(Bassingfield Cassandra)

Size: 148cm (14.2hh)

Cassie was born at Bassingfield 19 years ago and has been with us her entire life. She has had two foals, Hemera and Zeus. She has been very lightly competed in Show Hunter Pony and has won nearly every time out. She was bred, broken, trained and competed by Helen and Jennifer Church (our proprietor's daughter and grandaughter). She has had numerous wins at County and National level in SHP as well as in hand showing with her foal at foot. She qualified Horse of the Year Show at her one and only attempt.

Cassie is used in the riding school for more advanced riders and can teach you up to advanced medium level dressage (this includes shoulder in, half pass, travers, walk to canter, turn on the forehand, turn on the haunches, flying changes). She also has a very athletic jump and enjoys hacking. Cassie is very reactive to the aids and is forward going at the same time as being one of the most well mannered ponies we have ever known. Nobody has ever fallen off Cassie her entire life, which is testament to her fantastic temperament.
