Strawberry - 2012 Red Roan Sport-type Mare, 14.1 Hands
Strawberry has had over a year of solid training. She has been shown in dressage and scored very well with her free gaits. She even took a 12 year old girl to a 2nd place finish in Training test B. It was her rider's first dressage test in competition! Strawberry has no over-jump and is extremely scopey. With her free gaits and easy jumping style, I think she will be a fantastic eventer,and pony club mount for the rider who is just getting started. I will also continue her training in Western. She has a nice stop already. We took Strawberry on our family vacation to the Black Hills in South Dakota. She was awesome and packed my very beginner 5 year old over some crazy tough trails. She was always steady and reliable no matter how tough things got. Check out her video below!
Currently, Strawberry is being ridden by 9 year old and 6 year old year old girls. They are currently jumping 2'9" courses and Strawberry has room to go up. She has been ridden in a parade and carried the American flag. Strawberry rides through a small town twice per day and never has a problem with traffic, dogs, or commotion.
Update October 2017: Strawberry has been in consistent professional training. I have uploaded a video of her going around 3 foot jumps and schooling Novice and Training level cross country jumps. At the end of the video, Strawberry is showing dressage and 2'6" jumpers with a BEGINNER rider. Her rider had never shown before! Strawberry can step up when needed and pack beginners when needed.
Sold to a wonderful family. Strawberry's 9 year old rider will be hitting the jumper shows and eventing this summer 2018!
