Super Dressage Horse! With the temperament And Ability To Go On!
This lovely horse has it all! The proven record, the paces, the looks and the most wonderful trainable temperament. Archie as he’s known at home is a 16.3hh 9yr old gelding by Broadstone Landmark who in his lifetime has turned his hoof to all disciplines but over the last few years owner has focused on and had lots and lots of success in the dressage arena.
This super boy has three superb paces and really has the ‘wow’ factor on the flat! The judges absolutely love him and he’s won 7 out of his last 10 shows, with scores ranging from 70-75% at affiliated prelim level. He is more than ready to be out competing with someone at novice/elementary, lovely mediums, understands his basic lateral work, works in a consistent and correct outline and is very rideable allowing the rider to gain those extra marks!
So easy to deal with both at home and away at shows, often taken to shows alone by small lady rider where he will stand quietly on the lorry and isn’t a minutes bother! Great to box(trailer/lorry),shoe,clip, catch and bath. Will live in or out and isn’t a whizzy sharp horse who needs daily work to keep him sane! No vices and a happy chappy in the stable who is happy to be fussed over or equally happy being left to eat his food.
Great to hack both alone and in company, super in traffic, has been owned by a 70yr old small lady over the past 2 years who has hacked him for miles and dealt with his daily care and riding with absolutely no issues. Has previously evented at be100/novice level so is used to busy atmospheres, warm ups, working on grass etc and has always proved to be sane and sensible.
Ideal for an amateur wanting a horse to either progress through the levels or do very well at prelim/novice. Please see video of him below;
