Hunting, Happy Hacker, Showing and All-Rounder
❤️ Cleo ❤️ 16hh 8yo Grey Ardennes x cob mare. She has 3 established paces and remains snaffled mouthed at all times. She is an easy going and laid back mare. A quiet, forgiving ride without being a plod, she's light on her feet and responsive to ride but without being unmanageable or unsafe. She can be ridden by novices. Dependant on the riders experience she can occasionally need a tap into canter, we believe this is just a fitness issue. She is extremely safe to hack alone, in company first or last, she is not spooky or nappy. She can be ridden on the buckle through busy roads and isnt phased by large vehicles, farm machinery, cyclists etc. She has been used in the past as a lead for young horses. On open fields she will remain sensible, never strong or silly, and can be cantered at the end of the buckle, even in company. She is never going to be a time trial horse but she does jump 1m at home, she isn't phased by any fillers or water trays. She has completed two seasons with a lady hunter, proven herself to be bold, willing and level headed at all times, she isn't phased by the atmosphere, horn or the dogs. She happily goes through water and over ditches and hedges. She is quiet enough for a novice to hunt. On the ground she just wants loving, she is laid back and desires someone to spend the time fussing and grooming her. She is good to catch, loads onto a horsebox and travels well, stables well and has no vices or bad habits, good to lead. She does require a kind handler. Based in Runwell, Essex. She is open to vettings, bloods, trainers and any inspections. To be sold with a 14 day warranty. Delivery can be arrange nationwide. £2500
