16hh 5yo bay TB gelding. A straightforward and quality prospect ready to produce on in any sphere. ROR eligible.
Alan is a real sweetheart with a truly kind and gentle soul. He absolutely loves to be cuddled and chatted to and will fall asleep in your arms having his ears rubbed! He is a compact, athletic, sporty model who will require a petite rider. Retired sound from flat racing having run a total of 5 times throughout 2020.
Alan has taken to retraining like a natural. He is a lovely mover with 3 active, rhythmical paces including a well balanced, uphill canter. He has a fantastic hind leg and is an obedient and responsive ride without being sharp. Working sweetly into the contact in all 3 paces, takes the bridle well and is always ridden in a snaffle and basic tack. Although only at the beginning of his education he has the basics and is ready to build on. Ready to go out and attempt a basic dressage test with plenty of natural ability and potential to produce up the levels.
Has just started to jump proving to be bold and showing a lot of promise. He really does try his best every time and will give anything a go. Trotting over little fillers and water trays comfortably.
Excellent to hack, Alan is good on the roads and is not a spooky type. Generally unphased by most things we have exposed him to, hacks out alone and in company, leads or follows.
Alan has a great attitude to his work. He is very willing to try and learns and improves quickly. Every session is useful to him. He has the brain and ability to be a really special little horse for the right rider, whatever your discipline whether you are looking to happy hack, specialise or just do a bit of everything. A very genuine, straightforward young horse with the basics, ready to build on for teenager or amateur. We will continue to produce him until sold and so price may increase.
Does windsuck but not excessively. No quirks or hang ups, does need more practice loading.
