7. ‘An absolute joy’

Screen shot 2015-09-14 at 13.40.50

Height: 15.3hh

Age: four

Gender: gelding

Selling points: “‘Max’ lightly raced on the Flat as a two-year-old. He came out of racing in December 2013 as he was too slow. He has three good paces and could be competitive in BD classes with the right training. He has been cross-country schooling and to some indoor showjumping competitions — he easily has the scope to get to a decent level. Max is delightful to be around, has no vices and can be left for weeks without being ridden and then you can get straight back on as normal.”
