This is me and my OTTB mare, Skagit Skye, whom I purchased with barely any training on her while I was in high school and brought up from Trot-a-Pole to the 1.30m Jumpers. She actually spent the first two years with me recovering from Lymphangitis and my trainer was intimidated by her, so she never let me do more than cross-rails on her… I switched trainers and in 6 months we went from Cross-Rails to the 1.30m! I no longer have her, as she developed arthritis in both her hocks, and she is just a pasture pet for a friend of mine.
“Latte” is a 15.1hh, 5 year old curly X gelding. He was bought by an elderly woman last year and shipped to our farm from New York. She ended up having health trouble and never moved down to VA as planned. She is forced to sell Latte because she will never ride again, and she can’t afford to keep a horse. He has been at Levremont for about a year now, and up until a month or two ago he hadn’t been in any work. Latte has proved to be an amazing little horse. He is green, but he could be finished by a kid with help from a trainer. He has an exceptional attitude that I could speak volumes about, and he is calm and sensible. Latte is pretty much an “all-terrain vehicle”- on the trails, he is as simple and safe as they come. He is barefoot and has never had any problems. He has good sized, tough feet (a characteristic of his breed). On top of that, he LOVES to jump. He has the most excellent form over fences and is incredibly honest, despite his lack of knowledge or experience. Latte has very correct, big gaits. All he needs is a home to call his own.
would make an excellent pony club mount, fox hunter, or XC horse.
