SIRE: Nero Astaire (USA) (TB)
Dam: Ruling Lady (ISH)
Dam sire: Doranstowns Hallo (ISH)
Sires Sire: Fred Astaire
Sires grandsire: Nijinsky
Owned for 3yrs 5mths. Love him to pieces but need to sell unfortunately
General: Can be spooky/hot but can also be a donkey! NOT for a Novice! Needs confident rider.
Has been out of work since September 2019 due to my health reasons & I’ve lost my confidence with him - too much horse for me.
Having the odd loose school or lunge session to stretch legs if stuck in
Up to date with farrier - has been barefoot for 18mths/2yrs & copes fine & I feel he moved better, Due on 18th Feb, jabs (due April), teeth done on 16th Jan (6mthly so due July)
Jumping: I’ve never jumped him. He used to jump about 4yrs ago & apparently was a demon XC, proving bold & brave. Going through water & over ditches, trakeners, logs & down big drops etc. Need to jump in a Pelham though as gets strong otherwise ridden in a snaffle.
Jumped him on lunge & loose schooling. Not a world beater but enjoys it. Have done ridden pole work with him myself
Dressage: I compete online & we have had several 70%+ scores & gained Intro Restricted Reserve champion 2018 with 1 company & various other achievements with other companies
Have done a couple of Prelims. Would easily move up the levels & go Novice/Elementary with more experienced rider.
Hacking: I Hardly ever hack as roads too busy & not allowed out on my own (promise to husband!) so he has only been out once in the 1st 3mths I had him as don’t have anyone to hack with. He was VERY good with traffic on busy main road & round open field but did spin & run when a donkey ran at gate & brayed!!
Hunting: was told he had hunted a couple of times & saw 1 picture of him on roads with hunt, other than that I don’t know.
Other: DOES NOT CLIP! Needs sedating!
Travels ok in trailer or lorry but scrapes foot lots. Loads perfectly.
Needs nose net in spring/summer & better turned out over night & in during day or access to a shelter. Loves his stable & shelter
Does cough a couple of times when 1st exercised (always has) & needs hay wetting all the time
He would love another gelding for company...Read full description
