Canadian-bred eventers have done quite well for themselves in the sport. A couple recent examples include Foxwood High, ridden by Selena O’Hanlon, and Riddle Master, ridden by Rebecca Howard, both of which became Team Canada Olympic and WEG veterans.
When three Canadian-bred mares popped up on Sport Horse Nation this month, I thought, “well, here’s my next Sport Horse Nation Spotlight theme!” One’s a Canadian Thoroughbred, one’s a Canadian Sport Horse, and the third is a Canadian-bred Holsteiner. All three have been heading down the eventing path, but their owners note that they’re multi-talented, versatile candidates for other disciplines as well. Which is the hallmark of eventing potential, really! Two have made their way down into the U.S. (to Aiken and Texas) and the other is in Quebec.
Come and get ’em!
2014 15.2H Black Canadian TB Mare
Freddie is a fantastic option for eventing, dressage, or jumpers! She was recently 5th finishing on her dressage score of 32 at BN!
She jumps a 3’ course comfortably. She is very easy going, safe, and brave to the fences in both SJ and XC. No spook or funny business. She is sweet and reasonable in the barn.
Happy to trail ride by herself or in a group! She is lovely in the bridle for the flat, with three nice gaits. Freddie is very suitable for a Jr/AA or child! A seriously nice, no drama, intelligent, and willing mare!
Located in Aiken, SC.
Mirador is a beautiful dark bay Canadian Sport Horse mare, 8 years old (2014), 16.2h
She is very easy to ride and handle around the barn. A kick ride, she is not mareish and is the same horse whether she is ridden every day or has had a month off. No prep needed and is the same horse on and off property. All of her training was done by her AA owner and she has packed kids along in a lesson without putting a foot wrong.
She is currently in an eventing program and has show experience at Beginner Novice and is schooling Novice. She could continue to event, but we would also see her as a hunter with her great movement and jump.
Mirador is sound, an easy keeper, currently with front shoes only and good solid feet, requires no maintenance and goes out with a group of mares. She trailers easily, clips, stands for the vet and farrier, etc. Truly a gem!
Located in Ascot Corner, Quebec. 45 min from I-91 and 2 hrs from I-87. Price in CAD$
