He went to the beach and never got fizzy. He is lovely to handle with a fantastic temperament. Strictly no novices, Felix needs an ambitious rider who is looking to have fun.”

She is a beautiful mover and has the most beautiful temperament to match. Top class potential for British Eventing/age classes this year. She comes direct from the breeder, is a total blank canvas and totally unspoiled. She was professionally broken in 2020 and was riding away sweet before being turned away for the winter to mature up now ready to come back in for producing. She has a small insignificant scar to her foreleg, but this is purely cosmetic. Open to vet.”
