Knockmeal Jump For Joy - 15.3hh 6yo bay registered ISH mare. Ideal competitive amateurs horse for BS and BE.
Beautiful girl inside and out. An athletic, sporty model with good limbs and a great outlook. Cara has the sweetest nature, a kind, gentle, cuddly horse who thrives on a close relationship to her rider. She is a sensitive mare who really tunes in and tries very hard to respond to every request. For this reason she would best suit a quiet, competent, confident rider with good feel. She would not be suitable for a novice because she will pick up on subtle cues.
Cara rides well on the flat with a lovely soft mouth. She can have the odd fussy moment in the contact but the better you ride her the better she goes. Cara goes best on the flat for a rider with good feel and good hands. Not at all naughty or silly, Forward and responsive to the aids with basic laterals and flying changes established. She has a super attitude to her work and is very willing and trainable. A real pleasure to work with and will produce a lovely and correct test with the right rider. Did her first dressage test this year with lots of positive feedback from the judge.
Cara really excels over a fence. She is bold and brave, super careful and with plenty of scope to produce on. Forward to a fence and takes you in without being strong. Very rideable and adjustable but can help you out when needed. Goes best when allowed to keep travelling to a fence rather than being strangled in. Has also cross country schooled proving to be equally bold with plenty of stride to cover the ground. Has jumped training shows and hunter trials in Ireland and has plenty of scope and ability to go up the levels either BS or BE. Fit and ready to get on and go now.
Good to hack on her own and in company. Good on the roads and in open spaces. She is a bright, sporty horse who is alert to the world around her and will look at the odd scary thing. Currently ridden in a snaffle for all activities, doesn't have a history of bucking/rearing/bolting etc. A real sweetheart to do on the ground, good in every way, loads and travels like a pro. Suitable for a competitive teen.
