This page will be left up for archiving purposes and to give people a reference of the kind of work that we put in to every horse that we sell!
Official Catalog Description: This is the horse you have been searching for! Affectionately known around the barn as “Frankie.” Very sweet. Easy to train. Eager to please. Rides bridleless or in a snaffle. Solid leg cues. Sidepasses, backs, cute turnaround, leg yields, flying lead changes. Has been ridden by kids and adults of all ages at our busy riding school, Enchanted Hollow Stables. Ridden by students in the arenas and out on the trails. Goes over or through everything you point her at. Used in English and Western lessons, including beginner level jumping. Very fancy and can excel in any discipline. Cute and stocky. We have done it all with Frankie – pulled sleds full of kids through the snow, climbed dirt piles, sorted cows, and shot guns off of her. Has been ridden by a rodeo queen for big events and carries a flag no problem. Exposed to guns, tractors, 4-wheelers, skidsteers, tarps, flags, bikes, dogs, cats, chickens, pigs, donkeys, goats, crazy kids, and more!
Breed: Half-Arabian Pinto
Height: 14.2hh – Small enough that she is a great size for kids and not intimidating at all, but plenty big and stocky enough for any size adult to ride.
Weight: Weight tapes around 1000lbs
Age: 10 years old
Health: UTD on coggins, vaccinations, farrier, teeth. Teeth were floated fall 2020. Zero health or lameness issues. Totally sound. Never foundered.
Current Feeding Routine: She is currently on grass/alfalfa mix hay and gets about 5 lbs of Purina Senior Feed each day. We also have her on Outlaw Feed’s flax supplement for shine and body conditioning. 🙂
Some folks may remember Frankie from when I consigned her to the 2020 Spring Sale, but after COVID-19 shut things down and postponed the sale several times I decided to pull her out of that auction and keep her to use her in our summer camp program through 2020. We are trying this again and are now offering her at the Simon Horse Company Spring 2021 sale!
Since we kept her and used her in our busy program, she has gotten even more riding experience with many different riders! This is a horse that is fancy enough to excel at a high level in any discipline but also has enough experience with enough beginner kids and adults that anyone can ride her and enjoy her in any way they want. Show her in pleasure at rated shows or just take her out on the trails. She is perfect for anything you want to do!
This is the kind of horse that I am legitimately hesitant to sell because she’s so wonderful, and I get asked a lot why I am selling good horses like her that we use in our riding program. The question “why are you selling her” seems to be everyone’s first go-to, and it’s a fair question to those not familiar with me or our program! We are not horse traders. We are a kids riding school. But I (Samantha Sansevere) and my little sister (Sienna Sansevere) have a blast training, marketing, and selling project horses together! It is so fun for us, and taking a horse that hasn’t done a lot and giving them all these amazing experiences so that they can go make someone else’s dreams come true is so rewarding for us. Plus, it empowers my little sister as a young female entrepreneur!
We are BLESSED to have a pasture full of incredible horses that we work with and train that are just like Frankie but are retired senior horses that have a forever home with us because of their age, medical needs, etc. Frankie is young, healthy, requires no maintenance, and was originally bought with the intention to eventually sell! She’s already been with us for over two years now and she’s ready for a family of her own instead of just being a small part of a big program. 🙂
We will use the spot that she leaves open in our program to give a home to a retired senior horse needing a job!
That being said, she is one that I would NOT be upset about taking home if, for some reason, she doesn’t sell on March 27th. I just love her and it’ll be a very emotional day!
DOUBLE REGISTERED HALF-ARABIAN & PINTO
Half-Arabian: SIA KHARIZZMAS KHIZZ (HAHR*1A377234)
PtHA: SIA KHARIZZMAS KHIZZ (149034)
Ridden by kids and adults at our busy riding school in English and Western riding lessons, horse camps, clinics, and classes!
This mare, known affectionately in the barn as “Frankie” or “Franklin,” is a registered half-Arabian pinto. When I bought her she came with the name Frankie, and it has just stuck. Normally I have no issue renaming horses and will give them goofy names that are usually food-related (see Macaroni or Tater Tot as an example) but the name Frankie just seems to fit her. I love calling her Franklin, even though it sounds a little silly.
As Miss Buffalo Rodeo, I rode her at events and she handled it great! I carried the giant Canterbury Flag at skijoring in 2020 with her on a very windy day and she was awesome.
She’s very well bred to be the kind of horse that can go in any direction — on her Arabian side, she’s got Khemosabi on her papers and goes back to Bask. On her APHA/AQHA side she is Mr Norfleet bred. She has a thick quarter horse type build and very cute markings. With a bald face and two blue eyes, she is very flashy!
- We’ve owned her for two years
- Super easy to catch
- Very sweet
- Very affectionate
- Loves Attention
- Respects fences
- Extremely low maintenance and easy keeper — doesn’t NEED grain but currently gets Purina Strategy or Purina Senior
- Her favorite treats are peppermint flavored treats (but not actual peppermints — she spits those out!), apple flavored treats, and carrots!
- Stays fat and shiny on just grass hay!
- She is fine left out in the pasture 24/7 or stalled! Sometimes when she’s first put into her stall she might call to her buddies but she settles in pretty quick. She has been stalled at night in recent months.
- Stands for vet, farrier, clipping, grooming.
- She’ll be body clipped for the sale!
- Rides western or English
- Great with cows — have taken her cow sorting at OutWest Arena and she never hesitated to go wherever I pointed her
- Rides great for kids, adults, and INFLATABLE UNICORNS AND DINOSAURS
- Rides in a plain 3-piece snaffle
- Rides bridleless with a neck rope
- Loads in a trailer great and with zero hesitation
- Very responsive to leg cues
- Side passes
- Cute turnaround
- Clean lead changes
- Leg yields
- Backs great
- Great stop
- Carries a flag
- Goes over, under, or through anything you point her at
- LOVES attention and affection!
- Very willing and wants to please
- When she is in heat she doesn’t get crabby or mare-ish, but I notice she is a little more high energy than usual. After a warm up she is back to normal though!
- Not a dead head— doesn’t take much to get her moving but she is very obedient and well trained!
- Has been ridden at busy events, like Skijoring at Canterbury Park
- Has a gorgeous slow pleasure trot but can also pick up the pace when asked
- Great out on trails alone or in a group
- Was ridden in horse camps during the 2019 & 2020 season in the arena and on the trails by all ages of beginner riders, mostly Western
- Very fancy and could excel in any arena
- Well exposed to guns, 4-wheelers, skidsteers, tractors, tarps, water, cows, pigs, goats, chickens, ducks, dogs, cats, and loud, crazy kids!
- Has been ridden in beginner level children’s jumping lessons — I think she LOVES to jump!! She has never hesitated to go over a jump!
- EXTREMELY easy to teach and fun to work with
- Very eager to please
- Will be used in a busy program for horse camps and riding lessons until the day of the sale
Frequently Asked Questions
Will you sell her prior to the sale? – No. 🙂 She is already consigned and cataloged, and we have made a commitment to Simon Horse Company to bring her to the sale that day, so that is what we are planning on! We have a lot of fun with marketing horses and bringing them to great sales like this!
Can we meet her before the sale? – We are trying to make appointments with people when possible, but between Sam’s full time radio job and full time riding lesson schedule that Frankie is already committed to almost every day leading up to the sale, it is hard to fit everyone in that is requesting appointments! We encourage everyone to come say hi and meet her on the day of the sale!
Is she safe for kids? – As you can see from the various photos and videos throughout this page of young riders of all ages riding her, yes. 🙂 She is forward enough for a kid that they do not get frustrated needing to kick and kick and kick to get any movement, but she will only give them the speed that they ask for.
Any quirks? – I am so incredibly picky with my horses and always have high expectations for them – I think higher than most people do! And I always try to be as honest as possible when selling a horse. No horse is perfect, even though many come close. 🙂 I am probably an oversharer, because most people just sell a horse and keep things short and sweet! BUT, I hope that the amount of detail and thought I put in to making sure that you know as much as possible about your potential new horse is appreciated by prospective buyers. With that being said, there is just ONE thing that annoys me about Frankie sometimes:
- Occasionally she paws when tied up to a wall alone without other horses around (she doesn’t do it while in cross ties). It is NOT bad at all, pawing is just my biggest pet peeve with all horses so I am hyper sensitive to it. 🙂 She doesn’t do it very often anymore, and generally only when she is tied up to the wall in an empty arena, but I still always want to share as much as possible about a horse when selling them so that their new owner feels like they know everything they need to. 🙂 When I first got Frankie, she used to get impatient while she was tied up and would paw a lot, but I have worked on this with her extensively over the last year and have tied her up all over our farm as well as to the trailer at events and she is much more patient now. 🙂 After spending Summer 2020 season being ridden in horse camps and being tied up next to a dozen other horses for extended periods of time, she is so much better now! She does seem to prefer cross ties more than any other method of tying and has always been quieter in those from the start – I leave her standing in the cross ties all the time and she is just fine. I have posted many videos of her in the cross ties showing that she is fine in them. 🙂 Sometimes she paws at her stall door when she sees us begin feeding grain to everyone in the barn, but we make her wait until she stops before she gets her grain!
