Talented, well bred Sport Horse gelding by Catherston Gold Storm (by Dutch Gold/ Dutch Courage) out of Final Verdict (Voltaire lines). Harry has successfully competed in a variety of disciplines. He has 3 naturally rhythmical, balanced and powerful, elegant paces and would excel at British Dressage. He is bold and brave show jumping and XC, not being phased by water, ditches, steps, coloured or rustic fillers.
We have competed at the British Riding Clubs area Dressage qualifier with East Cheshire Combined Training Group at Somerford Park, where Harry won the Prelim section and qualified for the National BRC Finals (sadly cancelled due to Coronavirus). He's always in the top placings in pure dressage, qualifying for Trailblazers second rounds and has also competed British Dressage on a ticket, being placed both times. Harry has competed unaffiliated Combined Training, Arena Eventing and SJ, jumping careful double clears at 80cm/ 90cm. He is jumping 1m at home and is well capable of moving up the levels, but has been brought on slowly and not over faced as not competed with previous owners.
Harry has XC schooled at Kelsall Hill and Somerford Park, jumping anything asked of him. He is never strong and can be ridden in a snaffle for all phases. Doesn't always stand still in very busy situations but settles and focuses when working. Harry has always been well behaved in busy collecting rings with others jumping around him. He has also been on the Somerford Farm Ride.
Lovely horse to ride who will go far with the right rider and more miles on the clock. Not suitable for a novice or nervous rider as he is an athletic sports horse, who is generally very well behaved and laid back, but can have a spook and the odd quirky moment!
Harry is good to load, bath, shoe and trim but would need to be sedated for a full clip, as genuinely frightened of the clipper noise. Up to date with back, teeth, vaccinations and saddle.
Genuine reason for sale – will only go to suitable, good home. No time wasters. More photos and videos available.
