Bred for endurance in Abruzzo, Italy. Most of his riding career since he was 3 years old has been endurance and long distance riding. This is the discipline most suitable for him as he is a high energy, highly strung horse who finds flatwork in the menage stressful. Under saddle he is tricky to ride if not in steady work. He requires an experienced, confident, flexible rider, who is familiar with the breed. The price reflects the fact that he is not an all rounder, bomb proof horse. His manners on the ground are lovely; he is very loyal, loving, and very personable. Easy to load, perfect for farrier and vet.
He has been with me since a foal; I broke him at 3. He showed great potential as a jumper as a 4/5 yr old, but it interfered with his endurance training so we stopped. I shipped him to England with me in 2017. We competed in prelim dressage for two years, but it was clear that he had no love for the discipline. We returned to Endurance 2019, where he competed at the Novice level, placing in every race.
Because of back problems, I am no longer able to keep him in work at the fitness level that he requires to keep his focus and keep him happy, so I am very sadly looking for someone to continue his journey as an endurance horse, or perhaps to retrain him as a cross country horse.
I am seeking only a 5* forever home. I have many photos and videos of him at his best and his worse and will be happy to share them. I will be totally transparent about his history as I only want the right home for him. Thank you for reading. I am contactable by phone after 6:30 PM @ - Click here to reveal phone number -
