- Eventing, All-Rounder and Showing
- Roxy is a 16.2, 4yo ID X TB mare. She was bought in March as a summer project and has been the most delightful student.
She's been produced slowly and carefully, but has learned super-fast. She's had a go at show jumping, eventing, schooling, dressage, showing, clinics, and hacking and has been a roaring success at everything, winning praise, admiration (and several rosettes).
She's hacked all over Cheshire: front, back, alone, in groups, trot, canter, gallop, traffic, tractors... nothing phases her. There's not much she hasn't seen or tried and she's embraced it all calmly, politely and willingly.
She’s easy to take out, loading and standing politely. She can be tied up outside and isn't bothered if her travelling mate disappears. She’s snaffle mouthed in all phases, even across a field.
Roxy is great for the farrier and although I haven’t clipped her, she has been clipped and it's hard to believe she would be anything other than delightful.
Whilst I've produced her principally with eventing in mind, there's no doubt she'd be a star in the show ring. Her manners may be quiet, but she's neither dull to ride or watch. She’s clean limbed, showy, has no vices and no lameness issues.
Despite the glowing school report, she is only 4 and I'm keen for her to go to a knowledgeable home, where her careful education will continue patiently and responsibly, so please don't consider her if you're a novice or nervous rider.
Plenty more videos and pictures on request.
