Blue Ridge is a fictional town located deep in the heart of Kentucky. It is home to one of the most well known equestrian academies in the United States. Students and staff from all over the world join the academy for what it has to offer. Do you have what it takes to join us and learn from the Academy?
It's lovely to hear from you! I'm glad that you, Fin, and Remi are all doing well! What about that greyhound I talked to you on the phone about? Is she doing well too? How did the adjustment go for her? We are all doing very well here at Magnolia Acres. We've been very successful showing, and a lot of our junior riders have been improving as well, though they miss you terribly. Your plan for a prospect sounds very good! I've watched you shape young horses before and they've always turned out to be nice horses. I'm sure that a horse that you've trained yourself will be quite impressive! I've been wanting to see how Remi has been turning out, because I'm sure he's fantastic! It's true that I have a bunch of imports, most of which are young prospects. I went out and picked a bunch out recently, so I've only had many of them for a month. I'm entirely willing to sell one to you, as most are going to be sold anyways once they're trained. As far as price goes, think about what Remi was for most of them. I have a few in mind for you that I've described and enclosed pictures of below. I have others besides these, but these guys are are the ones that fit what you like the most. I know your taste in horses Cora, so I hope you'll like these. Take a look and get back to me about them. When do your classes start again? Maybe you can take a trip back here to try some of them and visit before classes start, if you have time. We'd all love to see you, and at least this way you'd have a good purpose for the visit. I know William would like to see you.
Name: September Snow; Sam Sex: Gelding Age: 8 years Breed: Canadian Warmblood, registered Height: 15 hh Sam is one of our older prospects who for whatever reason hasn't been trained in any disciplines yet, though I do see him as a hunter. He's on the more compact side and has good conformation, though his style jumping is rather interesting. Sam is very relaxed and it's known that he needs a heavier leg on him to get him moving, though it's not terribly difficult. He's safe and honest, and would be a good hunter for one of your more inexperienced students once trained. He would also be on the easier side in training, and I don't think it would take you very long to get him polished. Though it sounds silly, I think he'd be an easy sale to a new rider, considering his looks and caring nature.
Name: Sonnenblume; Sophie Sex: Mare Age: 5 years Breed: German Warmblood, registered Height; 16 hh Sophie is one of our newest horses here and we've grown fond of her rather quickly. She's very clever and escaped from her stall on the first day we had her, though she only stuck her head out to look around and eat some of the hay that had fallen in the aisle. She's playful and still acts like a foal in the pasture, trying to get the other horses to play with her. You can see that she has the conformation of a hunter, and we've tried free-jumping her. Her style over jumps is very nice, and we were able to free-jump her rather high. Unfortunately, we haven't done much riding with her. She's able to be ridden, but is still rather confused about jumping under saddle. Sophie has a lot of potential, but she also needs a lot of work to reach her best.
Name: Feu de L'Olympe; Hades Sex: Gelding Age: 4 years Breed: Selle Français Height: 16.1 hh Hades is full of vigor. He's very athletic and probably has the biggest scope out of all of our prospects. He has a big jump and a big stride, though I expect that it would be difficult to get him in frame. If you manage to get him to be on the bit though, he'll be fantastic in the hunter ring, though I'm considering him as a jumper as well. Hades is mean though, and you have to keep him away from other horses, and be careful yourself. He's a lot to take on, but I know that when trained properly, he will be a force to be reckoned with. Even when trained, I would only consider selling him to a very experienced rider if I were you.
