Racking Gelding for Sale in Decatur, AL
Dibs is a four-year-old racking mare born on March 25th, 2018. She is 14.2 hands and is a beautiful black and white filly. She is registered SHOBA and can do the four-beat rack up to 15 mph if you ask for it. She does the perfect four-beat gait and is smooth as silk naturally and even with a loose rein. In the video, dibs was put under the saddle by an 11-year-old girl who is riding, standing on, and turning flips off Dibs. She has been a family favorite since she was purchased as a 6-month-old. The youngest grandson, which is also in the videos, got his start on Dibs. The reason for selling is simple. You can’t keep them all, and the grandchildren continue working with other horses. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this little girl. Our only desire is that she gets a home that will love her and enjoy her as we have. Dibs is one of those rare finds in the horse world. She came into this world wanting to please and do her job. She is gentle in every way and so easy to handle. She drops her head for the bridle, stands for the farrier, stands to be saddled, stands to be mounted, loads and unloads, runs with other horses, calm in the stall, gets along with other horses, rides on the trails or roads, will go anywhere she is pointed and learns quickly to adapt to any new challenges. Dibs will be an outstanding family horse. She will be a great ride for the kids, the timid husband or wife, or the experienced rider. I never use such words as “bomb proof” because a horse can be startled or scared, and when they are, they will react; that is how God made them. The key is how they react. In the videos, you notice some reactions from Dibs, and they are simple responses to situations she is unfamiliar with but no harsh reactions. There is a difference between a horse that will hurt you and getting hurt on a horse. Anyone can get hurt but knowing your horse would never intentionally hurt you is the key to riding with confidence. Dibs would never intentionally hurt any rider. To ride this horse with great pleasure, you must know how to start, stop, and turn a horse. As the video showed, she was right in front of the barn, and she wanted to return to the barn, but all the rider needed to do was turn her and point her in the direction they wanted to go. Horses, like children, must be shown what you want them to do; otherwise, they will do what they want to do. Dibs has been trained to ride, but the rider sometimes needs to be trained to ride. If you are in that category, Dibs would be perfect for you. Get a friend to help you learn the basics of riding on Dibs with hands-on experience; then, you will be the perfect match for each other. You would do the same for your children. I am just a phone call away to help you confidently bid on this horse. Dibs is up to date on her shots and worming and shoeing. She is sound and ready for a new loving home.
