Jessie is 13hh bay mare, 12 years old. We've had her for five years, we bought her as a green 7 year old for my then 8 year old daughter. She is a lovely mare, competed and placed all disciplines, placed second indoor 75cm SJ last time out despite having done very little competing this winter, active member of QPC for last two years - gone to two camps. She is 100% catch, shoe, load, teeth, groom etc etc. She is very pretty and always catches judges eye in WHP or fun showing classes - prettiest mare, child handler etc. Has won WHPs. Careful jumper up to 80cm but will be equally careful on the lead rein at 30cm! Cross country schooled and competed, bold over drops, ditches, water etc. Hacks alone or in group, in front or behind or leads off another horse. Currently turned out in mixed herd, never rugged but is shod.
She is NOT a perfect pony though and has two main flaws - one she can be incredibly lazy in the school and requires a LOT of getting going, but out hacking and at rallys, shows, camp she is fine. The second is that she can get distracted particularly at a couple of outdoor venues but this has improved with wearing ear bonnet or ear poms and a good bit of riding in. My daughter has stuck all her mates (beginner or otherwise) on her and she bears this with good will, my youngest (now 10) has competed her on the leading rein and off in various bits and bobs and she has been wonderful. The only other thing is that she will take advantage on the ground if she can in her quest for food. Took my daughter a while (grass reins for a season) to stop her lunging for cow parsley and occasionally pulling away to grass on the ground.
Price to include tack and a couple of rugs...Read full description
