Selling points: “I bought this horse when he was a six-year-old straight from the hunting field where he was used as a hireling. He has hunted with many local packs and he loves his job. He jumps everything he is pointed at with many different people on his back. He has been eventing with placings at BE90 and BE100 level with dressage scores in the 20s. He would make a magnificent master’s/hunt horse. Good to do.”

He has huge potential for 1.60m classes when he is older and the talent to take him all the way, making him a grand prix prospect for the future. He is bold, brave, careful and scopey. He would suit any level rider looking for future success and is the perfect gentleman in every way.
