Description
Approx 16.1hh 7yo gelding Garrison Royale x Olympic Lux. A quality, low mileage sports horse with a bright future ahead. As a young horse Rolex competed in low level showjumping and eventing, including BYEH. Most recently he has been a leisure horse used for hacking, lessons and schooling and for this reason he is still low mileage competitively. His ability and temperament make him the ideal prospect for a competent rider on a restricted budget to bring on and enjoy. Rolex is a good mover and shows very promising work on the flat. He is naturally uphill with good rhythmical paces and a big canter. He works well into the contact off the leg into a nice hand. Still a little weak due to recent inconsistent work but this is sure to improve quickly and easily and will only help his way of going. Potential for BD. Rolex is very bold to a fence and loves his jumping. He takes you in and tries his best every time. Very good technique behind. As his canter strengthens and improves so has his rideability and technique and this will only continue. Rolex will soon be ready for a British Novice with potential for at least Newcomers with the right rider. Has cross country schooled proving to be bold and happy in the job. Loves water, has schooled all types of fences including ditches and banks. All the ability to make a lovely amateur eventer or team chaser. Is well hunted, always in a snaffle, and is outhunting now. Rolex is good to do on the ground in all ways, loads and travels well and works very sweetly away from home. Not phased by new environments. Kind and cuddly in the stable, loves attention! A real character who will make you laugh every day. Hacks out well in company and alone but can be a little shy of traffic on his own. He has been fine with us on our country roads with a quiet and confident rider but he would be best suited to a home that doesn't require a lot of heavy or fast traffic hacking. Good in open spaces. Has been treated for ulcers in the past but has been clear for some time. Is not on any supplements and has no particular ongoing management needs For sale on behalf of a client due to change in circumstances. https://youtu.be/hJ63WqRwT2c
