9yo (2011) 16.3hh WB gelding
Sire: Southern Cross Dorado
Dam: Southern Cross Cygnus
Avie is a gorgeous dapple grey gelding looking to find a competitive jumping and/or dressage home. He has a lovely, big jump and is very forgiving of a not perfect distance. He takes you to the jump without being too strong, and really wants to be careful.
He also has 3 lovely paces and has a nice dressage education with shoulder in, travers, simple changes and counter canter. His transitions are always balanced and he presents a lovely picture for the judges.
Due to his owner’s personal circumstances, he has had minimal competition outings. However he has had success at those events he did complete including winning at 95 Eventing and placing at Novice level in Open Dressage. He also has recently competed up to 105 show jumping, and is happily training over 120 show jumping courses at home with plenty of ability to jump bigger tracks in the future.
Avie loves people, has a great work ethic under saddle and has been an absolute pleasure to have in training. He is always at the gate hoping to be ridden, and would thrive in a competitive home. He would suit a range of riders including juniors due to his forgiving nature (though he is a big horse). He would love a home with someone who wants to give him lots of attention!
He is easy to manage at a show, isn’t horse shy, and really tries his hardest for you. However he can be a little looky/spooky initially under saddle in new environments. It is easy to manage and nothing escalates from it, but he does require a rider that is patient and confident enough to give him a pat and keep their leg on as he does seek his confidence from the rider. I am sure that in the right partnership he has the personality and ability to be a top class horse in the future.
Plenty of videos available.
Unfortunately due to continuing Covid lockdowns, Avie’s owner needs to sell.
