EXPERIENCE

Des Texes is being sold on behalf of a client and arrived in January 2008.

He had been competed by an amateur girl rider and has been ridden up to 1.35m level with the same rider. He completed the Pyecombe Ladies Derby in 2006 with just one fence down and has been consistently competed at 1.20/1.30m level by amateur riders. In 2007 he jumped the Young Riders classes at Scope with his young inexperienced rider and they did extremely well.

He is an out and out schoolmaster! He is extremely easy to ride going in a simple snaffle and requires little leg. He is forward going without being sharp, is careful and willing. As he is so easy to ride, he has mostly been ridden by amateur riders but has a huge jump and I think still has the best to come as he has had a very easy life so far.

He is naturally very well balanced, has all his changes well established and is a real pleasure to ride.

This horse is fantastically bred, with still his best years to come and is very regrettably for sale by his young rider as she has decided to concentrate on her up and coming flat race jockey career.

 

 

 

 

ABOUT ME!

Tex is a really lovely horse who is very sweet in every way.

He has been excellent to handle both in and out of the stable and is really like a big puppy and a real pet.

He has a great personality and always has a 'smile' on his face.

A really lovely horse who is a pleasure to have on the yard.
