SOLD - Goliath's Boy "Goliath"


16.1 1/2hh Appendix Gelding
2005 Model

  • Goliath's Boy is a 2005 16.1+hh, big boned non registered palomino appendix gelding. He has done a little bit of everything - English/Western, jumped up to 3'3, always ribboned in starter level eventing, done trails, halter, trail obstacles, giant soccer ball, 4H, etc. 

  • He has done miles of trails, shown at the State Fairgrounds, ridden bareback and double. 

  • **His heart is NO LONGER IN JUMPING** so he is looking for a flat only dressage type home. 

  • He prefers a rider with a gentle nature. Goliath is barefoot, easy to catch, and stands quietly at the mounting block.

  • He would love to be a trail horse, dressage, camping horse, a grandkid/4H horse, 3rd flight fox hunting, or leadline.


SOLD - "Quincy"
JC : How About a Waiter


16.2hh OTTB Gelding
2010 Model
$3000-price reduced!

  • Quincy is everything you would want in a future eventer or hunter/jumper.  He's Tall, Dark, and Handsome.  He is an elegant mover with a good foundation and ready for you to finish your way!

  • Quincy is suited for a professional or intermediate/advanced amateur in a strong riding program.

  • Quincy will finish 60 days of training at Hummingbird Stables on 4/28/18 - make an offer before then!  He will finish his training and be ready for you to continue training at home.

  • Quincy loads, leads, stand nicely in crossties.  He lunges well in both directly.  He works well under saddle in a frame.

  • Quincy needs a strong leader as he can be spooky sometimes.  He is a mild cribber and a windsucker, but with regular turnout and access to free choice alfalfa the cribbing is almost non-existent.

  • Quincy was owned by a beginner since 2017 and has developed some bad habits under saddle because of it.  We are working on this and he has come so far in a short time that we are confident he will be an excellent show horse in no time.  But this is why he is NOT for a beginner.

  • He came to Hummingbird Stables a bit underweight with little muscling, so his behavior under saddle reflects this.  He has put on pounds already and each day his attitude improves.  He has a great work ethic and loves attention.  He would do best in a show home with a regular program as he loves to have a job!

  • New video posted soon!

  • 15.3hh solid black Friesian Mare

  • Victina’s ster dam, Zabriena W, is an elegant, modern-type mare with lovely conformation and a very pleasing temperament from the prestigious stam 2. Zabriena’s sire is Jakob 302.

  • Victina just completed a keuring in September of 2015. In the largest keuring in the entire United States, and extremely careful judging, she managed to earn a 3rd Premie rating! She demonstrated a nice walk, striking trot, a noble head, and many other qualities the judges were looking for in a quality Friesian mare to go in the studbook. 
  • Victina has show experience and is a ribbon winner in lower level dressage.  She is easy to handle on the ground, loads, crossties, lunges, and bathes.  She has been ridden in open fields and on trails alone.  She comes when her name is called in the pasture!
  • She has a gorgeous flowing mane and tail, and feathers.

  • She would make a lovely family horse or broodmare.  Could do breed demonstrations, costumed events, or parades with some experience.  But she's been ridden around construction, dogs, tractors, heavy equipment, and does well in new situations.

  • Serious inquiries only.  Video below.
