16.3h 8yr Beautiful stamp of a horse with a loveable laid back temperament that you can forget all your troubles whenever you ride her. Esmeralda is one of the safest horses you will ever meet she always looks after her rider from a complete beginner to a professional and always try’s her best. Esmeralda is adorable and has lovely manners both ridden and on the ground. She can easily be handled by your non-horsey other half. She happily comes to you in the field and stands perfectly to be shod, clipped, bathed and plaited. Esmeralda would suit either a lady or gentleman rider. She is easy to ride and is ridden in a simple snaffle for all activities. She has undertaken all activities, including dressage, showing, jumping, hacking and pleasure rides and always turns heads and receives lovely comments wherever she goes. As a 4 yr old she did 4 BE90’s that was a great education for her future, she has then had a nice easy life, to date, and hasn’t been rushed or over used. She is scopey, brave, and very talented. She has a fantastic work ethic and wants to please in everything she does. She is working very nicely on the flat. She understands lateral work and bends correctly with nice balanced paces. She is nicely forward and off the leg and is ridden in a snaffle for all 3 phases. She can already produce a very smart dressage test with lovely paces. She loves her showjumping and could easily pure show jump to a high level as well as event. She has masses of scope and talent to go on. She takes you nicely to a fence and is scopey and careful when she gets there. Esmeralda is brilliant in open spaces and loves having a canter along with other horses. She will happily follow behind so is an ideal horse for fun rides and would make a fantastic hunter. She is foot perfect out hacking both alone and in company and is good with traffic and farm machinery. She will happily go first, last or in the middle of a group. She isn’t clingy or kicky and is good with opening gates, dogs and all other types of farm animals. Esmeralda loads straight on the wagon or trailer and I often take her out and about on my own. She also happily stands on the wagon on her own at shows, so you can go off and leave her whilst you have a look round.. She is very easy and low maintenance to deal with. She will live in or out happily, with no vices. She isn’t ridden every day and having days off has no effect on her behavior. She’s always first to come over to see me in the field and brilliant to deal with on the ground. She loves human attention and being made a fuss of. Genuine and loveable and a firm yard favorite, who is the sort that is extremely hard to find. I will be sad to see her go, as I have really enjoyed working with her. Esmeralda is a loveable, friendly and genuine horse. She is up to date with everything, including vaccinations, and is ready for someone who wants a no hassle easy horse to go out and enjoy. Based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
