Chocolate Liqueur - Bailey - is a 12 year old (November 2005) 16hh stationbred mare. She has been with us for 3 years and has definitely become a member of the family so this is a very reluctant sale, only as rider is over committed.
Bailey has evented up to CCI1* level and is the ideal first hack for a keen rider or first upper level competition/ junior rider horse. As well as eventing she has show jumped with success to 1.20m, won every show hunter round she has done, and has competed to level 3 dressage. Her perfect nature and attitude makes her so easy to have around. Perfect to clip, worm, shoe, truck, float, hack out, bring back in to work - nothing is an issue.
Bailey has solid dressage schooling up to level 4 with half passes established as well as shoulder in, travers, walk pirouettes, rein back, leg yield, counter canter etc. Naturally not a big mover she makes up for it in her willingness and trainability - she goes about everything text book correctly.
With perfect jumping form Bailey performs great in the show hunter ring as well as delighting crowds as she eats up cross country courses. At the recent Kihikihi horse trial she was described to make the tough 1* track look ‘effortless.’ She has a clean tidy jump and only touches rails when it cannot be avoided! She has been rated highly by Mark Todd and Blyth Tait who adore her rhythm and way of going. Snaffle mouth all phases this season, there’s nothing you can say wrong about her. I’ve passed my NZPCA A certificate on her, gone from 95cm eventing to 1*, done my first FEI events, gone to PC champs for dressage, eventing and show jumping… She’s so easy. Your mum can happily hop on her and go for a hack the same way you can send your kid off at the start box and know they will get home smiling.
Extremely reluctant sale of a very special mare. Will only be sold to absolutely the best of homes to continue the life of loving her job. Serious enquires only please.
