Calamity Jane SOLD
If you’ve been following our page, you already know Janie’s story. If not, go check out our blog post!
She’s come a long way in the last year!
Janie is a grade mare. She’s been vet aged at 14 years old and stands a stout 15 hands.
Janie is now a productive member of society, albeit a bit of a spoiled girl. Janie lunges, stands tied, loads well, stands for vet and farrier, is great for fly spray/fly mask/blanketing, loves baths, is a fairly easy keeper, lives out 24/7, is middle man on the totem pole, gets along with mares, geldings, donkeys, cows, and youngsters. Loads and hauls well. WTC under saddle, rides bitless or with a snaffle, good on trails or in an arena, but does do best with a buddy on trails. No buck, bite, bolt, rear, kick etc. UTD on vaccinations, farrier, chiro, teeth floating, current negative Coggins. Janie is NOT for a beginner at this time as she does have some quirks. Her ideal home would be with someone who rides consistently or someone with time for a project. $2000 obo
Britt is currently on consignment with us. She stands at 15 hands and is finishing up a tuneup with us. While she is still green, she is WTC under saddle with good ground manners. No buck, rear, bolt. Stands for tacking/untacking, baths, fly spray, vet, farrier, but does need some more work with her hinds. Sound barefoot, UTD on Coggins. She does have a few quirks that we are happy to discuss with potential buyers. Britt is a very athletic mare with a lot of potential to go any direction. Britt does need a confident intermediate to experienced rider.
Helms Hill Farms is proud to offer Jackson for your consideration! Jackson is a 13 year old grade chestnut overo gelding standing at 15.2 hh in on consignment. Jackson stands tied, stands for vet and farrier, stands to be groomed, tacked up and mounted. Loads and hauls well, lives out 24/7 (does well in a stall if needed), and has great ground manners. He is low man on the totem pole and gets along with mares, geldings, or a mixed herd. Easy to handle, can be harder to catch if pastured with one that’s hard to catch. Not spooky, used to tractors, fourwheelers, dogs, and farm equipment. No buck, bite, rear, kick, bolt, crib etc. Jackson has two brand new front shoes on, courtesy of Raymer Performance Equine, and does do best with shoes as he’s got tender feet. Jackson does have two blue eyes and a bald face so he does need UV protection on sunny days (fly mask). Under saddle, Jackson is very much a “we’ll get there when we get there” laidback kind of guy. He’s not cut out for speed, so no he won’t make your kid’s next barrel horse. Stands to be groomed, tacked, and mounted. Rides best bitless, but will ride in a snaffle. Great out on trails or in an arena, alone or in a group. Easy walk/trot, a little stubborn on the canter but will do it with encouragement. Jackson was previously a lesson horse and has belonged to an 11 year old for the last year and a half. Can be a little barn sour when riding out alone, nothing unsafe, just tell him to move out. Jackson’s ideal home would be someone who loves to trail ride and enjoy the scenery! An advanced beginner can handle him.
UTD on farrier, teeth, massage, current negative Coggins in hand. Located in Lincolnton, NC. $3500
Goose is a coming two year old (5/6/2020) blue roan AQHA gelding. He’s out of Funny Pumpkin Gal, a 27% Blue Valentine mare, and by Reno Royal Blue, an 87.93% foundation bred stallion. Goose loads, leads, ties, stands for baths/grooming/farrier/vet, and is lunging WTC. Goose should mature to 15-15.1 hh and is built like a tank. He’d make a fantastic roping, barrel, or ranch prospect as he’s shown quite a bit of natural agility and cattiness. He’s got a very in-your-pocket personality and is very well mannered. We are waiting on his AQHA paperwork to come back. $3500. Delivery available.
Forget the Cadillac, we’ve got the Bentley!! Helms Hill Farms is proud to offer Bentley for your consideration. Bentley is a 10 year old grade Tennessee Walker gelding. He stands a stocky 15.1 hh. Bentley stands tied and in crossties, stands for vet and farrier, stands for baths and grooming, to be tacked up. Bentley loads and unloads like a dream on everything from a straight load with a ramp to a step up slant load. Lives out 24/7, gets along with everyone, is low man on the totem pole, and a fairly easy keeper, no maintenance required. Currently barefoot, but did have front shoes for tougher terrain. Not food aggressive and very respectful of personal space. Bentley has impeccable ground manners, lunges well off of vocal cues, and is very smart. Bentley has a fantastic, extremely smooth, ground-covering gait. He does need a confident rider, at least intermediate experience, as he does have a large motor. Bentley is a sensitive horse, so he’s not a good fit for a timid or inexperienced rider. No buck, rear, kick, bolt. This is not your easy-going husband horse. This is your big motored, let’s get somewhere horse. Bentley can be harder to catch if pastured with more dominant horses. If pastured alone or with other “low man” horses, he’s usually fine. Bentley would be a fantastic endurance or competitive trail prospect or just a flashy trail horse! He’s a very sweet boy and absolutely the most willing to please guy. UTD on vaccinations and current negative Coggins in hand.
TC Black Valentine “Marshall” SOLD
Helms Hill Farms is proud to offer TC Black Valentine aka Marshall for your consideration!
Marshall is a 4 year old blue roan AQHA registered gelding standing at 15 hands with a little more growing to do. (Rider in pictures/video is 6’2”) Great ranch lines on top, with Hancock and Blue Valentine being major names, and some pleasure and cutting breeding on bottom, with names such as Zippo Pine Bar and Poco Bueno.
Marshall is WTC under saddle, picks up both canter leads, lunges well off of verbal cues,
He gets along well in a group, but is low man on the totem pole. Stands tied, to be tacked, for mounting/dismounting, for baths/fly spray, and for vet and farrier. He currently wears front shoes. Crosses creeks, ditches, and bridges with no issues.
UTD on all vaccinations, farrier, and deworming. Current Coggins in hand.
Marshall is still green, but has not offered a buck, rear, bolt, or kick. Not spooky. The only vice we’ve found is that occasionally he’ll paw when bored or impatient. He’s been ridden English and western. He is a slower ride. He’d be perfectly happy walk along on trails but will trot and canter when asked. Very comfortable gaits with easy steering.
Well suited to trails, ranch work, or even the hunter ring. Was exposed to mounted shooting previously. He is not suitable for speed events, so no, he won’t be your next barrel horse.
This is a very solid-minded 4 year old and it takes a lot to phase him. However, he is not suited to a beginner or a child due to his age. A confident intermediate could handle him easily. He would be best suited to someone who has the time to keep him in a consistent schedule as he matures.

Tradewinds Jericho SOLD
Helms Hill Farms is proud to offer Tradewinds Jericho for your consideration!
Jericho is a 5 year old registered Percheron gelding standing at 18 hands. Yes, he really is that big. He is black going grey, so he will not stay this cool color forever. He is broke to ride and drive single.
Jericho is a little green due to his age, but is a gentle giant. He is easy to catch and lead, but does know his size so not for an inexperienced handler. Jericho stands very well for the farrier, no stocks required, and has impeccable feet, especially for a guy his size. He is 100% sound and barefoot.
Jericho rides english or western, stands to be groomed, tacked, and mounted, even from the ground (if your hips stretch that far).
He’s great out on trails, not a huge fan of riding out alone but will do it. Jericho is currently walk/trot under saddle. His canter is very green and does need consistency with an experienced rider.
He loads and hauls well, though he does need a tall trailer. Easy traveler. Zero buck, kick, bite, rear, crib etc.
Jericho does well pastured and stalled, and currently lives out 24/7. He is fine to live by himself or with geldings. He can be flirty with just mares. He is a more dominant guy in the pasture, mainly due to his size. Not aggressive in the slightest. Stands for blanketing, bathing, grooming etc.
Jericho can be a little pushy at feeding time, but listens well to a simple correction. He is a fairly easy keeper, no maintenance required.
Jericho would make an excellent fox hunting prospect, trail horse, or tune him up and use him as a carriage horse. This guy travels well and is very brave in new situations and environments.
He is very personable, loves attention, and is a very in your pocket kind of guy.
Good with other horses, donkeys, cows, and farm equipment. Not spooky, nothing really phases him.
Jericho is not for a beginner at this time. He would do best with at least an intermediate rider for the time being, or an intermediate rider working with a trainer.
UTD on everything (dental, farrier, vaccinations).
Helms Hill Farms is proud to offer Marge for your consideration. Marge is a 10 year old 15.1hh bay tobiano Gypsy X mare. She’s a very stout gal with beautiful coloring and very nice feathering. Marge stands for the farrier and has impeccable, solid feet and is barefoot. Marge also stands for the vet, stands tied, cross tied, to be tacked up, and mounted. Marge lunges well, loads well, gets along in a herd, and is a very easy keeper. Good ground manners but can be pushy at feeding time. Marge is WTC under saddle, however she is also one of the laziest things on four legs and would much prefer a life of leisurely trail rides. She requires a bit of encouragement to trot and a lot of leg to canter. No buck, kick, rear, bite etc. 100% sound. Out on trails, Marge is very brave and very safe. Nothing bothers this girl: tractors, ATVs, dogs, cows, water, etc. She will lead or follow. She will ride English or western. Her neck reining is very rusty though her leg cues are solid. Marge is also broke to drive, though she would need a refresher as it has been a while since she was driven consistently. Best suited to an intermediate rider. Marge is an incredibly personable mare. Lots of personality, loves attention (a bit of a diva if she’s not getting the undivided attention she deserves). She is not a typical mare-ish mare. You could not ask for a sweeter, more trustworthy trail partner!
