16hh 8yo Dressage/ trail horse
Buzz has been training (up to Elementary level/ competed successfully to Novice) and was destined to move to New Zealand with me shortly. He’s a super horse, supple balanced and responsive to ride with a beautiful connection. He is bold on the trails and has seen it all, he can be ridden alongside main roads in heavy traffic. We often ride down South West Highway. Alert and confident, he’s perfect lead trail horse! Has also jumped a handful of times up to 80cm rounds beautifully. Of the total of six dressage/ jumping competitions he has attended he has won at four.
He had an injury to a hind hoof 5 years ago and this has caused him no bother to date (has been barefoot), I have recently found the injury site was bothering him when in hard work and opted to put shoes on. He did not step lame, but became a little tender in his back. He is currently in full work, sound and very healthy. However I have decided it is best to find him a home instead of exporting him. Absolutely gut wrenching sale.
I see this horse being perfect for a lady rider wanting to do lessons/ clinics and bridle trails, or he may suit a mans trail horse, he could suit other riding styles and would do well Western. He may even be suited as a lesson horse or RDA. Some competition may be an option but I will not sell him to a home expecting him to be on a competition schedule.
If you want something a little special well trained and trustworthy to have enjoyable rides on Buzz is your guy. Buzz is beautiful to handle, self loads on the float perfect to clip. In work and ready to go PPE welcome.
