16.1hh 5yo ISH X TB Mare. Due to the rising cost of living, my shift pattern and a change in personal circumstances I reluctantly have to try and find Fifi a new home. She is full of untapped potential, low mileage having been ridden in a school a handful of times. She came from Ireland at a 3yo and was backed as a 4.5 yo. Fifi is ready to start a proper ridden career having spent 99% of her ridden work out hacking and exploring. She is great in traffic and snaffle mouthed. She is a great mover and very sweet in nature. Two front shoes only and lives off little feed and haylage. I travel Fifi in my trailer by myself. My non-horsey husband turns her out and brings her in whilst I am at work. She is currently in her winter scruffs due to my lack of time with her. No stable vices. Fifi has a brand new saddle that is available, along with rugs. Fifi is a clever young horse and due to bucking in the school last year she had a full work up done including Xrays, scopes etc. As a result, she has had a precautionary ligament snip in her spine for which she is fully professionally rehabbed and ready to start a proper ridden career. I have been slowly bringing her back into work and hacking her out. She is fully sound and no medication etc. She has had a further work up and it now transpires that in the school she can still throw a bronc or a buck but is now blatantly apparent that this is due to me only being able to provide her with limited turnout with no herd interaction, lack of help on the ground, and no company out hacking, which is absolutely no fault of her own. I recognise that she is a big young horse with a lot of energy and her current lifestyle is unfair. She is suited to an experienced, knowledgeable home where she can have a proper work programme and routine and to bring out her potential. She would make an excellent eventer, dressage horse or allrounder. Fifi does have superficial scarring on her back legs due to old field injuries as a youngster, and a single sarcoid on her stomach. Both have been checked by vet with no concerns or recommendations to remove, and do not affect her in any way. Tack available if required by seperate negotiation.
