"Dolly" is a 4 year old chestnut draft cross mare with a lovely flaxen mane and tail. She currently stands 14.3 with a big barrel that takes up leg. Dolly has nice conformation, great feet, a kind eye and sweet expression.

Dolly has half a season's experience in the Rockbridge Hunt field and is showing exceptional promise as a field hunter. She willingly navigates logs, ditches, water, mud, mountains and bridges. Dolly is not spooky, forward, hot or heavy in the hunt field, stands like a perfect lady at checks and is easy to rate on a chase. Great around hounds too! She has been slowly and correctly introduced to the sport and is ready to continue her hunt career with an amateur.

In the ring, Dolly quietly and willingly picks up both leads, trots in/canters out of lines, jumps oxers, and is learning to bend and come round. She's even been dragging poles and is totally unfazed by farm dogs and cattle (she licks them).

Dolly has schooled advanced green and beginner novice cross-country and was in the ribbons at her first advanced green combined training competition. She didn't peek at anything when she schooled in an indoor ring, and is fabulous on the trail–she does not tailgate the horse in front of her, is very surefooted and doesn't get quick on the way back to the trailers. One person can load her and she travels quietly.

Dolly is a pleasure to work with–she learns quickly, retains her lessons well and is a fun project to bring along. Although we would love to see her in the hunt field, she is also showing a real aptitude for eventing or dressage. Currently barefoot with no history of colic or injury and no vices, Dolly is your chance to get an affordable draft cross! Grab her now before her price increases with more show miles--more photos and videos available.
