Beth is a very pretty 15.1h 7 year old black irish mare. She has a beautiful head with a real kind eye and gorgeous white blaze, combined with 3 white socks she really catches the eye. She is a super middle weight stamp with a good amount of bone and is the perfect size for lots of riders to enjoy, she will carry a fair amount of weight and takes a tall rider also as I’m almost 6ft and don’t look a miss on her. She has clean legs, straight movement and is blemish free. She is the ideal pleasure horse, happy hacker or hunter/ fun horse. She has a very sensible temperament and is lovely to be around and handle in all ways.
Beth happily hacks out alone and in company. She is excellent in traffic, she regularly crossing a busy 'a' road roundabout and will patiently wait until it is clear to cross and isn't fazed by lorries passing her etc. She is a nicely forward going ride and responsive to the aids so you do not need to keep nagging her with your leg, she will just nicely go along. She is great in open spaces and regularity hacks out in a group of horses and will canter in any order without getting fizzy or excitable. She has been on long 10 mile hacks and pleasure rides where she has crossed rivers, jumped logs, crossed bridges etc all in a calm manner. She has also been on beach rides when she is fantastic and so much fun. She would be a great pleasure horse/ happy hacker to have hours on fun with.
Beth has hunted for 2 seasons in Ireland where she really loved her job and was very bold over her jumps, literally jumping anything she was pointed at. She is a very mannerly girl and stands well at the meet and goes along nicely in the field where she is forward going, very brave but real fun. She loves jumping the hunt jumps and ditches. He would make someone a wonderful hunter and he is very sure footed.
Beth is amazing at cross country; she is very bold and brave and doesn’t bat an eye lid at any jump. She jumps everything asked of her including hedges, ditches, walls, timbers, coffins, water complexes etc. She gives his rider so much fun and confidence as she never stops at anything.
Beth has done very limited schooling and areana work as her previous owner didn’t have an araena and was only interested in hacking, hunting and pleasure rides. She is green in the school for her age and does need further work with bending and going round in circles as well as maintaining a regular rhythm. She is very willing to learn and has no ridden vices at all, just lacks knowledge and training as she has done all of her work out of the school in straight lines. I have popped a few jumps with her in the school where she was very genuine and really took me into the jumps and showed real scope, she just needs more flatwork schooling to help her then turn round a course of fences. She would be a good winter project for someone to work on her schooling and turn her into a super alrounder.
Beth has an amazing temperament. She is very quiet to handle with manners to burn. She is a very easy girl to have around, she is excellent in all ways to handle. She loves people and will stand for hours to be brushed and pampered, she is very affectionate and will form a good one to one bond with her owner. She leads like a dog and isn't fazed by anything. She happily lives out 24/7 as is very hardy but she is used to being stabled when the weather is bad. She mixes very well with mares and geldings.
Beth is very reasonably priced to reflect her lack of schooling and also she has sand cracks in her feet which need to grow out which currently have filler in them. With some schooling and remedial farrier work she will easily be worth double this. She is very sound and healthy and has a recent clean vetting that can come with her. The right home is by far the most important thing for me as she deserves to be loved and in return she will be very rewarding. She is ready to go straight away as a happy hacker/ pleasure horse and hunter but does need further work to become an alrounder riding club horse, so she would suit an experienced rider if you would like her to bring on as an alrounder. Knowledgeable 5 star homes only for this kind genuine girl.
