Milly is a 15 yo Connie x Warmblood who is fabulous out hacking, both alone and in company. Doesn’t mind being first or last or being left behind. Has been hacked out by an 11 year old and was perfect.
She will do as she’s told but you have to ask her - she’s a mare after all! Similarly she’s teaching my 3 year old to ride and is wonderful and patient. Has never bolted.
She does jump and I’ve jumped up to 80cm on her however you do have to ride her over a jump. I have anxiety and so have had quite a few falls but those on the ground have always been honest that it’s my fault and I’m telling her to stop. With a confident rider she’s great. I haven’t jumped her since December as she had an off day where we couldn’t get her over anything, but I lunged her over a small cross today and she loved it.
You can leave Milly for weeks and then get back on her and she’ll be the same! Great to clip, comes to the gate to be caught, follows you around like a big dog in the field, has been lead by my 3 year old! Good to tack up and often falls asleep whilst being shod!
Milly’s awkward parts:
She has bar shoes on the back. Her previous owner says this was purely for support and she doesn’t actually need them but I’m not about to take them off and risk it. I got vet out just to check who said they “haven’t seen her recently for this problem and she looks really well” which leads me to believe it was injury related but I really don’t know any more. She’s had physio who thought she was tight but fine, flexion test was perfect. I have her on tumeric just in case.
She also has sweet itch, but will come with 2 x premier equine rugs and bathe her in a deosect solution once a week during summer will keep her right.
I’ve tried to be as honest as possible, I’d like the asking pricing including tack but home is honestly far, far more important....Read full description
