Faramir is an EA registered rising 6yo WBxTB gelding by Glenrose Coventry (Core de la Brieye blood lines) out of TB mare. He is 17hh (not officially measured) modern WB type, very athletic and light on his feet. Faramir is very well handled and has great ground manners, is easy to c/s/f etc. and is up to date with everything. Can be paddocked or stabled, is not bossy or aggressive around other horses. Faramir can stand tied up to the truck all day and doesn’t get bothered by the noisy show environment when out. He loves human attention and is people orientated. Has established three soft paces, leg yield etc. Snaffle mouth. He is in full work and will stay until sold. Currently mastering walk canter transitions and working on flying changes.
Faramir has an exceptional talent for show jumping. Has been competing confidently around 105 classes at Goulburn, Gundagai and Albury show jumping competitions brining home clear rounds. He has unlimited talent and potential to excel at the very top level. He is extremely brave jumper that doesn’t get bothered by the set up, with forward and balanced approach, as well as great feel and shape over the jump, extremely careful. There is no stop in him. Even though jumping is where, I believe, Faramir will become a true superstar, his nice paces and athleticism will allow him to succeed as an eventer or a dressage horse. He is, however, not suitable for showing as has a scar on near hind, that has been investigated by veterinarians and proven to be only cosmetic issue.
Despite being such a superstar, Faramir is a sensitive young horse that can be playful (buck) and strong under the saddle, in particular during busy warm ups. He is not horse shy but can get tense especially when other horses knock the rails. However, he gets better every time. He is forgiving with riders mistakes to an extend and tries hard to please. He will be best suited to an experienced rider with strong seat and soft aids. Faramir will thrive being in full work. This is a very heartbreaking sale, as I believe I won’t be able to get a jumping horse like this again. However, I have to admit that he is becoming too much of a horse for me and I won’t be able to bring him to his full potential at higher classes.
