    This mare will be 8 years old on the 1st of October 2017. She is beautifully natured in the field, no aggressive traits at all. Respects tape and was untouched roaming free until aged two and a half. This is an advantage as it allows the horse to fully develop natural balance, hardiness and hence decreased likelihood of bruising from stones or uneven ground etc.


    This horse is only for sale due to the death of my children's father in July. She is a highly bred horse (sister to a horse whom I think was eighth in the Beijing Olympics - Eventing) She is extremely willing, forward, with a long stride, very floaty and easy to sit on. She needs to be in work about five days per week and I can no longer do this due to my current situation. She is being ridden at most three times per week now and represents a fantastic opportunity for someone with ability.

    She is extremely athletic and scopey. She has had a lot of instruction in dressage basics, but due to my having an additional, unexpected baby, she has not jumped. However, she has been free jumped and was certainly the most athletic that I have ever personally seen.

    She works absolutely correctly on the lunge, My focus is to increase straightness with every ride and hence that is how she has been ridden.

    She is not at all spooky and is a brave type. No sarcoids, no windsucking, wood biting, or anything of that sort.

    Excellent to trim, never been shod. Was travelled often as a three and four year old, but has not travelled since five as I had another child and my partner had cancer at that time. She would take half an hour in my estimation, to correctly and kindly load for the first five or six times. Obviously, she has also flown and has caused no problems in any way travelling in the past.

    This horse has always lived out and I do not want her to go to a livery yard where she stands in, has a few hours turn out and goes on a walker. She will be sold to someone with enough proper turnout or a professional who can manage horses.

    She was never intended for sale and I want her to be happy and live as a horse should. I would like her to go to a competent rider, someone with balance and enough feel to perform leg yielding exercises correctly. This is what she is used to. Although, she has not been competed due to events in my life, she would easily compete in showjumping, dressage or eventing.

    Her sire. Pintado Desperado was a very well known eventing sire in New Zealand. Herocity was a T.B. of high quality, standing in New Zealand, Australia and America. Her dam was also half warmblood. In case anyone wants to know to that extent, the dam was Herocity x S.M. Merlin.

    I realise that many people in the U.K. will not be familiar with this N.Z. breeding, but this is a horse like no other and you will not be disappointed.

    Her asking price is less than her importation costs and she would be an excellent investment for a talented rider.

    Due to the fact that my life is rather stressful right now, I have no film of her, but if you are a significant distance from the Surrey/ Sussex area, I will try my best to produce something.

    I'll try to get some more photographs over the next week, as she had moved on since these were taken. Last ones at present, show how I backed her and before she was broken. She is about 16.1, possibly a bit taller as she has long legs, now totally grey in colour.

    Please text if there is no answer and I will call you back, as I work full time.
