Description
Contessa, or "Tessa" as she is more affectionately known, is a head-turner with impeccable breeding who manages to look stunning in all disciplines. She began her career as an eventer, working all the way up to Blenheim. However, she is now happiest in a less competitive environment outside the showjumping ring. She is particularly gifted in the dressage arena, where she has recently secured high results in unaffiliated competitions up to Novice level. She is also no stranger to cross-country and is brilliant fun on the hunting field. She hacks beautifully both alone and in a group, and is relaxed in traffic. She adores galloping across open fields. As you might expect for a Hanoverian mare, Contessa is not a novice ride. Contessa’s current owner, who only <2 years of riding experience, has formed the most amazing bond with her having fallen head over heels for her when he bought her, but lacks the experience to help her realise her full potential. She is a uniquely affectionate horse, who has perfect manners on the ground and is easy as pie for the vet, dentist and farrier, and stands quietly to be clipped. She loads easily into a lorry or a trailer and travels nicely. She is currently turned out in a herd and is happiest with other horses around her. Contessa is incredibly special to her current owners, who want her to go to a 5* home. While she isn’t suitable for competitive showjumping, she would be absolutely perfect for someone who loves dressage, but also wants to hack, go on fun rides, go cross-country or point-to-point, and hunt in the winter time.
