Lily is a fun, forward mare with a cuddly and loving personality! She has a beautiful face, clean legs and great conformation. In the short time she has been with us, Lily has made progress in basic dressage, exhibited a talent for jumping, and gained a love of trail riding. We have only brushed the surface of Lily’s abilities and potential!
Lily is a granddaughter of the great French distance stallion, Val de l’Orne. I was told by a pedigree expert that Val de l’Orne’s is “one of the best TB jumping lines in existence, and has been for at least 4 generations of sires.”
Lily was a beloved pleasure horse in her “past life.” She is free from blemishes or unsoundness. She stands quietly for the vet and farrier, for clippers, for baths, or just to be loved on in the aisle or stall. Lily loads and unloads willingly from both a straight and slant-load trailer. Currently asking $7500, price negotiable to a terrific home.
*Newsflash!!! March 17, 2012* Lily participated in her first foxhunt and was a superstar! She galloped like a dream on the runs, stood on a loose rein at the checks, and kept her wits when hounds and huntsmen ran past. This mare is so much fun!
*Newsflash!!! May 27, 2012* Lily competed in her first show and captured Grand Champion in a large division!
*Newsflash!!! Nov 4, 2012* Lily stood quietly during the blessing of the hounds at the Opening Meet, then hunted like a champ. Each time out she gets better and better!
Video on the flat and over fences, Mother’s Day 2012:
This video clip shows Lily’s first free jumping school, and first time tackling an in-and-out. I loved watching her figure things out, experiment with the striding, and learn to use her body in new, more powerful ways. The geldings watching from the pasture were certainly impressed 😉 She cleared each fence eagerly and effortlessly, promising a great future over fences.
