Cookie (Anything At All) is a 14.2hh 7yo dun registered Connemara mare, that we have owned since a 2yo. Cookie and my daughter have developed together, taking Cookie from a 2yo when my daughter was 11, to our current situation where Cookie is 7yo and my daughter is a 16. She has been steadily brought on to where she is now. She is a true part of our family and has a wonderful personality.

Cookie in 2019 was competing at 90cm successfully with multiple clears and placings. However, in 2020, due to lockdown and the fact that my daughter is now 16yo and 5ft 5 Cookie is now sadly hopelessly outgrown and therefore we have not been able to make the step up to 100cm. 

Cookie has been a super consistent junior BRC team member, reaching many championships; in 2019 she posted a clear round on a complex track in the novice winter championships and when the team placed 2nd, Cookie placed just outside the top ten individually. 

Cookie went double clear in the arena eventing 80cm championships 2020 where time faults pushed her to 15th individually and nationally and team 3rd place. She is ready to start her affiliated career and would make a superb event pony with a little work on her flatwork.

Cookie has taken part in numerous lessons and RC camps, staying away at Somerford, where she schooled around the XC field around combinations up to 110cm. In addition, horse and rider had showjumping lessons while there and completed the farm ride. Cookie has competed XC with ease, she has never been out of the placings and covers the ground well.

Cookie has taken part in many fun rides etc. 

She can get a bit forward in big groups when left behind, but she never bucks or rears, just the odd dance, and when sent on is perfectly fine.

Most importantly, Cookie will only be sold to a knowledgeable and competitive family home where she will have the opportunity to reach her full potential and where she can continue her education and be brought up the levels. She is not a novice ride as she really enjoys her job and is therefore enthusiastic. She hacks happily alone and in company and at least thrice weekly has our other liveries lead from her by my daughter. She is based on our busy family livery yard and absolutely thrives around a life with other horses and ponies. 

Cookie is an absolute pleasure to have, she is a much-loved member of our family, she is good to shoe, bath, clip, groom, catch, with perfect stable manners etc. Cookie loads and travels like a dream and is fully up to date with teeth, vaccinations, worming etc.

Absolutely no novices please as Cookie is forward and fun and will 100% excel in a 5*competition home- she has heaps of scope and potential to go to the top in the right hands. Her sale is purely due to my daughter having outgrown her and moving on to horses.
