Having been with us for retraining since December, dear little Jilly is now looking for a person of her own to go and enjoy a new life with.

She’s 15.2hh and 5years old and probably the sweetest thing we have on the yard! Quiet to handle, gentle and has taken training in her stride.

Jilly had previously raced on 8 occasions but now having worked with her for a while, it’s clear why it wasn’t her thing! She likes a bit of leg and is more than happy taking things a more sedate pace rather than flat out!

She’s hacked out alone and in company on roads and bridleways, she’s been through water and cantered in company and behaves well, generally walking along quite happy on the buckle!

She’s becoming more consistent on the flat in the school, lengthening and shortening her strides & becoming more equal on both reins. She’s taken part in a few group lessons and has been introduced to poles and simple jumps. While in time, we feel Jilly has the potential to have quite a decent jump on her, this is something that will require more time as she is still very green while jumping.

While she is not a child’s pony due to her age and previous career, she has been ridden by 14yr old on several occasions now.

She saw the chiropractor on arrival & has had sport massage to help relax those racing muscles and has had her teeth done. She’s been fine to shoe. She’s turned out all day and recently been out over night. While we currently keep her on individual turnout (next to others) she is a friendly soul and not reactive and we think she’d be quite happy out with a friend or two.

Ideally we’d like to find Jilly a person who has the time, patience & knowledge for a young horse and a soft spot for the ex racer. Being petite little lady herself, we feel she’d suit an equally petite lady for dressage and hacking perfectly. She’s dainty and pretty and in a few months time, with a bit more top line and grass in her tummy, we feel she could look very flash while having the benefit of a sweet attitude.

Its very important we find her the right home - she’s an absolute poppet and deserves a knowledgeable, loving home.

There’s videos of Jillys progress from the beginning on our Instagram page - pinetree_stables and I have more videos which I’m happy to share via WhatsApp if you’re interested and welcome a chat for more info.
