Betsy – 15.1hh Mare

15.1hh Bay Mare, Year of birth 2012

Loan Betsy for £500 pcm shared use.

Or £650 pcm sole use.

Both to include livery, shoeing and worming.

This gorgeous bay mare was imported from Ireland by Sally in June 2016.

Betsy is beyond a doubt one of the sweetest mares on the planet! She is absolutely adored by all the staff here, and is a particular favourite of mine and the Yard Manager’s! So although we will be sorry to see her go, we are really keen for her to find her forever home, where she will be treasured by her new owner.

She is a smashing looking mare and so nicely put together, with absolutely wonderful hind leg conformation and powerful, sloping hindquarters. Her neck is set on beautifully and she has a lovely head with a kind eye! Bearing all of this in mind, she would make a super contender for cob classes. Her temperament is also ideally suited to the show ring as all the judges will want to take her home with them!

Betsy is a really polite, easy ride in the arena. Although she is a heavier cob type, this doesn’t come across at all in her way of going under saddle. She is light in the hand, doesn’t pull or lean and is actually very athletic, with three smooth and comfortable paces.

Bred out of a very good jumping mare, this fabulous all-rounder is also a capable, confident jumper. She is a forward, uncomplicated ride around a set of show jumps and thoroughly unspooky; so never concerned by fillers or the like! She is really easy to see a stride on, and helps her rider out where she can.

This fantastic, trainable attitude can also be seen out on the cross country course, where she flies everything she is pointed at without ever giving her rider a moment’s worry!

She is very well behaved hacking out in company around our fields, but is equally as good when hacked alone! She is truly a joy to hack and brings the same positive mental attitude to her hacking as she does every single aspect of her work.

Betsy is pure sunshine. She is never down in the dumps or at all mareish, but comes out every single day with the same honest, genuine and bright frame of mind.
