Pavie is a talented, uncomplicated horse with a super “want-to-please” attitude and beautiful ground manners.
He has had superb dressage schooling from the beginning. Firstly with Kim Voss (former Grand Prix dressage rider) and then with Jo Crawford (Grand Prix dressage rider/coach). He has a soft snaffle mouth, is quick to learn and has lovely movement – rides much bigger than his size.
Dressage to L3, training L4, with some L5 movements because he finds them fun! He finds lateral work very easy, especially half pass. He has 3 balanced paces, a lovely rhythmical canter and a beautiful medium trot. He is a fast learner and kind teacher who really does enjoy his work.
Pavie is being sold as a Dressage horse but has been to PC for 3 seasons and enjoys jumping (xc and sj). He has had some SH lessons with Des Lowe and SJ with Jono Smith and both rate his jump ability and potential.
Quiet enough for an adult rider returning to riding and talented enough for a young rider to take up the grades. Beginners as well as experienced dressage riders have ridden him. He adapts to rider abilities.
Pavie is extremely lovable. He really forms a bond with his rider, is always up for a cuddle and will trot up to you in the paddock to say hi and give kisses.
We have had him for 4 years and it is very hard to let this lovely horse go, only selling as rider has committed to postgraduate studies at university.
We are looking for a kind, knowledgeable home. Ideally he would go a competitive rider who will enjoy his talents. He is a very special horse and he means a lot to us.
Good for farrier and dentist, to truck and float (prefers angle loader). Great in all environments: roads, the beach or out competing as nothing really phases him.
