  • LOCATION : IIkley West Yorkshire 
  • NAME : Cal
  • AGE : 9 rising 10
  • BREEDING : Thoroughbred from Irish bloodlines 
  • VICES : None
  • RACES RUN : 26 - 3 Times winner with 2 PU and 1 F 
  • MEDICAL HISTORY : He has a cut on his fetlock from his second last run which is healed over and still has some thickening as not finished healing thoroughly- the flesh is trying to grow slightly proud so we are putting builders lime to stop it leaving a bump. Cal also has a small splint on the inside of his off fore but it is of no consequences and most certainly does not bother him. 
  • VACS UP TO DATE : Yes
  • HOOF CONDITION : Good
  • SARCOIDS : None

GENRAL NOTES : 

This is a beautiful horse!!

Cal moves very well, he is great on the road and doesn’t mind if he’s with others or alone. He is a very scopey jumper. 

Needs reschooling on the flat to a level he can excel at for dressage or Eventing/working hunter/ROR etc. 

He has recently had a day out hunting and loved it.  Good with the hounds.  He is a well behaved and sensible chap. 

A real looker who would wow in ROR classes! Snaffle mouth.  He excels with a quiet rider, someone with soft hands.

He passed a 3 stage vetting in April.

He’s just totally lost interest in racing. He does need a rider with soft hands though as if you are in the slightest heavy handed he will just mess about with his mouth.  He’s not keen just fussy. 

Doesn’t crib or wind suck.  He’s pretty chilled out, a kid could lead him around to be fair but he’s got a serious load of presence! 

Superb ROR prospect for someone seriously into it.
