Angel is a 16H Clydesdale/TB mare who rides and drives. She is quiet, well built and a nice quality mare from a well respected Canadian breeder and show judge.
8/25/13 update: Just finishing up 30 days training with one of my former riders and former top VSHA rider, she is jumping courses, gets her landing leads and lead changes, is comfortable and adjustable on uneven terrain, she goes to her first hunter show this weekend and is ready to begin a career hunter pacing and foxhunting.
Check out our facebook group and fohunting prospects albums for more clips and pics of Angel in her daily training.
7/24/13 update: What a nice mare! Typical Clydesdalex. Very versatile mare with a steady eddy type demeanor. All of the chrome for the hunters, conformation for dressage, natural jumping form, sensible type that we use a lead to teach others. Accepting and a quick study. Great all around mare. Going to be a crackerjack hunt horse, super eventer, what ever she needs to do...she has the goods.
3/13/13 update: I've spent quite a bit of time with Angel and she is a very nice, quality and temperamented mare. She is kind. She arrived here with a halter that was too tight, it had been on her for over one week and had dug into her cheek. She acted headshy. I put her in the barn and had to earn her trust before she would let me remove it. Once she did..what a wonderful mare emerged. She stands quietly, endures mane pulling without complaint, was saddled, and ridden w,t,c in the arena and was great. She moves with a very flat knee...enough so to do well in the hunters. She is a mare with class, subtle, beauty. There is nothing dramatic, loud or boisterous about this mare. She is a deep, rich mahogany bay, with fabulous conformation. She would make a fancy hunter or dressage mount and I am certain would excell at eventing or foxhunting. She is sturdy and sound, tracks up beautifully.. Nice, nice, soft and dainty mare with a large and expressive eye and well made head.
2/26/13 update: Angel arrived in Virginia today.
