Rubin has taken me from riding my first novice test 3 years ago to now successfully competing small tour. Rubin is a very kind and giving horse that will give you everything. He is a horse that can teach you everything. He is established in all his Inter 1 work (half pass, canter pirouettes, tempi changes) , currently training 1 tempi’s. He has a very powerful trot and finds it very easy to collect in all his work. His canter is very comfortable with plenty of engagement and his walk quite often scores 8 & 9’s !
Rubin has qualified me for interschool nationals for our first year together and has also been selected twice for the Young Dressage Rider Squad as well as the Rising stars squad. Although Rubin was gelded as an 11 year old he has absolutely no stallion tendencies. He is stabled, led and tied next to mares with no problem.
Rubin is perfect to shoe, float, worm and ride out with others or by himself. He does not change when he is taken off the property and has easily been one of the easiest horses I have owned! Rubin would suit a rider with the desire to compete and learn the higher movements. I would like to see Rubin continue his competition career as I believe that is where his talent lies.
I never thought I would have to sell my best friend, but I am studying full time this year and he deserves someone with the time to give him the attention he deserves and I truly believe he should go on to teach another rider as much as he has taught me.
Please no time wasters as this is a very heart-breaking sale.
