My Daughter will be going to university soon and so therefore we need to find a loving home for our dear horse Balli. She is a stunning, very pretty Chestnut Mare with a flaxen mane and tail, full up 15.2hh, 15-year-old Registered Irish Sports Horse. Balli has been with us for over 2 years and is an extremely loving mare who likes to please. She is fully fit, having regular schooling and jumping lessons and competing regularly. We ride 4-5 times per week. Three nice paces, good lateral work including shoulder in, leg yielding etc. She is brilliant to shoe (only has fronts on), she goes every 8 weeks, bath, teeth, clip, trim, travels in a lorry or trailer. We travel her in tack too and she is perfect. We have a trailer, and we cross tie her which she prefers but she will also go in the trailer with a partition and with another horse. Her saddle is checked twice yearly and just recently done, and physio to check her over and do her back every 3 months, also just done. She is fully vaccinated and teeth done and due 26.05.22. She has no vices. She is brilliant when in season, if you lunge her whilst she is in season, she might be more forward and she is no different at shows.
Balli is an experienced horse, she loves to compete, she requires a competent experienced rider who enjoys a forward safe horse. She hacks alone or with company, brilliant with all traffic, safe to canter in open spaces, first or last, brilliant with water, traffic, dogs and all small animals, lives in or out. The one thing she does is she will scrape the ground now and again when tied up but if she has tack on generally, she does not do this. When she is stabled, she will scrape at the door, (not excessive) for her breakfast but will only do it to us not anyone else who is on the yard. If you use electric fencing it needs to be electrified for her to respect it. She can live in or out and can be on any bedding. She is happy to be in 24 hours per day in the stable in bad weather, in 2020 she was stabled for a full week due to the snow. You can turn her out in the field first by herself, but she prefers to be bought in first in the evening. Works well in a quiet or busy yard.
She is a brilliant doer. Gets on well with everyone. You can lead her in from the field at the same time pushing a wheelbarrow. If you go on holiday, you can get straight back on her and she is no different. We are all weather riders and ride in the worst of the weather, in pouring rain and winds up to 70mph and she is brilliant. We compete all year round more so in the winter.
She is Snaffle mouthed. She lunges well including poles and jumping on the lunge and she is excellent with voice commands. She does love show jumping 80-90 cm. She is unfazed by fillers and water trays flowers etc. She wears a gag but only on the first ring in show jumping as she can be slightly stronger.
She would ideally be suited to anyone who wants to have a go at all disciplines including Dressage, general schooling, SJ, XC schooling, Hunter Trials pairs, Long Distance Riding, Showing or just wants to enjoy hacking around the countryside or going to the beach. She has hunted in her previous home, and they said she was really good at this. We keep in contact with all her previous owners. We would love to keep in contact with you and receive videos and photos.
