CHESTER - QH GELDING
LOT NUMBER: 17
HEIGHT 14.3h (NOT MEASURED)
DESCRIPTION (as provided by vendor)
Chester is beautifully natured, quick to learn and has exceptional movement.
He is lovely to handle in every way, easy to float/wash/shoe/stable etc, will catch you in the paddock and tie up all day. He has no dirt/bite/kick etc and is quiet enough for the kids to lead, groom and generally fuss over. He is a striking horse that turns heads wherever he goes with his huge floating trot and rocking horse canter. He has some serious dressage buttons to push and collects beautifully. He is an easy keeper, gets on beautifully with other horses and does not have separation anxiety when taken away from his paddock mates.
Chester has talent to burn and is best suited to a PC/ARC/eventing/dressage home where he will make someone an absolute cracker of a mount. Alternatively a trail riding mount for an experienced rider. His early life was as a campdrafter, followed by a stint in a trail riding centre and then retraining in dressage/eventing where he was showing great promise – jumping up to 90cm comfortably and starting laterals. He has attended lessons/done flatwork/low level cattle work and riding around the farm since I have owned him. He has been exposed to a multitude of noisy farm objects –motorbikes/ tractors /mowers etc which do not bother him.
Chester is best suited to a confident teenage/adult rider as he can get nervous under saddle and on the trails. No problems for a competent rider who can push him through this - but not a good fit for a nervous or beginner rider, or a child until he is back in full work. This is vastly improved when he is in full work.
Chester is sound and up to date with shoes/worming/teeth, has had recent chiropractic work and acupuncture, is in great condition and ready to go on with. He has no known injuries or vices - he has a slightly turned in front near foot (see photo) which he has had since birth - but this not affect him. His reserve will be competitive given he is in light work. For sale as current rider is not utilizing his potential and does not have the time or experience to bring him back into full work.
