ——I answer your calls – I answer your e-mails – I do NOT  disappear after you pay for the horse as many do!!!—————-Just ask the MANY families I have worked w/ over the past TEN YEARS!!———-The first time it happened, 2015, —-I absolutely grieved my heart out when the woman that bought Betty (a mare we kept here for “over a year” for my granddaughter and her friends to have to ride)………….attacked me with such vicious lies and accusations.  It hurts deeply for someone to do that to you.  But since then??  I have toughened up!————–I have come to realize in sales of any kind, one cannot make every person happy.  In every situation, I have strived to work things out to where they were satisfied,  and have done so successfully except for these 2 or 3.  There are those malcontents – that love to be involved in “on going drama”!  ———— that absolutely refuse to give an inch!!  They make their demands and if I don’t do as they ask, they do everything they can to hurt me.  In doing so, they hurt others because I don’t know of anyone else that has helped Special Needs Children – and adults, as well as single Moms –as I have with financing——and just simply “caring”——–I do not take part in being black mailed or back and forth mean spirited communication of any kind!! ——– I know!!!!—- in my heart!!—- their accusations are untrue as can be verified by my vets and farrier, , health reports, videos and photos.  ————and the MANY FAMILIES!!! —that I have worked with!!———-With that being said, if you want to work with me in matching you up with a horse that you and your family can be happy and safe with,…..and/or if you are interested in Beauty, Moon Beam or Candy,…….I will be honored to work with you and your family.  I cherish the MANY friendships I have made over the years from all over the U.S, including one in Germany, several in Alaska and Canada.——……..and I will not let 2 or 3 ruin that joy!!!——————–I hope you won’t either.    —————————–If you are interested in one of our horses, – please view our MANY testimonials on our website:  http://www.forestridgefarm.com—————- I can obtain transport quotes upon request……”I thank you”– for reading our ads & watching our videos!  Please e-mail or call me if you have questions or if I can be of help in any way……… (606) 271-1064— EST. —-“thank you”………..
