Click on the images and brown text for larger images and videos.

Rose is the total package. She's a 12-year-old Belgian mare standing at 17.1 hands. She rides and drives single, double, and works most farm machinery. We've had her for more than 6 months, and during that time she has been taking our customers out on trail rides. In fact, we often use her to ride children double with a guide when they are too young to ride on their own at our farm, i.e. kids under the age of 6. She has excellent ground manners and is easy to catch. She is pastured with both mares and geldings. She is Matilda's driving teammate who is also for sale (link provided to Matilda's webpage). 

Rose Courtney StandingRose will pick up all 4 feet, so she's good for the farrier and doesn't require shoeing stocks. She also stands quietly for bathing, loads and unloads like a dream, stands complacently while being sprayed for flies, and has a really nice jog and canter. Kids and adults can ride her without previous riding experience. She knows her job and does it very willingly. Timid riders can ride her with confidence. Hefty riders up to 400 lbs and tall riders over 6 foot tall can truly appreciate her size because she can accomodate you without a struggle. She would be a real asset to any family or individual looking for a safe horse that ANYONE can ride. But if you'd rather drive than ride, she drives single and double, so you can hook her up, or hook her with her teammate, Matilda. (Rose is hitched on the left, Matilda on the right). You can't go wrong with this horse because she is so versatile and can overlook mistakes and tomfoolery. See the last image in the photo gallery of the customer's review who rode her recently in April of this year. This incredibly gentle, smooth draft horse can be yours for just $8,500.
