Super Feature Listing
Homebred born October 2015, 16.1hh bay KWPN gelding (Valentino / Grosvenor xx).
Spud is an incredibly talented guy that will go up the grades in eventing or show jumping with ease.
With only one season under his belt (due to COVID and time commitments), Spud has been a real professional to take out and has been competing up to CCN105 eventing and 1.10m SJ. He was first equal in his first and only 5yo class start at HB Show in October.
Spud goes kindly in a snaffle and you can ride with plenty of leg but is forward thinking enough not to need spurs. He is very smart on the flat, quickly establishing lateral work and changes and has beautiful natural cadence.
He has been extensively hacked over farmland including river riding.
Spud has a tonne of scope over a fence, he is a confident natural jumper and is bold and careful in both SJ and XC. He has movement fo die for and that special “look at me” presence.
Spud is incredibly affectionate and dotes on “his” person. He is good to handle on the ground, clip, shoe, drench etc. and is easy to travel in both a float and truck.
Spud is a seriously talented little horse with a big engine and will suit a confident rider who loves being around their horses. Spud is smart and thrives on a regular routine and all attention given to him.
Rider overcommitted, approved home essential.
