For sale in Bristol - "Ollie" is a 7 yr old 17:1hh, ISH Gelding. Ollie is a truly talented horse and an absolute delight to have on our training programme. He has hunted 2 seasons with Foxhounds in Ireland.
Despite his stature he is a gentle giant and is ridden by adult riders and has looked after a tiny 7yr old jockey in the arena. Please see his videos below:
Ollie is coming on nicely with his flat work and naturally works in a very uphill manner with a super hind leg. He shows lovely elevation and rhythm in his paces and is easy to collect and lengthen and stretch when warming up and cooling down.
He is coming on well with his lateral work and moves nicely off the leg when asked.
Ollie's real talent is in the XC field, he really is a horse that stands out as he will tackle everything with confidence, but is careful and bold and never strong.
He is snaffle-mouthed in all of his work.
He is showing great scope with his showjumping, and is once again, very honest and bold. He is developing a super technique and is very manoeuvrable around a course.
I cannot stress how delightful this boy is to have on our training programme, as he is such a quiet, gentle boy to handle in every aspect and is never rude or bolshy.
He is super to hack out, whether in a group or on his own, and he is not worried by any of the traffic we see.....and we see a LOT! He regularly encounters quarry lorries, buses, cyclists, fast cars, Alpacas, Donkeys and even trains!
He is turned out in a mixed herd and is good to catch, load, wash, worm and with the farrier and dentist.
