Approx 16.1hh 8yo TB gelding experiences and consistent at 2*(old 1*) and qualified and ready for 3*.
Nelson is an absolute crowd favourite - he has a beautiful nature and is always willing to please. He is a fantastic athletic type with 3 very correct rhythmical paces and super active hind leg. He is straightforward on the flat and scores consistently well in the mid-high 60%s with plenty of room for bigger marks. He has a brilliant work ethic and a great trainable brain.
He is a bold, honest and careful jumper and would make an ideal horse for a confident ambitious rider looking for their next competitive mount to go up the grades with. He is brilliant fun xc, very adjustable and honest. He is quick on his feet and happy to jump from anywhere.
Good to catch, clip, shoe etc. Happy to hack out alone or in company, been swimming at the river etc. Sound, in full work and up to date with all worming/vacs. Nelson has a heart of gold, wonderful work ethic and very affectionate on the ground, just wants to be your best friend. He can be a little noise sensitive in busy warm ups but remains rideable and always settles and works well in the ring. As such he would not suit nervous/beginner riders and would prefer him to go to a competitive home where he can continue to fulfil his potential.
