Snowfields Benson - #158086 (registered to us but haven’t got the papers) Sire: Fladbury Stud A Beckett (by Rivoli Ray) 15.3hh 15yo Chestnut gelding. Has just come in from an 18 month break and is going well. Benson has a lovely nature and is truly a pleasure in every way to handle and have around. No vices, good to c/s/f/w. He has previously been very competitive in eventing, showjumping and dressage, competing up to Prelim level with several placings and dressage scores above 70%. He has competed at Interschools at SIEC and been to pony club with an experienced teenage rider. Benson has a lovely scopey jump and is very bold cross country. He has elevated movement and a huge extended trot; when this movement is harnessed it makes for an incredible dressage test! However he can be a bit of a handful when not in full work; he certainly isn’t dangerous but he can tend to think he is something special and get a bit excited. Benson is an ideal mustering horse; he is tough and reliable and thrives on work. He has done plenty of mustering in very steep conditions and will go all day and always pulls up sound. Benson would suit an experienced rider who can give him the work he needs to reach and maintain his full potential again, whether as a competitive allrounder or an outstanding workhorse. Selling on behalf of my mother who will only let him go to an approved home as she is very attached to him! He is a real character; loves any attention and will happily share a beer with you at the end of the day. Sad sale purely because he is being wasted in the paddock. $2000 to good home only.
