More Information

When i started riding Excalibur he was quite stubborn and liked to bolt and jump out of the arena, which fence stood at 1.3m and he cleared it with ease and he loved to jump out and run to his paddock and jump into there to go and chill, With lots of persistence and plenty of patience he started working like a dream, soon learned to react off of riders body, and could go from gallop to halt with just some weight shifted. And he developed a gorgeous jump, But he was quite a heavy mover and was therefore a snail in the cross country.

When it came to selling him on i did sell him as a all rounder, more suitable to Dressage, Show Jumping and showing as he lacked a good gallop. He was sold to a young man for those exact disciplines, Dressage, Show Jumping and Showing. They are currently working well together and having very successful shows.
