Dutch WB by Rhodium out of a Dutchman mare.
15 years old registered as 17.1hh.
Tony is a big, strong and bold eventer. He is an absolute freak of nature and an elite athlete.
He has competed up to 120 sj, 3* eventing (old 2*) and grade 1 pony club.
He has competed in both Queensland and Victoria as I bought him site unseen from up there. Tony is an ideal young riders horse however only experienced and CONFIDENT riders need apply, he is big and very in your face/loves attention.
He is sound, healthy and extremely fit.
Tony is very talented, he is BOLD, confident, honest and looks after his rider both in showjumping and CrossCountry. He is really straight forward to ride jumping, can get strong but in a keen way. Easily sorted with bitting him up, currently in a universal and that's enough to half halt when needed. I am on the weaker side though as I know his past owners had him in a snaffle.
He needs some work on the flat. The buttons are in there he just needs some tuning up regarding a contact. I have mainly showjumped him so I can't say it's been a major focus...
He hasn’t got a nasty bone in him and in the 2.5 years I’ve had him he’s never EVER dumped me or even thought about it. He saves your ass so much and is never nasty when you get left behind or drop the reins when he takes a flier.
You can walk, trot, canter and gallop him on the buckle. He has also been ridden on roads with no issues. He can sometimes be girthy, he needs to be stepped out before getting on but hasnt shown any form of dirt undersaddle

There are more I just can’t remember them 😬
Then there are all his qld results which you can check on the EA search. He won Qld prelim horse of the year back in 2013? He has placings up to old 2*.
He has an extremely big personality. He is so loving and overly affectionate, he adores his human and deserves to be someone’s number one again.
Only for sale as I am completely burnt out and needing a break from hardcore competition horses. I'm currently focusing on my career and young horses and this guy deserves to be in the spotlight again.
He requires an experienced rider due to his size and his ability, he is very athletic over a fence and therefore needs a rider that can independently balance themselves. He will save you and has always saved me however there is a lot of power that you need to be able to balance over.
I’m very honest with this sale as it’s extremely hard for me. He is seriously 1 in a million and very VERY special to me as he has been the first horse that my dreams have been put onto... They have just unfortunately changed.
