Bally AKA “Balenciaga” is a really lovely 17hh 10yo approx Thoroughbred gelding. He is by Barely a moment. Bally is a super eye-catching type, with stunning good looks, dark colouring and a very elegant, athletic build. He is naturally uphill with a pretty outline when working in a frame. He is a very sweet, well educated gelding with a solid foundation of training. He has competed extensively in showing with great success and many wins and placings at top shows. His performance card results can be provided upon request. We have hacked him out down the road and he has excellent ground manners. He has been very correctly produced as a show horse, and although the focus has been showing, he shows great promise for dressage and would do really well in the EA OTTTB dressage classed at Boneo etc. Temperament We have found Bally to have an exceptional temperament. He is very easy to handle on the ground, and equally impressive under saddle. He has been very sensible in the paddock for turn out, but also easy-going in the stable/day yards. He has not done a single naughty thing under saddle or on the ground, no spooking or dirt at all. He doesn’t tend to be spooky, and has been exposed to a lot of busy farm activity and was noticeably unaffected. He thrives on routine, and can be a fussy eater at times but eats well once he is settled into a diet he likes. When showing in Western Australia, he was known for his incredible temperament and had a very good reputation. He is absolutely delightful to have around and we cannot praise her behaviour and temperament any more highly. He is an absolute sweetheart and deserves a rider who will love him and spoil him rotten! Paces Bally has3 lovely paces with a good active walk with clear over-track, an expressive yet regular, rhythmic trot and beautiful, balanced, scopey and adjustable canter. He has a very good ground cover, and is super comfortable to sit on in trot and canter. Dressage Training Rhythm - Bally is a lovely balance of forward moving but not too hot or sensitive. He maintains a super consistent rhythm and is quite happy to tick along in whatever rhythm you set, and won’t speed off when you soften the reins. Suppleness & Contact - Bally holds a very steady neck position outline, and is consistently in a great frame. He can fidget a little with the bit at times when your warming up but once you have him forward he settles right into the contact and feels amazing. Bally is very supple over the back, always willing to stretch and reach down. Laterally, he is supple, he bends around both inside legs, and understands the concept of inside leg to outside rein connection. Impulsion & Straightness - Bally understands half-halts and will add more energy when asked, and responds well to your seat. He could be a little straighter and more connected at times to develop a higher level of engagement and “push”, but this will come with further dressage specific training. He has a good natural swing in his paces, and as he gets stronger and more dressage focused training, he feels like he would have the talent to progress up the dressage levels through to elementary/medium and possibly beyond. Rider Suitability Bally presents a rare opportunity to secure a beautiful, genuine, educated mount with huge amounts of success already and a big bright future ahead. With his fantastic temperament, he would be an asset to a rider looking for a competitive, yet safe showing and dressage mount. He is extremely willing and trainable, and tries really hard and would be suited to an intermediate + rider (only really due to his large size. Bally is a very, very special horse, and we know everybody who rides him will enjoy the ride as he is comfortable and straight forward. The wonderful feeling he gives you combined with his exceptional good looks, and sweet personality certainly make him an asset for an ambitious rider looking for a best friend who can WIN at the most prestigious shows, but also stand out in the dressage ring. Located Nyora, VIC.
