Smart, kind natured big moving Warmblood in search of loving home.
He is 18 years old but low mileage.
He has had only 2 homes other than his breeder including his present home and his life history from birth is known.
He has been in his current home Almost 6 years and I have reel upon reel of videos and photos of him. Sad sale as he needs to be someone's sole horse and I have 3.
He had a break from work due to my commitments with other horses and is slowly being brought back into work at present.
When fully fit he has been out competing regularly, placing first in his last Novice outing, schooling elementary level at home. Has basic lateral work and tries his best to please.
He jumps 90cm tracks with confidence, and very much enjoys his jumping over and above anything else.
Bold and confident into a fence but not giddy and fast. Makes light work of riding SJ or XC, Jumping being his favorite and he will take a less confident rider nicely round a track. He never stops or rattles a pole.
He hacks out alone and in company but can be spooky so for this reason he is not offered as a novice ride. He is forward thinking and used to machines and livestock but takes confidence from his rider when out so needs a gentle hand. When hacking with others he is confident and never silly in open spaces. He enjoys a fast blast but will stop politely when asked. He also rides and leads nicely and has taken many a skittish youngster out on the lead.
Despite being gentle as a lamb and quite straight forward in all ways he’s a big sensitive horse and needs confidence and quiet hands.
He has only ever been ridden kindly and I can’t vouch for his behavior should anyone be rough or heavy handed with him. He
loads and travels nicely, and is always sensible and easy at competitions. I take him out alone regularly and he’s never come home without a frilly. Real head turner in the looks department and always get’s compliments in the warm up ring and from the judges.
He has been to adult pony camps, beach rides, unaff 1 day events, SJ clinics, dressage and has placed in champs @ prelim level early in his training (current owner prefers dressage)
He also know’s liberty work, trick training and tackless riding.
The sole reason we haven't progressed with his dressage schooling is because it bores him and he doesn't have the enthusiasm needed to school nicely up the levels. As he is an older gentleman being brought back into work his price reflects this. His full vet history is available and he has no history of injury or lameness, he also has no idea of his age. He needs frequent work to keep a lid on his energy and he thrives on a regular routine. Price will increase as he fittens up.
Despite being a gentleman of advancing years he’s sound and a grand doer. Lives on fresh air and get’s fat on anything stronger. Open to full vetting which he would most certainly pass.
Physio, Farrier, Teeth, and recent worm count. He currently is a very much loved member of the family living at home with me. I am in absolutely no hurry to sell him so ONLY 5 star true forever homes considered for this super affectionate sweet boy and owner would like to stay in touch. He would suit someone who wants to have some no pressure fun at the level he is currently at, not someone who's aspiring for bigger tracks as despite being low mileage he is also not a young project.He's never been pushed or overfaced and I would like it to stay that way. He is super cuddly and a yard favorite with everyone here as he absolutely loves people. He comes to call and will physically pull you into his stable for a cuddle if he can. He deserves to be someone's whole world!
