Huge Event Prospect!
The talent and temperament to seriously excel!
This lovely chap is really a superstar in the making! Willing, honest and such a genuine attitude to everything asked of him! With his lovely paces, superb scopey jump and fantastic temperament there is no reason why he won't be a serious contender at not only grassroots level but higher up the grades aswell.
Basil is a 15.2hh rising 6yr old ISH bay gelding, he was born to event with super conformation, clean legs and superb feet. He is perfectly built to event being light on his feet and a stride which you can really lengthen allowing him to cover the ground xc extremely well!
He loves to work and has a really trainable brain, picking things up very quickly he is always willing to learn, he is a real breath of fresh air always forward thinking, never backward and always wanting to get on with his job.
He has predominately been produced to event and has had experience across all disciplines, including all riding club activities. Has competed at unaffiliated ODE's with lots of success upto 1m, aswell as showjumping and dressage.
As you can see from his video he absolutely loves his jumping both xc and sj, he has a scopey agile jump and throws a fantastic shape with a really good back end action, he certainly isn't going to be having any poles down! Very brave and bold xc, not phased by anything asked of him from jumping into water, ditches, the biggest of tables and combinations. Was happily schooling be100/novice with ease both sj and xc, he is more than ready to be out at be90/be100 at the start of the season and could be a serious contender for the 6yr old classes at the end of the season!
Has three lovely paces and works in a correct consistent outline in all three gaits, he is responsive to the aids without being sharp and has a very adjustable canter making it very easy to see a good stride when jumping. With continued education in the area he should easily be a 20's horse!
A happy chap to have around on the yard, perfect to box,shoe,clip and for the dentist, will live in or out and gets on well with both mates and geldings. Always has his ears forward and very happy with both horse and human company, no vices a real sweet horse to own. Perfect to hack both alone,in company and is traffic,never nappy or backwards, a pleasure to hack as he walks out well and doesn't need nagging.
Good home sort for this super little horse as we've grown quite attached to his outlook on life and great personality. Would be ideal for someone who wants a quality horse to event to maybe eventually do higher level but could be competitive at grassroots this season.
