Lucy (Willabelle - Wanninger x Old Edition) is a 9 year old, bay, Hanoverian mare.
Lucy is absolutely stunning to look at and a delight to ride! Competing at Elementary level on the flat; her strengths include demi-pirouhette in trot (full in walk), fantastic leg yield/half pass, traverse, renverse, shoulder in, counter canter and decent collection in all paces.
Lucy has popped fences with ease and will be one to watch on the dressage, SJ or event circuit. She is jumping 1m tracks at home and out training, and went to a higher level cross country, jumping ditches, steps, corners and into water without batting an eyelid!
We are hoping to event Lucy this year, so we aren't in any rush to sell her and she will only be going to a perfect home. For Lucy, because of how talented and 'extra' she is, we are looking for a very competitive, performance home, where she will be challenged both on the flat and jumping. An eventing home with someone who wants to take her up the levels would be ideal.
Lucy hacks alone and in company but we would rather she went to a home where she would predominantly be kept and ridden in company. Lucy prefers to be in work and can be hot to ride if on limited turnout, but is quick to settle.
This is an extremely special horse, and she's our pride and joy, but she is a hot horse so needs a competent rider. When you have her, she will do anything for you, and she was just the most amazing, fun horse to take cross country schooling and to fun rides, as well as to jump at home. Lucy likes being in full and heavy work and can be quirky, especially after a break, or if she has been kept in too much.
Lucy is lovely on the ground, so cuddly and friendly, easy to clip, shoe and catch. Turns out with mares and geldings of all shapes and sizes. Luce gets fat from fresh air so we have her on a constant diet and turned out all year round. We never have her in anything thicker than a medium weight. Originally, she had been bad to load, this is no longer an issue (we have footage of her loading herself) but may regress slightly in a new home so worth mentioning. We just fed her on the box and she loved it! Luce thrives in a herd but has been in smaller groups, we don't want to sell her to somewhere she will have individual turnout.
With her incredible breeding and conformation, she would make an incredible broodmare. She takes all of the little ones under her wing and is the kindest horse in the field. Luce cut her leg in November 20, and because of the weather and mud, she had over a month on box rest to keep it clean. She was a delight the entire time and stood like a saint for the vet to flush and bandage. This has left a small mark on the inside of her right fore, but she wasn't even lame on it at the time, and has never been since.
Lucy's price will increase with the more we do with her, and we are certainly in no rush to sell her, please only competent and knowledgeable homes, she is a warmblood with stunning breeding and we are ideally hoping for a competitive home for her....Read full description
