Katherine – 13.2hh Mare

13.2hh Bay Mare, Foaled 1st April 2008

Loan Katherine for £500 pcm shared use.

Or £650 pcm sole use.

Both to include livery, shoeing and worming.

Katherine was imported from Ireland by Sally in September of 2017.

This cracking little cob mare is superbly put together. She is well proportioned and has a sweet head, so is very pleasing to the eye!

Although standing at 13.2hh, she is quite substantial and also really takes up the leg so she rides like a much bigger pony. I jumped straight off a 16.2hh onto Katherine and didn’t even notice the height difference!

Katherine stands quietly to be mounted, and waited patiently for me to fiddle with stirrup leathers and girth straps.

I rode her on a wet, wild and windy day, with one horse being lunged in the pen next door, and one full of high jinks in the neighbouring turnout cage! She was forward but not silly and coped admirably with the situation!

Although she hasn’t done much formal schooling, she has potential on the flat and there are definitely moments when she drops between hand and leg and produces some really nice work. She’s not your typical ploddy cob, but has a bit more about her so certainly isn’t a dull ride in the arena!

Katherine also really enjoys popping over some jumps! She is regularly used on our Grade 4 group jumping lesson and seems to really relish popping a small fence or two. She is an easy and polite ride into her jumps, and would I suspect, rather enjoy doing a little more jumping!

With a very personable nature, Katherine is a doddle to handle and to lead. I groomed and tacked her up in the stable and she was easy to do and not fussy about having the mud brushed off her face and ears!

A solid little mare, with a real zest for life, Katherine would be perfectly suited to a small adult; or for a larger child. She has all the makings of a super little all-rounder!
