    Orla' was my first ever horse and I was a novice. I love her dearly but it's time to let someone else take the reins and love her like I do.

    Everyone meet my beautiful mare 'Orla' aka Oley!
    I've had the pleasure of owning Orla for nearly 2 years. Currently being professionally schooled & exercised to get fit!
    She's good to do in all ways. Will live in or out. Lives on fresh air although she is abit spoilt and has tea everyday! (No hard feed) she kicks the stable door at tea time.
    Orla Absolutely adores children & will stand all day to be groomed, bathed. Shes good for the farrier and enjoys the dentist!
    She walks straight onto a box or lorry no messing about and travels well.
    Orla will hack alone or in company go first or last. Nice steady canter in open fields, doesn't get silly.
    Will stand for you to mount.
    Snaffle mouthed at all times. Ridden on the buckle down the lanes. She's very forgiving.
    Excellent in traffic. Used to tractors, artic lorries, cars, vans and the quad bike.
    Orla doesn't mind a canter on the common with sheep however she's not overly keen on cows but she is getting better as she's on a farm and they're in the neighbouring field during summer.
    Orla loves hacking up the woods!
    2 riding instructors have also said they feel Orla would be great for dressage as she is a quick learner and moves beautifully.
    All riding abilities have ridden Orla from 3yr olds to the more experienced riders.
    I've only attempted to clip Orla once for hunting but she wasn't keen. She would let me do it but soon as the clipping lady took the clippers back she wasn't having none of it! I do feel in time though with patience she would be clipped no problem. I started to jump Orla last year. She works and moves beautifully in and out of the school. I took Orla to XC last year.
    Orla is the sort of girl you can leave turned out for weeks, tack her up and ride her away!
    I love this mare more than life and I want the PERFECT forever home for her.
    HOWEVER.....
    Orla can be nervous until you've gained her trust. She's not the sort of girl you can just move into a new place with new people and jump on her! She requires time to settle, to bond & gather her bearings. She's a sensitive mare who requires a quiet calm but firm rider.
    She needs a confident rider as she does feed off the rider. Although she was my first horse and she's amazing I do feel it's as she trusts me. I'm the longest home she's had so she will need to adjust to her new home & her mummy!
    She really is a dream ONCE she knows you.
    Nervous rider + nervous horse = diaster! She's a lot of horse.
    Also please note that Orla has to be kept in work due to her patella popping. The vet has seen her over this 4 days ago and has said she's sound. Need to build muscle. Orla passed a vetting not that long ago. I did sell Orla not that long ago but she was back with 4 days. The lady felt she was too much for her. Orla has never reared or spun. She has bucked twice with the lady who bought her (never bucked with me during the 2 years) for this reason I feel Orla is no longer suitable for a beginner/novice. So strictly no novices or beginners. She also kicks the stable door....which drives me bonkers!
    As there's so much to say about this girl please phone for more information. I will be a honest as I can be. I won't let her go to just anyone either.
    She's shod all round, teeth, back and vacs upto date.
    Passported and wormed. Will pick all 4 feet up.
    freezemarked with Farmkey
    Orla flew through a vetting about 6-8 weeks ago.
    She's 6yrs old. Currently standing around 15.3hh but should make 16hh.
    Videos available on request & photos
    No loans, payment plans. Serious enquiries only please. Homes WILL be vetted. I'd also like to stay in touch with new owners.
    Based in herefordshire hr6.
