BASED IN THE COTSWOLDS, UK
Fabio also known as Fab is a 17hh 10yr Old Irish Sport Horse by the very well renowned French Buffet. Super talented horse with a brain to die for. Really is the most personable horse you could have in the yard.
Excellent manners to do anything with. Loves being fussed in the stable. Stands at a mounting block. Excellent to shoe, box, clip etc. You name it you can do it with Fab. He is as close to human as you can get in a horse.
Fab has competed at Open level Riding Club here in Ireland. He arrived in the UK at the tail end of the summer and went into a professional Event yard. These guys really rated him. Within a few weeks he went out and was placed 4th in his first BE90cm. Weather deteriorated which finished his season early. He went straight out this year into a BE100 and was placed 10th. He has then gone and done 7 Novices with good results throughout the season. Very rideable with good consistent scores. Ready now to move up to Intermediate. Will be doing the Novice in Gatcombe which is renowned for being on par with an Intermediate class.
Excellent horse for a junior or amateur rider to go up through the classes on him. Schoolmaster at this stage at Novice level, he will look after anyone out on the track. Nice progressive horse even if he is starting a little older then the rest of the field. Excellent prospect for someone who doesn't have the budget for a horse already competing at 2*. Has certainly got potential for 3* also. This guy never faults cross country.
Very nice flatwork, lovely uphill horse with plenty of engine coming from behind. Uses himself very nicely. Nice long paces. For a big horse he is nice and compact and certainly doesn't feel like your riding a giant. Has been produced nicely since a 4yr old and this really stands for him. Nice and responsive off your leg without being hot and sensitive. Lovely soft mouth.
Showjumping wise he was competing at 1.10m unaffiliated in Ireland before going to England at the end of last season. From 4-8yrs Old he was used as a superlative Riding-Club horse in Ireland, numerous double clears under his belt, very careful over a fence. He has scope for 1.20/1.30s and is very consistent. Very rideable around a track of fences.
Cross-country Fab is very brave and scopey. Has hunted in Ireland and has hunted over big hedge country with the Warwickshires in England. Very brave and clever as you would expect of a horse produced in Ireland. Has also competed in some Team chases over last winter, he really is as brave as a lion along with being very rideable.
Very very mannerly out hunting and an ideal horse if you want to look the business and do the business. Handsome is as handsome does comes to mind only Fab ticks both boxes. Lovely gentlemens/Lady hunter who stands at the meet and then gets on with the job when needed. Very mannerly, will go away from the pack if needed and will go first or last.
Really nice horse that can be placed in any discipline. Only for sale as the owner has too many horses to manage by herself. 100% no fault of his he is much loved where he is.
Transport can be easily arranged worldwide. He is available to view in the Cotswolds, Uk.
Open to full vetting and xrays.
This horse is priced accordingly for a horse with such talent and ride-ability.
