Balenciaga CF - Lovely Affectionate Prix St Georges Mare!
Thursday, September 5, 2019
Balenciaga CF, affectionately known as Buttercup, is truly a one of a kind mare. She is super sweet and easy to handle in the barn and she knows her people and how to melt their hearts. This lovely true black Oldenburg mare was awarded Premium Status at her foal inspection and was also given the title of Foal of Distinction by the OHBS-GOV Inspectors. She has since gone on to have a successful show career during which she has constantly scored in the upper sixties and into the 70's.
She moved up to Prix St Georges this year and shows great potential to continue her success and continue through the levels. While everyone would love a mare as sweet as Buttercup she is not a horse for every rider. She is wonderfully forward thinking, sensitive and kind hearted but she needs a kind and confident rider with a good skill set. She would be an ideal horse for a more petite professional looking for an exciting horse to bring along, a competent/confident JR/YR in a good program who is looking for a horse that they could later take on to U25/GP, or a skilled confident AA looking for a wonderful horse to bring along. She is not well suited to a beginner rider who wants a schooled horse to learn on. Having said all of that, this mare has a lot of potential in right hands.
I've truly enjoyed working with her and seeing her develop in the time that she has been at our stables and I think there is possibly much more to come. She has an incredible work ethic and is the same horse everyday. She just keeps getting better and better. She is easy to load, is well behaved at shows, couldn't be easier to handle, goes in turnout and likes to hack around the property. Right home is a must, inquiries and questions welcome.
