Flashy Filly for Your Discipline
3 (1 - calm; 10 - spirited)
Thoroughbred Mare for Sale in Paris, KY
This filly is not registered and not eligible to race. She is an extremely flashy filly, great mover, very agile, smart, willing to take on any task. Broke last winter and trained for racing, however, the owner / trainer elected not to register and race her. Her rider has been solely a teenage exercise girl and she has never been trained on the track - only farm training on turf. She is sound and has never been lame or sick. She is a very easy keeper and has no vices. She's "laid back" and could easily be an experienced youth's mount. She has the charisma and attitude for dressage. I've just begun schooling for dressage so she will have a great start. BRILLIANT chestnut coloring. This one's got her whole life ahead of her and I believe a very honest one!
About Paris, KY
Joseph Houston settled a station in the area in 1776, but was forced to relocate due to prior land grants. In 1786, Lawrence Protzman purchased the area of present-day Paris from its owners, platted 250 acres (100 ha) for a town, and offered land for public buildings in exchange for the Virginia legislature making the settlement the seat of the newly formed Bourbon County. In 1789, the town was formally established as Hopewell after Hopewell, New Jersey, his hometown. The next year it was renamed Paris after the French capital to match its county and honor the French assistance during the American Revolution. Among the early settlers in the late 18th and early 19th centuries were French refugees who had fled the excesses of their own revolution.
