Glenayre silver fox
After recently winning his first event of the season, Billy is now for sale to a home that can carry on progressing him in his eventing career
148cm (height certificate) full bred Connemara gelding by top show jump stallion Glenayre Silver Fox, out of Oldrock Beauty. 2006. Numerous winnings and placings including:
6th at the Hickstead dressage Championships mid May 2016.
1st at Borde Hill, end of May 2016 (first event of the season and finishing on his dressage score of 25.3)
Very smart pony, a real eye catcher and always has lots of attention at competitions owing to his huge presence. This pony is an absolute pleasure to own. He is quiet and easy, has the most loving temperament. Follows you in from the field etc. Can leave him tied up by the lorry all day at an event.
Combined training through the winter, top 3 each time, always clear show-jumping. Huge, scopey jump and extremely careful. Will jump off any stride and do whatever he needs to clear the fence.
He has jumped 1.20's in Ireland and hunted before he came to current home 2 years ago where he started his eventing career in 2015, being highly placed every time out. Successful at BE 80/90 with potential and enough boldness to easily go through the levels to the top.
Beautifully and very correctly schooled on the flat, has 3 stunning paces, works in a consistent outline, all lateral work established, counter canter etc. Would easily BSJA/BD.
He is a very responsive, sensitive ride, but gives you absolutely 100% in everything he does. He needs a quiet, capable rider and would not suit a novice or unbalanced rider pulling him around. Will only be sold to an experienced 5* competition home where he can carry on his career and be taken to the top.
Up to date with vaccinations, teeth, worming etc.
