Special Deal For a Special Horse: Shatzi W Offered For Sale
I have an opportunity of a lifetime for a lucky person out there. The mare 'Shatzi W' is an 11-year old Advanced event horse that I bred in Australia, imported to the USA, trained and have loved very much for the past decade. Last year, we placed second at the Jersey Fresh CCI** and also competed at the Advanced level at a few events. I think she has only ever had two rails in her whole career. You can check her USEA results here.
I realized after falling off her last year at the Richland Park CIC*** that she does not have the makings of a 4-star horse. After having a slow start this year after recovering from injury I have come to terms with selling her. She is a very sweet, genuine, talented mare that has plenty of life left in her. One problem that I have is getting her through pre-purchase vet check for when I sell her. When you trot her up on a hard surface or on a tight circle there is a 1 degree lameness that is visible....however, the lameness is not visible and cannot be felt when she is ridden.
I have spent thousands of dollars with vets trying to work out this small lameness with no answers. At the end of the day, it's just the way she is. This however is a major problem when trying to sell her for her true value.
So here is the deal: I am interested in giving this wonderful horse a life of low level eventing (up to training, maybe prelim), breeding (she is by the Dutch super sire 'Salute'), trail riding, dressage or pony club to someone out there. It would have to be the right person as I love this horse very much. The person who ends up with her does so with the understanding that they are buying this horse for nowhere near her real worth because of her condition. I would like to fetch $15,000 to the right home only.
Please call me if you are interested.... 610-806-2381
