Classy, bright bay, 16.1hh, 8yo , ☘️Irish mare. ISH green book
Rita has some great breeding, to include ‘watermill swatch’. ☘️☘️
Rita can be Grumpy in the stable by pulling faces , loves a cuddle when you have that bond . Stands to be washed and groomed , super loving in her own.
When ridden Rita is the kindest of mares. Never silly, very keen to please. Safe and sane ride, very reliable. Rita has had the same home since an unbacked 3yo and has been produced slowly and correctly.
Uphil and soft on the flat, with three attractive paces. Rita works in a natural, soft outline and is a leg in each corner, easy kind of ride. Easily do a prelim test dressage - she thrives on flat work
Rita enjoys jumping at a lower level. She has show jumped up to a meter and we feel this is where her comfort zone finishes. Would do a BE 80/90 with established rider . She likes to have fun and enjoy it.
Cross country is certainly Rita’s forte. She has schooled around open courses. Happily goes in and out the water, banks, ditches, hedges are no problem for her! Not strong or silly, she really enjoys the job.
Rita regularly hacks out alone as well as in company. Reliable in traffic, great in open spaces too. She’s the type of mare that really looks after whoever is on board.
Rita is only for sale as owner would like to jump at a higher level and doesn’t want to ruin Rita’s love for her job by pushing her too far. We feel she would suit someone who likes to take part in local riding club, or low level competing. Also, Rita has hunted two seasons and jumped absolutely everything asked of her, stands at meet and well mannered around hounds! She’s also been on fun rides several times and never put a foot wrong!
As good as she is she has been ridden by confident and established people and therefore we don’t think she would suit a total novice. She has been a competition horse and likes to get on with her job. We’d like to see her in an experienced home with someone just wanting a horse to enjoy.
Lives in or out, comes to call in the field. Loads on trailer or lorry and travels very well. Great for vet, shoe, dentist, and clip ( can be tickley under belly)
never sick or sorry.
She does have two very small sarcoids, one has recently been banned off. These are of no significance and do not affect her suitability for any desired purpose
