Future 3* Eventer!: “Punching in a Dream” 2008, 16.3hh (approx) dark brown, thoroughbred, gelding. Punchy has been in our family since a yearling, so this is an extremely hard sale and he will only be sold to a serious competition home.

Showjumping has been my main focus competition wise, having competed up to 1m, and schooling around 1.10m rarely taking rails. I have competed Punchy in grade 3/2 PC dressage where he always turns heads and scores well due to his flashy presence and floating movement. He works in a nice frame, and has established leg yield, shoulder in, walk to canter & has been working on flying changes. He has attended some eventing clinics with me, although showed his real talents as an eventer with Simon Tainsh.

Punchy has been with by Simon Tainsh for the past 3 months. They won their first competition together finishing on their dressage score, Intro (EVA80), at Friends of Werribee and finished 2nd at Vic State Champs in the prelim (EVA95). Simon said he cruised around the XC and didn’t bat an eyelid at anything! They have been schooling up to 1.20 showjumping with ease.

He is a pleasure to handle, will tie up all day and floats like a gem, he catches you, falls asleep for the farrier, and doesn’t put up a fight to worm. His only downfall is that he can be horse & noise shy and when I am nervous he plays on this, so he needs a calm & confident rider that isn’t fazed by this cheeky behaviour.

He is a very fit, athletic horse with the talent to go to the top in any discipline, unfortunately he needs 5 days a week work and I simply don’t have the time. In saying that, I have never lunged him after a break and he is always fine to jump on and bring back into work. He has the talent to make it as an eventer, the movement and trainability to succeed in straight dressage, and the scope and carefulness to do pure showjumping. He will be a real superstar with the right rider.

This is an extremely difficult sale and one that I will most likely regret, so he will only be sold to the very best of homes that will keep me updated on his progress.

Located in Eddington (near Maldon/Maryborough VIC) 0411695686

Will be home from Kia Ora Performance Horses at the end of October
