15.2hh 7yo gorgeous black medium built blanket spot appaloosa X . Even markings both sides, clean legs , good feet and a truly striking horse . Max oozes presence, character and has the overall WOW factor . Max is a fun cheeky chap to be around ... he is good in all ways on the ground (picking feet out , lunging , clipping, dentist, catching etc) .
Max's flatwork has come on leaps and bounds . He is a real flashy mover, big shoulder , tracks up well and a true show off . He holds himself into consitent contact and is starting his lateral work. Max can leg yield , shoulder in and just starting to learn his changes. Max is a forward ,responsive, balanced ,uphill
ride ... he always has lovely downwards transitions and is snaffle mouthed.
Max is a real trier when it comes to jumping. He isn't phased by fillers , bright poles etc. Max has competitively jumped 70cm, jumped up to a 1m at home with a rider and loose jumped 1.05. Max lacks technique when jumping , he will always try his best but as he is green jumping sometimes leaves a leg behind , but he is very genuine and honest. I'm very sure in time , he will Improve his bascule over larger fences .
Hacking , he is amazing . Not phased by much at all! Seen heavy farm vehicles , bikes , dogs etc. Not a spooky type , but like any horse can jump on the rare occasion but it's only a shy to the side and then continues on his merry way. He remains the same in the school as he is out hacking - nice, responsive and steady going. He has the most beautiful canter out... good in a group or alone.
Max is a super chilled laid back character and a yard favourite . It will break my heart to see him go , however he needs to enjoy himself , have more time than what I can give him and mainly make someone else happy, like he has made me !. He has been ridden by beginners and young riders proving to look after them well. Open to vet .
