At 14.3 hands, Pita is perfectly suited tor a small adult or Jr. rider. She has the conformation of her 16+ sized forbears with a broad, deep chest and powerful hind quarters.
Pita has an easy 12' canter stride and an elastic trot with good rhythm, engagement and suspension. It's easy to see the influence of top European jumping and dressage bloodlines in her movement and form over fences.
She has participated in two competitions at the Beginner Novice level and is schooling Novice. She's a bold jumper but careful (doesn't rush the fences). She's very comfortable with stadium jumping. Auto leads and an adjustable stride.
Pita has the ability to jump height as well. We set up a 3'9 oxer and she hopped over it with room to spare.
She is very friendly and people-oriented. Good with farrier, loads and hauls easily, cross ties or can be tied to the trailer during shows without fuss. Easy to catch and lead. Excellent manners and no vices (biting, kicking, etc).
She is good on trails and generally bomb proof but will shy if startled.
Pita is the ideal mount for a smaller adult who prefers a smaller horse or a Jr. Rider. I would not recommend her for a beginner rider at this time unless under the close supervision of an instructor.
