We feel that it is important for prospective buyers to understand TNC Equine Center's policies prior to purchasing a horse.
Over the years we have had, as every horse person has, good and bad experiences in buying and selling horses both
personally and for clients. With this in mind we have adopted the following policies in regards to our sales program.
- TNC Equine Center does NOT do trial periods of any type. We may offer an on our property lease period, but we do
not do trail periods off of our property.
- No Deposits – We will not hold a horse for any reason.
- Payment Forms – Cash ONLY.
- Horses must be paid for at the time of purchase, not at the time of pick up or delivery. If payment is not made the horse
is not considered sold.
- All Vet examinations, if desired, will be done at TNC Equine Center. No exceptions. This protects both the buyer, seller
and owner of the horse. Full payment is needed to hold the horse until the vet examination can be performed. for us.
Checks must be performed within 5 days.
We are more than willing to work with you in purchasing your new horse, and feel that being upfront about our practices will
help to make your purchase a good one. I hope that this has given you some insight into our reasoning behind our policies,
and why we do things like we do. Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have.
We look forward to helping you find “Your Perfect Horse.”
TNC Equine Center has 3 lovely ponies available for your consideration.
2 of these ponies are out of Hi Hopes who has produced many top of the line ponies over the
years. Some of the horses that sold out of Hi Hopes are Hi Hopes Make Me Money sold for
$20,000 in 2006. Hope I’m In was #1 USEF medium green working pony in 2008 and sold for
$85,000. Hi Hopes Nikon sold for $20,000. Tiddlywinks was one of High Hopes first offspring in
the late 80s and was leased for $10,000/year. You can also look up information on Hi Hopes
Motion Picture, Hi Hopes Hunter Moon, and Hi Hopes Formal Attire. We are talking about some
nice ponies here!
We were hoping to keep these three ponies around for the winter for projects for ourselves but as
our lesson program is taking off, we are finding it hard to make the time to work with these ponies
as much as we had hoped. Our loss is your gain.
All 3 of these ponies are green broke so we are not recommending them for beginner children! If
you want them for a beginner child, you will need to send them out for training or do the training
yourself. We’ve had teen riders on these ponies working with a trainer and they are coming along
nicely. Currently recommending them to a trainer or an intermediate rider with a trainer. These
ponies are not ready to go to the show next week, but they are the kind of ponies you want in the
show ring, so if you are willing to put the time into them, you will have yourself one nice show pony
as these ponies are all going to excel in the show ring! They will make nice little hunter ponies!
SOLD! Duchess is a 15.2h 7 year old Percheron
cross mare with three big, free moving gaits. She
rides w/t/c, and will happily trot ground poles, cross
rails and small verticals. She is not herd-bound or
mareish, is happy to hack out alone, and very easy
to catch in the field. She lunges and works in a
round pen, stands for grooming, bathing, farrier
work, etc., and is currently barefoot. She will even
tie to the back of my truck for bathing at our barn.
Duchess is a quick learner and aims to please.
Duchess has been to two dressage shows in her
time with us so far and done phenomenally at both.
She recently received a 72.5% in USDF Intro A.
Duchess loads right on to the trailer and patiently
stands on the trailer or tied to it provided she has a
buddy nearby. People always ask if she is a
Friesian, she is just that good looking. She is an
easy keeper, just a vitamin based feed and free
choice hay. Duchess has been ridden by a number
of our advance-beginner w/t riders and she has
been considered a confidence builder at this level,
but needs an intermediate rider for w/t/c and jump.
I feel strongly that Duchess will make a phenomenal
AA or YR mount for someone looking to bring a
horse up on their own, and in partnership with a
trainer. Training and showing will continue until she
finds her next partner, price will increase
Additional photos and video available.
All 3 are barefoot. All 3 have a current coggins and teeth float in August. All 3 are smart and learning quickly. They all
bath, load, cross tie, etc. And if we do keep them through the winter and show them in the spring, price will increase.
H G’s Lady Lucille (Lucy) is a 12 yo 13.3H POA pony mare. Lucy has excellent conformation and bloodlines. Sire: Ruffs
Tough Trigger was a Palomino POA. Dam: Hi Hopes Glamour Girl (POA out of Hi Hope (POA) and Satin Image (Welsh
X). Lucy is green broke and quietly going WT. We are working on her canter and cross rails. Lucy has a nice stocky
build and can easily carry a larger rider. Asking $3,000 OBO.
Hi Hopes Cookies and Cream (Cookie) is an 11 yo 12.3H POA pony mare. Cookie also has excellent conformation and
blood lines. Sire: Hi Hope (POA) Dam: Desire’ (Welsh X). Cookie is green broke and quietly going WT. We are
working on her canter and cross rails. She is on the stockier side. Asking $3,000 OBO.
Gracie is a 6 yo 14H Welsh/Morgan X pony mare. Gracie has a very stocky build, good conformation, and would be
suited for an adult rider or a teen. I see Gracie as a one person horse. She’s one of those ponies that will form a bond
with someone and when she trusts you she will do anything for you. Although we have had multiple people on her, I think
Gracie would love to have her own person. She has a super sweet personality. She is not spooky. I’ve had tarps on
her, under her, flapping around. Flags, etc. She didn’t bat an eye with any of the stuff I put her through. We have
Gracie going WTC, and are working on her canter and cross rails. Asking $1500 OBO.
