SE Rumour Has It
Rumour is a 17.3 16 yo warmblood/thoroughbred mare by Ramirez out of a 'Hollin Rock Lutha' mare Belle?
Bred by Brent Jurry - Started by Christine Weal.
We purchased Rumour last year for my teenage daughter to complete her competitive years on and she hasn't put a foot wrong.
Unfortunately due to school and looming University commitments we have made the hard decision to sell her.

Dressage: She has expressive paces. Flying changes for 2 x and 3 x Half pass, leg yield, shoulder in, walk pirouettes. Collection and Medium and Extended Trot and Canter. Very adjustable. Working in a rubber mullen mouth. Competed to Level 6 but still needs consolidating and is secure at level 5.
She would make a great school master for a tall rider.

Jumping: Forward and taking the rider, she is quick on her feet with a careful jump. Seasoned and very capable Rumour is a sensitive but brave horse who knows her job. Rumour has had success at Pro Am and is a confident jumper 110 - 130

XC: Brave and ground covering this mare has made a very convincing start to the eventing scene. Jumping comes easily for her, ditches, water, banks etc… Her requirement is more outings. She is still rather gawky looking at the surrounds and the space. Having been a largely ring focused horse the idea of galloping out into the wide open country is foreign to her. But she does go and has tackled, Puhinui 95, Rotorua 105, Hastings 1*, WEC 95, Kihikihi 1*, Taupo1*, Barge 95, Schooling Spring Bush and other training outings.
With some more time in the field I think this mare would happily take on 2* and in the right hands perhaps 3*

Rumour is super smoochy, loves a good grooming and always tries her absolute best.
I think she responds best to a female rider or a sensitive soft male.
She can do anything. Rumour is a real head turner for sure.

Soundness and Maintenance: We had a thorough vet check as did the previous owner. Her health and well being is solid.
She is easy to feed and loves hay and drinks well at shows. Rumour is a very uncomplicated horse.
Currently stabled at night. Loves a routine.

Transport: Loves to truck, good to float (float needs to be large and spacious as she is a tall horse)

Easy to Shoe, stud, worm, clip, ride in groups and alone - Forest and beach.

An absolute dream at shows.

She will continue to be ridden and taken out as much as possible until sold.
Available to view at a professional yard with a variety of jumps to school over.

Serious inquiries only please, this is a very hard sale and she will only go to the best home.
