Breed: Spotted Draft/Saddlebredx
Franchesa is a sweet, agreeable, uber quick study, talented mare. She was sired by our former stallion and dressage horse, Clarke's Lake and out of a champion bloodline Saddlebred mare. She has tremendous promise and versatility. She can be safely and reliably ridden in and out of the arena by a wide range of skill levels. She has been taught to jump a course. She can go either on the buckle or in a beautiful dressage frame. She moves laterally and schools dressage at first level with 2nd and 3rd level movements. She is BOLD to the fences - although we are careful not to jump her or work her at this young age. She is in training 4 days/week and during each session she is ridden lightly in the arena and then hacked out alone. She ties, trailers and bathes beautifully and is equally at home living out in a large group or in a stall. She gets along with others in the pasture and is about mid-level in the pecking order definitely not an alfa. It is literally impossible to tell when she is in season and because she is bold and not overly sensitive, she is far superior on the ground and in the saddle to most geldings of a similar age and training level. She has tremendous potential as a dressage mount, eventer, or even a local hunter/ jumper or foxhunt/all rounder. Impeccable training, sweet temperament, forgiving and uncomplicated under saddle. The mare of a lifetime for a fortunate person.
