Jasmine is a lovely sensible mare, sadly outgrown. She has done all sorts of Pony Club events, XCountry clinics, prelim dressage, unaffiliated show jumping ( fast jumping rounds 70-80) her scope is upto 85 in the ring, jumps 90 at home but not so much on a full course above 85.
She behaves well in group work or 1:1 .
Trustworthy in new situations. Good to clip, shoe, etc. Hacks alone and in company and is very good in traffic. She is fine with dogs and loves people and even good with little children riding her. She likes to go out to the grass almost all year round for at least some hours of the day, although does feel the cold so need rugging and stable at night in the cold months; she gets used to a new routine quite easily. She is living out at the moment. Sometimes takes a few minutes to catch her if in a herd and she feels that you are taking her in too early. ... we bribe her with pony nuts.
Currently 4 shoes but can go front shoes only if preferred .
Snaffle mouthed and is not silly or strong even in open fields , she is happy to ride at the front or the back and is not spooky .
Located in Chelmsford Essex , could hire a local arena for test ride or lesson . Would suit a rider coming off ponies with some riding skills. Can send more photos and videos
Price includes tack & rugs
Professionally fitted Bates saddle, black Caldene bridle with Fulmer snaffle and spare eggbut happy-mouth snaffle, running martingale. Various turnout rugs ( 0g, 100g, 200g, heavy weight 350g , also stable rugs all in good condition etc ( most rugs have been washed and reproofed)
Jasmine is up to date with vaccinations ( flu 6M and herpes) , teeth, shoes, She is fit and healthy and ready to ride. Clean limbed no sarcoids no medical issues that we know of. She has an old scar on her left bum cheek which has never caused us any issues, cut on a fence long ago, (can send photo) it has never split or weeped.
Jasmine would suit child or teenager wanting lots of riding and pony club, loves to spend time in the menage with other horses and kids, stands patiently whilst changing the poles etc. Also she could suit a mother daughter share and is very easy to hack out alone and be ridden by more than one person. She listens nicely when schooling.
My daughter has owned her from age 11 and she has been a wonderful sensible horse . Reason for sale , parents do not want to go through the winter with an extra horse that needs mucking out and riding after school..... just not enough hours in the day. Daughter has moved onto a larger horse.
Q, why have you reduced the price? A, because I am realistic about horse prices changes after the summer holidays and I want to sell before the Autumn/ Winter weather.
Q, have you had other viewings/ why isn’t she sold? A. Yes I have sadly had a few MESSERS viewers who came/ rode/ took videos/ asked to loan instead of buy.!!!
Jasmine is FOR SALE, I will not loan her to a stranger . If you cant afford the price then don’t come and view and waste my time ( please)
Q. does she have any vices? A, No, but as I have said she sometimes takes a few extra minutes to catch .
Q, Why doesn’t she jump bigger? A, no particular reason, all horses have a comfortable height and I believe hers is under 85, with more experience she may go higher, my daughter loves pony club and she local jumping and she is great for that .
Q, Would she suit a novice? A, I have seen her ridden by small kids and she looks after them, however you need to have had a good amount of riding lessons ( balance and aids) to be able to cope with riding any horse that isn’t a riding school dobbin. I guess I would say ‘how novice is novice?’ She is 15’2 and likes to be ridden, so if you have regular lessons to get used to her you will improve your skills and would be fine.
