Liatha has had extensive foxhunting experience in Ireland (she can be in the front of the first field or the last horse in the 3rd field and is quite happy in either place), has competed in show jumping at 1M, and has schooled higher at home (including with me when I tried her, and 1.05 M was crazy easy for her). This horse was started thoughtfully and carefully, and was not broke to ride until she was 4.5 years old. She was turned out to grow after starting her under tack for a few months. I purchased this mare from her breeder who is potentially the most knowledgeable horseman I have ever met. She has been ridden on a consistent basis by an excellent professional, the breeder's son, for about a year and a half now. She is a beautiful dapple grey in color. She's a lady on the ground and has lovely manners. She is a powerhouse of a jumper and is ready to win at the jumpers or eventing. She does not get tired and has the energy to go all day, but in a workwoman like manner. She has the Irish horse willing and smart brain with the TB heart and lungs. She was not even puffing when I took her on a 1 hour 10 min hack up a mountain and through a forest in Ireland at a good clip. She was even very sure footed when trotting on slippery pavement when we had to do so to get out of the way of cars on a narrow and windy road! She is a very honest jumper and has a "what can I do for you" attitude all the time. Breeder feels that I could do a two star 3 day event pretty darn quickly with her. You can set her on a cruise control speed of your choice and she just stays there until you tell her otherwise, for all different kinds of work, although she is very forward minded. She is bred to the nines, is all class, is roughly 25-75% Irish Draught and TB. She is by Clover Brigade who is a five star eventer and a 4 star show jumper who has won grand prix's, sired no less than 21 two star - 5 star eventers or 4 star show jumpers, and is the sire of the very famous Kilrodan Abbott. Liatha is out of Loughnatousa Kismet, who is by a Northern Dancer (one of the best TB's of all time) line. This horse has killer conformation, is sturdy, and had a whistle clean PPE, and by whistle clean, I mean not even any kind of blip in the radar whatsoever including on the x rays. I don't think I have ever seen such a spotless PPE in my 37+ years with horses. She has excellent feet! Call for price.
