Dot is a 6yo (DOB 8-10-2015) TB Mare, 15.3h (unofficial). She had a short lived racing career, race name Just a Dot, then retrained with a professional rider. I bought her just after she’d turned 5. She is currently being worked 4-5 days per week and ready for her new home.
Dot is a sweet mare who is proving trainable on the flat. She is more woah than go and currently comfortable with prelim movements. We include extensions and basic laterals in our training, simple changes, and working on walk to canter. She is green but supple and sensitive and shows potential as a dressage or show prospect.
We have spent the last year going to clinics, adult riding club, jump club and one or two local competitions where covid has allowed. Dot has jumped up to 80cm at home however is an anxious jumper. She would require a strong experienced rider who will work with her consistently and give her confidence to progress competitively in showjumping, or alternatively a rider who is just happy to jump low levels at home for pleasure and to vary training. She has competed to 70cm with me. We have also done low level XC to 60cm, she shows more bravery out XC but again will require a strong consistent rider to be a competitive eventer. She is happy to go through water. She will trail alone or in a group. She is not bomb proof though and would not suit a nervous rider. No buck, bolt or rear.
Dot self-loads onto a straight load float and is easy to catch. We’ve had regular lessons and lots of outings to give her exposure and she’s the same out as at home when she has a job to do. She requires a patient farrier which can be discussed further with potential buyers. She gets along well with other horses, has always been the boss in a group paddock and is a good doer. She’s only ‘marey’ towards other horses when there’s food involved.
I bought Dot after not having owned a horse for many years and wasn’t sure which direction we’d take. My heart isn’t in pure dressage, I’ve now rediscovered my love of showjumping however as a rider am not able to give Dot the confidence she needs, so I’ve made the heartbreaking decision to find her a new 5 star home. She’s a very special horse so must go to a wonderful home. She would suit a confident experienced teen or adult rider looking for a fun pleasure horse.
