Ravenna - SOLD!   2005 CWHBA Premium mare, 16 1/2 hh.  Sired by Radjah Z out of Wasabi (Warkanson/Godewind).   Ravenna is currently in training - schooling small hunter and jumper courses, Second Level dressage, and regular hacking in the country.  She has lovely suspension in her gaits with active hind legs and is light to the aids with a strong work ethic. Her basic dressage work is very thorough, having spent time enhancing her relaxed rhythm, correct contact and straightness in all gaits. Lateral work comes easily to her and she is very adustable and supple.  Eye catching,  eager to please and very enjoyable to ride, this big bodied mare takes up a lot of leg and rides more like a 16.2hh mount due to her build and big gaits. Rider in photos is 5'8".

Ravenna is reliably even tempered, never a moody or disobedient mare, she possesses a super work ethic!  Every ride is fun and rewarding.  She is a willing partner and very amateur friendly.  She is always eager to work as soon as you get on, never requiring any lunging prior even in new arenas or after long winter breaks.

This mare is from a selective breeding program from quality parents and she exudes rideability and quality gaits.   She is supple and up in her back and goes in a 'built in' frame easily - it is such a joy to ride horses who are bred to perform!  She has lots of suspension so is big moving yet supple, not jarring to sit.  A soft, responsive mouth that likes quiet hands coupled with a strong back very responsive to seat aids makes for a quiet, easily subtle ride. 

She hadn't had much training until 2013 due to broodmare duties and her trainer having children.  She was started as a 5 year old then just a handful of rides in 2011/12.   In 2013 and 2014 Ravenna has been to dressage and hunter clinics as well as her first shows and she behaves very well away from home, always earning praise from clinicians and judges!  She loads and travels easily and settles into new environments well.  She ties and bathes.  I don't clip so not sure about clippers yet. 
A successful broodmare in the past, she is still a quality broodmare candidate.  Her only foal was Champion of the Saskatchewan Chapter CWHBA Foal Futurity with a premium score of 8 and the German judge recommended him as a stallion prospect.  Westwind is now in his first few months under saddle and was Champion of the Saskatchewan CWHBA Riding Horse Test with a premium score. 

Ravenna is up to date on all herd health (vaccines, deworming, hoof trims).  She has always been sound and healthy, has always been barefoot, is an easy keeper in a mixed herd.  She rides, hacks, jumps and shows in a double broken snaffle, no martingales or spurs. Located at Kindersley, SK.
