HorsesAll Rounders£ 2,300Dunhill D ( Dee )
Dunhill D ( Dee Dee) 16 h Bay mare. I have owned Dee for the last two years. She is a sweet kind hearted mare. Very loving has a strong character. She has exceptional yard manners and is a pleasure to have around.
Under saddle she is QUIRKY! she needs regular work and can be very sensitive. She is suited to one rider, once you have a bond with her she will do or try anything you ask of her but requires patience and time for this bond to be built. She has never done anything nasty when i have ridden her she has not bucked or reared in the time i have had her, she does however on occasion run forwards if spooked or is "trying it on" but is easy to stop and then you can carry on and still have a good ride as though nothing has happened. She also needs to be challenged if just riding around the arena for to long without asking her to work properly she will nap by finding things to spook at.
She works in a really nice framework and has very big strides for her size making dressage incredibly enjoyable with her. She also enjoys jumping I have only jumped her up to 90 cm as this is my comfort limit but I'm sure with the right rider she would excel. I took her XC schooling last year which i think was her first time and she did fantastically well giving every thing a go and made me feel really safe and looked after me and was very calm in an open space and stood at the trailer patiently while waiting her turn.
I have taken her schooling out in different places over the last two years but I have not competed however she used to compete before I owned her doing mainly unaffiliated showjumping. I have done lots of off road hacking with her alone and she was very well behaved, I do not like on road hacking and have only done this a couple of times in company and found that she was spooky towards traffic.
Dee was diagnosed with Kissing spines and has received injections to treat this which have so far been very successful and she is in regular work and is moving as she should and is very happy to work. Over 5 years ago she had a thoroughpin and she also has one capped hocked. Neither cause her problems and the vet has recently checked her over and happy she is completely sound. She is open to vetting.
Heartbreaking sale as i have a real connection with this mare but due to work commitments i cannot give her the amount of work she needs, i believe she will go really far with the right person who will give her the patience and commitment she needs, and i dont want to waste her.Experienced riders only. To got to 5* home only. Up to date with wormer and vaccinations. Home more important than price. If i cant find the right buyer she will stay with me.
