eventer prospect with serious potential +




Scroll to bottom of advert for YouTube video :))

Avanti – commonly going by ‘Voo’ – is a very pretty, fine thoroughbred mare measured
at 15.3 ¾ hh.  She is absolutely oozing potential but is still very green and learning where her legs are. Voo is best suited to a very confident, experienced rider who has a familiarity with thoroughbreds.
She is ridden in a French link eggbutt snaffle for everything.
Avanti’s official education under saddle has only been in the works for the past 6
months, as for the majority of her life, she has enjoyed paddock life since she
came off the track, where she trialled twice under Classy Dancer. Her education
has progressed very quickly over the last 2 months in particular where she has
been coming into proper full work.
She is naturally a very relaxed horse, and a very sooky one at that, who really
values time with her special person… She tends to grow on people who get to be
around her lots. Avanti can get anxious when separated from other horses, but this
hasn’t been an issue when we have taken her out recently whether it be pony
club, cross country schooling or shows – she is very happy to be ridden away
from the group and doesn’t kick up a fuss on the way back.
Voo has competed to 75cm in showjumping and very recently competed in the 65cm
class at log fence hickstead. It was her first time doing any sort of cross-country
course and she had zero refusals. She is very bold on cross country and it
really is her element. She is confident on course – open areas or in narrow
bush. She was ridden in a snaffle. Voo showed a capacity for improvement and
she does so each time she is taken out, whether is be pony club or
cross-country training… in which she jumped up to 80cm for her first proper xc
schooling. She also went up and down banks, and through water. She showed great
ability to navigate the questions, like as if she’d done it many times before.
It came very naturally to her! She has shown the ability to handle a show
atmosphere and she settled very quickly, falling asleep while she was plaited
She has trained up to 100cm, but is most competent at 80cm and below as she is
still green. Avanti has basic flatwork and warms up to her rider as she goes. She
can test, so is suited to a confident and firm, yet quiet rider. As said
earlier, Voo has an incredible amount of potential and is much more than just
another thoroughbred on the market – she is a very nice little horse when she
finds her special someone and she will go very far! With the right rider and time
she will make it much higher than just 65 eventing and 75 showjumping.
Voo is fantastic for farrier and is up to date with worming! She is very respectful
around food and has been described by others to have a kind eye.
Avanti will be sold with lots of her gear including the following:
– Mounted, fully fitted dressage saddle
– Jumping bridle with bit (still want to keep the cheap old $50 flat
bridle… has sentimental value)
– 4X combo rugs (size 6’3) – cotton, 600D (0g), 1200D (220g), fleece
(brand new)
– Halter and lead
– Feed bucket
– OPTIONAL: can take weatherbeeta midnight blue dressage saddle pad and
polo wraps (for free) if wanted
Reason for sale is through no fault of her own – unfortunately too many factors
working against us. I have year 12 next year and simply won’t have the time to
keep 2 in work and Voo deserves better than to have her potential wasted in a
paddock – for this reason we would prefer to sell her before the middle of
summer. Aside from that, I personally want to pursue pony dressage and produce
my own youngster from scratch. An opportunity has risen, and sadly one horse
must go. Price is very negotiable, but home isn’t. She will take her very
special (and lucky) someone to the moon and so much further… I would keep her
if I could, I really would, but it would just be such a waste for her to be a
paddock ornament. Very sad sale – she will be well missed.
