Lux is a handsome 17h ISH (Hanoverian/Holsteiner breeding) gelding with bags of experience. He is an experienced Irish hunter, whipping in for the Galway Blazers before coming over to the uk and showing me (14 year old girl) the ropes. Lux loves to hunt and tackles any country, will fit any position on the field (including babysitting) and has plenty in the tank for a full days hunting.
Lux is a born and bred showjumper, with his sire of the Olympic horse, Lux Z he has a lovely shape over a jump but is agile and clever enough to cope with misses, Lux is ultra forgiving and has that fifth leg to help his rider out of a situation.
Although somewhat untapped with me, he has been complimented on his active, forward walk and loose, ground covering trot. He is lovely and soft to school and can hold an outline practically on the buckle! Lux has the scope for showjumping and the look for dressage!
Lux would be a true family horse, with enough height to take a taller riders leg gracefully for dressage or an adult on a days hunt, while also being safe and obliging enough to pop into a pony club lesson!
Lux is beautifully bred, having sired many successful foals, including an international FEI mare and multiple BE/BD horses.
Lux himself successfully evented in Ireland up to EI110 (CCI1* equivalent) gaining mid and sub 30 dressage scores and top ten results in his first season.
With such experience under his girth, he is unfazed and happily settles into new environments, we have together enjoyed summer camps such as Somerford park and Ingestre stables. Lux only gets better the busier he is and the more he’s given to do, a sensible and intelligent horse always willing to please!
He’s a kind and easy horse to have on a yard, calm and never causes trouble, a big friendly giant! Who also stands quietly for the farrier.
Lux is easy to load (my non horsey dad can load lux into our 7.5tonne lorry) and will quietly stand wherever, including out at competition, he’s even unfazed by small children and dogs!
Lux has fit around 2 sets of major school exams and recently a full time job, he is used to be picked up and put down, never fizzy or silly so easy to bring back to work and can go straight back to where you left off.
Lux hacks perfectly in company or alone, he’s experienced with all sorts of machinery and vehicles and the most he’ll do is stop for a look, I enjoy taking him for a canter round the fields on my own in a snaffle for example!
Lux is currently based on a beautiful, professional dressage yard with fab viewing facilities near Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham.
Lux is far too loved and able to be put on a back bench while current rider goes to university, he is fit, sound and healthy so ready for a summer of fun in his new home!
