A super competitive and super safe horse for Junior Rider, Young Rider, Amateur or Pro-am. He is very uncomplicated and has never stopped for us or previous families who have had him. Astek Napoleon (Froggy) would suit a rider wanting to step up through these heights and looking for both a competitive mount and a very safe ride.
Froggy knows his job inside out and loves it. He is super level headed, an athletic jumper and a very forgiving horse. He totally helps out his rider and will jump from an awkward spot etc. No hesitation letting our daughter step up to these heights on this horse - he has kept her super safe. He takes you to the jump but listens up and is responsive. Ridden in a snaffle.
This guy is absolutely a one in a million horse. He has been so reliable and dependable for us but rider has had a change of plan to head to university.
He is so honest and gives it his all as the videos show. He has jumped to Premier Young Rider heights previously but in this 1st season together his rider has been concentrating on Junior Rider and 1.20-1.30m classes.

Great breeding lines.

Out of Distancia.
Distancia is by Distelfink. Froggy was bred by the Astek Stud and John Cottle.
Rider circumstances have meant from ages 10-13 years he was lightly jumped. Vet assessment with X-rays completed in April 2019 and available by agreement. Very clean legs and given his athleticism he has many more seasons in him.

Very easy to have around and a complete gentleman to handle. Paddocks by himself or with others. Loved by the non-horsey family members too! We have had no health or soundness issues with him at all. He is well known in Hawke’s Bay.
The combination of reliability, competitiveness, safety and a level head is very rarely found in 1 horse capable at these heights - this guy really is a find. We just wish we had him 3 seasons ago.
