Seeking experienced, wise, knowledgeable and kind-hearted horse-person to buy or free lease our much-loved 16.1h, 10yo Elliete.
After 20 years out of horsing, inspired to get back into it, I bought a very beautiful, healthy and hardy TB. I have had her for 3 years and when I have had the time to work with her consistently she has shown great progress. Now that I have been back into it a few years I have restarted eventing on a lease horse who is ready to go and I realise with my work commitments that I want a horse who is fully trained. Elliete is not that horse for me so I’m seeking a horse-person with outstanding skills who would like to bring Ellie on. Ellie is well suited to English or Western riding, I have done both with her and we have attended clinics with Ken Faulkner, Mark Rodney, Georgia Kolovos and Steve Burke, and a couple of ARC days.
Ellie has 3 lovely paces but we are still working on the right canter lead. She can move her shoulders for lateral work (e.g. yield and side pass) and back up softly. Ellie has been lunged and ridden over some small jumps but does really well in a consistent environment so I think dressage is her forte.
Ellie has had her teeth (see photo - not sedated), feet and worming done regularly. She has proven to be a hardy mare, not fussy with food, barefoot and only ever lightly rugged. Ellie is good to catch and floats reasonably well (we are still working on this) and has been paddocked with other horses and alone. I have ridden her bareback and with halter only many times. Ellie was last raced in 2014 after only 3 races. Ellie is out of work since Feb but I can happily bring her back into work as she is agisted with an indoor arena.
I will honestly answer any questions a serious potential buyer may have so you can make a well-informed decision. Price is negotiable to the right home.
