I'm looking for something around 15hh+ for my very nearly 13 yr daughter. She is as tall as me (5'5"), so I need something that will take her leg.
Sex doesn't really matter, but I don't want anything too mareish.
The ideal is a kind schoolmaster/mistress, something that will look after her whilst teaching her the ropes as she moves on from weekly lessons (3 years worth) at a riding school to something she can start to happy hack, have lessons on & maybe do the odd intro test/small, low level jumping/fun rides.
I don't necessarily want a "dope on rope", as I need something which will keep up with my TB out on a hack, but I don't want something which will see an open space and tank off with her with no brakes! (I have enough of that with my lad)
They need to be good in traffic, as we do experience farm traffic/lorries/skip wagons on the roads as we get from bridleway to bridleway, and something that can lead my ginger ninja past his nemesis (cattle) would be good.
They need to be able to live out all year with my boy and preferably be already bare foot, or able to be transitioned to bare foot.
We are on a very quiet yard based near the Lincolnshire/Nottinghamshire border, with lots of off road hacking and the local equestrian centre is only a 20 minute hack away....Read full description
