Super Horse with Loads of Talent
6 years old.
Dressage, Eventing, Farm Hack, Pleasure Horse, Show Jumping, Showing.
62.99 Inches | 160 Centimeters | 15.3 Hands
Northland, New Zealand
Genuine reason for sale:
Dark bay TB gelding by Great Britain out of Optic, 6yrs, 160cm (15.3hh). A very trainable type and has a good brain.
Super type for dressage - athletic, lovely free moving horse. Three good paces, very eye catching, and a straight forward ride. Has always performed well and been very consistent in the dressage phase of Eventing.
I have owned Basil since a 3yr old and have brought him on as an eventer. Unfortunately as a combination we haven’t quite ‘clicked’ in this discipline (his jumping performance hasn't quite matched my ambitions), hence the reason for sale.
He is very good to hack out alone or in company, good to open gates etc., and loves exploring the farm.
Good to shoe, truck, clip etc. A nice horse to have around, and is very personable. Is aware of his surroundings so can be a little bit spooky, and for this reason wouldn’t be suitable for a complete beginner.
Ideally he would go to a competitive dressage home to make the most of his talent in this area, however could still be a good happy hacker or low level jumper/eventer.
All the basics have been established, and now waiting for someone to begin a new partnership with.
