TOFFEE

14.2HH 3 year old mare.

Toffee was backed in January then turned away to mature. She was a very easy girl to back and is now riding away quietly. Toffee is being brought on slowly and nothing seems to phase her. She happily goes on short hacks alone or in company. She is a steady ride and has a great temperament.

Toffee has good manners on the ground. She is good to catch, groom, tack up and lead. She lives out all year round with mares and geldings, she is rugged in winter. She has no health issues or vices known to us and is open to any vettings/xrays you require.

No novices - although quiet she is only 3 and requires someone who can carry on her education.
