Punch is a 17.1 8yo WB X TB gelding by Aurum Rivière D'Or (competed Prix St Georges) grandsire - Regardez Moi (Grand Prix) and out of Dreamy (TB - Family Ties). Punch is a really eye-catching, athletic type. With his striking dark colour, tall stature and super elegant front end he is sure to attract attention wherever he goes. He works well in an attractive outline and has definitely has that look at me presence. He has 3 high quality paces with an especially uphill canter with excellent ground cover and balance. Punch has been fuss-free in terms of where he has been kept here with us. He is happiest in the paddock but is great in the stables and yards although can become a little bored at times. He has been paddocked previously with a friend and is happy either way. He is a good doer for his size, but does need hard-feeding and access to good quality hay and pasture. Although Punch is yet to compete, he has been out and about and has coped very well in all sorts of new environments. He was started in 2019 by Alistair McClean. He can be a little looky/do a small spook when he is unsure but nothing that would bother a competent rider/handler. On the flat, Punch tends to be more woah than go but will get going when asked. He maintains an independent rhythm and won't speed up when you soften the reins. He is relatively supple both ways and comfortable to sit on . He is steady in the contact, and understands half-halts.

He is working at around a novice level with basic laterals established and serious potential to excel in this area (or showing) with further training. Punch has had a previous issue with some weakness behind but after a very successful surgery, rest and rehabilitation, vets have declared him sound and fit to train and compete as normal, with the recommendation that he might be best to stick to dressage (no restrictions) and low level jumping/eventing as a precaution. Pre-purchase veterinary examinations are welcome, and we can share more about his soundness history to those interested. Although a big boy, Punch is very sweet natured and loves people. He has always been very good to do everything with, although can become a little impatient at times, he is mostly very obliging. Punch is a gentle giant with a solid foundation of basics, and lovely paces and rideability. Although he is very sensible, he is not bombproof, and this in conjunction with his size makes him best suited to an ambitious intermediate plus rider who would like to excel in the dressage/showing ring, and dabble a little with pole work/cavalettis/small jumps. He is an affectionate, genuine soul that aims to please, and really enjoys having a job to do and we feel he will respond best to semi-regular-regular work. Punch is for sale through no fault of his own, and is a very genuine boy with a bright future ahead. His next rider will be extremely lucky to secure a beautiful, honest horse like Punch and we are so excited to see what he gets up to in his new home.
