Ellie is a 12-yr 16.2h Belgian Draft Cross mare. Ellie has years of experience trail riding and is now in her first season hunting with South Creek Foxhounds. She started this summer with hound walks and hunter paces and now hunts twice a week. Ellie is mainly used as a Huntsman’s horse, Whip horse, Fieldmaster, and has started riding out in first flight. She is completely whip broke, respectful of the hounds, and stands quietly at checks. Ellie is the back-up horse that we let other riders and staff borrow when they need something to hunt. Anyone can ride her, she is so easy! Nicely forward but not hot. She happily rides in the front, middle, or back of any group and also hacks out alone, but her favorite place is in the front. Ellie loves to do the hunter paces and will jump any log, coop, ditch, or fence up to 3’6”. She is a point and shoot ride with a smooth jump that won’t bounce the rider out of the tack. Ellie always jumps! She willingly crosses water, bridges, and other trail obstacles. Stands patiently for all of the important tasks – tying, mounting, clipping, braiding, hoof trimming, opening/closing gates. She is easy to load even in the dark with no flashlight. No lunging or prep for this sweet girl. She knows her job and enjoys working. She is the same horse whether she rides out once a week or every day. No problem with crowds, traffic, farm animals, children, dogs, hounds, bad weather, etc. She is not spooky.

Ellie has a nice brain and is quite tolerant of rider mistakes. She is amateur-friendly and okay with timid riders, although she performs best with an intermediate rider. Ellie would be happiest with a rider who enjoys some combination of fox hunting, trail riding, jumping, or cross country. She is a forward ride and requires no crop, which is great…one less thing to hold. She has good conformation and bone structure. She is a barefoot easy keeper with no maintenance, vices, or health issues. Not mareish.
