Redcap Little Gem Sale on behalf of owner
15.3hh 6yo bay Welsh x TB mare. Good conformation, floaty expressive paces, real genuine easy type in all ways.
Gem’s flatwork is well established. She goes nicely on the leg and is responsive. Balanced, uphill and a good over track. She works in a soft consistent outline with active transitions. She’s very supple and elastic through her movements. Gem produces a lovely leg yield, shoulder fore, counter canter and has just started to learn her lead changes. Gem would easily compete novice now and has done few prelim tests scoring mid 60%.
Gem is an absolute pleasure to jump. She is currently jumping 90cm tracks with scope to go up the levels. Not phased by fillers, difficult lines, doubles, trebles etc. She maintains a lovely rhythm jumping which makes her very easy to control. She is very careful and rarely has a pole. Gem is a genuine honest jumper and will try her best to get her rider out of trouble.
Gem's cross country is also fabulous. She has seen ditches, steps, trakeheners, skinnies , water etc she isn’t phased by any of this and will happily take any obstacle you point her at providing you are committed. Gem would make a lovely eventer. Gem has also hunted.
Gem also hacks out alone or in company with no issues. She can spook on the odd occasion. Gem is good to lunge, load, travel, clip, tack up, catch etc. She is up to date with vacs, chiropractor, dentist etc. No health issues. Gem is fully shod. Gem can live in or out. She isn’t a typical mare. Gem doesn’t kick, bite, bolt, nap and has no stable vices. Gem has attended many clinics, training shows and a few competitions where she has always remained well grounded. Gem can get overwhelmed by busy warm up arenas and be on her toes - she needs more experience in very busy warmups.
This mare is an absolute delight to work with... bear in mind she is 6yo so will need bringing on but she will make someone a very special allrounder. Gem will turn her hoof to any discipline. She would be best suited to a experienced teenager, grassroot eventer or competent adult looking to produce a top level horse. Plenty of videos and photos. Open to multiple viewing. 5* homes only need to apply as we won’t just sell her to anyone. Feel free to message with any questions or queries.
Open to vetting.
