Tom (Tomsk, by Priolo, out of Kauto Relstar) is a ten year old 16.2 chestnut gelding. He is an absolute pleasure to own, and a handsome lad to look at.
Tom has had a varied life with us but not always as consistent as we would have liked. He has hacked a lot and is generally easy and fairly laid-back to hack, although we wouldn't recommend he is ridden regularly by a novice as he is smart and would probably start to test his rider.
Tom has a massive amount of innate ability on the flat, and although this is not always backed up with work ethic, he has three strong paces, particularly his canter. With the correct work he could certainly go well in this phase. He is happy to leg yield, pirouette, shoulder in and traverse, and has ability to extend and collect his paces.
He is also brilliantly talented over a fence. He shows a lot of scope; he has competed up to 80cm, consistently schooled at 90cm away from home, and jumped higher at home. He will still occasionally look at a fence, but makes up for this with scope. He has done xc training and was brilliant, but found eventing competition stressful in his earlier days with us. This would certainly be worth revisiting now his racing days are further behind him.
Tom is not an easy ride to jump, he does like to stick his head in the air, but he is improving all the time and is well worth the effort. We feel he needs more consistency than we can give him now, hence the sale.
He has never been sick or sorry bar a couple of abcesses in his first winter. He is sound and straight moving. He's good to shoe although is currently barefoot, good as gold to clip, box, catch and anything else you need to do on the ground. He has had regular visits from the chiropractor, farrier and dentist and is up to date with his vaccinations. He wants to be your best friend and is massively huggable!
Tom is the third horse in the video, sorry! He has his own playlist on our youtube channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiT9L11D6PciU3-3oxuDMUQ/pla ylists?view_as=subscriber
