16.1 HH ID x TB - 7 year old Dark Bay
- Irish Draught x Thoroughbred
Dollar is a 7 year old, 16.1HH, IDxTB.
Very sad sale as just started university.
Same home since he was 6 months old, shown successfully in-hand at county level in Hunter and Sport Horse classes as a yearling and 2 year old then backed professionally. As a 4 year old he was 4th in the Ridden Novice Hunters at the Bath and West.
He has been produced slowly and correctly, currently competes unaffiliated up to 90cm. Could easily affiliate with some more experience as he has all the scope and power you could ever want. Attends Riding Club flatwork lessons every other week. He loves XC and schools very well. Would make an ideal hunter, as he is very bold.
He is quirky and full of character, so is NOT a novice ride. He can nap with less confident riders on hacks but is lovely once away from the yard alone and in company, and is snaffle mouthed even when jumping. Always perfect to clip and catch. He is strong on the ground and requires a chifney.
At 4 he was diagnosed with bone spavins in a back hock, this has been managed with steroid injections and tildrin for the first year and since been untouched. It does not affect him in any way and he loves working, however he will not pass a flexion test and has occasional stiffness. This condition may still resolve as the spavins can fuse.
Finding the perfect home is much more important than price. £1000 without tack.
