    Dolly is a 12 year old Thoroughbred grey mare (R o R) who has been with her current owners for 6 years.

    Her stable manners are impeccable and she loves people, attention and always aims to please when both handled and ridden. She is happy to stand for hours being groomed and fussed.
    She is not a novice ride as can occasionally be a little sharp and is forward off of the leg but is never nasty and always ridden in a snaffle with good brakes. She will hack alone and in company, in front or behind. She is great with traffic, children, dogs and currently rides through a small village where she is closely passed by farm machinery and buses and she doesn't bat an eyelid.
    Dolly understands and responds greatly to her riders’ attitude, body language, voice, seat, hands and leg. She is forward going and very quick to learn and needs a sympathetic rider to get the best out of her.
    She excels at flatwork, works in a beautiful outline and is very eager to please, with some consistent work and polishing off she would definitely excel within a dressage discipline. Her current rider has also started doing some jumping with her and she absolutely loves it showing lots of scope. She can complete a simple course of 2‘6” and with more work would easily jump higher.
    Dolly has had the last month of summer off due to her rider's university exams and is just coming back into simple work. She therefore needs someone who has the time to bring her back to her full potential and would be a perfect project for a more experienced rider.
    She has predominantly been kept at home in her owners stables/grazing but has spent periods at livery and riding establishments over the six years where she thrived on the routine and continuity.

    Her current rider has provided the following description:
    I have been riding Dolly for the last 15 months and she has been a pleasure to work with. She really enjoys her work and loves being around people. She works in a lovely outline, is forward off the leg and has lovely movement, I’m sure she would excel as a dressage horse. She responds very well to voice and works forward and round in a Pessoa and on the lunge. I have focused on her pole work with small jumps, she has a smooth and enthusiastic jump with scope to go higher. Dolly would reach her full potential with a more capable rider, as she can be a little sharp when she’s been out of work, however she is never nasty and her high spirits are easy to sit to. She is brilliant out hacking, being very relaxed in company but also happy to go out alone. I have also taught her two tricks!

    Videos and photos are available on request. Home is much more important than price for this much loved mare.
