Avriel is a stunning 14 yr old 16h chestnut mare who has bags of energy and loves speed. She will run for miles and has a bold, scopey jump. She has lovely stable manners and is easy to do on the ground. Avs will live in or out, she currently shares a field with a large group of mares on a working farm so is used to noise, dogs, sheep and children. She is great out hacking, behaves in traffic and isn’t phased by lorries, tractors etc. She hacks down busy main roads and will go past petrol stations and waits at traffic lights or crossings. Avs is good with the farrier (shoes on the front), dentist, vet, and enjoys being pampered. Out hacking she can be ridden in a snaffle but she needs something stronger for the beach, open fields. XC etc. She prefers company and can be a little spooky on her own but just needs a confident, calm rider for reassurance. She is a typical chestnut mare at times and can pull faces but she is never nasty.
One area however that Avs really doesn’t like is the school and this is the reason why we are selling her. She will buck, rear and nap when asked for trot or canter as she gets very tense! In the past she has competed and won at 1.25m (videos available) so it is not lack of ability she would just prefer to be jumping hedges and ditches.
Avs would be best served in a hunting or hacking home as she is strong, energetic and fearless. She isn’t suitable for a novice as she forward and strong, but she is a good girl who would thrive in the right home with the right person. Read more
