Magpie is a 2012 piebald mare standing approx. 15hh and is for sale on behalf of her owner.
She has spent the last 2 years in her current home as a happy hacker for an older lady and has been living on her own. She is great to hack alone and isn’t phased by anything traffic wise. She can get a little more excitable when hacking in company and squeal if another horse gets too close however we feel that this is due to her living on her own as she has improved since being with us and regularly hacking in company.
Magpie is still green in the school due to not being in one for the past 2 years. She is starting to settle well in to her work and will need someone who is happy to continue on with her schooling to bring out the best in her.
Magpie absolutely loves her jumping! The owner wasn’t sure if she had done much previously so we’ve taken it slowly with her but she appears to be a natural and comfortably jumps round a course of 85cm and gives the jumps plenty of room and think she will comfortably jump round a 1m course in time. She has proven to be careful and will help you out if you miss as well.
Prior to her current owner we were told she had done some hunting and low level showing. She does dish in front so wouldn’t be able to do any higher level showing.
Magpie is good for the vet, farrier, load, travel, catch. She has previously been sedated by her owner to clip however we managed to clip her without any. All vaccinations are up to date and she doesn’t have any vices.
She is a forward going ride that has been known to throw the odd buck in so wouldn’t be suited to a complete novice. We feel she would be best suited to a pony club/riding club home where she will get out and about and have a job to do.
We are based near Cullompton (10mins from J27 of the M5).
