Outstanding Junior Event Horse
16.2, 11 year old TB gelding by Dan Road.
HOME IS VERY MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE PRICE WHICH WILL BE ADJUSTED ACCORDINGLY!
A stunning, complete gentleman to ride, with manners to burn on the ground. Spy has fabulous paces, and a super jump, able to help his rider out with confidence in his own ability. He is a re-trained racehorse, having travelled the globe, so has no trouble with cross country times, with his easy, but controllable gallop!
He spent 2016 with a teenager in the UK, with amazing results in very competitive British Eventing classes, competing against established Olympic riders! He won two Open Novice events (see Horse and Hound report in images); with no less than 9 top 10 placings from 14 runs! A competitive record which speaks for itself!
However, just as importantly for a young rider (and their parents!), he is a horse who loves to be part of the family! He is so easy and willing to hack out, on his own and in company, in open spaces and on the lanes.
His amazing temperament and talent meant that not only did he have a fabulous eventing season, but he also represented his Pony Club Branch, winning the Area Dressage by more than 5%, and taking part in a Pas de Deux at a prestigious County show.
Since returning to NZ, Spy has gained the below results on the NZ eventing circuit;
Te Rapa HT CNC1*1st Place
Kihikihi HT CIC1* 3rd Place
Matamata CNC1* 2nd Place
Springbush HT CIC1* 1st Place
Horses like this very rarely come on the market, and Spy will provide a talented young rider a fantastic opportunity to progress their eventing career, whilst becoming their best friend!
