ALBIE (ATHOS 2011) - Thoroughbred Gelding
**ANDREW WILSON & CO ONLINE AUCTION MARCH 25th-26th**
LOT NUMBER: 4
HEIGHT (Approx) 16h
DESCRIPTION (as provided by vendor) Excellent show jumping or eventing prospect, a lovely boy to ride. Has attended many show jump outings and cross country, competed in derby days. Has competed 50-75 successfully with room to go higher, hasn’t been schooled higher only due to being trained for an intermediate jumper rider. He will be tried over higher heights this week. This boy has the ability and scope to go up the grades very quickly. No nasties at all, but can be unsure of himself in warmups. He’s happier waiting on the edge, then goes into his ring like a schoolmaster. No spook buck bolt rear etc, never fizzy or hot. Can be quite lazy at home. Only for sale due to owner not clicking with him and not being the right rider for him, he deserves to be a good home that will use his talents. He can be a grumpy grandpa, or a chestnut mare hidden in a geldings body, like a cat, pat me, nope changed my mind! He can bluff people by lifting his back legs, he has never kicked but this is a quirk that must be known. Self loads and floats amazing, up to date with dentist, ulcer treated with omoguard, currently fully shod. Ties up well. Owner wishes to stay in contact with this very special horse, he only deserves the best. Has been with a trainer for the last few weeks, mainly for jump education, flatwork is coming along.
