17hh 11yo by Danzante IMP (De Niro) out of a Gymnastik Star mare. Scores in the high 60’s to low 70’s in Novice, mid 60’s in Elementary, places at state level in QLD and WA.
Super moving, loads of suspension in the trot and a powerful canter. Very soft back making sitting to his paces (including extensions) easy and comfortable. Working all his laterals, walk pirouettes, easy counter canter (will pick up any lead asked), walk through changes. Free walk/trot is one of his favourite parts of a test.
Soft snaffle mouth, works great in a double too. Easy jump, has jumped 90cm, would never look at a fence but he is not worried when he knocks them down so not a competitive jumper. No previous injuries or any soundness issues, vet check welcome.
No recent comp results as I work weekends, but has been out to Darling Downs and clinics recently and was as cool as a cucumber. Has been ridden by beginner children, will just drop his nose to the floor and plod. Definitely tending behind the leg rather than being too firey however can be worked into a more forward moving frame with a more active warm up. Quiet with dogs, quad bikes and kids, fine after time off (just lazy), very affectionate temperament. Great with farrier, rugging, stabling, no fence walking/wind sucking/scrambling etc but would do well in an environment with someone who is able to work him more regularly, as I work full time, and study, he is not getting enough work to thrive. Genuinely special horse, will be a very hard sale only to the best of homes.
$20,000. Located Oakford WA.
