Show Mileage and Potential:  Rickie started showing in the 2'6" divisions in 2015 and accumulated a number of nice ribbons at several "A" shows to include HITS Saugerties, Old Salem Farm and Gardnertown.  She moved up to 3' in December of 2015 and began showing in the Pre-Greens.  In July of 2016 she debuted in the 3'3" Performance Hunters at HITS and in August she accumulated some mileage in the Children's Hunters 14 & Under also at HITS.  Rickie is very easy to get along with and she has a lot of utility.  We think she would be a great partner for an experienced amateur/junior rider looking for a 3' or 3'3" partner.  We also believe she would be suitable for a child/adult looking for a simple, honest, "point and shoot" 2'-6" mount that they can show today and move up with at a later date. 

Under Saddle: Rickie has her own gentle motor, maintains a nice consistent pace and has a rhythmical canter.  She is also adjustable and responsive.  Rickie is a brave mare that will always go to the jump.  She has a good size barrel that takes up a leg nicely. 

Trainability:  Rickie aims to please.  She is smart, retains her training well and has a good work ethic.  At shows, Rickie requires minimal prep; just a quick longe in the morning and a light schooling before her classes.  She has great lead changes and she doesn't need to see the fences before showing.  Rickie is a kind, forgiving, and consistent partner.  She has a great brain, is very willing, honest and dependable.  Rickie is a gentle mare that is very level-headed with no spook. 

Preferred Rider:  Rickie has a lovely natural bascule that appeals to the judges.  Rickie works hard for her rider and she has a lot of heart.  She learns quickly and while she can take the occassional joke, she loves to be paired with a partner she can trust. 

On the Ground:  Rickie is well mannered, she loves to be groomed and bathed and she adores attention and treats.  This gentle, agreeable mare is very tolerant, has no vices and is a pleasure to have in the barn.  Rickie is very easy on the ground.  She clips, loads, bathes and ships.  Rickie is very well mannered with a content personality. 

Temperament:  Rickie is a quiet, sweet, affectionate mare.  She is easy-going and laid back. 

Program:  She is currently being ridden 5-6 times a week with 1-2 of those rides being training rides.  Rickie is an extremely easy keeper.  Like all our horses, Rickie receives turnout as weather permits.  She is content being turned out alone or with another mild-mannered pasture mate.
