SOLD! Fabulous American Warmblood Mare with great bloodlines! Very good mover, floaty, rhythmical. Superior jump. Schools 4' courses with ease. 2012 Year End MIHJA Champion Level 1 jumper. She free jumps 5'6" with ease (our standards don't go higher), and is schooling solid 2nd level dressage including shoulder-in, renvers, travers, leg yields (started half pass), square halts, simple changes and counter canter. Evented as well and jumps water, banks, ditches etc. with no problems. Was 2nd at first BN recognized event on a 31. Schooled through prelim and was awesome (so much scope!). She is so much fun to jump! Never been lame (I've known her for 5 years). Barefoot. Easy keeper. Up to date on everything. No vices. Loads on the trailer with ease. Great for vet and farrier. Middle of the herd.
Reason for low price on this high quality mare: I have owned this mare for 3 years, but I am currently pregnant and am unable to ride her. She needs an experienced rider as she can be spooky. This mare would be a great investment for an aspiring professional or ambitious amateur to get a very high quality horse on a tight budget. She is much less spooky when she is in full work and is not overly spooky at shows at all. If you were committed to campaigning her in the jumper, dressage, or eventing ring, she would make a great resale project as well. $3500 OBO, good home most important.
