17.1 6yo Cobra 18 gelding
Rocco came to us September 2020 and I quickly realised he wasn’t going anywhere in a hurry as I fell in love! He had the winter off to mature and then came back to work in April (due to an injury to myself). He started work in April and then qualified for Royal International at his first attempt in June, was 5th at The Highland Show, 7th at the Scottish and then we went to Stoneleigh where he made his side saddle debut after only having it on 3 times! Then straight to great Yorkshire where he was pulled 4th in a very strong novice class but due to a bit malfunction with the judge he wasn’t placed but got beautiful comments. He then continued contesting the hoys classes coming away with some placings and some really positive comments - he has been amazing this year, he got me back in the ring doing what I loved and looked after me which at only 5 is phenomenal.if However saying this we would rather he went to a jumping/eventing family as he does have huge scope and we feel his brain needs a more active job than showing!! He would be an amazing workers horse.
Rocco hacks out alone and in company is a pleasure to work with and easy to do , but he can be spooky (but never at shows ????????♀️). He has been an absolute pleasure to show this season and this decision has absolutely not came easily and I’m sure I’ll regret it - if we don’t find the right family he won’t go!
