    Empress is a very kind and easy to do mare who enjoys calm and kind handling as well as clear confident leadership.

    She is a sensitive thoroughbred so not a novice ride, but hasn't a nasty bone in her body and just wants to feel safe and to please.

    She raced for 1 season as a youngster and also did 2 seasons of polo but didn't really like it - she then lived in the field next to me for 2 years being hacked now and again. I took her on 18months ago and have enjoyed bringing her on and practicing some of the Intelligent Horsemanship strategies that I am very interested in.

    I think she is starting to become an brilliant riding club horse and has so much potential to give, but I have now returned to full time work so I feel she is being wasted. I'd love her move on to someone that can more time into her and enjoy her lovely way of being. Home absolutely more important than price so I am open to offers if I believe she will go to a forever home and reach her potential.

    Empress is currently professionally schooled 2 days a week and hacked lightly a further 2 days.

    She is working in a lovely balanced outline now and can hack out alone as well as in company. She will happily canter steadily in open spaces and turn round to return home and do the same, never hotting up or racing off. I'm told by my Irish Racing Vet that her father was a million $ winner, but the steadiness of her canter out on our nearby gallop suggests that she hasn't retained all those genes. Always ridden in a snaffle.

    She is more spooky on her own than with other horses out hacking and needs a confident rider to help her manage her nerves. She is used to roads and farm machinery. She loves to pop a log out on hacks, currently working nicely over poles in the school but definitely needs more work to conquer her dread of coloured jumps.

    Good for farrier, clip and vet - can be a pain to catch when the grass come through but we get there in the end.

    She has attended local trec classes and taken them in her stride, even when the hunt bolted past the gate at the last one!

    She has been out to some dressage competitions at Intro. She is very beautiful so she definitely impressed the judges on that score.

    I feel she would ideal for someone who may want to go to the local riding club once a month and take part in a bit of everything. Cross country would definitely be something she would take to like a flash.

    Lives out all year, with rugs in winter. Good doer and never really seems to get very dirty somehow! Up to date on vaccinations ,teeth, currently shod all round. Good with clippers, No stable vices. I haven't loaded her myself as we have facilities within hacking distance, but I bought her from the Polo yard next to me and she loaded for them every day.

    A genuine, honest sale -Please no novices or first time owners - some experience with either young or sensitive breeds would be required.

    Tack available by separate negotiation.
