CANDY

Mare

Candy is one of my all time favourites, she’s an easy and lovely mare to deal with. She lives in or out, no vices in or out of the stable. Doesn’t crib/weave/wind suck etc. Good to catch,farrier,bath,lead etc. Good to load just likes to take a minute, walk behind her and she goes straight on. Doesn’t kick or bite, pick all 4 feet up with no issues. I sold candy 2 years ago to a private home where she has been ever since, due to a change in circumstances she has come back to me. She was a favourite then and she’s a favourite now so will only be sold to a 10* home!!

Candy schools nicely on the flat, she’s still green and a little rusty around the edges but doesn’t buck/bronc/rear etc in the school. She’s a straight forward push button ride. Snaffle mouthed and responsive but sensible. Schools in a nice contact in walk and trot but isn’t yet consistent going into canter. With a bit of schooling and time put into her she’d be a cracking horse on the flat. Candy jumps well but again is a little rusty in this area due to not doing a lot of it over the last 2 years. I have taken her xc schooling myself when she was with me before and she jumped everything I asked her to, including ditches,trakenhers,small hedges,table tops,barrels and jumped into water. Just needs getting back into the swing of things and away she goes.

Candy hacks alone and in company, however this is where her quirk lies. She’s fantastic in steady traffic, isn’t phased by cars/bikes/quads/vans etc. But she isn’t keen on other vehicles such as tractors, lorries/Artics, buses etc and has been known to do a small rear then jog forwards. She has done this with me before 2 years ago, she never tried to bolt just panicked when a large attic lorry didn’t slow down coming towards me. For this reason I will not sell to a novice or nervous rider. She would be perfect for somebody who hacks off roads or doesn’t have a lot of larger/heavy traffic around them. I’ve hacked her out today (11/02/19) and came across cars,bikes,vans and a van with a trailer on the back and she was fine and didn’t react what so ever. This also affects her price. So absolutely no time wasters or joy riders or day dreamers.
