For sale in Bristol - "Flo" is a stunning and and very kind mare and despite her tender years she is showing such maturity in her work - not to mention talent!
She has just turned 5yrs old, and is a full up 14:3hh Irish mare. She has beautiful manners and a fabulous attitude to her work. She would make a super family horse as she will hack out for hours could also affiliate with her flat work this year. We have LOTS of videos available.
"Flo" has been in training with us for over 18 months now and is such an easy and lovely horse to have on the yard and a great horse to train, and as a result she has a HUGE fan club!
She is ridden and trained by both able-bodied and Para riders.
With the right rider, this partnership could affiliate with BD this year.
She really does have the most beautiful paces, they are rhythmical and uphill and she has such a trainable brain.
She has taken well to her lateral work and is learning to lengthen and collect with ease. She has an established leg yield, shoulder-in and is just starting to work towards some baby half pass. She is nicely in front of your leg without being too sensitive.
She has a wonderful attitude to her work and will always wear a smile no matter what you are asking of her.
When it comes to jumping she is a very honest little mare, she isn't worried by fillers or water and on the XC course she has blown us away! ....she just tackles all new fences as if she has seen them all before. As you can see from her video, she is brave and bold and always very genuine.
She has perfect manners when ridden in open spaces and will happily stand whilst others canter past her, equally she will happily leave the pack if asked to return home alone.
She is snaffle-mouthed in all of her work.
We have been told by a few people who show Traditional Horses that she would make a great prospect for TGCA classes as she has full feather form the knee down and looks very flashy in the arena.
"Flo" is great to hack on our very busy roads where we see a lot of fast traffic as well as quarry lorries, farm machinery, buses and cyclists. We also hack past Alpacas, through tunnels and VERY close to trains! She will hack alone or in company, however, when she is on her own or at the front of a ride she is more 'lookie', she will never spin, leave the ground or be silly, but will take more of a look at things such as road signs, bins and paper bags. You just need to support her with your leg and she will take her confidence from you.
She is currently turned out in a mixed herd and is good to wash, worm and with the farrier and dentist. She is good to load and travel in both a lorry and a trailer.
