We all know that a horse and rider don’t go anywhere together without good chemistry. This 16. 3 hh, 11 y/o, gelding, is a gentle soul and he thrives on having a good bond with his rider. He is a big horse and can carry a man but equally he will look after a lightweight lady.
In 2019 he cemented himself as one of the top event horses in Australia placing in consecutive starts and creating an enviable track record. In his last start in Australia, at the Melbourne International Three-Day Event at CCI 4 star (advanced level) with his Jockey Andrew Cooper, he placed 3rd.
He was short listed for the Trans-Tasman team to travel to NZ in May 2019.
Prior to his eventing career, he began life as a show jumper and was destined for greatness. Bred in NZ, he is by NGAHIWI ONE EYE, and was sold to Australia early on as a show jumper. Spotted by an event rider, he changed careers and began a rapid rise to top level eventing.
This season, in NZ, his performance is consistently solid, and with a renewed zest, he has bonded with and trusts implicitly his new rider. He is ready now to shine in the discipline of his next rider’s choice. Aside from his incredibly successful Eventing and Show Jumping career, he is a beautiful hunter and always admired by everyone in the field. He can be relied upon to gain big dressage scores with his lovely rhythm and knowledge of different movements. This combined with a quiet mind, means his dressage is performed well, and easily. He is held in high regard by his international dressage trainers who both agree he would not be out of place competing in pure dressage. This season, when show jumping, he consistently did not come close to touching a rail, and he has shown strength and boldness in the cross country.
This gorgeous gentleman is highly talented in all disciplines. He is a pleasure to own, perfect to handle and manage in every way, and he gives his all 100% of the time.
Offered here is an incredible opportunity for an aspiring rider reaching for the moon but not wishing to pay moonbeams (although be mindful that a healthy budget will be required) to be safely out and about, winning on a horse that can do it all brilliantly and at any level. He will be sold as his owner is due to base overseas. The priority here is not to recoup his full purchase price but to find a rider who will treasure him and offer him a 5* home where, given the right bond formed, he will prove himself to be an invaluable horse of a lifetime.
