Bombproof and handsome allrounder: READY FREDDY
Looking for a winning dressage horse but can’t afford a Warmblood? Or maybe just a super quiet adult riding or pony club mount that can do dressage, jumping and trail riding? Then Ready Freddy is well worth a look.
Freddy is a 16.2 hh, unraced 8 year old thoroughbred by Viking Ruler who has done plenty of Adult Riding Club clinics and competitions where he’s only once placed lower than third in the dressage (his first comp at Level 3) and has won two championships, one at Elmore and the other just recently at the Tatura Dressage Classic.
Freddy has a huge over-track at the walk, a naturally rhythmic trot and a great canter that will only get more uphill with more work. He’s always scored in the mid to high sixties and even a 74 per cent. In his prelim 1.2 test at the Tatura protocol day he beat several warmbloods ridden by professional riders as he’s so calm and accurate to ride. He has also done show jumping and cross country clinics where nothing phases him, but I believe dressage is his forte. Freddy has done plenty of trail riding including a ride to Mt Stirling and Craig’s Hut where he’s happy to plod along at the back or out in the front.
He’s unflappable and loves people. As you can see, he is a very handsome boy. His only faults: a few scars from getting caught in a fence that don’t affect his soundness, a dish action on the near fore which makes no difference in dressage, and if anything, he’s on the lazy side, though has a bit more ‘go’ at a competition. Currently graded 3 dressage and 4 show jumping at Adult Riding, this horse has a lot further to go with the right rider or would happily take a nervous rider wanting a reliable, handsome horse that is a delight to own.
I’ve competed Freddy in gale force winds and with dogs, tractors, sheep, even cross country training with a huge earth mover working within a few metres of him and he didn’t bat an eyelid.
Freddy will happily work in a frame for you with a very soft mouth, or you can ride him on the end of the buckle if that’s more your thing. The perfect all-rounder for a nervous or older rider.
PM for price and contact details. He is located in Benalla, 2 hours north of Melbourne, 1.5 hours drive from Albury airport.
