Adelta is a 16.3h reliable, fun and safe jumper. She is appropriate for a quiet-handed Amateur intermediate rider or a confident advanced-beginner working under a trainer. She is ready to show immediately, hauls well, and settles into new environments easily, and is well behaved on trails. She has been shown and jumped at schooling shows, has reliable flying changes, has clinic experience, has been part of the UC Davis Hunter/Jumper team. Her current rider prefers to jump 2’ to 2’6”, but she easily jumps 3’ in jumping-chute gymnastics with bascule.
Since COVID-19 restrictions required relocating from UC Davis Equestrian Center, and the LMU fire (which stopped one mile from our home), resulted in persistent unhealthy air quality, she is on a limited work schedule at home on our breeding ranch in Winters. Currently she is doing walking hill work, gymnastic chute jumping, and walking elementary dressage movements.
She is brave, personable, athletic, smart, with no “maintenance issues” other than needing regular normal shoeing. She is more focused on rye, oat, or grass hay (as opposed to alfalfa).
She is being sold because her rider/trainer has graduated from college and will be moving and leaving riding to start her “real” career.
