Inlet is a 2014 registered Thoroughbred 16.2h gelding. Inlet is one of the nicest moving Thoroughbreds I’ve ever seen! He has an impressive hind leg with incredible hock action, and a lovely shoulder to boot! Inlet is his registered name. He is by Rockport Harbor – Perfectly Polish, by Polish Numbers. Inlet was purchased last November after racing only eight times only at the age of four. He is learning at a very fast rate and looking to shine as a dressage, eventing, or jumper star. He is great to lunge, good with side reins and has started over poles. He has taken to work over jumps like a fish to water, so we think he would be happy in many disciplines. To ride he is very comfortable to sit. This is a very fancy horse that needs a qualified rider or one working with a trainer.



Sommerwind (Sinatra Song x Fanciful/Finebrand) is a 2008 16h super fancy and very elegant Second Level Hanoverian mare. Secret’s trot is very smooth to sit to, and her canter is just dreamy to ride. She is very easy to move laterally, is not a push ride, and is not spooky. She is easy to handle on the ground, and great for vet and farrier. She has won numerous High Point awards in New England at First and Second Level with scores over 71 and 76%. She was National Reserve Champion First Level for All Breeds AA with a median score of 70%, and third in the nation All Breeds AA at Second Level with a median score of 67.6%. We are selling this mare as a lower level dressage horse as that is where she seems happiest. We want to find her a forever home where she will get a lot of love and attention.



Remy, a 2008 16.3h Oldenburg gelding by Routinier (Rohdiamant), is a solid First Level horse schooling lateral movements as well. He has three lovely gaits, and a nice jump in him as well. He recently was shown at First Level and scored a 73.5% and a “9” for gaits! He could really go in any direction, dressage, hunters, eventing. He will make a great horse for a confident, experienced rider.

Baxter Blvd.

2006 Dark bay KWPN gelding 17.2 hands by Painted Black. Baxter is a very eye catching horse with big lofty gaits. Although his gaits have a lot of suspension, he is like sitting on a big couch. Baxter had a late start due to no fault of his own, and has now been in professional training for a year and a half. He is schooling Second and Third Level movements, almost ready for changes. Baxter requires daily lunging but is always business afterwards, and ready to go to work for you. He will need a confident advanced rider working closely with a trainer, or a professional. Baxter needs a special person that he can bond with. Rider in video is 6 ft tall.

Apollo is a beautiful black 4 year old 15.1h American Warmblood gelding. Apollo has had four months Parelli training as a 3 year old, and seven months dressage training just recently as a 4 year old. He loads, trailers, and arrives at new places like an old soul. Exceptional temperament for such a young horse. Very comfortable and uncomplicated to ride. Dressage, jump, or event – he can fit into any discipline easily. He’s just waiting for a new owner to take him on his journey.




Handsome 1997 chestnut Hanoverian gelding standing 16.2 h. Pablo is currently working Training and First Level movements and has three ground-covering gaits. His past includes open jumpers and conformation hunters. He loves to trail ride and is confident outdoors. He also adapts very well to new places. Pablo is not a schoolmaster as he would be best suited for an intermediate rider or someone working with a trainer.
