Clio (stable name Pea) is a 14.3hh, 5 year old mare who is absolutely exceptional for her age. She's Connemara x ISH, but on a pet passport. She was backed by us early 2023 and was an absolute treasure. She was safe as houses right from the start, not spooky and quite happy to go out alone. She came back for holiday livery and once again was a joy to have around. Now her owner has decided that Pea feels a little bit small for her, and that she has more potential than she'll use. It's like she's been hacking her whole life, she will happily go like a trekking pony behind, or lead the way and stride out beautifully. We've had her past hedge trimmers and tractor trailers without her batting an eyelid. We trust her completely, and can attest to that as she's been regularly ridden by my heavily pregnant sister. This is a young horse who has been very carefully produced, she just did straight line work for months to allow her to strengthen up and build the correct muscles without being overworked. Because of that, we have no qualms about her being truly fit and ready to go and she has proved that by being beautifully balanced in the school. She is working towards Novice level on the flat, and is now out jumping 80 courses. She went to her first ODE and behaved impeccably, with a solid performance in all three phases. She has done plenty of training shows, winning two intro tests dressage, and competing in jumping at several different venues. Good on the ground, barefoot, good to travel. A very easy keeper.
