This TB gelding was a super horse I trained up the levels of eventing to 2* (right on moving up to 3*) before selling him overseas as a 7yr old.
He could hardly canter a circle or pick up the correct lead when I brought him for $500 but with a lot of consistent training he progressed quickly.
He was a real joy to produce and a powerhouse on the cross country.
I seriously rate NZ & Australian bred TB's….. they are super athletic, strong and bred really well with a fast responsive mind. There is a lot of prejudice against TBs that they are crazy and difficult to work with but they are one of my favorite breeds as a jumping horse!
NOTE -I did personally find that overall the TB's in the USA were very different to the TB's back in NZ/Ausie.
