Fergus has had extensive experience foxhunting in Ireland and was recently taken to one horse trial, during which he came in fourth in good competition. Fergus has also done several hunter trials very well. This horse can be a speedy high jumping quick turning machine, and never touched a rail in the 2 days I jumped him in Ireland, despite jumping him higher than he had in an arena before. He is naturally good at dressage, and as such, he was the easiest horse of all the horses I rode in Ireland over 4 days to lengthen or shorten with, and on the double, even when there were fences in front of him. He has unusually good balance and strength for his age, and handles horrible footing in tight turns at speed like it is million dollar footing! He is truly the best athlete and most versatile 4 y/o horse I have ever sat on. 4 year olds are not supposed to be able to do what he can do in the manner in which he does it. Period. He jumps any fence at any distance for any reason at any time and is honest as the day is long. He has excellent feet as well. I can’t say enough about this horse and he carried my Adult Amateur self around first experiences for him like he was a 12 y/o horse being ridden by a pro. His former owners felt that he would succeed the best at hunting or eventing, but I actually think he is sooooo talented in show jumping, that he would do best at that.
