Description – Passchendaele is a 16.3hh, 8 years old, Shire X, black mare.
History – Passchendaele arrived at Bransby Horses after being found abandoned.
Behaviour & Handling – Passchendaele is a lovely, gentle giant with a really kind nature. She is still very green as she has only been backed this summer. She is proving very brave out hacking and will hack alone or in company. She is still quite unbalanced in the school but as her fitness and understanding improves this will get better. Passchendaele is good to do, but would soon learn her own strength if she was allowed to.
Perfect Match – Passchendaele really enjoys her hacking and would suit a home where she could go on lots of pleasure rides. Passchendaele has started doing some schooling and has popped over some small fences, nothing phases her, but she does need a confident and competent rider to help continue her education. Passchendaele loves attention and would thrive in a one to one home with a knowledgeable person.
