16.3/17hh 5yr Old. Professionally broken last year and then turned away to grow and mature. Back in work now a few months now at this stage and progressing all the time. Tara is a lovely mare to have around, lovely to have on the yard. Easy to do everything with. Loves her cuddles. Quiet in all ways. Stands to be mounted, tacked up, good to turn out, catch etc. Isn't silly if she has had a few days off no need for lunging before hopping up. Clean vet cert last week. Absolutely no vices. This is a Quality mare that was bred to go to the top and that is exactly where she will go with the right owner. Superb straight paces, big scopey jump and a great brain to go with. Stunning to look at and is an ideal Event mare. She would also excel in showjumping or as a superlative all-rounder. Tara is a responsive but sensible ride hasn't put a foot wrong since she came back into work. Her flat work is not starting to come together. She is a big horse so we have given her time to find her balance on the flat. Obviously not for a complete novice as still needs producing further and to start going -out and about. Fabulous loose and straight paces for dressage and a scopey and athletic jump for showjumping and cross country. Inquisitive and curious personality showing her to be brave to take on new lessons and experiences.This mare has a wonderfully sweet temperament.

(videos taken a while ago at this stage. She has progressed more now. Will try and get some new videos in the next few days.)
Tara is by Lancelot out of a Supreme Leader/Deep Run mare. These top National Hunt thoroughbred lines are now hard to come by.
She hacks alone and in company.
