Approx 16.3Hh eye catching 4 year old chestnut thoroughbred gelding.
Elvis is a seriously cool horse who has the potential to progress in any sphere.
He is a smart mover with three active, ground covering paces. He has a good attitude towards work and he learns quickly. Has a lovely soft mouth and is light in the contact, snaffle mouthed and not strong. Elvis is well built with more bone than you typical thoroughbred, he also has good, strong feet and is currently barefoot.
Elvis has been out numerous times over the past few months to clinics, arena hires and unaffiliated dressage, he always loads and travels well and will happily stand quietly on the lorry. Works well around other horses, he was also unfazed by the whiteboards at his first dressage competition. Elvis is really enjoying his jumping, happily popping around a course of 70-80cm with fillers and water trays both at home and out schooling. Definitely has scope for more, he always tries his hardest to please and will jump off any stride.
Elvis has also recently been out autumn hunting where he has been a pleasure to ride, he crosses the country easily including a few ditches with no problems.
Elvis currently lives out 24/7 with my mare (equally will turnout alone), he is happy to come into a stable when necessary and will also stand tied up on the yard quietly. He is a real sweetheart who loves a good scratch. He is good to have his feet trimmed. Also hacks out well in company, not bothered by traffic (we have met the bin lorry on more than one occasion!) and is happy to go in front or behind the other horse - I have not tried hacking on his own.
When I first got Elvis he did nap where he would either try to run through a shoulder or he would just stand still, I believe this is due to feeling insecure and now he has gained in confidence and has built a partnership with me he very rarely does this anymore and if he does I can now stop him and ride him out of it within seconds.
Elvis really does have the potential to either progress up the levels eventing, or he would equally suit someone looking for a smart grassroots horse. He is one that doesn’t need riding every day - I can give him a couple of days off and get straight back on and he is not sharp or silly.
Elvis has so much potential for anyone looking for a fun, competitive horse. He would suit a calm, competent rider who can give him confidence.
