Nimbus – 17.1hh Mare

17.1hh Grey Mare, Foaled 25th March 2014

This smashing mare was imported from Ireland by Sally in May 2019.

Nimbus is superbly put together and really looks the part. She has such star quality and is very eye-catching, so would be an ideal show prospect. With a huge shoulder, pretty refined head and powerful hindquarters, she really fills the eye!

Under saddle, Nimbus is a responsive and sporty, yet safe ride. She moves off the leg well and despite her stature is very athletic in her way of going. Having said this, she is extremely level headed and straight forward.

Nimbus has three well balanced paces and is capable of producing some really super work on the flat. She goes well for a wide variety of people and doesn’t have any quirks or foibles!

This sweetheart is currently used on the riding school for riders that are just learning to jump, through to those jumping a small course of fences. This just proves her genuine, uncomplicated approach to jumping.

She adores jumping, and is enthusiastic to a fence but not strong, staying in a good rhythm on approach and departure! She is currently showing fantastic potential over her fences, with the scope to go much further! She’ll happily pop her way round a small course of fences presently, but watch this space because with this mare, the only way is up!

Nimbus also loves her hacking and has frequently been used as a lead hack horse on Denise’s group hacks. Despite her size she is easy to get on and off to do gates because she is so polite to mount! She is just as happy hacking in a group as she is alone around our fields, and hacks sweetly in a snaffle!

This gorgeous girl really is a gentle giant, with the kindest, sweetest nature. It is often said that a horse’s eye is a good indicator of their temperament, and this couldn’t be truer of Nimbus. She has a huge, soft and soulful eye and the personality to match!

A real poppet to handle in every way, she even stands like a rock to have her mane pulled and ears trimmed!

I know I don’t just speak for myself when I say I’ll be sorry to see this one go!

Nimbus is sold with a Leisure Horse Ireland passport.
