Shaken not Stirred, 16hh, 8y/o thoroughbred gelding by Burnardini. In the two and a half years that we’ve owned rocky he has proven to be a very safe and willing mount who simply loves to jump. Rocky has been successfully eventing at the 95 level and showjumping clear 105cm rounds for the past year. Rocky is a real confidence builder around the cross country course and has helped my daughter start enjoying cro…ss country again. Rocky was originally purchased from rehome a racehorse as he came off the track as a very quiet stallion. He was soon gelded and taken to the royal show for 10 days to be a mounted steward in which he really proved how level headed he is. We later discovered he was a talented jumper and my daughter took over. Rocky is a true gentleman to have around the property and to take to events. He has no vices on the ground or on his back, is a good doer and is perfect to camp with at events. We think Rocky would suit a competitive junior rider who will take him up through the grades. He has shown that he has the scope and honesty to get to 105 and 1* eventing level, but as it’s doubtful that we will be eventing in the future he’s going to waste. Rocky’s only downfall is his movement, he has a straight forward thoroughbred stride so if you’re chasing a horse with exuberant movement please don’t enquire. However, he does produce calm, accurate dressage tests that consistently pull in the 50s. With some more work we are certain he will improve in this area, unfortunately we don’t have the time to put into him. Rocky is for sale due to no fault of his own. We simply can no longer balance extra horses with full time work and working on our racehorses. We love rocky and have had a lot of fun with him. He will only go to the best of homes where he won’t be getting wasted. This horse loves to be out jumping and we’d love to see him keep doing that. Please seriously enquiries only, we don’t have the time for timewasters.
