Sire - Hard Spun (USA)
Dam - Crystal Snip
I have owned Russell (Crystal Web) a year now. Russell raced in Australia and Hong Kong in his earlier days. I’ve taken him to two ag shows for his led thoroughbred class and led hack class, he will need more experience being out and about but in saying that he was much more calm at his second outing than his first. I love this horse to bits but I realistically can’t have two horses in full work and compete a young horse while also having to working myself. In the year I have owned Russell i’ve given him a great basic education, I am now training him to do walk to canter transitions. Russell can happily be ridden in a double bridle but is also great in a snaffle bit. He is primarily voice trained. Russell has a beautiful expressive trot if you know how to get him moving properly. He is great to float, he self loads and is happy to travel alone and with other horses.
Russell’s previous owner had him stabled at night and I have him yarded so he is comfortable with either. He doesn’t buck, rear or bite and is pretty quiet if he knows you, he has been known to shy at silly things in a new environment but rarely when you are on him. Russell is a fairly quite horse but not for beginners as he can get a little quick in the canter if you have too much leg on.
