"Mo" is a 7 year old, 16hh mare.
She has been with me for 18 months, originally arriving as a schooling livery but I bought her as a longer term project, and in that time had a wide range of experiences and education.
She is looking for her next home ideally low level / riding club / fun / pleasure home. Reason for sale is that I am more into eventing than she will ever be, would like to concentrate on producing my young horses bought specifically to event and I think she would like to build that bond and connection with someone who didn't put as much pressure on her as I do.
Over the last 18 months we have done lots of hacking, hunting, clinics and training. She completed 3 UA 80 events, has done dressage to unaff Novice level and was a guinea pig at the RoR Showcase event last October.
She has recently XC schooled around 80, and jumped a range of natural fences out hunting but she is not a jumping schoolmistress and I think 70-80 is a nice limit for her at this moment in time. Doesn't stop and is great over fillers and arena XC fences too but isn't a natural over fences - video included from Nick Turner event clinic where you can see she is honestly rhythmic and safe.
She has been ridden by a range of riders of all experiences but having been professionally produced (I coach and provide breaking/schooling for a living) she appreciates a quite seat and is forward and responsive, so not suitable for someone who is novice or unbalanced but she would be a good first RoR as she is extremely uncomplicated.
She has no ridden or stable vices, and is turned out in a mixed herd - there are 2 mares and 9 geldings - she is not silly or mareish atall but everyone gets on with her. She lives out 24/7 - even clipped and well rugged this winter, and doesn't have a high maintenance diet. No foot balance issues - wears normal hunter shoes and doesn't have a habit of pulling them thankfully!
She does dish slightly and has some scarring on her belly and inner hind leg from a ringworm infection as a yearling - this has been skin scraped by 2 vet practices and shown to be purely cosmetic scarring; but meaning she is not suitable for a showing home, although she does move fluently otherwise and is a nice stamp.
I am unable to include a saddle in this sale unfortunately, but she can come with a range of rugs and other equipment.
She has been advertised previously, and with work committments and other horses to produce I have dropped the price to help find her the most perfect home. Loan may be considered as the right home is far more important.
