PLEASE NOTE OLIVE IS LOCATED IN VA!!
Update Jan 31- New video taken Jan 28th Flat Work Lesson at Shadowfax LLC With Baily Hale Dent
Olive is the real deal for the ambitious, discerning hunter rider looking for a quality prospect but doesn't have the budget to afford a fancy warmblood. She is 16.1 turning pearly white (although her mane and tail still have dark points). She has an absolutely lovely balanced canter, lovely trot and just a soft way of going that the hunters enjoy. Olive is now doing small courses with a lead change. Although green she never rushes the fence but does not refuse either. She just needs the right rider to come along and really fine tune her up for the show season and put the miles on her to make her a beautiful 3'0 hunter (could possibly do the 3'6" perhaps with the right training). Has been free jumped and shows tight, snappy knees thus far. There are two historical videos of her as a 3 and 4yr old with her previous owner if you wish to see them. Youtube Indy Blues/ horse or Indy Blues/ Jumping.
Has show experience in CA in AQHA HUS as a 3 yr old.
No kick, bite, rear, buck, spook or nastiness about her. Trailers well to new locations and handles new atmospheres fine. Can be grouchy when girthed but isn't nasty about it. Very workman-like attitude. Can ride out alone and isn't herd bound. Just needs the miles and the time. Life time membership with the USEF. Would be suitable for an advanced beginner or intermediate working with a trainer or older adult amatuer wanting a safe mount to enjoy.
Please contact me if interested in her. The only reason she is being offered to the public is because I would like to event and hunters is going to be her forte! Is currently in a light riding program and is available to try. Will go into full hunter training for March, price to increase with training and experience.
Can haul within 200 miles.
