    I know this mare very well. I have her son, Prince Hopeful, who is by Prince Optimus. For Hope was bred by Lucile and is an Elite mare. Prince Hopeful is her only offspring that survived. She aborted two other foals that I know of and then had trouble getting pregnant after that. That might not have been her fault, very possibly was due to the management. She was "given" to a worker at the barn many years ago, who is now trying to sell her. She is a VERY sweet mare with a lovely disposition and good basic movement, but she has been lame for a very long time. The lamenesses were never treated, so who knows if you could make her more comfortable, even now. If she could have healthy foals, I would highly recommend her as a broodmare. She has not been well ridden in many years, but she was lovely to ride - very forward and sensitive but never naughty. This mare deserves to have a happy home, and I hope there is someone out there who will rescue her!

    That is such a sad story, Eliza. I hope this mare lands softly.

    OMG! She used to work for me. Very nice girl with good intentions but not at all experienced with warmblood breeding, english riding, etc. She assisted at a therapeutic riding program and did some trail riding. It would be great if someone can go get her.

    Ariana doesn't own the mare. She's helping the owner sell her, from what I've been told.

    Not necessarily branded. My Elite Mare is not branded because she was hurt as a weanling and yearling. The AHS only carries "foal" brands with them to the inspections. After that age, you can't get them branded at an inspection.

    My client's elite mare isn't branded either.

    Anyone hear anything about the mare? I sent a message directing them towards the fb warmblood broodmare pages but never heard back... Hope that means she found a fantastic home!
