Freya is a 2005 Friesian Cross mare. Standing 16.2+, and a gentle giant of a horse. She is registered with Friesian Sport Horse as “Do You Believe in Magic”. This lovely bay mare is by Voltaire and out of Wingfoot Express (Thoroughbred).
Several years ago she received professional dressage training and was successfully shown through training level with mid-high 60’s and schooling 1st level. To no fault of her own, she spent some time out to pasture where she was ridden off and on by an advanced beginner.
She has been in FULL Dressage training for the last 4 months and will continue until sold.
Currently schooling under Classical Dressage principles. Her gaits are lofty and smooth, she is a very quiet and elegant horse. She Is building strength in her transitions, schooling shoulder in/out down as well as leg yielding. Her travers, renvers and half pass are coming along wonderfully. She is responsive and light to the rein. Also learning to be responsive to leg and seat aids. She is patient, kind and forgiving and looking for her person to bond with and have a partnership with.
Her calm and quiet demeanor makes her suitable for advanced beginners or the amateur rider. She is a total confidence builder that can go from the show ring to the great outdoors without batting an eye. This beautiful mare is ready to go in any direction, from Western Dressage to Traditional, Working Equitation, Trail Obstacle, Backwood or Pleasure trail riding ~ This mare can not only do it, but you will be getting all the oohs and awes.
Freya spent the first half of her life out on all sorts of trail and camping adventures. Out on a trail or in camp, she is not spooky or anxious and is considered beginner, husband, and mother-in-law safe, just point, follow and have fun. OH and is she ever smooth!! She is She has been pretty unflappable that I have seen and been told. Freya baths, clips, single ties, cross ties, trailers well in slant or straight, stands for farrier, great for chiro/bodywork, average keeper for her size, UTD on teeth, shots and deworming.
Her vices are very few - she can be girthy (history of bad saddle fit) so sometimes she can fidget while being tacked up OR if her friends are all calling for her. She can be a little nervous when in a new barn but settles down quickly. She has never done anything bad. While she is safe for a beginner, due to her size and low miles, she would do best with an intermediate rider or someone who understands how to put a horse together with tact and softness.
Her current owner is having a big change in life and would like this lovely mare to find a home where she will be appreciated for the kind, talented and patient mare she is.
She will come with 2 blankets if needed and a saddle could possibly be included in the sale.
Asking $9500 - she will be priced higher in spring after more training - get her now!!
