Price Reduced! Stunning Mare Dessage or Show Star!Horses - Pine Grove, 40 Bobs Range Rd, Orangeville NSW 2570 -
HL Black Orchid - "Ebony" - is a stunning 15.2, 6yo, jet black warmblood mare. This lovely mare exudes quality and is the ideal mix of Warmblood and Quality TB breeding to produce a light, athletic, and compact type to suit an ambitious teenage or lady rider. With her true black coat and 4 white socks Ebony turns heads everywhere she goes. Ebony has a floating trot and rocking horse canter and is hard to take your eyes off of when she is travelling around the arena. While still learning her craft, Ebony is light and elastic in the contact and has a trainable attitude. She is forward going and sensitive to the aids without being spooky, hot, or fizzy but does requires a rider who is experienced and tactful in the saddle. She improves with every ride and shows so much potential for the future.
Bred in the purple Ebony is by the imported Warmblood Stallion Don Gold out of a competitive TB show mare WhyTop Dreamtime bred by Mel Waller. This impeccable breeding would make her an asset to any breeding program and ensures a career in the broodmare paddock later on.
Ebony had a very successul newcomer show season as a 4yo in 2018, winning numerous broad sashes and easily qualifying for Royals and Grand Nationals. She is a straightforward and reliable ride and was used as a catch ride for numerous teenage riders at Grand Nationals and carried each safely to good results.
Ebony was purchased by her current teenage rider in 2019 as a Dressage and Rider Class mount coming off of a small Galloway and has been an excellent stepping stone to develop the tact and finesse that a larger horse requires while still being soft and manageable enough. Ebony is very light in the contact and and never pulls or leans. While she is young, she is easily learning Shoulder In, Walk Canter Transitions, Counter Canter, and Leg Yield and is starting Half Pass and flying changes. Unfortunately 2020 has only allowed for one competitive outing however Ebony carried her rider to a win in the Small Hack and Rider Class. She has travelled from SA to Sydney twice with maturity of horses 3 times her age! She is unfazed by show or arena environment and has a calm workmanlike approach to anything that crosses her path.
While not being overly "marey" on the ground Ebony can be "opinionated" and she does take some time to form a bond with a new rider. Your first ride won't be your best ride. However once you have develped a rapport with Ebony she has a fantastic work ethic and is very trainable. You have to make yourself get off she is so fun to ride! She is safe to hack out alone or in company and thrives in consistent work with a confident rider. She can go straight to the ring and works as well out as she does at home - you don't loose anything to distraction or lack of focus. Ebony is an excellent doer, and is easy to clip, shoe, prepare for shows, and loads and travels very well.
Unfortunately for us her current rider is moving onto a large hack so Ebony is sadly offered for sale. Despite much heartache in the family Ebony deserves to start forming her next partnership where she can achieve all she has to give!
Ebony comes with a full wardrobe of rugs and custom, made to measure gear.
A lovely mare, Ebony is a young warmblood and will only be sold to a competent home, preferably under professional guidance, where she can blossom and achieve her true potential.
