Izzy is a beautiful 14.3 blue and white mare. She’s 15 this time. Approaches any job with enthusiasm and honesty. Has been with me for 5 years and previous owner for 6. She has done camp, show jumping (including ESUK and Stoneliegh) dressage, hacking including major roads, beach rides, pleasure rides, hunted.
She is naturally fast moving and forward thinking. Would never buck rear or bolt, doesn’t spook. Works nicely on a light contact and is very responsive to leg, seat and hand, but not sharp.
Loves her jumping. Happiest up to about 85cm. Will trot quietly round a 50/60cm or fly round 75/85. Places nicely at prelim, would do a novice test with work, unlikely to be pinched by Carl Hester but you can join in and win some frillies. Hacks in any open space, fast but mannerly, couldn’t give a monkeys left foot about any traffic. You don’t need to be particularly confident, she’s brave enough for both of you, you just need to be able to ride, and trust her.
Easy to do in all ways, bit of a witch to clip but I just twitch her to do near her head and her legs and we’ve been fine. Loads and travels in anything. I joke she would travel by skateboard if you tied a haynet to your rear windscreen wiper, and I’m only half joking!
Ideal small adults horse as can be put down and picked up around all the adulting you have to do and she won’t kill you when you get back on. Would suit a capable teen. I love this little horse (and make no mistake she is very much a small horse not a pony) but am too heavy for her after 2 kids and bad arthritis. If she ever needs a retirement home I would happily buy her back but she is bored right now and needs a chance to be someone’s best mate.
She really dislikes small children. I have 2 and she will accept food from them but other than that she finds them yucky icky things who she would prefer didn’t touch her thank you. She does like a can of Dr Pepper tho, and spa music.
Izzy will bring all her tack and rugs as I would like to know she’s comfortable. ...Read full description
