Minnie (Its In The Bank, BS no. 393831, 205 points)
16.1 13 year old ISH mare
Minnie is an exceptionally talented, fun horse but is also anxious meaning she needs a calm, confident rider to get the best out of her.
Minnie excels at show jumping, she has plenty of experience and would do 90/100 all day long with a BS and Irish record to prove this! Minnie is very fast off the clock with her stretch and jump off turns. Recently, she came second in a very competitive unaffiliated 90cm class against both horses and ponies, she has just been reregistered BS, and is jumping 110 in practice.
We have also done some more cross country with her and she loves it! Neer looks at ditches or water or falters at steps! With the right rider who will chat to her and understand her insecurities she will be very successful as she is ridiculously scopey and covers the ground well without being strong. We recently attended Swalcliffe Unaffiliated 80cm, finishing with a double clear and 9th place (which would have been 5th without time faults cross country due to rider being used to 100cm classes and forgetting her watch!
Minnie is great to hack and, judging by this and her love of jumping, we think she would love to team chase or hunt!
Minnie has incredible paces and the ability to do an amazing test. However, she is worried in this phase, and schooling at home, so would take a fair amount of patience to get the best out of her. We have only dressaged once (on grass while Eventing with a big atmosphere), and feel she could do better.
Minnie is the easiest horse to handle, good to box, clip and shoe (she is currently barefoot - hacking in Cavallo Hoof Boots - but this is recent and she was previously shod). Can become clingy to other horses in the field and this can make her tricky to catch, but only if the other horse is also tricky to catch. Minnie has not been sick or sorry in all the time we've known her, and has not had any unsoundness. Previously, she has had injuries to her eye and a tendon but these do not affect her in any way. Teeth and Back kept up to date by Clara Peake Equinedentist and A.P.Equine & Canine McTimoney Chiropractor.
Due to her anxious disposition and the importance of a 10*, long term, loving home, she is up for sale at just £2000 but we will seriously consider any offer. This is a seriously talented horse but will only be going to people who intend to keep this girl forever, and home will be vetted.
