Teddy is a 16h2 black, Dutch Warmblood, 8 year old gelding by Ustinov out of an It's The Business Mare.
He is a real character and is great fun to ride, but he is not a novice ride as he can try to push boundaries if he thinks he can. I am looking for a confident rider who is able to really let him reach his potential. He moves beautifully and has trained in lateral work. He has a huge, bold jump and has gone to many dressage clinics where I am told he has potential to be successful in BD, but I am more interested in where he could go BE or BSJA. He has been out to a few cross country and showjumping clinics as well as dressage and has been brilliant at all of them. However, unfortunately he is completely wasted with me as I have a baby and am starting a business. He is homebred and is the best horse I have had by far, but I have realised that something has to give and I just can't give him the time and opportunity that he deserves. He is a really exciting prospect and is ready to get out there and see what he can do!!
Teddy is lovely to handle and is very friendly. He loves a bit of TLC. He is fantastic to hack out alone or in company, he loves roadwork and is great in traffic and is not strong across open fields. I had a great sharer until very recently who adored him but her circumstances changed and unfortunately she could no longer keep going with him.
Financially I am looking for someone to contribute to livery costs and pay for their own competition fees. I have transport and am more than happy to groom at any shows!
