What a finished hunter presents as, well before the zeroes get added. With an excellent sense of boundaries + valuable early show exposure, Athena ticks all the boxes for your long-term amateur show goals. She has been professionally handled since Day 1 and, with arrangements, can remain in the meticulous Young Horse Program at Hickory Manor for continued development after purchase. She benefits from easy access to the KY Horse Park & placed 3rd in the Yearling class at their 2019 Young Horse Show. Both she & sibling Beloved HM qualified for the Finals in Tryon, with 2 y.o. Beloved HM attending & scoring well in both the liberty & jump-chute phases. She earned an impressive 8.36 score for her jumping performance, which included 4 technique scores ranging from 8.5-8.8.

A full sister to Beloved HM, Brava HM aka “Athena” was designed for the hunter ring but always with the amateur owner & handler in mind. She loads beautifully & stands politely for the farrier. She bathes, clips, and has stalled quietly at multi-day/night outings. She has taken every new experience in stride, remained consistent both on & off property, and been willing for all handling. She is expected to mature to 16.1+ hands and boasts both good bone & a soft, feminine appeal. She rated First Premium & received her Hunter Label at inspection, and earned 8s for her canter at the Young Horse Show. With an A++ temperament, educated handling, and purpose-bred talent, she offers everything you seek in a performance hunter prospect. She’s a lovely candidate for 2020 & 2021 in-hand classes & perfect for anyone making smart plans for the future.
