Your Next Super Star
10-year-old 16hh Standardbred gelding.
Charlie is a genuine all-rounder showing potential in every field he has been exposed to, an honest gentleman he is an easy to handle horse on the ground and under saddle. Fantastic to shoe, farrier, worm, float and thrives on doing any kind of groundwork, Charlie is very gentle with everyone he comes across regardless of age or gender. I have put countless hours of Warwick Schiller type groundwork into him and he has adored every minute of it.
He is a true try to please horse and this shows both in hand and under saddle, perfect to take out and about with other horses or on his own as well as being great in traffic. He has been backed down roads, through forests, at the beach, and to local arenas without fuss or bother.
With movement like a warmblood, Charlie will do exceptionally well in the ring, already very well-schooled at a trot and a walk, his canter while established needs someone who is more confident. A gem at shows even when other horses get loose, he is also perfect to plait, great to clip and content to stand at the float unsupervised while you nip away to get something from the food truck. He has been ridden at four shows and out of those four, he came home with a champion ribbon twice and always does well in his mannered classes due to his impeccable behaviour. He has been taken to several in-hand shows and retains the same well behaved attitude he displays at home, pops over jumps easily and sensibly, Charlie would suit a confident teenager/adult who wants a horse that has the basic work already done and wants to start competing. I believe he will excel at any discipline he is asked to perform in and shows a love of doing pole work.
Charlie is not a beginner’s horse and requires a confident competent rider to further his education.
