Only for sale to a 5* loving home. 16hh TB 8 year old bay gelding. I have owned this lovely boy for over 4 years and in that time we have attended riding club activities and competed successfully in many disciplines. He has won and been placed numerous times in unaffiliated dressage up to Novice level scoring up to 72%. He is forward going ride with lovely adjustable paces, good transitions and lateral work. He is a very keen showjumper and is good at shortening and lengthening a stride to help you out. We have jumped round courses of up to 1m10 and have popped over 1m20 at home.He has competed in Hunter Trials and Derby’s, however our main discipline over the last few years has been British Eventing, which he loves. He has been placed a few times at BE90 level qualifying for two regional finals. He loves XC, easily makes the time and has no problems with ditches, banks, water, skinny’s and corners. He has the scope to move up to BE100 level. He would need a calm, quiet rider to bring out the best in him.
Due to having young children, at the moment I don’t have the time to compete and tend to spend a lot of time hacking him out alone. He really enjoys this and is 100% safe with tractors, farm machinery, bikes etc. He is a very straightforward easy horse.
He is a gentleman to deal with, good to handle, bath, catch, shoe, box, travel, clip, with dentist/vet etc. He is up to date with vaccinations, dentist and physio. He is a good doer, and has wintered out since I have owned him. He has no vices.
Unfortunately this lovely boy is just not getting the attention he deserves, he has such a sweet loving temperament. This is a heart breaking sale, so please no timewasters or novices. Good home essential.
