African Glory (Gloria) – 9yo, 16.3 TB Mare (ROR eligible)
Fame and Glory x African Miss
Qualified for the 85 style jumping championship and the Novice dressage championship at the Riding Club National Championship this summer. Never not been placed in dressage at Prelim and Novice level.
Gloria started racing at 5 and came off the track March 2022. She has a very lovley personality, has a can-do attitude and loves to please. Would excel in dressage or showjumping. She’s never not been placed when competing. Although she is 16.3, I’m only 5ft 1 and find her a pleasure to ride.
She really excels in dressage with three very flashy paces and is on the Pony Club and Riding Club dressage teams at Prelim and Novice level and has recently started working her lateral movements ready to step up to elementary next year.
Gloria has jumped up to 90/ 95 out showjumping on grass and on a surface but has scope to jump bigger. Snaffle mouthed for all three phases and is quiet into a fence and stays in a lovely rhythm. She’s hacked alone and in company.
Gloria is a yard favourite and pleasure to deal with. No stable vices, easy to clip, shoe, have her teeth done, load (she is happier traveling in a horse box rather than a trailer)
