Red Shelley Full up 148cm (life height certificate) 14 year old (as of 1st Jan 2022) Grand-sired by It’s The Business She has not competed for about 3 years now as I have been away at Uni and then starting a new career. She is for sale as I always hoped I would come back to riding but have realised I simply don’t have the time to give her what she deserves. Shelley has been with me for 11 years and was bred by my aunt so I know her full history. Our focus was showjumping so we competed with BS primarily, but she has also tried her hand at many other disciples and we were members of the Pony Club for many years. She has done everything from beach rides to pony club camp, and we even jumped for England together on the 148 Debut Team at the EHPI in 2015. In 2018 (her last competition season) she was Champion of the Progressive Final at Scope Festival, placed 9th in the Eskadron Discovery at Blue Chip, and qualified for the discovery final first time before placing at the Championship at Stoneleigh Nationals. Shelley is good to do in all ways, loads perfectly every time, and is easy to handle. She is a real trier and rarely touches a pole. She has been lightly worked over the last 3 years and has done lots of hacking, she is bombproof around traffic and will go alone or in company. She is a great character to have on the yard and would be an asset to any jockey. Lives in or out. She is a chestnut mare so can be sassy but it all adds to her great personality!! Whilst hacking last year, she had a short bout of being sore-footed which led us to investigate for laminitis. After clean foot balance x-rays and a bit of rest she has been sound ever since, and have no concerns that this would be an issue going forward. I can get confirmation of this in writing from the vet if requested. Whilst she has an excellent history and BS record, she is being sold from the field after almost 3 years off, and this is reflected in her price. Looking for mid to high 4 figures.
