WSH - Something New aka Suzannah/Little Bear/Suzie Bear
Where to begin with this special mare. One of the last to be bred from Welsh Sport Horse International, a combination of the esteemed and well known Pentaran and Marchell Studs.
By the late Welsh D, Erwfforch Dewin Direudus, the highest placed stallion by the SPSS and has yet to be beaten (information about this impeccable stallion can be found online and on the SPSS website), who has produced many desirable welsh sport horses who excel in many disciplines including eventing, dressage and showjumping (one of Suzannah's half sisters is owned by myself too, preparing to go BD this year.)
She is out of British Riding Pony Padrig Something Blue who’s breeding is no lesser than Suzannah's sire. Padrig Something Blue was bred from the famous and well sought after Culross Maid of Honour (winner in hand and under saddle at HOYS) and Lechlade Quince one of the most iconic riding Pony Stallions within showing.
So.. this is before I have even started on her many talents. Standing at 13'2 she is an 8 year old liver chestnut mare with four white socks and the most beautiful face. She is still owned by the stud and has come to me to find the perfect competition home for her (there aren't many competition homes in Anglesey!)
Within being broken in as a 6 year old this mare went Drag Hunting she was that sane. (Photos available)
Her movement is just as big as her 15'1 sister. A huge, balanced canter, the most expressive trot with a natural ability to extend. She has been carefully produced by only knowledgeable and experienced riders. She is working at novice level currently and has been out dressaging with me in the past month immediately being placed with comments regarding her movement.
I have numerous photos and videos of this mare jumping. Careful, bold without being hot, smart with the most beautiful bascule. She was ready to go BS last month but due to selling and limited transport to get my junior rider there we have been unable to achieve this. She has yet to spook at a single filler, we recently took her to Rectory Farm 6 weeks ago for her to go jumping round all the 90cm fences. It was her third time jumping since being with me. Comfortable with oxers, combinations, doubles, trebles, open sparse uprights etc. She is currently competing at 85cm and schooling 1.05.
Again, proving bold and confident cross country with photos and videos available. No issue with ditches, combinations, water, step downs, step ups etc.
All of the above carried out in the same fulmer snaffle bit that she came with. No reason as to why she is in a fulmer as we have no issues with steering, only as she came with it and is still happy in it. She works in a dressage saddle and a jump saddle with no issues.
She has to pee before she is caught so she is ready to go. She is an absolute saint and delight to handle. Fine for the farrier. Teeth and worming up to date. First time hacking out we took her on a B road to a local competition. I walked next to her and she didn't put a foot wrong other than when a huge hgv went past - a pat on the neck and she settled. Understandable for her first time.
She gets sunburnt on her nose.
She gets a bit footy if she doesn't have front shoes on.
I cannot stress how a new home will be vetted. This mare is close to my heart. She is an exceptional mare with the talent to go in any direction her rider would like to go. She is not a novice ride, she is not a first pony. She is a second or third COMPETITION pony. She will excel in eventing and would easily cope up to 100. I have seen this mare clear 1.15m with ease. She has some serious scope. The movement that she has is that of a much bigger horse. She is a very talented, special mare and as such deserves that from a home too.
I have so much information about this mare from her very beginnings. Many photos and videos available.
Comes with everything except for saddle - incl rugs and boots
