Update -- Emma is showing successfully and has
National points in Novice Non-Pro HUS, Novice Non-Pro
Huntseat Equitation, Non-Pro Hunter Under Saddle, Junior
Hunter Under Saddle, Hunter Hack and Hunter In Hand Mares
(approaching her ROM).
Emma is a big beautiful mare with a
disposition of gold and talent to spare! We got Emma
just recently when a client was looking for a 2 year old
and liked our Straw Berry and didn't feel that Emma was
going to make a World caliber Open horse in the time frame
they were working in.
Her bloodlines are impeccable. Her
mother is un-shown but her grandmother is the great
Charlie's Girl, owned, shown and promoted by Rosie Kling
of Grayling Farms. Emma's sire is All Hands On Zip,
multiple World Champion and sire of numerous World /National Champions in Open, Non-Pro
& Youth events.
We would definitely be keeping this mare
if we did not already have two 4 year old HUS mares
to get shown. Emma should get out there and
be shown before settling down to have babies.
Emma was not started until she was a 3
year old so there was less risk of any damage done to
growing bones. She has been started and trained by
Terry Thompson Inc and is going very well under saddle for
us here on the farm..
This mare is a National/World
caliber HUS mare in Non-Pro and Youth classes.
Especially with her good mind and tons of try -- she will
always be working to do what you want her to do.
