Fabulous 2014 15.3 Danish mare, out of Soprano x (Sandro Hit). Don't miss out on this one, she is a showstopper!! This girl is quick and extremely careful. She is brave and willing; her good looks and fabulous uphill canter is one to watch! USEF # 5506014
We picked up Sara at the age of three and started with groundwork through the tutelage of Clinton Anderson methods and natural horsemanship that I have developed over the last several years. We have no isseus with her on the ground. She is very respectful of your space, she loads, ties, clips, baths and stands well for the farrier.
Sara did not start under saddle until she was four and did not start any jumping until about four and half. through her groundwork is where we started to see how talented and smart this mare truly is. Once we started her over fences it has been magical to watch her develop and excel as a jumper. She is quick and smart with where she places her feet. When she pushes off the ground you can see and just hear how scopey she really is.
Sara's 2020 show season was light due to impact of Covid19 limiting shows across zone 10 and the Nation. She did have great success in the 1 meter open and child/adult jumpers with championships and solid rounds.
Sara is one that needs to have a look around the show grounds and morning lunges on the first half of the week to settle in. once she is settled, she is locked on with her job and is spot on around the course. She very rarely has rails and if she touches a jump, she will be sure to over jump the remaining obstacles to ensure not to touch another one on course.
Moves off leg with ease in leg yield, half pass, shoulder in, hunches in and shoulder four at the walk. Trot and canter she can leg yield, shoulder in, haunches in and shoulder four. She is very well balanced in counter canter and can hold it on a 20 meter circle. Her lead changes are effortless and clean you can ask for them anytime.
Sara was started over fences with simple trot in single jumps and now doing full grid work with ease. She is confidant around the course and very adjustable. She will be patient and wait if you find yourself a little short or she will move up and take off a little long. Her form is great over jumps and has been introduced to water trays with no issues. she scoops 1.10 and shows 1.00...certainly ready to move up in 2021.
