    Larkmeadow Bee-Jay otherwise known as Opi, is a striking 4 year old Appaloosa Gelding, standing at 15.1hh at present but extremely bum high. He was broken In February 2018, as he turned 4 years old in May, and has been out to school hires and pole work clinics. Has three good paces, works in an outline and is just starting to learn some lateral work in walk. He is baby still, but well balanced for his age and education and tries his best to please. He is a happy medium - not too forward going but no means a plod either. Jumping is Opi’s love. He has only been over coloured and rustic fences around 10 times in total and he takes everything in his stride. Has an uncanny way of managing to jump out of sticky situations due to him being babish, and has a really lovely technique with good knees and back end. I have just started to indroduce two/three strided doubles and spreads and he has taken it all in his stride. He has seen brightly coloured fillers and hasn’t looked once. He can take 10 mins to properly warm up over fences but this is just down to education, once he gets the hang of it there is no stopping him and he has a lovely time. Isn’t strong at all into a fence, is polite and keeps a good rhythm. Hacking wise, Opi is great - he has seen traffic and farm machinery. He hasn’t been hacked alone yet only due to his age. He loves going to the woods and is brilliant in open spaces.

    On the ground Opi is a big dog, lovely nature and a real favourite. He loves people and this really comes through when you meet him. Good to shoe, bath ect. Opi has just had his first clip three weeks ago and he loved it - no fuss just tied up and off it came.
    Opi has no vices, he doesn’t buck,nap or rear. You can leave him for a week and jump straight on and pick up where you left off. He can have stallion like tendencies when around Mares only in the field, but can be turned out with Geldings and is fine.
    Opi passed a 5 stage vetting on 4th July 2018.
    Opi is only for sale to due fact that I don’t feel me and him suit one another, and I have two mares at home which he would have to be turned out with and this has proved too much for him. He is currently at a DIY yard and has settled down and is happy with the mixed sex yard. He thrives to be in a busy environment, which I can’t offer him at home.
    Opi would suit an all rounder home, and in time a cracking showjumper, someone that wants a lovely sensible horse but wants to put their own stamp on. I would prefer him to go to a knowledgeable home, I think he would suit 16 years plus as he has proven so easy and sensible. As he is a pure Appaloosa he could do very well in showing classes. A horse for the future.
    Serious enquiries only please as it’s a hard decision and isn’t being taken lightly and will be sold with his bridle.
    Please call Sammy - Phone number removed - or enquiries. I will accept offers.
