More InformationStunning and talented 16 hands 3ins, 11 yr old, Dark Brown, KWPN, Gelding. I have owned this special boy since he was 4 rising 5 yr old, have produced him carefully and correctly with a bright future in mind.
He is super talented. Straight, correct balanced paces with a exceptionally powerful jump. He is careful yet brave- nothing phases him from ditches, water, steps, banks, owl holes. He thrives on his work and pleasing his rider- a true competition horse. Jumped clear newcomers, gained over 80% BD and had wins up to 100 level BE. With scope for so much more. I bought him and was producing him to be atleast my 2* horse. He is an utter gentleman in every way to handle- shoe, box, clip, teeth, bath. Handled by all members of the family- from toddler to grandad.Lives in and out. I took him with me to work on both dressage and jumping yards, done 4 day shows at Bicton and he settles wherever he is and loves having a job to do. He can be left in the lorry alone without fuss. He hacks alone and in company and is good in all traffic.
I need to find him a home where the rider is knowledgeable and gutsy. He is cold backed and can be sensitive. He never rears or naps.. but has one hell of a buck if his rider does not have the skills Of how to deal with a horse like this. I love the horse so he has been xrayed to ensure no pain/kissing spines- which he doesn’t. This is just his quirk, but as he is powerful he is under no circumstances a novice ride. I cannot stress this enough. Under no circumstances will I sell him to anybody I don’t feel is knowledgable enough. Home is so much more important than price.
Due to my circumstances (young family and work commitments) I have finally made the hardest decision to offer him to somebody that can fulfill all his potential. He is being sold from the field. Anybody with knowledge of cold backed, competition horses will know that the next 4-6 weeks is vital. He does not remain sensitive when in full work, but requires time to bring him back that I simply don’t have. It breaks my heart to offer him for sale- I know I will never own anything as talented as him again, and he is such a loved member of our family. I now realise that my life is not going to change enough for me to accommodate him, and me loving him, not wanting to let him go is now just being unfair on him. If I could take 6 weeks life out of my normal life and work him everyday I would never, ever part with him.
I know I am looking for a home that are few and far between. I was 19/20 when I bought him, zero responsibilities and lived and breathed for my horses.. so if I can get such enjoyment and success from him then somebody out there is also capable.
NO TIMEWASTERS!!! This is heart breaking, I feel like I am giving up my dream so this horse has a chance to be everything I believe he can.
