Max - 6yo, 16hh Gelding (Savabeel x Saddlers Wells mare).
Max is a gorgeous young horse who has the potential to excel in any discipline.
Max has tonnes of scope, is very adjustable and is incredibly honest (point-and-shoot type who will jump from any spot). I am not an overly confident jumper, but feel totally safe cantering down to any jump on him.
He competed in some 5yo classes (1.10-1.20m) last season (including NI Champs and Young Horse Show) and was confidently schooling up to 1.25m at home. Unfortunately Max has had limited starts this season due to work commitments. He evented to CNC95cm as a 4yo (including qualifying for the National Young Event Horse) and Show Hunter to 1m. Max is lovely on the flat, has started lateral work and is a soft snaffle mouth in all phases. While my preference is SJ, he would be suitable for any discipline.
Max would be perfect for a capable and competitive rider who wants a talented young horse to produce through the grades. He wouldn’t need much more mileage before he was ready for the Amateurs or Juniors and I genuinely believe he has the scope to jump Young Riders or Pro-Ams in the future. Alternatively, he could jump the 6yos this season and step up to the 7yos next year. Fit and ready to go out and compete. ESNZ SJ / SH registered until 28 September 2019.
Max is a lovely type with a very sweet and cuddly nature. He is very low maintenance and is good to stable, take to shows, catch, handle, truck, float, shoe, dentist, hack down the road, ride bareback etc. Can be paddocked alone or in a herd. Also fine to ride after weeks off.
Very regrettable sale. I have owned Max since he was a 3yo and would keep him in a heartbeat if I could; however, sadly work commitments mean that I can no longer give him the time or attention he deserves.
