Houdini - Short, Beginner Safe Horse For Sale

5 yo, 13.2 hands, $3,300

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

Houdini is rather unique. He's a 5-year-old Chestnut Quarter Horse gelding standing at just 13.2 hands. He acts like a horse, he looks like a horse, but with respect to his height, he would be classified as a pony. Thankfully, he doesn't act like a pony. In other words, he's not hard to catch, he isn't tough mouthed, he doesn't buck or bite or take off with your kid. And he doesn't have the tell-tell thick, fuzzy mane of a pony.

You can see several videos of Houdini documenting our claims: 1) he's easy to bridle and saddle, i.e. he isn't cinchy, 2) you can pick up his front and back feet, 3) he's dog friendly, 4) he'll ride alone or in a group, 5) he isn't spooky, 6) he stands still for mounting and dismounting, and 7) he's easy to bathe. And if you schedule time to come see him at our farm, you'll have an opportunity to cross creeks, land bridges, and I'm sure we can find some mud somewhere. You can also walk, trot, and canter him. He can be ridden English or Western, but we are a western farm, so you would need to bring your own saddle and girth if you want to try him under English tack. This nice, short horse is for sale for just $3,300.

Once you've made a commitment to buy the horse, we won't show the horse to anyone else, and we will keep the horse at no additional cost to you druing that week. If you need us to keep the horse longer than a week until you: make boarding arrangements near your home, finish your fence, build a barn, or a significant event occurs (like a birthday, anniversary, or Christmas), we will keep your new horse for you at the cost of $10/day after the 1-week grace period.
  • Pre-purchase Exams: We encourage you to hire a vet to do a pre-purchase exam after submitting your deposit to put your mind at rest that the horse you want to buy is sound and healthy. If the horse you chose fails the exam for any reason, we will refund your deposit. You won't be penalized by losing your deposit since it was out of your control.
  • Payment Types Accepted: We accept cash, certified checks, cashiers checks, and money orders. We don't accept personal checks, business checks, or credit cards.
  • Refund/Return Policy: If you buy a horse from us, and for any reason you aren't happy with it, we will trade it out for aother horse of equal or lesser value provided the horse is still in the same condition as it was when it left our farm. We don't offer refunds, but we want to make sure you end up with a horse you are happy with. We love our horses, and we want it to be a good fit for them as well.
