16.2hh 11 year old Dun mare by Rainstown Hollow (TB) ex Grove Belle (ISH)
Cassie is a stunning looking horse who always turns heads and draws compliments. She is a talented and genuine mare who wants to please and has a wonderful attitude to work; she loves her job and is happiest when in work.
She has three correct and expressive paces, and is currently working well at Elementary with forward, through paces. Cassie has the ability to go a lot further than this . Last year she was competing at BD Novice with her teenage rider, being placed every time out with marks in the high 60’s. Unfortunately, she didn’t have the opportunity to do as much as she could have due to Covid restrictions and cancellations. Previously, they had been competing at Team Quest, and were consistently winning, qualifying for the Regional Championships in October 2020, where she was in the ribbons.
Prior to this, and with her previous owner, she was eventing at BE up to intermediate, and although her XC record was excellent, her SJ let her down on the higher tracks.
Cassie is a sensitive mare who thrives from building a trusting relationship with her rider and handlers; She is the perfect balance of a really talented mare but also a genuine and really kind horse who loves a cuddle, who is happy out competing or hacking on the buckle.
She is best suited to a quiet and sympathetic rider with good hands. She still loves jumping but we don’t think she is best suited to a purely jumping home. We would really like her to go to a forever home where she is kept busy in a varied and well loved environment.
She was produced professionally and has had only 3 homes since being backed (with 2 of them being professional, currently she is a teenager's horse and much loved family member!). She has lived both on busy event / show jumping yards and now in a private home with one other pony.
She is good to hack, will hack alone and in company, and is unfazed by traffic.
This is a genuine and very sad sale due to increased school commitments any potential buyer will be carefully vetted, and she will only go to a 10* approved home.
Cassie is the easiest of horses to do: regularly loaded and travelled by a nervous mum, she is good to box, catch, handle and shoe.
Clean limbed, sound, open to any vetting and references can be provided.
£15,000 ono - she comes with all her rugs, boots etc
Fairfax saddle (jumping and dressage) plus Fairfax bridle available by separate negotiation
