2012, 17.1hh, BWP Oldenburg Mare
(Gatsby x out of an Idocus mare)
For those wanting a "big warmblood" type ride that will be VERY competitive on the flat, has a great gallop, and a desire to jump clean, this horse is for you. She is always in the ribbons and has not put a foot wrong in the entire time that I have had her. Having been slowly developed methodically and carefully, she has come into her own. With three very quality gaits, she can go straight dressage, but is brave and scopey over fences and could do 1.20m+ jumpers easily. This mare is quick footed in all the right ways, very bold and honest to the fences. She has mileage through novice with an amateur, moved up to training and preliminary this season, and is continuing to move up the levels in a professional program. At home she is jumping 1.10m/1.15m courses and shows all the potential in the world. She has the scope and heart for the upper levels of any discipline. She would be best suited to motivated amateur or a young rider in a competitive program as she enjoys to work. She is a kick along ride with an easy feel, goes in a rubber snaffle, but has a big jump feel. I would keep her if I could!
