For sale on behalf of a friend. Charlie is a 16.2hh 13year old bay gelding by quick star lines. Absolutely devastating sale of this lovely boy due to health reasons, he has been in the same home for the past five years for a novice rider and has never put a foot wrong. Works lovely on the flat and will produce a good test. He evented with previous owner BE100 but is more suited to show jumping as he is not fast enough on the cross country. Has BSJA with wins up to 1m05 with novice rider, 100 % genuine will go off any stride. His technique over a fence is outstanding, and he schools at home over 1m25 with ease but will happily pop round a 2ft6 course.
Charlie is 100% safe sane and sensible and will adapt to any rider. Would be suited to a mother daughter type share, rider coming off of ponies and wanting to learn the ropes show jumping. He happily plods round the roads and fields with a novice rider but will step up if you want more. He has never hunted but i have no doubt that he would excell at this. He is absolutely perfect to handle both at home and shows, stands on a box all day. Hacks alone or in company, boxes in trailer or lorry and good to shoe.
The only down points this boy has is that he has a couple of sarcoids which have never caused a problem and he needs sedating to clip. We rug him properly to avoid this as he is genuinely scared so we see no point him putting him through this. Both of these are reflected in his price.
Open to any vet, trainer etc. Please feel free to share.
