Colour BayGelding16 handsSwedish Warmblood x Thoroughbred
Junior is a 12-year-old 16hh Swedish WB x TB gelding that has previously competed up to BE100 level (registered name HIGHWAY), with a faultless XC jumping record. He has three excellent paces and lateral work with strong breeding so could excel in dressage or be equally happy as a lower level all-rounder.
He is not a novice ride as he can be grumpy and stubborn at times both ridden and, on the ground, therefore he requires a confident, knowledgeable and sympathetic rider. However, he is never nasty and can be sweet and affectionate once a bond has been built; he is good to shoe, clip, etc. He hacks both alone and in company but can be spooky at times, so can need reassurance from the rider.
He was bought as a dressage horse, having only had one previous owner, however, due to education commitments and commitments of his previous owner he has not been in consistent work for a while; because of this he is also relatively inexperienced for a horse of his age. He would suit someone who could give him regular work and a routine, allowing him to excel in the chosen field.
