HorsesAll Rounders£ 6,500Helona
Voltaire X Concorde, 16hh, 12 year old chestnut mare.
Versatile school mistress. Forward going, gentle and kind. Helona is talented at everything she does. Exceptionally safe and trainable. Thrives off her work and is always looking to please. Very sad sale, will only let her go to a loving home.
I had a very nasty fall competing at 1.10m on a 14hh pony. My nerves and confidence were shattered. Helona has been my confidence giver and partner over the last few years. Also helped me move onto horses. We have done a lot of flat work together as it forms the basis of a good double clear round and also a high dressage score.
As you can see from Helona’s BSJA record ( or lack of!). I haven’t gone straight out competing. But have been regaining my passion and love for horses. Helona has been my way back through doing:
Flat Work - Helona has 3 lovely paces. Canters in a nice rhythmic pace and also does flying changes.
Hacking - Out alone or in company, through woods, traffic and open spaces - The South Downs Pass. Helona never fizzes up, she is a pleasure to take out.
Cross Country- Brave, bold, fun and safe. Helona keeps the same pace throughout.
Show Jumping - Extremely scopey and careful. Helona knows and enjoys her job. Very forgiving, always helps the rider out. She has easily jumped around 1:20m at home. I’ve only recently got my competition nerves under control. Have been competing Helona in Discovey classes, getting double clears. She is always impeccably behaved at the shows.
Helona is uncomplicated in every way. Good on the ground: with the farrier, dentist, clipping and loading etc. Loves being groomed, spoiled and a fuss made of her.
Helona is sweet natured, honest, versatile and extremely talented in all disciplines. looking for a loving home were the rider wants to have fun. While also knowing that they are riding a genuine sound and safe horse, that is capable of progressing up the ranks. I have enjoyed building up a partnership with her.
