DESCRIPTION (as provided by vendor) Launch Time. 16hh 7yr old Black / Brown TB Gelding By Lucas Cranach. ⭐ Serious Star Horse ⭐ Exceptional Canter ⭐ Very Bold Jump For sale as a result of owners dissolving partnership. and covid 19 restrictions. Joe has retired 100% sound from his racing career. As he was only stared as a late 3yrs old and didn't race until he was 4 he is now looking to move onto his next equestrian discipline. Joe is a very athletic horse with the ability to take you to the top levels! He loves to work and thrives on pleasing you. He is suitable to a rider who is looking for there next top eventing project! He takes his race name Launch Time quite seriously and has incredible scope and a very bold jump with very good technique both infront and behind! Schooling and jumping up to 1m on the arena through his racing career even at peek fitness! Joe has never stopped at a fence and never hesitated with the change of a jump, even including extra poles, dazzle boards, markers etc. Joe has good quality basic dressage education as he was extensively schooled on the flat and jumping during his racing career! In a frame he is very elegant with good movement that is naturally very uphill and very forward thinking! We think he will come to hand quickly with a rider experienced in bringing on horse and who has the time to get the best out of him and create that super bond for top level competition!! Joe has a sweet nature on the ground and is super easy to lead, saddle, self loads onto the float and by far the farriers favourite horse to shoe! Also kept up to date with the dentist! As well as regularly drenched. last drenched in July 2021. Throughout Joe's racing career he has had miles in the float and truck and doesn't move!! Joe has also been out on numerous bush rides in company and also solo! Having these outings also insures that he not only cross-ties but he can tie to the float/truck for hours on end! Joe has great Paddock manners and has shared paddocks with young to old horses and has never been seen ruin his own or others rugs!! We can not express enough how talented this lovely horse will be in the right hands this is why we believe that he has the makings of a genuine performance horse and would not suit weekend warriors and pleasure riding. As he only recently retired from racing in June 2021 and is currently in light work letting down nicely.
