Just curious to see what people think of this guy.
He's an 8 year old 3/4 Dutch WB 1/4 TB gelding standing at 16.1hh. He was gelded as a 5 year old as he was intended to be the replacement sire for his own sire, who passed away during colic surgery. However his temperament was not suited to being kept entire - although he's a lovely boy I am glad that he was gelded as I don't believe him to be stallion quality!
He has had nearly 12 months out of work kept in a small stable and yard 24/7. Prior to his time off he was in very inconsistent work for 18 months (sometimes 4 rides / week, sometimes none). His owner did not get on with him under saddle hence all of his time off.
I was offered him as a lease, which I have now accepted and am thoroughly enjoying him.
I am curious to know what people here think of his conformation as far as a dressage career goes, as he was bred for dressage but has got a lovely jump on him apparently.
