“Estella Bebe” - SOLD
15.3 hands : 3 year old : Thoroughbred : Mare
Estrella Bebe is a 3 year old unraced Thoroughbred mare standing 15.3 hands high and growing. Exceptional is how we describe this fantastic young horse. Don’t let Thoroughbred scare you. She is built like a warmblood, moves like a hunter, and has the brain of a schoolmaster. Estrella has been smart and honest with everything we have thrown her way. She has been started over small fences, has seen the cross country field, and has been on the trails as well. This mare is one we won’t mind keeping around to develop and grow with. The absolute best home is a must! Horses like her are few and far between.
In the ring, Estrella is eager to do whatever is asked of her. She will happily go around slowly and quietly, but she will go into a frame and get to work when asked. She has 3 floaty, hunter-like gaits that will make everyone stop and stare. She will go around on a loose rein or in a frame when asked. Estrella is learning her changes and how to work off the leg. This mare is smart and willing with anything you ask or teach. Estrella has done lines and started over small courses. Everyone loves this ladies style and movement over fences. Estrella is also content just giving the little ones pony rides around the farm.
Off property, Estrella settles in quickly to whatever activity you do. We have taken her cross country schooling and on trail rides. Out cross country schooling, Estrella was quick to pick up on the job at hand. She jumped down banks into water, jumped out of the water, over small logs, and over ditches. As she gets older she will be very easy to move up the levels as she is honest and as straightforward as you can ask for, for a horse her age. On hunter paces and trail rides, Estrella is happy to see new places and prefers to be the leader or towards the front of the pack. She gets more confident and relaxed on every ride. She’s a fast learner, and the more she sees, the more she learns. We have trailered her along to a few local shows to get her used to the environment. We have high hopes for Estrella in the show ring in the future!
In the barn, Estrella has great manners and acts mature and respectable with adults and children. She can easily be handled by the lesson students and loves the attention they give her. She does not act mare-ish around the barn. When she is turned out, she goes out with mares and geldings with no issues. Estrella is a breeze to clip and braid, stands on the crossties to be groomed and bathed, and is an overall a pleasure to have in the barn.
Estrella is one of a kind. No one will believe you when you tell them she is a thoroughbred! She has the movement, brains, personality, and attitude to make a successful partner in any discipline. However, if finished to be a hunter or eventer, we wouldn’t be surprised to see her go to the top levels. This mare can easily be fine tuned and finished by a junior or amateur under a trainer’s supervision. Even still, she is talented enough for a professional to enjoy and bring along themselves. Estrella will only get better with age and experience. If you want a good minded, drop-dead gorgeous mare with all the talent in the world, look no further. In a couple of years when she is winning every competition make sure you’re the owner, and not wishing you were. She is sound with no vices. She loads, clips, ties, bathes, and stands for the farrier. Located in Gap, Pennsylvania. Priced at $15,000. Inquiries may phone 717-917-7213 or 908-645-2127
