Ballyhea Lisa Marie, aka "Taylor" is a 6 y/o 16.3 hand dapple grey Irish Sport Horse mare who hails from southern Ireland. This striking mare is both level headed and bold, embodying the typical “Traditional Irish Horse,” and is a serious upper level prospect. Although the Horse Sport Ireland website makes her look like she is 60% TB, if you go back 10 lines of her breeding and do the calculations yourself, she is actually 67% TB. She comes from serious bloodlines including the likes of Clover Hill, Ginger Dick, Northern Dancer, and Sham!
This young lady was raised properly, as she was started as a 4 year old, and was mostly hacked during that year. She wasn’t jumped on any kind of consistent basis until she had been ridden for 15 months, so she was given time to mature and develop a top line. She has been a teenager’s horse from the start, taking care of her kid at all times, and in fact was only available because her kid is going abroad for college. She is a very honest jumper who wants to jump cleanly, and was one of two clean rides at her first SJ show. She has not shown that much due to covid, but she recently started showing with excellent results!
Taylor is priced at $54,500 if she is purchased before she leaves the CEM Quarantine facility with Dr. Bill Ley, in Boyce, VA on October 20.
Show jumpers and eventers take notice of this one!!! Introducing Loughnatousa Susie, a 5 y/o 16.1 hand mare who is being imported from Ireland. She is by Quidam Junior I, who is by Quidam de Revel, who won a BRONZE MEDAL for team show jumping and finished 4th individually at the Barcelona OLYMPICS in 1992, so she is bred to jump!
Quidam Junior I is registered KWPN, but all of his ancestors are SF. Susie is out of a TB mare, and as such, she is 82% TB, and therefore, has the “blood” for eventing as well as the fancy movement for dressage.
This lady has been raised right, was given time to grow, was not started until she was 4, and has been ridden lightly as a 5 y/o. She just started showing and has jumped clean! Susie is ready to make someone really happy once she arrives here and is a serious upper level prospect for show jumping and eventing!
Video above is her showing in 1.0M jumpers in Ireland on September 19th, 2020, during which she came in 4th in a large class. As you can see, she is very balanced for her age, takes the long ones, the short ones, does double triple combinations with no problem, and has her lead changes.
Susie is priced at $56,500 if she is purchased before she leaves the CEM Quarantine facility with Dr. Bill Ley, in Boyce, VA on October 20.
