Contentin Des Roques

Contentin Des Roques

Freshly arrived from Europe with excellent experience, including a 1.40m win shortly before import. Superb jumper with a tidy front-end & a super careful back-end. Scope to jump the 1.50m classes & a great first FEI horse for young riders or professionals. Very low on blood and a naturally quiet, kick-on, loose-ring-snaffle type of ride. Jumps around the first time, comes out ready to work even after time off, and could even double in the Medals. Delightful to have in the barn & a real pleasure to show. Kind, generous & brimming with the personality of a big, red, overgrown puppy dog.
