Ollie AKA “Oriental Play” (race name and show name) is a really sweet 16.3 approx Thoroughbred Gelding. DOB 4/11/2011 Experience and Temperament Ollie is a very elegant type, with his bright bay colour and athletic, tall stature. He has eventing at 80cm and show jumping experience at 95cm. He has lovely ground manners for the most part, is always good in the tie ups and would stand tied all day next to the float. He has been perfect in yards whenever away and floats super easily (did used to self load on an angle however his current owner doesn’t have an angle float.) However he can be girthy, and may need a lunge after more than a few days off, however when in work he is usually very good, not spooky or silly at all. He can get a bit keen jumping but nothing unmanageable and once he’s jumped a few fences he settles into a rhythm and feels very relaxed. He can get a little tense in a hectic warm up at shows but but once he’s going he’s focused, settled and manageable. He is easy to take out schooling on his own or with other horses, and works well a group environment. Ollie has been excellent here on the roads and trails around our farm, has been very happy and settled in the stable block, day yards, tie-ups and paddock and doesn’t seem to mind where he is or what horsey friends are around him. Dressage Training Rhythm and paces - Ollie has regular paces with a swingy trot, and an absolutely magnificent, balanced canter. He can be a little lazy at times, he is a generally a very relaxed horse although once you get him going, he is really willing to travel and has a lovely floating feeling. He is happy to cruise along in the rhythm you set and won’t speed off when you soften the reins. Suppleness & Contact - When you first hop on, Ollie can feel a little set in the contact however after he has a canter, he fully lets go and he starts to really let go, move and feels really lovely. Once he’s warmed up, he feels elastic and light in the hand and is naturally quite balanced with a good sense of self-carriage. Once he lets go of his back and starts to bend through his ribs he is much easier to keep in a consistently soft frame. He is steady in the hand, and accepting of the bit. Impulsion & Straightness - Ollie understands the beginnings of the half-halt but due to his occasional laziness he does need some reminders to activate his hind leg and step quicker behind to shift some off the weight off the forehand and onto the hind leg. We are using walk/trot transitions in quick succession to improve his strength and balance and encourage him to develop more uphill tendency. He understands the basics of inside leg to outside rein, however he is definitely straighter going to the left. He needs continued work on the right rein to achieve a high level of straightness and connection as he can fall out slightly through the left shoulder and over bend through the right ribcage. Laterals - Ollie is currently working at around a prelim level on the flat. He has commenced basic laterals like leg-yeild and shoulder-in. Jumping Ollie is very good to jump. He is extremely honest and very brave. He travels in a lovely scopey rhythmic canter mostly, but can get a little playful at times. Although nothing that would worry a confident intermediate rider. Saying this, he still feels very confident and safe to jump. He has a great ground cover, which makes him a serious cross country prospect. He has been jumping a variety of cross country and show jumping fences up to 1m here with Ben and has truly been a delight to jump. He is not a world-beater jumper but absolutely an enjoyable, honest ride. Ollie’s owner, raves about him on cross country saying that he has always brought her home clear and under time and been a very fun xc ride. Rider Suitability Ollie presents a rare opportunity to secure a lovely, genuine upcoming allrounder. All the hard work is done, and he is ready to go on with. He is a really lovely horse with so much to offer a loving home. He does have special shoeing requirements so a home prepared to keep working on his feet with a capable farrier is essential. He has a great basis of education, a beautiful nature, and a solid start to his competition career which makes him a wonderful candidate for an ambitious rider to continue on with and enjoy success with. He is a versatile mount that is best suited to an intermediate + rider. Home is more important than price, and Ollie’s owners are really looking for a home where he can be loved, and spoilt!
