Saffy is a lovely 5yo 16hh approx (unmeasured) Palomino Stockhorse mare. She is by Roseridge Heat - Liver Chestnut (Sire Roseridge Minstril, D Roseridge Mary Lou) She is out of a Roseridge Felicity - Palomino (Sire Roseridge Sally’s Sam, Dam Elmwood Flur) Roseridge Mary Lou was a champion Polocrosse mare (state and National teams) Roseridge Sally’s Sam a top SH sire of Polocrosse, Campdraft etc horses and known for his exceptional temperament which was passed on to his progeny. Saffy’s current owner has owned Saffy since she was 3 weeks old. Her full siblings play Polocrosse at high levels. She is absolutely only for sale as she has grown too big for her current owner. She has been correctly produced and great care has been taken of her over the previous 5 years to ensure she is perfectly prepared for her future. She was broken in aged 2, with light bush riding for a couple of weeks. Turned out to mature more before being bought back in aged 3.5 years. She had 4 weeks work then, including arena, bush, roads (including main roads) and swimming. Turned out again as she was still growing. Bought back in aged 5 to sell on. She is excellent to handle and even fell asleep having her first full set of shoes on prior to coming into training here with us. Temperament We have found Saffy to be very pleasant to handle with a good attitude towards her work. She is sensible and smart, and is really enjoying her work. She is still green, but willing and really wants to be learn and do the right thing. She really likes people and her new owner will absolutely fall in love with her sweet temperament. Paces Saffy has regular paces and is forward moving. She has a good active walk with clear overtrack, a regular trot and his canter shows scope and talent but it is still green, and unbalanced at times especially on the left rein. Dressage On the flat, Saffy is kind and sweet and showing great talent for the future. She isn’t lazy or hot, or overly sensitive. She loves to work, and is starting to sit in a nice little frame more consistently. She is starting to develop a solid foundation of basics, and is starting to moving off the inside leg into the outside rein. She is happy to stretch down and work long and low. She maintains a rhythm, and is developing suppleness both ways. Jumping Saffy has only just commenced jumping. She is very willing, super bold, honest and tries really hard. Se has jumped a variety of different fill with ease and is cruising over 80cm after only a few training sessions showing scope to jump big fences one day with the right rider and further training. She is not the most careful jumper but she is still green and is talented enough that she could excel in a show jumping/eventing/allrounder home with a competent rider and more strength/technique training. Rider Suitability We feel that Saffy is best suited to a competent rider as she is still learning. She is a very genuine horse with an excellent temperament and is super versatile. We can see her going on to excel in literally any discipline. She is pretty enough to show, and registered so can do breed showing. She could try her hand at western or polo, and has the makings of a super pony club/adult rider allrounder mount. This horse is going to make someones dreams come true, we honestly can’t wait to see what her and her new rider go on to achieve together in the future. $12,000 Available to view now Nyora VIC https://youtu.be/5BetEYr4FI8
