GCE High Distinction - Royal Champion Hack: GCE High Distinction - Ritchie
10 year old 16hh Brown Thoroughbred Gelding
Sire: Dehere
Dam: Ivy League
Registered Australian Stud Book, ANSA, SHC, EA

Ritchie is a competitive open hack for an older teenager, lady or gent rider. He is a joy to own, perfectly mannered on the ground and is a pleasure to have around. He is very safe, and will never bolt, buck, shy or rear. Ritchie is totally sound and has 3 lovely paces. He has never had an issue with floating or loading and is great for the vet and farrier.

He is educated in his lateral work and is working on flying changes. He is always worked at home in a snaffle and can be shown in a snaffle or double bridle. He is only ever ridden by my sister and myself, and we are both small young lady riders. He has qualified us for Grand Nationals in his Open class and our Rider classes, as well as performing as a child’s rider class mount at many major shows with little work down. He performs well at many agricultural shows, this year coming home with Supreme led, open and rider wins. He particularly excels in Thoroughbred and ANSA classes, and Thoroughbred judges always love his type.

Ritchie has also been taken to Pony Club where he has participated in 60cm showjumping, cross country and sporting. I have no talent or huge interest in these areas so they have not been fully explored, however he is extremely eager and athletic. He has also competed in pairs and team of 4 classes and is perfect working with other horses.
