I am regretfully offering this tall, imposing mare for sale to a breeding home wanting to produce exciting and talented jumping horses. Originally purchased as a broodmare, she sadly lost her 2021 foal but returned back in foal first time this year. She has been scanned with a live heartbeat and is in foal to the AES Graded perlino leopard spot stallion GFS Fire and Ice for a dilute 2022 foal who will have a 50% chance of a spotted pattern too!
Tigger is six years old and stands at approx 17.1hh. She is vice free, easy to catch and with the farrier, she has lovely stable manners and although she enjoys her stable during the winter, she would happily live out with a rug. Tigger is a big powerful mare and although she has absolutely no malice and loves both the company and attention of people, she is not for an inexperienced owner as she is big, young and spirited.
She is up to date on vaccinations, teeth, feet, worming and is in excellent health.
This lovely mare is by Sligo Candy Boy, an Outstanding Irish Sports Horse Stallion By Balou De Rouet who has sired many exciting competition horses in Ireland competing in all three disciplines and whose young stock are starting to come out under saddle in competition and proving to be talented and hugely athletic. The Irish Sports Horse Society describe him during his second stage assessments as “…a very attractive modern sport horse. He has a quality in all paces with a light balanced canter. When jumping he has excellent reflexes, with good bascule.””He shows ample scope and looks very careful, obedient, responsive and willing.”
Balou de Rouet, his Sire, is a consistently popular stallion with an excellent temperament and movement with a powerful jump. In 2013, the year of Sligo Candy Boy’s Stallion testing in Ireland, Balou De Rouet was ranked 77 (WBFSH stallion list) in the world and the following year made a meteoric rise to 36th due to the successes of his offspring.
