Dave is a lovely little horse that is eager to please and quick learning. He has three active, elastic paces and works in a consistent, soft outline in the school. He is light on the aids and a forward going ride, always in a snaffle.
This boy is going to be special and would excel in any sphere. He has had a year being produced properly and boasts the following credentials:
He’s been to his first show with a professional rider and placed first in the ROR class, with judge comments of ‘one to watch out for’
He’s well schooled and produced over the last year, with lovely lateral work, flying changes and transitions
Hunting with glamorgan hunt, Dave absolutely loves hunting and will stay out for full 6 hour durations. He’s not phased at all by the hounds or horses all going in different directions
This little horse is honest and straight with fillers and spooky fences. He is confidently jumping around courses of 80cm and has been to a few show jumping training shows and arena hires where he proves to be brave and straightforward.
X country schooled and covered all main elements, up and down stairs, drop fences, water jump, coffins. He’s brave and very forgiving, will go no matter where you end up in front of a fence!
Enjoys beach and sand dune rides
Happily stands around on pub rides!
A pleasure to own and good to do in all ways. He is easy to shoe, clip and handle in general. My 3 year old daughter sits on him and helps hose him down and groom
Hacks in company in front or behind and hacks alone but prefers company. He’s bombproof with all vehicles including combine harvesters.
Vaccinations, worming and dentistry are all up to date and he has regular physio appointments. He also has a great farrier who corrected his bio mechanics.
He does have a slight bowed front tendon from a previous injury racing but this has never caused him a problem and has great clean cool legs
Dave only raced a handle of times so has low mileage
great to load and travel with or without company
Bear in mind, he is an ex-racer so is still not a novice ride. He can have a spin/nap on days he feels like it, although nothing he won’t be encouraged past. He can have a cheeky buck, but very rideable.
Dave has a promising future and he deserves an aspiring rider that can maximise his potential.
Really sad sale as I absolutely love him, I’m just far too tall for him and I’ve taken him as far as I can, I want the best for him so 5* home only
Will suit competent teenager or small adult
