Paint Stallion for Sale in Purcellville, VA
~Clay~ is as sweet as a horse can be! Always wanting to please, he has a puppy dog personality and has been easy to train. Used successfully in lessons from beginner through advanced, as well as for Special Olympics (he~s not even afraid of wheelchairs!) , Clay is an all around great horse. Has some local show experience, where he always acted like a gentleman, including at the Loudoun County Fair, with the carnival going! Has free jumped to 3~6~ and done coursework up to 2~9~, with potential to easily do more as he matures. Only selling because we have too many horses and Clay would be able to reach his full potential with a rider of his own. Sorry, but we DO NOT offer Leases or Trial Periods on any of our horses.
About Purcellville, VA
Although the first land grant in the area was issued by Lord Fairfax in 1740, it was not until 1764 that Purcellville's first known settler, James Dillon from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, arrived. The early ox cart track which wound westward from Leesburg towards the Blue Ridge, known later as the "Great Road," served as the town's nucleus, although farms existed in the area, and Ketoctin Baptist Church had been founded nearby by 1752. The first recorded business, an ordinary (a combined store and inn), was established by Abraham Vickers in 1799. This was followed by a second ordinary, established by Stacey Taylor in 1804, and later by "Purcel's Store" and Post Office, established by Valentine Vernon Purcell (from whom the town's name is derived). A blacksmith's shop, established around 1848, was also among Purcellville's earliest businesses.
