Ultimate Junior Schoolmaster - 3* Eventer: I have come to the extremely difficult decision to find a new home/rider for my horse of a lifetime, Bentleigh Oliver. This striking 16.3hh brown TB gelding has taken me from having never evented all the way to 3*. I would love to just retire him with me but unfortunately he is in no way ready for that!! At 16 years young, Ollie is the ideal schoolmaster with plenty of experience, but sound and fit with plenty more to offer another lucky rider.

Ollie has 3 great natural paces and is well schooled on the flat. He is a lovely soft ride with all 3* movements established - flying changes, shoulder in, travers, half pass etc.
This horse is really in his element in the cross country phase however, with clear and under time his specialty! He is an absolute mother's dream having brought me home safe every time even around the toughest tracks. Ridden in a snaffle he is point and shoot xc and has an incredible ability to get himself and his rider out of all sorts of trouble. Wonderfully honest and straight, he is easily one of the best xc horses I will ever have the privilege of riding.

An absolute gentleman to handle, he is easy to do everything with - good to wash/shoe/clip/load/travel etc. Can be quirky to catch with new people, however I have not had trouble with him. He thrives off a one on one relationship and will try his heart out for his rider if they give him the time and commitment he deserves.

Ollie has a wealth of experience at tracks all over Australia, having taken several riders through the grades. He has brought me years of joy and success, including places on junior teams and state squads. Extremely competitive junior horse with too many junior wins/placings to list. His results are too numerous to mention but a few highlights include:
- 6th CCIJ1* Melbourne 3de
- part of winning junior NSW team at Melbourne 3de and Sydney 3de
- 9th CCI1* Lakes and Craters 3de
- 4th CNC2* Wallaby Hill
- 5th CIC2* Canberra International Horse Trials
- 7th CNC2* Scone
- 9th CIC2* Australian International 3DE at Adelaide (one of only 2 combinations clear inside the time xc)
- 7th CIC3* Goulburn Baxter Boots Lynton NSW State Champs (only one clear and inside time xc)

Ollie would be the ideal eventing schoolmaster for a talented junior or rider looking for an experienced horse go further in eventing with. Absolutely NO BEGINNERS or TIMEWASTERS - this horse is a schoolmaster ideal for showing someone the ropes up the eventing grades NOT teaching someone how to ride. This horse still has plenty to offer and is eager to be out competing again, I have never known any horse to be so happy at competitions as him! This is a rare opportunity for someone to gain experience on a sound, safe and experienced horse. While he is quiet and easy, no very nervous riders please as he is not a nanny horse - he is still fit and keen to compete!
Perfect home for this horse is an absolute priority - home and suitable rider far mrs important than price. May also consider an on property (or very local) lease to right rider, great facilities and access to training on property.
