Height: 14.2hh

Age: four

Gender: mare

Selling points: “Coleen is a super-sweet and honest mare. She has been cross-country schooling where she jumped everything and really enjoyed herself. She has also been out to jump at some local shows — she isn’t fussed by fillers and is very brave and bold, showing natural ability over a fence. She has three naturally balanced paces and is starting to work well on the flat. She is great to hack too and super in open spaces. Not nasty in any way and is anybody’s ride. We can’t praise this four-year old enough — she is easy to handle and ridden by a 15-year-old. No vices at all and snaffle mouthed at all times.”
