Wimborne Classic is a classy and talented all rounder with the versatility and quality to compete in the any of the Olympic disciplines in a specialist capacity if desired.
Wimborne Classic has been purposebred by Wimborne Park Stud to be a top level prospect for an ambitous rider. He was given his name Classic, as a reflection of his "classical" good conformation and type. Much of the foundation work both on the ground and under saddle has been done and he is now ready to go to his forever home and start his competition career.
Wimborne Classic was allowed to grow and mature in large open paddocks at Wimborne Park Stud, before being broken in as a 4 year old by dual Silver Olympic medalist, Shane Rose at Bimbadeen Park. He has since spent the last 12 months being brought on steadily by 3* eventer Jane Wilcox. Jane has laid a good foundation with his work under saddle including flatwork, hacking out and jumping.
Wimborne Classic has proven himself to be a forward thinking, athletic gelding with 3 excellent paces and a natural talent for jumping.
He is a senisible and friendly horse who likes to be with people and is trainable and enjoys his work.
He is easy to catch and has impeccable ground manners both for everyday grooming and also for the farrier.
He loads both on and off the float calmly and floats very well whilst in transit.
