Liberty Star "Libby" is the perfect all around adult amateur mount and a lovely ladies foxhunter. Libby is a true 'packer-type' horse that is extremely forgiving of the riders mistakes, and excels in all disciplines.
Libby has experience in Foxhunting, Showjumping, and Eventing.
Libby has extensive foxhunting experience and has 3 solid seasons of foxhunting under her belt. Libby has been my primary guest/ lease horse for the past few years, and happily carried novice and veteran foxhunters alike across the fields, over fences, and through tricky terrain. She is comfortable hunting in any flight and has even led the various fields. Libby has hunted 1st flight, 2nd flight, led both 1st and 2nd flight, and whipped-in. Libby has hunted with the Rolling Rock Hunt (PA), Sewickley Hunt (PA), Old Dominion Hunt (VA), Loudoun Hunt (VA), Snickersville Hunt (VA), Blue Ridge Hunt (VA), and Farmington Hunt (VA). She is an easy, uncomplicated ride, and respectful of other horses and hounds in the hunt field.
Libby successfully competed in the 2019 North American Junior Foxhunter Championships- 1st Flight Division in Middleburg, VA.
Libby also has numerous successful hunter pace competitions under her belt with a variety of different riders... (Again, she is easy and uncomplicated and I have always put guest and kids and first-timers up on her...)
Libby has proven to be competitive in Eventing; always having top place finishes at the Beginner Novice level packing around different riders through their 'first event'!! Libby easily schools Novice level fences, and will happily take on Training level fences when her rider is ready!!
Libby has extreme presence in the show ring; she carries herself with confidence around the course and is a rhymical careful jumper. It is common that Libby gets special compliments from the judges about her way of going. Libby has competed in both the hunter and jumper ring and always wins ribbons in either ring. She has great rideability, no spook, and can course a hunter or jumper round with ease.
This past season Libby won Reserve Champion in the 2'9"-3'0" Hopeful Hunters at Rolling Rock Hunter Show. In addition She had top placings in the 2'9" Hunter Classic over an outside course, and a 2nd place finish in the Hunter Pairs division.
Libby (Liberty Star) is an 8 yr old, 15.3h, Tb x Perch mare. Libby was a home bred filly, and as such, has been loved and handled since birth. She is easy to work around, gets turned out in a herd, trailers, clips, ties, good for the farrier/vet, etc.
Libby is perfectly suited for a lady foxhunter wanting to dabble in Eventing and some H/J shows and hunter paces, and/or an AA or pony clubber that wants to try all the different disciplines without buying a different horse!!!
