Super Smart Irish, 14.2, 7yr old, Skewbald, Mare
Martha is a smart forward going mare with lots of ability, a little pocket rocket! She is uniquely marked and really stands out from the crowd!
Martha is a brilliant hunter, she hunted all last season with the North Cornwall and is now out Autumn Hunting with the Warwickshire. She is good with the hounds, stands perfectly at the meet and on point and does gates. She has a big engine and will go all day and keeps up with the horses although Martha can be strong when on the move but I haven’t bitted her up too much yet, so there are still lots of brakes to try! She would love to be out hunting a couple of times a week! Martha has also been out on Bloodhound exercise and to numerous funrides, which she loves!
I have XC schooled Martha a couple of times, jumping everything, water, ditches, steps etc. She has been to an eventer challenge and flew clear round her first Hunter Trial a couple of weeks ago at the Warwickshire Teamchase. She is good to hack and is a brilliant lead horse, riding and leading my other naughty event horse most times she goes out hacking!
She has been out to a few dressage competitons scoring 65+% and to some clear round SJ outings, isn’t phased by fillers and big arenas, but she hasn’t done a lot of SJ with me yet simply because this was the aim for over the winter! She has masses of scope, she now just needs to learn how to use it! With more training she would make a fantastic BS pony.
I brought Martha in the summer to produce as an event pony, however after spending the last few months laying the all important foundations it has become apparent that Martha will not suit the event pony job simply because she doesn't like the flatwork! She will and is capable of producing a test at Prelim but only if she really has too! She is not naughty in anyway she just because tense when asked to do flatwork and I do not feel it would be correct of me to keep producing her for a job that she will not enjoy or be competitive in! I therefore would like to find her home with someone who wants a fun, forwarding going pony to race across the countryside and jump the jumps! She would suit a competent teenager, small adult or strong boy!
Martha is fantastic to clip, catch, shoe, load, vet, bath, dentist etc. She is a lovely girl to have around and is very easy to do, the same out and about as she is at home and she loves to be pampered! She is always the first to put her head over the door in the morning or come trotting to the gate in the field. Lives in or out and turns out in a group or individually however she doesn’t like to be left on her own when at home so she wouldn’t suit being the only pony or in a yard where she could end up being the only one in/out.
Martha will only be sold to a 5* home who will keep in touch and love her as much as I already do!
Passed a 5 Stage vetting when I brought her in June.
Sold with her rugs.
