Winter Eclipse - May 2004, 16h Holsteiner mare. "Ellie" has a lovely personality and willing work attitude. She is light in the hand and responsive to the leg. Ellie's sire is Winter Chill, a 17h World Cup qualifier jumper. Also in her pedigree, the famous jumper South Pacific, and none other than Pik Bube, the great dressage champion and influential sire.
Ellie has shown extensively in the jumper ring, much of it with her junior owner, but we think she'd do well in dressage also. She knows all the first level movements and some 2nd level as well (rein back, shoulder-in, simple and flying change, turn on the haunches). She is mild mannered, not spooky, with a been-there, done-that outlook.
Loves trail riding, trailers, clips, etc with ease. Can live in a group or by herself. Just a nice, nice horse.
