Exceptionally well bred Percheron mare
For sale on behalf of client. Alize de la saulaie 17.2hh reg Percheron ride and drive mare. Imported from France. DOB: 16/04/2010. Iron/dapple grey mare. Passed 5* vetting in September last year. Calm and kind nature. Up to date with farrier, Chiro, vet, dentist, worming and vaccinations. Good to handle, bath, catch, load, travel, vet etc. Turns out with mares and geldings, isn't top or bottom of the pecking order. Lived out her whole life but does stable if needed. Has been used as a carriage driving horse for both single and double but hasn't been driven since August 2015. Was used to work alongside youngsters learning to be driven. Very easy to harness up and drive, wouldn't take much to get her back into it. She was backed as a 4 year old and intermittently hacked out during her driving career. Started being ridden full time in September 2015. Alize came to me in July to further her ridden education and turn her into a plod along, chilled out hacking horse so that is what we have done. Hacks out alone or in company, in front or behind but does usually end up at the back! She rides along on the buckle and doesn't mind if riders are unbalanced etc. She can be ridden by novices (as young as 9yo) but due to her size there must be some confidence in place! Always snaffle mouthed. Has popped a few x poles and logs but obviously isn't built for jumping! When a contact is established she will work down onto the bit and with a little practise will produce a nice little dressage test. Alize would be perfect for someone wanting a laid back, arm chair ride to potter about the countryside, do pleasure rides, beach rides etc but could equally go back to driving, turn her hoof to hunting, have a go in a riding school or just be a brood mare! Alize is a wonderful girl that someone will be very lucky to have. Although Alize is a very gentle girl her size must be taken into consideration by potential purchasers. Open to vetting and multiple viewings. £3500. Call Katie on 07540899304 to discuss suitability.
