Barbie is an approx. 16.3hh 8yo (2016) ISH mare. She is very well bred by Pointilliste out of a Golden Master (Master Imp) mare. She was bred with high level Eventing in mind and has 87.50% blood. Barbie is not suitable for a novice/nervous rider as she is still green for her age and is quite a hot, forward going horse. She is very low mileage for her age due to having no rider at home for her in Ireland. She is therefore still green in the school but does have fabulous paces once she’s relaxed in to her work and with the right rider will produce a beautiful test. She has the scope for at least Novice Eventing or would also be a great horse to take up the levels SJ or a bronze/silver league horse as she has no points, is proving to be careful and is naturally quick around a course. She has been SJ training at Bicton and will shortly be attending her first show with us. Barbie has also enjoyed a day out with the TVH this season. Although she was very good at the meet and with the hounds she does like to keep moving once she’s started although this may improve with more experience. Was happy to jump anything out in front of her. She hacks alone and in company, will go first or last and has been good with all traffic we have met with her. She does take confidence from the rider if she’s not 100% sure of something. Everything she has done with us to date she has been snaffle mouth. She has no vices. She is good to load, travel, catch, shoe (although can be a little nervous at first with hot shoeing).   We think she would really excel in a home with a confident rider that wants to go out and have fun Eventing/jumping.   The owner is looking for offers around the £14,000 mark for her and looking for someone to enjoy this fun horse and bring out the best in her. We are based near Cullompton (10mins from J27 of the M5).    Please contact Natalie referencing ‘Barbie’ on 07508039177 or the HQ Equestrian Facebook page for any additional questions, pictures/videos or to arrange a viewing.
