Virginia - 25 y.o. Thoroughbred mare needs home

Stafford, VA. A 25 year old Thoroughbred mare is in search of a new home. Her owner, one of a growing number of horse owners in this position, is faced with this terrible decision to due a combination of finances and the ever increasing acres of farmland disappearing under housing "developments."

This former foxhunter is sound for flat work, but her owner does not feel she should do any more jumping, having some arthritis, as we all do at her age. She does better with a confident rider than with a nervous beginner, but will do okay as a lesson horse on lead- or longe-line. UTD on vaccinations. Barefoot now, but may need shoes if in regular work. Looking for new home by the end of September. Serious inquiries, contact Traveller's Rest Equine Elders Sanctuary for owner's info.
