Exceptionally quiet and trainable Royal Hit filly from a Northern Lewinsky mare (by Northern Congress: Contact/Flaneur). This is one of the last generation of Royal Hit progeny, and this young horse with her conformation and attitude will make a super breeding prospect when her ridden career is ready for a hiatus. On the dam side, Tierney's grandsire is Northern Lewinsky, the sire of NSW squad GP horse XL Overtime. We have retained her full brother for breeding, making her unfortunately surplus to our requirements.
Key to note with this young mare are her length of rein, forward elbow, hindquarter angles and correct action of the hindleg, which comes through underneath her to match the naturally forward reach of the fore. Her movement is swinging and steady and very rideable.
She has recently been started under saddle - the photos and video are of her third ride (January 10 2015). As seen in the video, this young mare is exceptionally calm and quiet, already riding out around the property. She has had error-free training, with around one session a fortnight over the last two months. She is confident and balanced with a rider bareback and under saddle, and accepting of the snaffle. LL Tierney is relaxed, straight and forward with good rhythm and action, is extremely trainable, and quiet in every other aspect of handling.
Tierney is suited to very light riding or spelling until she has grown and is ready to compete. It is not often that the opportunity to buy a two year old this self-evidently quiet and trainable comes around. She is unblemished with clean legs, no scars and no history of any illness or injury, and ready to be shaped into a dressage horse or show hack.
With her temperament, rhythm and cadence this filly will excel in the dressage arena, and her conformation, fine bone and good looks will suit a show home. She is small enough for a youth or lady rider, with enough strength and spring to take up the leg of a taller rider (note I am 5'9"). This prospect is suited to an experienced rider ready to educate her as she grows out, and once established under saddle will suit a youth or intermediate rider for any discipline.
Negotiable to best home. -
