Ellie "La Premiere of Potter Park"
14.1hh Section A Riding Pony Mare.Riders sadly outgrown 😢. Stunning almost black 16yo, real schoolmaster mare, ready for her next confident small rider. Easy to C,T,F. Mostly unflappable, Ellie has taken our then 11yo daughter from a nervous return to riding (following a nasty collarbone fracture when confidently showjumping on her other horse), back through her return to Pony Club, gymkhanas (as COVID has allowed), jumping clinics, prep to prelim dressage days and mounted games; to our daughter now returning to showjumping on her bigger horse. Ellie had several years off as a proven broodmare to 3 lovely babies before we welcomed her into our home. She has returned to full work and been out to several jumping & dressage clinics, regular Rally Days, gymkhanas and pony club camp. Lunged & handled for all things by 12yo with lots of video available upon request. Jumping easily at E/D grade, but needs a smaller rider to go higher (our girls' legs & bodies just keep growing - if she was another hand taller she would not be going anywhere as she is going so nicely!). Ellie is happiest in work with a job to do & a person to be her world. Used to being paddocked with several horses but loves a stable; currently in regular work, winter coat (unclipped) and barefoot.
Ellie can be forward-moving, with an eye-catching extended trot, so needs a capable seat and soft hands. She can also plod along with a beginner but given her big movement in a small package, is not suited as a beginner horse - much more a 2nd pony for an older child, small adult or young teenager wanting a geniune all rounder who is unfazed by most things, wants to go out and have fun at pony club, games, shows & jumping and just wants to have a lovely affectionate mare to call their own. She can be opinionated about her rider's attitude (and doesn't think its worthwhile to be ridden if her rider is sulking and cranky!), and works best in partnership with a willing partner. She is an absolute gem when she is knows she is loved and has a "person of her own". She does her best work with clear & balanced aids and soft hands; thus not suitable for a beginner as she will curl her head if grabbed in the face but no buck or rear. Will sometimes race into canter if rider is unbalanced forward, but pops gently into canter with relaxed seat & soft aid.
Ellie does windsuck if yarded (& this is reflected in her price), but managed well with ample roughage/hay. She can also be sensitive to sudden diet changes and although scoped clear for ulcers, does better with some supplements and appropriate diet to keep her stomach happy.
Very sad sale of a special mare - fitted near new D'Luxe All purpose saddle + Klimke dressage saddle, bridles, boots, halters, saddle pads & rugs available with her for additional negotiation.
Located just outside Canberra.
