Bay gelding 11 y.o. 16.2hh, OTT (retired for 6 years).Huntley is a cruisey/fuss free horse with a loving nature and a solid education. He is patient and polite and doesn’t walk all over you. He is easy to catch, self loads on the float and can be tied up at the float for the day and not pull back or dig holes.He is a solid, thickly set TB that holds his weight well and doesn’t get hot on hard feed, he isn’t on any medications, he is vice free and is always shod.Unlike most TB’s, Huntley doesn’t require lunging or working down even after weeks of being in the paddock, you just saddle up and get straight on him. He is used to a busy atmosphere on our farm and is often paddocked with either my sheep/cattle and is extremely tolerant of my dogs and chooks around his feet.He loves being the center of attention and is calm and obedient in the arena and is ridden in a snaffle. He has well established flatwork; leg yields, goes around comfortably in frame and can walk to canter. The best part is that his temperament doesn’t alter from home in the arena to when he is out competing/lessonsHe has a really neat technique jumping and very clean in the front feet, however thrives off the riders’ confidence and can get forward and strong in Sj/xc generally at higher heights (95cm+). He has competed EVA80, PC grade 2/3, showjumping 85cm-1m.
Since owning him (2.5years) we’ve regularly competed/had lessons on a weekly basis, so he is a seasoned campaigner and is ready to continue this with his new owner.
It’s a very hard decision as I absolutely adore his quiet nature and therefore finding the right person is so important. I’m only selling him as I’m focusing on showjumping and unfortunately he isn’t going to take me to 1m+ tracks consistently. He is currently in work (ridden 3-4times a week) and ready to go out and compete with.He is a clever horse that’s willing to learn and I think he would be perfect for someone wanting a reliable/confidence boosting/fuss free horse to take out competing in dressage and/or low level eventing.Vet checks welcomed$6,000Located Camperdown VictoriaPIC- 3CEEF027
