Thoroughbred Mare for Sale in Richmond, VA
Flo is a wonderful young horse. She has loads of engergy and is ready to try new things. She is calm as long as she feels comfortable in her surroundings. She is a retired race horse, and has been in the feild for the past three years, but after her nice break she is ready to go into a wonderful home. I have been working with her for the past 4 months, and in that short time i have seen major improvements. She has lots of potential for the person with enough time to put into her. She really is a sweet horse with a good attitude, also very independent for the most part.
About Richmond, VA
After the first permanent English-speaking settlement was established in April 1607, at Jamestown, Virginia, Captain Christopher Newport led explorers northwest up the James River to an area inhabited by Powhatan Native Americans. The earliest European settlement in Central Virginia was in 1611 at Henricus, where the Falling Creek empties into the James River. In 1619 early Virginia Company settlers struggling to establish viable moneymaking industries established the Falling Creek Ironworks. After decades of territorial conflicts with native tribes, the Falls of the James saw more white settlement in the late 1600s and early 1700s. In 1737 planter William Byrd II commissioned Major William Mayo to lay out the original town grid.
