8year old bright bay gelding.16.2 - 16.3
Indy is an incredibly easy horse to jump, straight forward to a fence and very rhythmical. He has exceptional breeding which shows in his scope over a fence - comfortably competing at 1.10 and remains consistent in quality of his jump up the heights to 1m 55cm with still room for more.
We bought him because of his easy attitude to jumping as I needed a horse to give me confidence show jumping (which he has done in spades). My aim was to event him but he is not loving the dressage training which is a awful shame because he is actually quite good at it! I'm now about to have child no 2 and I've decided just to focus on dressage until the children are older so I need a horse that doesn't mind doing boring flatwork and just dressage comps - I'm due in 8 weeks and think now is the time to find Indy a nice new home.
He is priced to reflect that he has a lazy larynx and makes interesting noises when working, and also he can be awkward to load if travelling on his own - if there is another horse or pony on the lorry or trailer he is fine to load. He has never not loaded and the longest it has take us is 15 minutes.
This summer he has ridden by a friends daughter and they did Pony club show jumping, rallies, and tetrathlon competitions together. They qualified and competed at the PCUK open champs (1.10/1.15) the team were placed 9th out of all the qualifying teams and championship teams.
My husband has also ridden him a handful of times over the summer and taken him unaffiliated showjumping - they came home with two double clears at their last event and were 2nd and 4th overall. He is next competing at 1m and 1m10 classes next weekend.
Everyone that jumps him says how easy he is and how he really gives you confidence. He is straightforward enough to be an amateurs horse but not a novice ride (his jump is powerful and he's still young and can occasionally spook and I would hate to over horse someone)
He is not a dressage horse - unfortunately he was unknowingly ridden with a broken dressage saddle for a period of time and I really believe he now associates flat work with pain. Our dressage arena is now not his favourite place and given his absolute love of jumping I don't think it's fair to force him to do it just because that's what I want to do. You can however school him during a jump session and he's fine with that.
I have lots of pictures and videos and you can also find more history of his trips out on our Facebook page at Whitfield farm equestrian.
More than happy for people to come and test him out but no joy jumpers please - it's not fair on him!
Open to vets, good with farriers etc and no vices. We have a 3 year old daughter and he's very gentle with her.
Happy to answer any questions you have so please call of mail me. A good home is more important than price but I would be delighted to see him go to someone who perhaps hasn't got all the money in the world but is keen on their jumping and wants a horse to take them up the grades.
