Approx 16.3hh 6yo registered ISH gelding Mountain Diamond x Cruising x Clover Hill. Super straightforward and genuine top quality proven amateur event horse ready to progress.
Vinnie is a stunning, eye-catching model with highly sought after traditional Irish breeding. He has good bone and barrel without being heavy and a sweet outlook. A real Grassroots contender with the potential and breeding to go on, with a maternal brother competing at 3*. Fully history known as originally sourced from the breeder in Ireland.
Working well on the flat with 3 good paces. He is light in the hand and a responsive, obedient ride without being sharp or hot. Very comfortable and rideable, producing good results in the ring, often in the 20s or early 30s. Also part of the winning team in the E-riders dressage league. Has started training flying changes, counter canter and medium trot. `Very willing and eager to please with a great attitude to his work.
Well established at 80cm, attended many of the Cotswold Cup events in 2021, finishing 3rd at Gatcombe. Finished 10th at his first BE80 with a 32 dressage double clear. Most recently he was 2nd in the Cotswold Cup at Oxstalls in June with a 28.3 dressage double clear and is finding it very easy at this level. Ready for BE90 now and could go BE100 by the end of the season with the right rider. Potential to go on with the right rider or make a super competitive Grassroots prospect.
Hunted a season and a half with the County Roscommon and would make a super hunter to go on with, suitable for lady or gentleman rider. Loves to jump and is very genuine to a fence, could really build a rider's confidence. Maintains his rhythm in and out and is super bold without being strong. Very rideable and unphased by different types of fences. Will forgive a miss and always does his best to get to the other side. As well as eventing Vinnie has taken part in dressage, combined training and showjumping.
Hacks alone and in company, good with traffic and farm machinery. Doesn't need riding every day. No vices, good to do in all ways and up to date with everything. Turns out in a mixed herd and plays well with others.
Good in the stable with good manners and a lovely, friendly character Vinnie is a real pet. Always greets you with a smile on his face and loves attention. Enjoys a fuss and is good with children and dogs. Vinnie is the ideal competition horse for a working amateur or family as he will fit into your lifestyle and is the kind of horse you could have in your backyard. He is kind enough for the kids to brush, for your mom to bring in from the field whilst you're at work or for partner to hold whilst you walk the course - and then maybe borrow for themselves to go hunting or fun riding on the weekend!
Has been produced by a teenager under professional guidance and is suitable for a competent, competitive teenager or amateur. Although Vinnie is a real gentle soul who only wants to please, he does need to be respected as the quality young sports horse he is.
Vinnie is admired everywhere he goes and is loved by everyone. We would like him to go to someone who loves their horses and doesn't just want a machine - he needs his kisses and cuddles! For the right person Vinnie is a straightforward, user-friendly horse for a competitive rider to take on to great things and be the horse of a lifetime!
