Big scopey schoolmaster with heart of gold and a huge jr/am show record, currently going 1.10m Adults with an intermediate rider and has a long history of Ch/AA & Low Jr/AO Jumper success. Doesn’t mind being the brave one and always jumps if it’s safe to do so. Great to teach on and even steps in as a Big Eq practice horse. Fun puppy dog personality, great manners, likes trail rides & cross country jumps. Big yet quick-footed and jumps as well as ever, can pack the lower heights or go 1.20m for the more educated. Would be superb on the masters tour!
