Mary is a super smart sensible full up 15h, 6 year old, piebald cob mare with a superb quiet temperament. She is a lovely stamp, being nicely substantial without being too heavy, she’s more of a light weight, athletic cob. She is a great size for both adults and teenagers to ride, so would make the ideal mother/daughter share. She is beautifully marked and very pretty, she definitely catches the eye where ever she goes with her striking looks and her honest kind eye. She has excellent conformation, straight movement and is blemish free. She is real quality and would be a real asset in the show ring as she is very correct. She is a lovely alrounder who enjoys her work and has a go at everything; she is always a very happy girl and loves to please.
Mary works nicely in the school; she has 3 correct balanced paces and works in a lovely soft outline. She is a very nice moving cob with lovely engaged active paces. She is a comfortable ride with a nice stride. She is a lovely medium speed who is nicely responsive off the aids but not at all sharp. She works very well between hand and leg and gives a nice feel in the contact. She is snaffle mouthed with a lovely soft mouth. She has been ridden by a range of different riders from competent novices to more experienced riders. She has been very correctly produced and has much more to offer with a little finer tuning so for this reason she isn’t suitable for a novice, plus I feel she is too good for a novice. She is safe sensible ride who is very willing and trainable. She has started lateral work and does a lovely leg yield each way. She is ready to go out at preliminary level dressage and has the potential to progress through the levels as she is very trainable, athletic, has good natural paces and works correctly from behind.
Mary enjoys to jump and makes a good shape over a fence. He is a very honest and genuine type and always tries. She’s no world beater or next top show jumper but she likes to have a go and is a lot of fun. She has jumped around 80 cm courses with ease filling her rider with confidence. She happily jumps over coloured fillers without looking at them. She looks after her rider when jumping and will happily trot over a small cross pole. She jumps in a lovely rhythm and doesn't rush into her jumps or get strong or silly. She would be the ideal type to take to riding club activities and clinics as she loves her work and is uncomplicated and sensible. She also enjoys xc and has been schooling on a couple of occasions. She jumps all kinds of fences including ditches and into water. Again she isn’t strong or silly and she waits around very calmly for her turn.
Mary is a super hack; she happily hacks out alone and in company. She is excellent in traffic, she has crossed ‘a’ road roundabout and will patiently wait until it is clear to cross and isn't fazed by lorries passing her etc. She has been used to nanny less experienced horses out in traffic. She is great in open spaces and regularity hacks out in a group of horses and will canter in any order without getting strong or fizzy. She also regularly hacks out alone in open country side and gives a beautiful ride. He has been on long 10 mile hacks and pleasure rides where she has crossed rivers, jumped logs, crossed bridges etc all in a calm manner. She would be a great pleasure horse for hours of exploring the country side on and the ideal horse to take on horse riding holidays.
Mary has an amazing temperament. She is very quiet to handle with manners to burn. She is also very interactive with her handler and forms a string one to one bond. If you scratch her neck she grooms you back- she’s a very loving girl. She is a very easy girl to have around, she is excellent in all ways to handle, and is regularity handled safely by children. She loves people and will stand for hours to be brushed and pampered. She leads like a dog and isn't fazed by anything. She happily lives in or out and mixes very well with mares and geldings or equally turns out alone next to others. She is a super girl to have around, a real yard favourite.
Mary must go to a 10* home where she will be loved and cherished. She would make an excellent mother/daughter share horse. I could also see her exceling as a dressage horse as she really does move well and stand out. She would also make a cracking low level riding club alrounder as she is good at all disciplines. She would also be more than happy as a happy hacker/ pleasure horse as she does love her hacking and exploring. She really has so much to offer someone and will be your best friend. I would just like her to go to a knowledgeable home and to a rider not a passenger as she is too good to be pulled around and kicked. I think a lot of this girl....Read full description
