Bos is a 16.2 approx TB 8yo gelding with a seriously exciting future as an elite performance horse ahead of him!  Type Bos is a very attractive type with good conformation. He is pretty enough to stand out in the show ring but talented enough to succeed in any of the olympic disciplines.    Prior Experience   Bos was retrained after racing by a professional retainer where he established a basic education. He was then purchased and is currently owned by a competent beginner rider who has been riding him since. He is very well loved, and this is an extremely difficult decision for his young rider but he is ultimately too green, and too much for her at this stage in her riding career. He really needs a rider to continue his education and help him reach his potential and she really needs a schoolmaster type to learn from for now.   Temperament We have found Bos to need consistency and discipline to reassure him. He is extremely talented with big movement and a lot of impulsion and he does need to be kept in line at this stage to ensure he works at his best. We have not found him to be dirty under saddle and he actually hasn’t done anything “naughty” ie. buck/rear/bolt/shy in his 6 weeks of training with us and we brought him back into work after a short break however we do our best to keep him in a connection when riding him so he is mentally and physically engaged and concentrating on his job. He doesn’t tend to be too spooky but can get distracted at times, and does need you to keep his mind on the job at the beginning of the ride. He can be a little impatient on the ground so would benefit rom ground work and a competent handler. He has improved out of sight through his training here with us and we are looking for a home with a rider who can keep him in consistent work over the next few months. He really wants to do the right thing and we think with the right rider, he will absolutely excel.   Paces  Bos has above average paces for a Thoroughbred. He has a lot of power with good activity behind in the trot. He also has a lot of jump in the canter. Once he straight and connected he feels awesome, and you can really start to develop some swing and engagement. If he is let be crooked, and/or distracted he can feel a little tight. I can’t wait to see how his paces develop with further training, strength and suppleness.   Dressage Training Rhythm - Bos is fairly forward off the leg and moves off each leg and is starting to develop a secure inside leg to outside rein connection Suppleness - He is becoming more supple and even on both sides every ride, but he does still bend a little better one way than the other.  Contact - Bos is starting to develop a secure feeling in the hand. He doesn’t tend to get too strong or on the forehand and is willing to sit in the contact fairly quietly with a steady light feeling when ridden forward with soft hands.   Rider Suitability  Bos is developing a good basic education and is not far off commencing his career as a competition mount. We would like to see him with a competent rider who has worked with young horses before and is willing to spend the time getting to know him, and producing him with patience and consistency. He requires an  experienced rider or an intermediate rider who is going to work closely with a coach/trainer to ensure he is given all the tools and education to realise his potential as a serious performance horse/allrounder. Although Bos has some quirks, he is well worth a ride for a committed, ambitious rider who is looking to produce a quality horse up the levels.  Located Nyora, VIC.
