“Figaro VIII”
17hh, 2010, KWPN, black gelding for sale.
“Super Dave” is a stunning horse and catches eyes everywhere he goes! He is very well bred too (Quality Time X Karandasj). Incredibly easy to handle on the ground and loves all attention. You will not find a horse sweeter than Dave! He is up to date on vaccinations, teeth and physio.
He was professionally backed and correctly produced over the years. Due to being owned by a disabled rider since he was backed, he has low mileage in the ring for his age. He is beautiful to ride on the flat and does a very good dressage test. Currently schooling at Novice level with plenty of potential to go further. He has a naturally rhythmical walk, a big flowing trot and plenty of power in the canter. Although he is bred to jump, he would also do pure dressage. Very soft and flexible to ride. Not strong at all and has always been snaffle mouthed. Hacks alone or in company. Never spooky around cars or bikes. More likely to look at a rock than care about the roads! He has also done showing, flat hunting and sponsored rides. He has jumped some cross country fences/steps, but he has not had much experience with this so far.
Fantastic technique over fences and always gives it lots of room. He qualified for second rounds at 1.05m, Disco and BN, but due to lockdown these were cancelled. He has jumped up to newcomers and was jumping 1.30s at home with a professional rider. Whilst he is a talented jumper, he is not a novice ride and needs competent rider to give him more confidence and experience in the ring. There is not a bad bone in his body and he always try’s his best for you!
Incredibly sad sale of a much loved horse. He has been with me for 5yrs now, which is his entire ridden career. I know his full history etc. No under 16s or those who haven’t ridden a competition horse before please.
