16.3hh 6yo dun British bred sports horse gelding Magician GF x Radetsky.
Stunning, upstanding model with a big front and a happy-go-lucky, cheerful disposition. A real head-turner not just in his colouring but in the way he holds himself. Full of presence. Despite his size and model he does not feel big to ride. Backed and produced his full ridden career by a small lady rider and his full history is known. However would not suit someone who is going to be easily intimidated by a big upstanding horse.
Working well on the flat with 3 good balanced paces and a soft mouth. Wants to be ridden correctly off the leg into a quiet, consistent hand - doesn't need pulling or see-sawing about. If you ride him backwards he won't go anywhere! Very trainable with a super attitude to his work. Has done some local level dressage with plenty of ability and potential to go on, would certainly do BD.
Very good to a fence. Bold and rhythmical, doesn't change on the way in or out but takes you in nicely without being strong. Has been cross country schooling and done eventers challenges and arena eventing. Showjumping is currently his weakest phase but will certainly improve with strength and production.
Not at all strong, silly, hot or sharp. Has a lovely laid-back attitude to his work and life in general.
Hasn't yet hunted but certainly has the brain for it. Would look very impressive on the field and has the potential to end up a real jumper. Fit and ready for autumn hunting.
Excellent to hack, goes on his own and in company. Marches out happily and is good to ride and lead in either position. Good in traffic and in open spaces, really enjoys himself out and about and is great company. Currently in a snaffle for all activities. Very straightforward horse but we would prefer him to go to a capable home where he will be enjoyed and appreciated so please no novices. No quirks or vices. Has been seen to have a mild shiver occasionally but doesn't seem to affect him with the farrier.
Because of this horse's colour we have had a lot of timewasters and joyriders. Before enquiring please consider - if this horse was bay, would you be as interested? A viewing will not entitle you to ride and we reserve the right to end a viewing at any point.
