Ellie is a lovely, kind 15.1hh, 20yo chestnut mare. About 7 years ago Ellie was bought by a non-horsey family for their very nervous teenager for trail riding, Pony club, events and rallies. Jumping C grade for both showjumping and ODE events. She was the perfect horse for this situation and never put a foot out of place. Ellie has been very well educated in the past (we don't know much about early days) but along with her kind nature, patience and submissiveness, this all puts her in the schoolmaster category. For the past 12 months, she has been spelled in a paddock after her riders interest changed, & part-time work, along with senior years at school. She was ridden the first day she came to our place 8 weeks ago and went around like clockwork. She has the daintiest trot, and will gradually get faster if asked, otherwise, she just sits in this beautiful gentle trot. She has a lovely flowing canter and this all makes her a lovely ride. Ellie has recently been ridden by a middle-aged lady for trail riding and also used as a nanny for weaning foals, which she was perfect for (not too bossy, and no running around the paddock like an idiot). Ellie would be the perfect horse for someone wanting to get back into riding, a beginner with just a little bit of an idea or just a pleasure horse. Recently she has been ridden at a pony club camp and a Gymkhana by a young girl, who is just starting to learn to canter. Because Ellie knows what the correct aids are, it was no time and cantering was achieved by her cautious rider. Ellie is a very young horse at heart, she never seems to get tired or look her age. This is a very sad sale by her owners, but they feel that Ellie still is sound and lively enough to give someone else enjoyment. These gentle, easy to ride horses at a reasonable price are very hard to find at the moment. That is why we are certain that the first people to come to ride Ellie will take her. Recently drenched, trimmed, rugged and teeth done. She is a good doer and looks great, you would never guess her age.
