    Talented Dressage Prospect

    Colour BayGelding17.1 handsKWPN

    Ideal for an ambitious rider on a smaller budget.


    17.1hh 9yo KWPN Gelding by Applaus (Voltaire/Furrioso lines).

    Currently based on a showjumping yard and has been for nearly 4 years and as much ability as he has but his heart just isn't in it and hes doesn't enjoy the jumping so will therefore only be sold to a 5* dressage home.

    NOT a novice ride - would suit a competent and confident dressage rider looking for a very talented horse on a smaller budget.

    Big, powerful gelding with good range and impressive movement in all paces,
    Natural ability for both shortening and lengthening with all the basic in place, just needs more finesse and relaxation for the higher marks.
    Good with the basic lateral work and the starting to work towards his changes.
    Has done a handful of dressage tests (1 prelim, 1 novice and 2 elementary with rider who is clueless about dressage) some very promising judge comments - 'Quality big moving horse just needs more relaxation for the higher marks'
    Ready to crack on with his new career and should quickly and easily move through the levels.
    Schools in both a snaffle or a double.
    Ridden by a petite lady rider.
    Kind personality and easy to do in the stable etc.
    Good to box, shoe, clip.
    Stands at the mountain block to mount and dismount.
    Up to date with all teeth, vacs, worming.

    He does make a noise in his wind but we have never had any issues as a result of it.
    He isn't great in traffic (particularly high sided vehicles) but this being said we hack him out in company at least 4 times a week and have done so for the past 4 years.

    He is NOT a novice ride - he can be spooky and sharp and will have a buck/leap, he is also nervous of oncoming horses in a busy collecting ring but this is improving all the time and I have manged to warm him up in manic showjumping collecting rings! He is not nasty in anyway he is just being excitable or nervous.

    This is reflected in his price, he is still a quality horse and If he didn't have these few issues he would easily be a 20k + horse.

    Strictly no loans, Sale to a 5* competent home only....Read full description
