16 HH TB BAY MARE 12 YRS FOR SALE...
Lilly the Loup (GB), (Loup Sauvage, USA X Esparade FR) is a striking, well bred 12 year old mare for sale through no fault of her own. Weatherbys passport. Eligible for RoR.
Trained for point-to-point as a 5 year old and only ran a hand-full of times, after a period of retraining she came to me in 2013 as a fairly green 7 year old.
Kind in temperament and low mileage, Lilly is a trier who is willing to give anything a go, having tried her hoof at dressage, jumping, pleasure rides and hunting. Happy to hack for miles both in company and alone and happy to go first, last or in between. Un-fazed by heavy traffic, farm machinery, crop sprayers and pigeon deterrents as well as sheep, cattle and dogs.
Has plenty of potential and will do well in the right hands, lack of time and commitment on the part of her owner being the only thing holding her back. Generally snaffle mouthed for flat work and general hacking and goes well in a Waterford for jumping/hunting. Can be impatient to move off once off the lorry when out and about but this usually would involve pawing the ground and being on her toes as opposed to anything silly/unpredictable and will settle once asked to move forward. Forward going and responsive to the leg and has a bold jump. Not a complete novice ride, but has no vices, and aims to please and look after her rider. Would benefit (as with most) from regular schooling and routine to bring forward.
Happy to load into a variety of lorries and travels well forwards, backwards as well as herringbone. Good to catch, load, worm, shoe etc., good for the vet and dentist and will fall asleep while being clipped!
A pleasure to be around on the yard, will live in or out and has been grazed in both mixed and single sex herds as well as individual grazing, and appears happiest in a small herd where she is a caring and ever popular mare.
Very rarely sick or sorry, Lilly is fully shod, rarely lame and has tidy feet. Fully up-to-date with her vaccinations and open to any vetting.
Caring and secure home where she will be enjoyed and ridden is a priority for this special horse.
Price negotiable for right home.
