About the horse
Flash is a really striking 11yo WB mare approx 16.3hh by Raphael Type Flash is an amazing type. Beautifully uphill, she is a very impressive horse, built for performance. Prior Experience Flash has limited competition experience with scores in prelim dressage with her current owner. It has been difficult for her to get her competing much over the past 2 years with COVID restrictions. Prior to that, she was trained by reputable dressage trainers. Temperament Flash is a serious athlete and performance horse, this means she is big and powerful and although she is generally sensible, does require a competent handler and rider. She is well behaved and enjoys hacking out. She can be a bit stubborn at times when she doesn’t want to go forward. Paces Flash has exceptional paces. She has an absolutely outstanding canter, and a flashy trot and clear, active walk. She has the movement to excel in dressage, and the talent to progress up the levels with wow factor. Dressage Training Rhythm - Flash maintains an amazing regular, consistent rhythm once you get her forward. She can take a bit of kicking to get her in front of the leg but once she’s there, she feels amazing. Suppleness - She is wiling to bend both ways and understands inside leg to outside connection. She is both laterally and longitudinally supple willing to seek the contact and reach for the bit. Contact -She is naturally secure in the contact, and really starting to build strength in her hind quarters and develop a higher level of self-carriage. Laterals - Flash is working at a novice level on the flat and training some of the elementary work such as shoulder-in, walk-canter, counter canter etc. Jumping Flash doesn’t really enjoy jumping and we would prefer to see her in a dressage home where she can excel in the discipline she has the most talent for. Rider Suitability Flash is a rare opportunity to secure an elite level dressage prospect. Although she is a bit older for her level of experience, she has the talent to really progress and would excel with a competent, ambitious trainer willing to continue her training and help her achieve her true potential as a dressage star.
