How We Met

I met River this Spring down at the barn I board my two other mares. We bonded immediately. She was for sale, but was way out of my price range. Her owner was asking $8,000 for her. My trainer suggested I ride her for extra practice jumping, so I started riding her several times a week in lessons with my trainer. I absolutely fell in love with her despite the many, many, many things wrong with her. She had not been touched in about year and half. Her owner had become afraid of her and so she had dropped her off down at the barn and before then she had let her get away with murder. My trainer who had known River for six years was absolutely astounded by the way we worked together saying she'd never seen River work like that for anyone. When I rode her I'd get all kinds of compliments on how we looked together and it was fun, but hard because she is no easy horse to ride. She often reminds me of a freshly broke 5 year old in a fifteen year old body. Anyhow her owner decided she no longer wanted to pay board on her and was going to take her to the horse sale. River does not like other people and I was very upset that she would go for meat, because she simply won't work for people she doesn't like which is basically everyone. She rears and bucks and is an absolute monster. I offered her owner $1500 for her. She refused because she said River was worth far more than that, something both my trainer and I disagreed with. So in the end of October I went to sale and bought her for $1100..

Vote # 8 for the lovely River. So glad you were able to get her. Hilarious that her owner lost out on $700 by not selling her to you. Thank you so much for the compliment on Cisco. You know, I never wanted a pinto/paint, I tend towards blacks, bays & sorrels. But I just couldn't leave him where he was. I also don't like really spirited horses, so it's been quite a journey for us. I will add you to the list to blog with when he runs in Jan for HOTM, I think you'll enjoy our story. Cheryl & Cisco

SO glad you were able to buy her, and wound up paying less than you offered. LOL, bet the owner wished she had sold her to you earlier. Left River a vote, too - Cheryl & Cisco

Wonderful story! I am happy you were able to buy her at the sale, even better that you got a better deal! She was meant to be yours. She's a beautiful horse, leaving my vote.
