I have had so much fun with this lad in the 4 years I’ve owned him. Olly is 16.2hh, 15 yrs old and raced until he was 5. He is registered ROR, racing name Oh Golly Gosh.
We have competed at dressage, ODEs, XC and SJ and rarely out of the placings. Recently we have discovered his forte with dressage and started competing at elementary level this Summer and won both times with 71%/73%. He has a nice, trainable attitude. I competed him BD on a ticket in September and he scored 71.42% at Novice so would easily affiliate.
He does enjoy his jumping but is not massively scopey so needs a confident, relaxed rider to encourage him. I find that frequent outings help with consistency and his confidence. We won our last XC which was an Eland Lodge qualifier at 80cm.
He is great on the roads, and hacks alone and in company. Occasionally when he’s alone he can try and nap but this is easily managed.
Good to catch/clip/shoe/load and travel. He really is lovely to have around, but he is NOT a novice horse. I say this because in the moments of excitability he does bounce around a bit, and the best remedy is to ride through it so you must be confident and competent.
I am going to 110% honest about this horse because he is so special, so please feel free to ask any questions. Open to vet. Based on Anglesey. Videos available.
