This mare is the one-in-1,000 Thoroughbreds who foxhunts on the buckle, lowers her head to carefully pick through the worst terrain, and goes from a gallop to a halt as soon as she’s asked, standing motionless while her rider listens for hounds.

We didn’t know any of that until recently because she came to us as a solid Novice event horse to be sold into that discipline. We needed to take another horse hunting, and on a whim asked one of our boarders, a rather timid lower level event rider, to come along on Ginny. We knew Ginny was an easy ride but you never know how they’ll react to the chaos of hunting. We told Malinda to just hang on, and that if it didn’t go well we’d come in early.

Early in the hunt we came to a stream crossing where the far bank wasn’t much firmer than quicksand. All the horses went down to their bellies and scrambled away. Ginny did the same but Malinda lost her balance and rolled into the mud. Ginny waited. Malinda got up, walked her to the edge of the field, lowered her stirrup iron, climbed aboard, raised her stirrup iron, got settled, and then galloped away. Other horses stayed back with Malinda but they were jigging and prancing. That was the moment when Malinda fell in love with both Ginny and with hunting.

It’s rare to find a hunt horse like this who also does good dressage and has miles as an event horse. She’s done nine recognized events, the last six at Novice, with no cross county jump penalties in the last six and a dressage best of 28.8 (71.2%).

And most importantly, she’s got perfect legs, a kind eye, and is awfully good looking. She’s not an extravagant mover or jumper. She’s an efficient, calm, partner who will get the job done for you.

Did we mention that she is kind? She really is.
