Approx 16.2hh 8yo American Thoroughbred gelding Super Saver x Menifee. Eligible ROR. A true gentleman.
Roger is a truly kind, gentle soul. He retired from racing sound and ran 19 times over 5 years. There aren't enough superlatives for me to express what a gentleman and a sweetheart Roger is.
Schooling quietly and tries very hard to please, will school in the arena or in a field and doesn't get distracted by anything going on around him. He has a good step and shows good work into the bridle. A little green in his schooling still but he will learn whatever you teach him. He is responsive to the aids but has more whoa than go! Very chilled, laid-back character. Not at all sharp, silly, spooky or quirky. Very forgiving and would be suitable for a novice or nervous rider.
Has recently learned to jump and pops a little fence nicely with a good technique. Takes you in and constantly improves and grows in confidence. Will go on to a future in sport with the right production.
Roger's current strength is hacking. He is a brilliant hack and will bumble along happily on a loose rein. Good on the roads and in open spaces, goes alone and in company. We think he could have the potential to make a smart hunter.
Very easy to have on the yard with no stable vices. Is happy living in or out and we have had him both in a mixed herd, same sex herd and with just a mare. He is adaptable and has so far been happy wherever we put him! He is excellent to do on the ground, polite and mannerly.
Roger always seems to have a smile on his face and is just happy to be with you and be your friend. We would like Roger to go to a home where he will be loved and appreciated as one of the family.
