Grey mare 15 years young.
15.2hh Andalusian x Thoroughbred
A pleasure to own in every way and is definitely not your stereotypical mare. Holly loves to be fussed over, whether being clipped, bathed, plaited or made up with makeup- she loves the attention and doesn’t move a muscle.
Holly is very easy to do anything with like catch, float, worm and is an angel for the farrier, she is one of the amazing horses that don’t require shoes and never has.
She is very well educated in Dressage and Jumping and has a superb work ethic. Holly has competed up to a metre in Show Jumping and 80cm in Eventing with previous owners. Currently training in Elementary and Medium Dressage in a snaffle as she does have a soft mouth. She has big, flashy movement and covers a lot of ground. She knows and loves her job in Cross Country, sticks to the pace and all you do is point and shoot. No hesitation in anyway so far with jumping into water, drops, jump ups and skinnies. Show jumping she sticks to a nice pace, listens throughout and doesn’t rush. Although she hasn’t had a full year of competition with us, whenever we take her out she is a gem, very relaxed and unattached to the other horse.
Trail riding, beach and estuary riding is a pleasure with Holly, she walks on the buckl, gallops without shying and enjoys the company of kangaroops. She can also be ridden bare back jumping or flat work, or with her rugs on. She has been ridden by a 1year old, who also sometimes gets betweven her legs in the tie up bays.
This is a very regretful sale as she needs her own rider who will give her the love and attention she desires. She would be suitable as a “first” horsefor a confident rider as she loves what she does. A horse that you can jump on after months and pick up where you left off, a horse that is fun to spend time with. Currently in full work with Carmen Abraham who is happy to give a reference for her as well. Holly will not disappoint.
$8000. Price is negotiable, home is not.
