Dolly is a 14.2hh Trotter x Welsh mare, 8 years old, passported and chipped.
Dolly has literally been there and done in all, she is a highly well trained driving mare with a wealth of experience under harness, she has insane movement and is beautiful to handle in a cart or carriage. She holds herself beautifully and would turn heads in the show ring. She has been on all the big drive meet ups all over the country and driven through London. She would drive you to Appleby horse fair tomorrow, or take you into a show driving class without batting an eye.
Dolly is currently being schooled under saddle and showing great promise as a ridden showing/jumping horse, she is soft, supple and moves off your seat and voice, she holds herself just as beautifully under saddle as she does in harness. Dolly is safe to do in all ways, you can stick a novice or child on her at w/t/c and over fences, you can take them out on the roads and bridleways, walk, trot, canter and gallop in complete control without any issues, she can lead the ride or go behind or in the middle, she hacks out alone or in company. She goes through rivers, along main roads and is not phased by traffic.
Dolly is good to catch, load, shoe, groom, tack up, lead, clip, bath, ride and drive. She'll stand outside the pub hitched to the cart and stand all day tied. She is perfect for the farrier and shod on all four feet. Dolly is well dog broke as my dogs accompany us when hacking and riding at home.
Dolly is a powerful, flashy mover with 4 white feet and a star, beautiful dappled dark bay coat, she is a real head turner and would be a perfect ridden hunter. She has scope and is showing potential over fences.
Dolly is schooling classically currently and taking to it with an ease and confidence attributed to experienced driving horses. Nothing is too much to ask from her. She is so easy to ride and control. Everything about her screams 'Look At Me!'.
If you're looking for your next competition project here she is. She is fit, healthy and sound, easy to keep in or out, lives on grass and hay, no feed, her feet are good and she is no trouble to keep.
She is an amazing confidence giver, everyone who meets her falls in love with her, she is gentle and sweet on the ground, hop on her bareback in the river and ride her in a headcollar, ride her up from the field bareback, she is not herd sour and leaves her friends no problems, stands still to be tied up and fussed with, perfect to bathe and be hosed off. I haven't yet found anything that really phases Dolly, she just does it, no questions asked.
This mare is truly something special, her gentle nature plus powerful uphill movement makes her a real show winning candidate. She is worth her weight in gold.
She will be going out to arenas etc as restrictions lift here, the longer she is in schooling with me the more her price will reflect the education she has.
