Peppy's Blonde Cupidol - "Nelly"
2007 - 15.2hh - Quarter Horse - Mare - Grey
Show record through 3rd level with AA
Schooling 4th level
Light in the bridle, easy to sit and effortless in the lateral work
"Nelly" has the looks, movement and muscling of a smaller warmblood. Her Quarter Horse breeding surprises almost everyone who sees her perform. Nelly has been trained over the past 6 years by myself, a USDF Gold Medal Grand Prix rider, from her very first canters all the way to 4th level. She is the epitome of my beliefs - any horse with a desire to learn and please their rider, with some overall athleticism can excel up the levels of dressage. Nelly wants to get it right. She wants to understand how to make her rider happy, do her job correctly and check off her to do list for the day's lesson.
She is as light as the weight of the reins in the rider's hand. She is comfortable to sit, and also very responsive and in tune to the rider's seat. She is extremely easy to maneuver through all of the lateral work - leg yields, shoulder-in, haunches-in, and half pass in all 3 gaits. The single flying changes are accessible to most any rider from the proper aids. The tempis and pirouettes are getting better with every ride as she builds even more strength. I can certainly see Nelly cantering down a centerline for a Prix St. George in her future. So far, she has scores over 60% at training through 3rd level. This includes helping one of my adult amateur clients achieve her USDF Bronze Medal 🏅
I love Nelly's big personality. She really bonds with her people. She would frequently whinny at my car, then stare at me until I gave her a scratch. She inhales her post-work out carrots. When hosing she flaps her lips in the water. She is most certainly a character and fun to be around. Great for all routine tasks - vet, farrier, grooming, clipping, cross ties, tying, tacking, bathing, etc. She is healthy, barefoot behind and sound with no prexisiting injuries.
