    Horatio is ideal candidate for a teenager or small lady who is interested in competing at grassroots. He is a Dunn 15hh gelding who turned ten in January. He is Welsh D x quarter horse. Truly one in a million, Horatio has gone from strength to strength during his career, taking any new experience in his stride. He is patient, kind and incredibly honest. He has positive attitude towards jumping and flat work as well as 3 uphill comfortable paces. His tremendous amounts of scope and speed against the clock means he can be very competitive around the show jumps. His dressage has made significant progress, being placed first in our last two prelim tests and is now ready to tackle some novices. He has jumped up to 1.05 senior BS on a ticket, and would have been placed regularly if he was affiliated. He has competed up to BE90, going clear in every showjumping par one due to a situation out if our control. He needs a confident rider xc as he can be spooked, however with a positive attitude he's schooled over novice fences beatufully. Our first season eventing I did not have the experience to be as confident as I should if and this reflects in our results. However, since, we have put a lot of time perfecting his jumping technique and asking lots of questions out cross country and he's really improved. He has also been to pony club camp, rallies, hunter trails and many clinics. He is a saint for the farrier. Dentist, physiotherapist and acupuncturist as well as being easy to catch. He loads himself in to the lorry and travels very well. In March 2017 Horatio had his coffin joints injected with steroids, since he has been on top form. He suffers from a bit of mud fever if the weather is really bad however this us easily prevented with keeping his legs clean and hygienic.


    This sale is absolutely devastating as I have had him since he was 4 so only 5* homes only. If this horse was a hand taller he would be with us for life, unfortunately this is not the case so I would love to find him a home where he can spend the rest of his days. I am aware that this can not always be the case so I would need first refusal if he were to be sold on. 5* Vetting is available on request.

    Horatio is currently stabled at Homelands equestrian with excellent trailing facilities. His stable is very much secure is potential buyers would be interested keeping him there.
