Description
Heartbreaking sale of a truly ‘one in a million’ rising 7YO. 16.2 and absolutely stunning. TB by Westerner (only ever did one point to point, just too slow, came to us straight from the track 3 years ago). Completely clean-legged, open to any vetting. Snaffle-mouthed. In the years we’ve owned Roo, we’ve done various hunter trials, fun rides, SJ classes and xc hires with him, he’s also been to the beach several times which he loves! We’ve not hunted him but he would be mega! We always say that Roo is not your normal TB - his funny character and chilled approach to life makes him stand out. Roo enjoys working on the flat, with his walk and trot established and more work needed to establish consistency in the canter (we’ve just not done much schooling with him). Instructors have highlighted his paces as a real strength, a future career in dressage would come naturally. Roo enjoys popping a fence and is bold across country. Roo belongs to my mum, however I’m the SJ jockey and with a baby on the way, he hasn’t been jumped in a while. A wonderful hacking horse. Good to hack alone or in company. Has the odd spook but never malicious or ‘unhinged’! Would excel in a range of homes, a wonderful mother/daughter share or riding club horse, very capable of jumping 70/80 - haven’t pushed him higher due to personal preference. Having owned many TBs, I’d say he’s more of a rustic jumper than a show jumper (he’ll never stop at a SJ, just more scopey over rustic). Roo has a scar on his side from getting stuck in a gateway as a yearling. This has never caused him any issues and the fact he’s still so calm and level-headed despite such an injury is a testament to his character. Can be ‘wiggly’ when being groomed but soon settles. No vices. Teeth and feet up-to-date. 5 * home only for our gorgeous boy. Can be seen in Malvern area, arena available to try. More pics and vids available. Contact my mum - 07990075763
