Flashy Competition Horse/Allrounder

Fantastic and capable allrounder. Due to lack of facilities (a grass arena), I have mainly used him to hack alone since he came to me in Dec 2020. He is great in traffic and open spaces, is used to farm animals and machinery, also hacks in company and is more kick than whoa. He is just too much horse for me and I am looking for a pony. He is currently being professionally schooled once a week and despite not being in the school since last summer he is working very nicely, making progress weekly and is enjoying it. He is capable of much more and would easily produce a lovely dressage test. He has both a cheeky character and a trainable attitude in equal measure. He would suit a confident rider as he can on occasion nap and although this is easily remedied with a tap of the schooling whip, he may have a kick out before carrying on and for this reason he is not suitable for a novice as he needs to be told who is the boss. He would ideally suit a competitive teen or adult, who has the time to bring him into full work, and is looking for a horse to take out and compete as he has done in previous homes. He has competed and jumped up to 90/1m, and been out cross-country schooling with his last owner and proved to be very capable. Although he loves jumping, he is not strong, knows his job and will confidently lead his rider into a fence. He can put the odd buck in after a fence if he hasn’t done it in a while, out of pure excitement. Don’t be put off by his age, as he is very low mileage and his brain is more like that of a four-year-old, which is another reason why he is for sale as he has so much life left in him and loads more to give than I can confidently handle. On the ground, although he is a big lad, I can catch him and lead him in with one hand and I have let children fuss him, as he is fantastic on the ground. He loads like an angel in a trailer or box, good to catch, clip, shoe (currently fully shod), worm and is up to date with vaccinations, dentist and back. He does require sedation once a year for the dentist. No stable vices, passported and microchipped. He is hardy and is happy to live out or be stabled overnight. Whilst with me, he has lived with a companion gelding. He is a striking horse with a great conformation and will go far in the right hands and I am genuinely sad to admit that we are not the right partnership. He loves attention (gets jealous if he is not at the center of it!) and he will happily stand for a pamper and fuss and will even perform a party piece for treats. Someone is going to be very lucky to have him and unlock his true potential, he is gorgeous. No LWVTB, seeking a 5* home; no time wasters please.
