Super smart 16hh Bay gelding with two white socks and a white blaze. John Whitaker’s Randi bloodlines. Registered BS with over £400 winnings up to 1.05m and more recently BD winning points in a short amount of time up to Elementary.
Horse was bred by friends and bought by me as a 3YO. He was home broken and slowly bought on before being sent off to be professionally schooled. We mainly concentrated on showjumping until he turned 9 – although we were still jumping clear his enthusiasm felt like it was starting to decline so we decided to take a year out and concentrate on dressage which is where he really shone! In the first 6 months he was unbeaten up to elementary unaffiliated and joined BD shortly after. He has wins BD but we lost momentum due to myself planning a wedding and moving house.
In the last 9 months we have been ‘ticking over’, we have entered a couple of BD and schooled back over a course (with full enthusiasm back!), however since moving we haven’t had access to an arena meaning that aside from hiring something local we can only hack which is proving hard with a full time job and winter nights.
Now the honest bit…… he is super sharp and at home is spooky (although this doesn’t happen at a competition!). In the past he has been known to nap to the gate when he finds the aids confusing and if you argue with him or lose your temper he has tried to rear. You can get through anything with a light hand and a calm attitude but he is definitely not a beginner’s horse. He likes routine and likes to have his brain challenged – trotting 20m circles for half an hour is not going to work but he does do all the lateral work and has recently learnt Half Pass.
He is great to handle on the floor, fine to clip, shoe, load and travels like a dream. He is up to date with jabs, back and teeth.
Unfortunately my circumstances mean I am no longer the right owner for this horse.
Sold to right home only.
