Ready to go on with
Gilly is a 16.2hh, 9-year-old warmblood gelding that we purchased as a green 5-year-old. Gilly was bred to jump and has Silveneer, Allure and Graf Laundau bloodlines. He has been ridden by my then 11-year-old daughter and competed by a competent 16-year-old up to 1.15m. Gilly is now ready to go on with. He has been to jump cub days and is not fazed by a busy warm up arena, loud speakers or atmosphere. He has attended shows and is well travelled.
Even though Gilly was bred to jump, I believe that his true talent is as a dressage prospect. He has only competed in one dressage test some 18 months ago and scored a respectable 62% with a nervous jockey on board. His work has improved since then. He is great out on trails and has recently been to the beach, he took a little while to take to it but overcame his fear and had a great time.
Gilly is not matey and is able to be travelled by himself. He will tie up all day and does not require consistent riding. He is barefoot and low maintenance. Gilly has not had a lame day in the time that we have owned him and is a very tough, stoic horse. He is life registered with EQ.
Gilly has a lovely forward, ground covering, uphill canter and is naturally balanced. Gilly is responsive to rider aides, is forward moving in his upward and downward transitions and has begun flying changes. He is a powerfully built horse and carries himself well. He is very good on his feet, rarely tripping or stumbling.
Gilly does not have any nasty traits but requires a rider with experience to bring out his best. I am a 51 year old ‘effective but not pretty’ rider and am confidant riding him at home by myself. He is a fun horse to ride with paces that put a smile on your face. My 16-year-old daughter works him on the ground and in the saddle whilst unsupervised. He is highly intelligent and listens to what is being asked of him.
Gilly is offered for sale to a knowledgeable competition home only. He is for sale due to no fault of his own but rather due to the fact that he and his rider do not ‘click’ and he is too good for me to have as a riding horse. Video footage available on request.
Price is negotiable.
