Tilly is a 4 year old Thoroughbred mare standing 16 hands high and growing. Exceptional is how I describe this fantastic young horse. Don’t let Thoroughbred scare you. She moves like a hunter, and has the brain of a schoolmaster. Tilly has been smart and honest with everything I have thrown her way. She has been started over fences, has seen the cross country field, and has been on the trails as well. This mare is one I won’t mind keeping around to develop and grow with.... (read more) The absolute best home is a must! Horses like her are few and far between.
In the ring, Tilly is eager to do whatever is asked of her. She will happily go around slowly and quietly, but she will go into a frame and get to work when asked. She has 3 floaty, hunter-like gaits that will make everyone stop and stare. She will go around on a loose rein or in a frame when asked. She is learning her changes and how to work off the leg. This mare is smart and willing with anything you ask or teach. Tilly has done lines and started over courses. Everyone loves this ladies style and movement over fences. Tilly is also content just giving the little ones pony rides around the farm.
Off property, Tilly settles in quickly to whatever activity you do. I have taken her on extensive trail rides. She hacks out in a group or by herself. Canters and gallops up and down hills. As she gets older she will be very easy to move up the levels as she is honest and as straightforward as you can ask for, for a horse her age. On hunter paces and trail rides, Tilly is happy to see new places. She gets more confident and relaxed on every ride. She’s a fast learner, and the more she sees, the more she learns. I have high hopes for Tilly in the show ring in the future!
In the barn, Tilly has great manners and acts mature and respectable with adults and children. She can easily be handled by the lesson students and loves the attention they give her. She does not act mare-ish around the barn. Although she would prefer to be in the pasture 24/7 it given the choice. When she is turned out, she goes out with other mares with no issues. Tilly is a breeze to clip and braid, stands on the crossties to be groomed and bathed, and is an overall a pleasure to have in the barn.
Tilly is one of a kind. No one will believe you when you tell them she is a thoroughbred! She has the movement, brains, personality, and attitude to make a successful partner in any discipline. However, if finished to be a hunter or eventer, we wouldn’t be surprised to see her go to the top levels. This mare can easily be fine tuned and finished by a junior or amateur under a trainer’s supervision. Even still, she is talented enough for a professional to enjoy and bring along themselves. Tilly will only get better with age and experience. If you want a good minded, drop-dead gorgeous mare with all the talent in the world, look no further. In a couple of years when she is winning every competition make sure you’re the owner, and not wishing you were. She is sound with no vices. She loads, clips, ties, bathes, and stands for the farrier. Located in Raleigh, North Carolina. Priced at $15,000.
