Mouse is a 2007 16h New Zealand Sporthorse who got a bit of a culture shock when she left New Zealand’s beautiful summer to arrive in the middle of Virginia’s harsh winter in 2011.
Lynn came across Mouse while visiting friends in New Zealand. She wasn’t planning on coming back with a souvenir, but Mouse’s extraordinary movement, powerful jump, and good brain were too tempting to turn down. She is beautifully bred, with the legendary Aberlou bloodlines through her Grand Prix dam Grey Flight. She is by the Holsteiner sire, Littorio.
After many top placings at Novice and Training she began Preliminary in summer of 2012 with great success and finished her season with a second place finish at the Virginia CCI*. Mouse moved up to Intermediate in the summer of 2013 and went on to compete at the two-star level before a life threatening injury cut her eventing career short. Luckily Mouse's fantastic, laid back temperament and strong willingness to learn make her a barn favorite. She’s very social, and happily drops her head over your shoulder for a little rub on the forehead whenever possible. Mouse loves food of all types and would like to join a competitive eating circuit
