Je Suis Marvelous also known as Elijah to his friends, is a well built 16.1h, 7yo, Warmblood, Gelding.
Elijah has talent running through his veins… he is sired by the mighty Glasgow van ’t Merelsnest with his dam being sired by Caretino giving him names such as Nabab de Rêve, Darco, Cor De La Bryere and Capitol I amongst his pedigree.
Elijah was born and bred in the US before being imported to the UK in 2020. Over in the US he jumped up to 1.30 level before being the best amateur horse, giving his rider confidence to attempt her first USEF shows. Together they attended venues such as World Equestrian Center with Elijah taking everything into his stride. After coming to the UK together for University, a very difficult decision was made for his owner to head back to the US meaning the parting of company with Elijah.
Since being with us, Elijah was competed Unaffiliated Show Jumping where he proved his worth, winning multiple shows in a row and qualifying for Trailblazer Championships at the first attempt. He has now been registered BS where he has attended stay away shows and grows in confidence with every trip in the ring. He has gained a few British Novice D/C’s, qualified for Amateur Championship Second Rounds, qualified 105 final at Welsh Masters as well as jumping an awesome round in an Accumulator to just rub off the joker fence. He is naturally quick across the ground and isn't afraid to take a turn, our desire to keep pushing for placings has meant that the odd pole has fell but this is no reflection on Elijah and what he is capable of, going forward. Jumping aside, he will work beautifully in all three paces and has even attended dressage scoring 63% in a prelim test. He is bold and brave and has shown this when attending XC schooling and jumping everything asked including trickier combinations, at his first time over solid fences. He will turn his head to anything.
Elijah is great to do in all ways… Easy to catch, shoe, load, travel and deal with on a daily basis. Has even been handled by my elderly grandparents and is always an absolute gentleman. This behaviour continues even at shows in busier atmospheres. We feel Elijah would be suited to an all-round riding club home or an amateur looking for a horse to take out and have a real shot at winning, being able to jump off any stride and being so much fun. But with further production Elijah could even be produced for eventing as he is so versatile across all the disciplines.
This is an extremely difficult and sad sale, therefore is based on sales livery in Worcester, West Mids. No joy riders or time wasters. 10* homes only, where his owner would like to stay in touch, with a first refusal buy back option. Serious enquires only, he's not one to miss out on, a real diamond in the rough. Videos available on request....Read full description
