King Leonidas is a 13yo Bay TB Gelding, 16.1hh by Spartacus out of Glint of Gold. Leo has been an awesome Event horse competing to pre Novice (105cm) horse trials. Leo would be confident to step up to 2* with the right rider.

He is a brave, confident horse with no hang ups. He’s a shoot and point jumper and is very smart on the flat with 3 super paces – lovely trot and big powerful canter. He is easy to ride and is a very handsome ‘look at me’ horse. Leo has never had a stop in Show Jumping or Cross Country.

Leo is great to hack out on the road etc. He loves his work and never shirks a ride. He’s a good doer (loves his food!), is great to catch, shoe, truck, float, clip etc and has a lovely nature. Leo is a genuine horse looking for another kind, confident, competitive rider to continue eventing as this is his forte.

Leo had 3 weeks off after travelling to Cromwell to NZPCA Eventing Champs and is now back into full work ready for his new rider. He has always had lots of variety and is not schooled in an arena 7 days a week!

Leo has loads of great results to his name – including NZPCA Champs 2nd Dressage DC level April 2021, WAPC DC Trophy for 2020/2021, Kihikihi HT April 2021 3rd overall (by 0. 3of a penalty).

Please contact us if you would like videos, more photos or a viewing. We are based in rural Ngaruawhia.

It’s often said, but the home is definitely more important than the price – this is a heart breaking sale as Leo has been family for 3.5 years. His rider has chosen to concentrate on and compete one horse this season and Leo is sadly the one to go.
