"Ava" is a 15.2hh grey, 4 year old percheron/thoroughbred cross mare. Don't be fooled by her height, she's got that perfect build that will take up the leg of any height rider. Those who are looking for that all arounder, with the in your pocket personality and looks to match look no farther! Ava is as sweet as can be in the barn and is ready to be someone's next partner. She practically falls asleep on the crossties and loves to be groomed and fussed over.... (read more) She stands like a doll for the farrier, tacking, mounting, etc. She has impeccable manners and aims to please. Ava is a quiet, easy going girl with unlimited potential. Under saddle she's been started slowly and correctly and is schooling walk/trot/canter and started over fences lightly due to her age (up to 2'3", TONS of scope!). She has three consistent gaits and happily schools on a loose rein. She's good about her upward and downward transitions and has the best emergency brakes anyone could ever ask for! A soft "whoa" and she does just that, no questions asked! If you're a rider that values comfort you will appreciate her lovely, balanced canter. To her fences she's as easy as can be, brave and scopey. She tries very hard and has been willing with everything asked of her. Ava's been schooled over cross rails, small verticals, brush boxes, stone and brick walls. Even at her age she already knows how to take a joke and is very forgiving of rider errors. She's been hacked out as well and trailers well and behaves nicely off the farm too. She's been over natural obstacles, through water, over bridges, etc. Not a complicated ride in anyway, she has a fantastic brain and is only going to get better! Smart young horse, suitable for just about any discipline. We think she'd be a hit as a fox hunter, local show horse, lesson or trail horse! She's an easy keeper, barefoot and 100% sound. Good home is an absolute must!
