BEN £12000

16.3hh piebald KWPN gelding 8 yrs by Athos R X Elcaro

Fantastic schoolmaster, top end RC horse, grass roots eventer, would make classy hunter.
Ben has been in the same home for the past four years and is sadly for sale as his owner has recently had a new baby, for the past year he has been on loan to a novice lady locally, who has got all her confidence from him and now wishes to move up a level to a sportier model. His owner is not in the position to take him back due to lack of time with young family  and therefore he must be sold. 

He has been competing BS and jumped up to newcomers, he isn’t a top level show jumper as will have the odd pole, but is incredibly genuine and straightforward to ride, helping his rider out and tries his best to please. He is a fantastic amateur horse, lots of fun to jump giving a real quality feel while remaining steady and level to a fence. He has been to many stay away shows and big shows, being placed at Hickstead last summer. Big, exciting, atmospheres don’t bother him and he remains sane and sensible. We feel he would be better suited to someone who wants to go eventing as he loves cross country, is as brave as you could wish for and does a very good dressage test. He hasn’t hunted but as he’s so sober he would be class, you would certainly love to come down to a big hedge on him. To ride on the flat Ben is very well schooled with all changes and lateral work established, he is a big horse but not a huge ride and easily managed by a small lady rider. He isn’t strong or silly and certainly not a sharp, spooky type, he is a Rolls Royce ride out hacking and goes out happily alone or in company, excellent in traffic and you can even lead a small pony and child from him. He is a very friendly chap both in and out the stable, brilliant to box, shoe, catch, clip etc. He would be the perfect horse for someone wanting to start affiliated competition and have a genuine friend. He really is Mr Uncomplicated and a pleasure to have on the yard, he has a temperament and attitude which is nearly impossible to find.
