3. ‘One in a million’

All-rounders for sale

 

Height: 15hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 12

Selling points: “‘Pie’ has been with us for the past five years, carrying my daughter as her first horse at 12. Now sadly outgrown we would love him to go to a fantastic family home to continue doing what he loves. He has been the most versatile horse you could want, turning his hoof to anything and coming back with a red rosette most days. He is eye-catching, evenly marked and has good solid conformation — no blemishes.  He is never lame, sick or sorry.  He has straight, rhythmic, easy paces, and is a lovely ride in the dressage arena, achieving 74%+ at prelim level.  He loves to jump and has scope to burn, but he is economical and careful over his fences, staying in a rhythm around his courses, and not overjumping. He is a ‘team favourite’ due to his consistency in the ring. It is rare for him to fault showjumping. Highlights of his competition career so far include coming eighth at the NSEA National Championships team showjumping and being top of the East Midlands regional points league in Just for Schools, 2016. He has had many wins jumping at 80-90cm including working hunter classes. He loves cross-country and has popped up to BE novice level fences with ease. He has hunted with the Quorn, where he stood beautifully at the meet, and jumped everything he was pointed at. In addition to showing his young jockey the ropes, he was an able and willing ride for mum — he hacks beautifully and attended a number of long distance rides with her also. And he does all this in a snaffle bridle and a plain noseband. He is very versatile in his ‘living requirements’ — he has spent the past five years working and competing from the field, but he is equally at home in a stable. He has exceptionally solid feet and is a very good doer and really food orientated! He is easy to handle and to load, travel and handle by yourself if you are going out competing. He ties up quietly next to the lorry/trailer and he is very patient waiting for his turn.”
