Proven Grand Prix Ability: “Re-Advertised as Sale has fallen through, quick sale needed, substantial discount available for quick decision”

Big Al has had an easy life so far, he was started as a 4 y.o and ridden by a young girl to a few HRCAV rallies and then sold. Due to ownership dispute he then spent the next few years doing nothing. I have owned him for 1 year only but due to my inability to keep riding now have to sell him.
Before spending a lot of time on him I decided to find out if he could go to Grand Prix. So he has still not been to a competition as such but only to official practice days where he behaved impeccably.
At this stage he can do flying changes (including sequences), reasonable Piaffe and a good baby Passage. He is very willing to collect without getting hot. He can do all that in a snaffle or in a double bridle. He is also very good to ride out. Al's dam is Northern Aphrodite who is a sister to Rachael Downs' Sydney Olympic Games mount and his sire is the Holsteiner Favus a successful showjumper and now a very reliable hunter.
Due to my inability to ride any longer, Big Al has been with Lesley-Anne Taylor at Kurmond near Richmond, NSW. She calls him Al the postie because as the quietest horse on the place she loves to ride him down to the mail boxes to collect her mail. And on the way back they might do a little bit of Piaffe and Passage under the trees.
He will pass any Vet Check but he does have sidebone.Experienced horse Vets do not classify this as unsoundness. There are many international hoses with this and never ever lame. Al has not had a days lameness.

If interested please ring me, the owner on 0400 488 812 or Lesley-Anne on 0419 182 443
