Exceptional Interschool or young riders horse
16.1hh Irish Sport Horse, KD Dastan (Sire: Thady’s Touch, who has King of Diamonds in bloodlines. Dam: Eva) 9 years old
Sad sale of a much loved horse due to rider completing year 12.
KD Dastan is an ideal interschools mount or competitive young rider horse. He has been trained correctly in an uphill manner off the seat and the leg by professional dressage coaches. Elementary laterals confidently established. Confidently competing Preliminary/Novice and training elementary and some medium movements. Has an eye catching appearance, with good confirmation that gives great presence in the show ring or dressage arena. Covers ground nicely, particularly in the walk which scores highly in tests.
Dastan is a bold jumper, has been competing 105cm and was preparing to step out at 115cm this season. Has trained up to 140cm. A compactly built horse, he turns well and covers ground easily, making him an ideal jump off horse. Has been ridden and competed exclusively by a junior from 2018-present. Dastan has been cross country schooling with his current rider, schooling 105cm combinations and moving boldly through water and over terrain. He has a powerful canter which covers ground with ease. Has not been competed cross country as it was not the focus of his current rider.
Has lived in livery and on a farm with livestock. Hacks out with his paddock buddy (past cows, alpacas, dogs etc). Easy to catch, shoe, float and maintains condition well. Has been yarded and stabled at competitions without problems and ties up in cross ties, at a single point and stands at the float all day at competitions. Respectful on the ground and easy to handle.
Dastan is an extremely hard-working horse; with a great work ethic he will try extremely hard no matter what you ask. He is extremely intelligent and learns quickly. He has a scopey jump and will always try to get his rider out of trouble. Has taken rider from competing 80cm to confidently competing 105cm and schooling 115+. Has a beautiful personality that has made him a much-loved member of the family, a real sook for treats and pats. Very sad sale and the right home is paramount.
Dastan is currently in a full clip, with dental work, vaccinations and worming all up to date.
He is in full work and ready to go.
