Misty arrived at Underhill from IrMisty arrived at Underhill from Ireland in May and settled in immediately.  She rides alone & in company on hacks and in the arena.  She has very good paces and is quite trainable.  She has a capable jump and could excel as a competition horse with regular schooling - already in the ribbons at local shows. 

Misty recently attended pony club camp for 4 days, doing sj, xc, dressage and a musical ride.  Recently she crossed Wales on the 4 day annual long distance ride from Llangunllo to Ynyslas beach, carrying both an experienced rider and a relative novice  without putting a foot wrong, across rough terrain, bogs, lanes & main roads and finally the beach and sea.  Since then she has ridden around bridleways in Shropshire for 3 days - Misty will do it all, RC, PC comps, fun rides etc. 

She is very clever on her feet but not a ‘hot’ horse.  She is quiet to catch, groom, wash, shoe, load, travel, in traffic etc. etc.  She is a darling!  Has been regularly wormed and seen dentist.  A very talented young lady looking for a competitive /  fun family home.

Buying horses and ponies

We are prepared to consider purchasing horses/ponies when it is clear that the owner and horse's "chemistry" is not compatible. Matching the horse to the person is all important to the well being of both and is not necessarily a failure if things do not work out. It is better to admit it and move on.
