For Sale in Bristol "Holly" is a beautiful5 yr old, 13.1hh, Welsh Sec C X, Bay Mare
She was born with us on Xmas Eve 2010 (hence the name "Holly"). Her mum is a fully registered Welsh C Mare but i'm afraid we don't know the breeding of the Sire.
This lovely little mare has completely blown us away this summer. She was backed earlier last summer and then turned away and we have taken it very slowly with her. We have been amazed at her attitude to work but even more amazed at her ability.
Everything we have asked of her she has tackled with a smile, a level head and enthusiasm.
She is showing signs of 3 very balanced paces that are very uphill.....She has the most remarkably balanced canter, and her trot and walk are improving week by week.
She is just starting to work in an outline which allows her trot to really open up.
I genuinely believe this wee pony could have a super dressage career.
She runs well in hand and really shows off her paces.
We started working her over coloured and rustic poles last month and she is now happily popping over little coloured fences of 2'3".
She is also very confident over the XC fences she has seen, including barrels, tyres and a pallasade!
She also hacks out alone or in company and is used to seeing the very heavy traffic we encounter, not to mention trains, a stupid Rottweiler puppy and even Alpacas!
She will hack for hours!
She has always lived out, and currently lives in a mixed herd of horses and ponies. She is also used to being in a stable.
"Holly" really is showing huge potential as a very talented little allrounder, and she is ready to go out and start some showing classes as you can see from her pictures we think she will do very well in the show ring and i don't think it would be long before she could go out and do her first Walk/Trot test or maybe even a Pre-lim.
We are looking for a lovely new home for our wee "Holly", a home that will enjoy her and continue her education. We would love to follow her progress as the decision to sell her has not been taken with a light heart.
She is up to date with the farrier, dentist and wormer and her vaccinations will be started by us before she leaves us
