Outstanding Showjumping Prospect
Cashmere Iroquois (race name Sprigger) is a 6 year old, 17hh OTTB gelding. Iroquois retired in November 2022. He spelled with us after retiring and then began his retraining.
Iroquois shows a lot of promise in showjumping. He has great scope and excellent technique.
Since beginning his retraining a year ago, apart from regular flat work at home, he has been taken to weekly showjumping sessions with high level coaches. He has attended clinics, training days and SJ competitions. He is now at the stage where he understands his new job and goes around a jump course quietly. Regular outings towards the end of this season have made him calm and reliable at shows.
Iroquois is a very light, tall and slim built. He has powerful hindquarters and clears jumps with room to spare. We predict a very successful showjumping career in the bigger heights. With a capable rider and ongoing training, Iroquois will go far. He has jumped up to 90cm in training and has regularly competed up to 70cm.
When Iroquois retired, he received all the best care with us, ie regular dental treatment, chiropractic work, attention to gut health and profilactic ulcer treatment.
Iroquois was used as a school horse in our riding school and was ridden by a number of teenage beginners. Having said that, this occured in the controlled environment of a fully enclosed arena and we would not recommend Iroquois as a beginner horse. He would however suit a confident intermediate rider under the guidance of a good coach.
Iroquois walks himself on the float, stands for the farrier, is easy to worm, rug and catch.
Iroquois is a reluctant sale, due to his beauty and talent but unfortunately we cannot keep all of our retrainers. He will only go to the best of homes and someone who will further his showjumping career. $4500
