Billy is a 14yo 15,3hh chestnut Gelding by Florencio/Florestan x Jazz. He may be on the smaller side but he is certainly Mighty! Billy has 3 huge uphill paces, you will certainly feel it in your back and stomach from riding him!! He has solid established movements up to Advanced Medium. He is training PSG at home and has done two advanced tests and is eligible for PSG. He has done a PSG H/C with his owner.
The sale of Billy is heart breaking for his owner; therefore he has now come to me to be sold as they just can’t bring themselves to do it. This is a totally genuine sale of this incredibly willing and talented horse, his owner has stopped riding due to some health issues and also to concentrate on her business. I have been riding and competing Billy for the last year and loved it, sadly it has been a little stop – start due to COVID.
He is also eligible to ride in the lower classes with a less experienced rider, based on just Billy’s record he can compete Elementary Silver and work up the levels. He would be an ideal juniors horse or the step up to coming off ponies.
Billy is incredibly low mileage, he has been brought on slowly and sympathetically and has many more years left in him. Despite his size he has a great presence and swing in the arena attracting attention wherever he goes and the judges love him.
Billy has always been placed at Regionals, Area Festivals and has two National titles to his name at Elementary and Medium. It would be fantastic to find him a capable and confident rider to further his successful competitive career. Billy knows his job, he is not spooky or silly – he will go in the arena and get on with it.
All of his scores and highlights are detailed in the results section. Billy and his owner have had an amazing journey together 8 years, the stuff that dreams are made of and now it is time for Billy to give that to someone else. The right 5 star home is paramount for Billy.
