Sale Information

Dazzling Star, or "Ella" as she is known around the barn, came off the track in February of 2018. Without a desire to run, I purchased Ella for the RRP makeover. Ella has been wonderful to train with a willing attitude and beautiful, floaty movements. Ella learns quickly and tries very hard to please. Ella has been trail ridden, shown BN level eventing (double clear, but rider messed up dressage test, so no placing), shown at local 4-H shows, and will be attending a hunter trial in September. Ella loves to trail ride, is not afraid of water, and enjoys the company of other horses on a ride, but is not dependent on them. Ella is a forward ride, but has never offered a runaway. Ella has no special needs or health issues. Ella would excel at fox hunting, low level eventing, and hunter shows. She is a very versatile 'family-horse' and has extensive experience with small children fussing over and brushing her. Ella's ideal rider would be a youth or adult that likes to try lots of new disciplines and is ready to start training and showing their very own horse.
