Thoroughbred Stallion for Sale in Rocky Mount, VA
Bold moving gelding with a huge, gliding trot. He has been trained in basic Dressage and used on trails for the past 2 years. Good collection and responds well to leg aids. He just needs some tuning up and ring work. He is gentle and easy to handle. I do not recommend him for beginners without an instructor. He is very responsive to leg and rein aids.
About Rocky Mount, VA
Although Robert Hill built a block house (fortified residence and trading post) in the 1740s, the first English colonists arrived here in 1760, and they named Rocky Mount for a steep cliff near the town. The area originally consisted of two adjacent villages, Rocky Mount and Mount Pleasant. Washington Iron Furnace was built by James Callaway and Jeremiah Early on what is now Main Street slightly outside what is now the historic district, and operated by Calloway's heirs and Peter Saunders until damaged by a flood in 1850, with rebuilding stopped by the Civil War. The first court session was held at Rocky Mount in 1786 following the Revolutionary War, in Callaway's home until he deeded land to the town on which to build the (log) courthouse. Rocky Mount had a post office in 1795.
