17 hand (unmeasured) TB gelding by renown jumping sire Flying Spur.
Rising 10, lightly raced and brought on very correctly.
Bertie rarely comes away without a placing in either dressage or eventing. He is a very elegant, athletic horse with superb confirmation.
He’s just started campaigning at EA 80 cm by Nat Davies with the purpose of selling him and at his first event, Geelong horse trials jumped double clear to finish third. He will easily make 1* this year and there’s no reason he won’t go to the top with the right rider.
Bertie is a very careful jumper with a fantastic back end. He has a bold ground-covering gallop and gives a superb cross country ride with no problem fences.
He is also an excellent dressage horse with three correct paces, a great over-track at the walk, an elegant trot and naturally uphill canter.
His owner is now 60 years old and no longer wants to event. This horse has the potential to go right through the grades with a confident rider. He is a sensitive horse, as many Flying Spur horses are, but once you have his trust, he’ll try his heart out.
A real smooch on the ground. Excellent to do anything with.
Priced to sell at $10k. Competing at Tonimbuk this weekend. The longer he is campaigned, the higher the price.
