Horses for Loan£ 18 yrs 9 mthsColoured
FOR LOAN.... 14.2 hh (ish) 8 1/2 yo Coloured Mare.
Precious Sapphire (Saffy) has been with her current loan home for 12 months and has been competing in Pony Club events for the past 2.5 years and enjoys SJ, ODEs, cross country and hacking. Saffy can comfortably jump 90cm with minimal warm up and competently jumps 100cm (with potential to go higher). She's a very honest girl and will give anything a go! She’s not spooked by fillers, hedges, water or homemade jumps - point her at a jump and she will give it a go!
Saffy was professionally backed with Felicity Harper near Lambourn and has been lunged, long lined, schooled and hacked (both alone and in company) and not done anything questionable and doesn't seem to have a bad bone about her (and I've had her since birth). Saffy seems to really enjoy working so a home looking to hack or compete is essential.
Saffy has a sunny disposition and is always happy to see 'her people'. She follows us round the field when poo picking or visiting and is more than happy to be groomed and fussed. She's forward going (not a ploddy cob at all) and I think someone could have a lot of fun with her. She's well put together and has good paces. Saffy has been to shows and competitions and is good on the ground, she isn't fazed by other horses and the busy environment. She has enjoyed cross country, show jumping and general showing as well as some dressage too (never scored below 60 in novice or prelim).
Saffy is up to date with jabs, feet and teeth and is good for all of those things. She's bare foot and has never had shoes on. She’s good to catch, travels and loads well (both trailer or lorry sometimes with the bribe/reward of a mint) and has seen all traffic as she has grown up on a working farm so she doesn't bat an eyelid at anything she has encountered so far.
Saffy has been a bit tricky at times to clip but take it slow and calm and she’s fine.
Saffy likes regular work and can work every day or once a week. She doesn't buck, bolt, or rear and isn't nappy. Saffy has a very soft mouth and is forward going, she certainly isn't a 'kick along' pony and so isn’t suitable for a novice or beginner. Saffy likes a rider to take the lead so confidence is essential.
Saffy could be a forever pony and is looking for a long term home, she’s coming back to me because her current rider friend has sadly outgrown Saffy.
Saffy comes with full wardrobe including saddle, bridle and rugs and is available for loan as a working horse, not as a brood mare. She would suit a teenager or adult looking for a partner in crime to have some fun with.
Based in Oxfordshire.
