Beau is a 10 year old OTTB gelding, he is 16.2 hands. He only raced twice and his person before me did some lower level eventing with him. He continued to come up lame and wasn't working out for her so I took him in and gave him some time off in pasture and started riding him just a little bit after that.

He spent two weeks with Raye Lochart about 2 years ago. Beau has a tendency to buck at the canter and Raye agreed that he may have back or hip issues but thought he could be a nice trail riding horse.

Unfortunately, funds and time have become limited along with life changes on the horizon and I need to secure him a home. I am looking for a companion home at this time due to the bucking issue, however, if someone worked with an experienced trainer, chiropractor and body worker he could be a nice riding horse.

Companion Horses

There is a sweet kind of satisfaction in pairing up horses. They depend on the company of another horse to keep them healthy and well-adjusted.  Solitary confinement is about as wonderful for a horse as it is for a human.  Many people's love for horses does not include the need to ride on a daily basis.  The occasional walk around the pasture or short trail adventure a few times a year on a companionable horse is a great pleasure.  The nicker of your horses as you come out to give them a morning flake of hay and the antics of horses together is what many older horse people enjoy in their lives. People and horses make GREAT retirement companions!


We have a multitude of wonderful horses that would love to have the kind attention of a good home - which would enable them to continue their lives. These are horses usually without serious illness but cannot be ridden. Call SAFER at 707-824-9543 to discuss your preferences. We LOVE THESE CALLS!
