Very sad sale of a loved horse but I am returning to the UK due to family circumstances so need to find her the right home to bring out her full potential!
Dakota is a stunning, flashy little mare standing at 15,2hh.
She would suit someone with experience of green horses or an experienced competition home, she’s not a beginner horse.
She’s has the sweetest nature and is easy to handle in every way – she’s a pleasure to own! She is very intelligent and always try’s her heart out, really not got a bad bone in her body.
She is still a little green and can be anxious in new situations so needs a confident rider to get her through it she’s never nasty just gets a little worried.
She’s 12 years old off the track thoroughbread she ran 8 starts before retiring sound and since then been to a previous home before me as a farm horse where I bought her green as a project. Since she has been with me I have re trained her at Yalambi farm stud and she is showing great potential as a showjumper.
She is bomb proof around machinery and farm animals, she’s not mare-ish and is very easy going around other horses. She will hack out alone or in company and isn’t spooky.
Her flat work is coming along tremendously, has three forward established paces although not as strong on the left canter but improving and building each day, she’s learned flying changes and lateral movements and doing these with ease. She’s snaffle mouthed and very light in the hand.
She has recently started jumping courses and NEVER hesitates or looky/stops she is so bold and confident. She has shown skill and honesty in her home jumping sessions and I have no doubt with the right rider she will go on to compete in the future and place easily!
She is great for the vet/farrier/dentist etc
Her only downfall is she is a nervous traveller she will walk on and off the float first time with no issues and she will stand like a rock and doesn’t scramble or panic but will vibrate and sweat during travelling this stops as soon as she’s off the float.
She loves the beach and swimming in the sea and will canter up and down the beach with a loose rein!
She is up to date on worming/teeth etc shod all round.
She really is an amazing little horse with so much potential and if I could transport her home I would, she will give her all to her human and make someone very happy. The right home for her is a must!
She will be coming will a full wardrobe.
