I See Stars, aka “Emma”
15.1 hand, 16 year old Appendix Mare

I See Stars, aka “Emma”, is a 2003 15.1 hand Appendix mare. 
I can’t say enough about how great this mare is. Emma is SAFE and quiet but prefers a quiet rider as she is forward and sensitive. Don’t let the chestnut mare stereotypes steer you away! Emma is very consistent, never needs to be lunged down, and super reliable. She will be wonderful for someone wishing to learn the ropes of Dressage through third level, but also enjoy an all around horse who trail rides, jumps, travels, etc like a pro.

I would prefer to find someone wishing to lease to purchase at Forward Strides. This is a great opportunity to own a schoolmaster and continue under the instruction of someone who knows her inside and out! I will consider selling outright to the right person and situation.



16.1 hand, 15 year old Thoroughbred mare

“Roo” is a 15 year old, 16.1 hand Thoroughbred mare with chrome for days.  Roo has mileage in the Hunter/Jumper discipline and has recently been in Dressage training with me at my facility here in Mount Airy. We would love to find someone to enjoy this fun girl while her owner is overseas. It would be preferable to find someone wishing to do primarily Dressage and light jumping to continue with the work she is currently in. She also enjoys hacking around our hay fields! If you are a mare lover you will LOVE this girl and her work ethic!! Available for sale or lease.

Available for on-site lease:

16 hand, 14 year old Thoroughbred gelding

A SAFE and fun ride! Tigger has done everything from Eventing through Novice, Jumpers, Dressage, and trail riding. An all around great horse with a personality you will fall in love with.


13.2 hand, 18 year old, Fell Pony Cross gelding

Bubba is an excellent mount for the young rider or petite adult (ponies aren’t just for kids!!) to learn the ropes and build confidence. He has done it all: shown through First Level Dressage, jumps, trail rides, you name it! Every bit of a schoolmaster as he will teach you correct use of the aids while being patient, forgiving, and SAFE.  Bubba is available for lessons and a half lease option.
