Available for half lease in Sutton, MA:
2008 17hh dark bay Holsteiner Mare. USEF # 5357837 and micro-chipped. Plenty of show miles in the junior and older adult equitation divisions with many top placings, including neck ribbons in the finals. Easy changes, honest to the fence with a nice jump, handy and makes the strides, loves flatwork that works her mind and is very responsive. She would make an excellent dressage partner too. This super cuddly girl loves her person! She will stand in the crossties for hours to be loved on (groomed, bathed, clipped, pulled). Also, stands nicely for the vet, chiropractor, massage/magnawave therapist and farrier, etc.
That being said... “Ella” is a little ‘special’. Along with all of these fabulous qualities she has, she also occasionally has what I call ‘typical mare’ moments. She might scoot in hand because a branch waved wrong or spook because a chair possibly moved an inch. She’s perfect in the barn and in an indoor arena. She never spooks at jumps, it’s generally something outside an arena that can initiate a challenge. You can win on her - she’s a lovely horse, fun to ride and such a love bug - she just requires prep at shows and consistent communication. So she is best suited for someone with a confident hand and confidence in the saddle.
She is currently half leased by a wonderful adult rider and I’m looking for another someone to share in keeping her busy and fit as constraints on my time and person make it difficult for me to do so. Half lease price is per month, quarter lease option considered ($325/mo.).
If you’re wanting to get back in the saddle and/or like a challenge but still want a talented sweet horse, “Ella” will steal your heart. She’s the kind of horse that makes you a better rider. If you want an easy, push button horse, she’s probably not the girl for you.
