EXPERIENCE

Wilkinson arrived in October 2007.

Wilkinson had done one practice show in Holland on his arrival and has proved to be a fabulous character for learning. He is well balanced with a superb jumping technique being very neat in front and with plenty of scope.

His flatwork is very advanced for his years and he is taking everything in his stride. Laid back in his nature at home, he perks up at shows and can be a little exciteable in the collecting ring. However, once in the ring he focuses on his job and is a dream to ride. This horse loves to jump and compete! He responds well to the leg and is already well balanced in his paces having his changes well perfected.

This season he qualified for Scope and jumped in the Championship Arena in a feature class. He really rose to the occasion and the audience and jumped a fabulous clear. He has now progressed to 1.10m classes and is again winning rosettes jumping double clears. He is very consistent, careful and a real rossette machine being placed nearly every time out.

He has a very mature attitude and is one I will be really sad to sell! He loves his job and has a big future ahead of him.

Wilkinson has the breeding and attitude to make a top level jumper.

 

 

 

 

 

ABOUT ME!

Wilkinson is a really lovely horse in the stable.

He has a very laid back nature and takes everything in his stride being totally unfazed by his first set of shoes and his first clip!

He is a delight to handle and does everything asked of him in a calm and relaxed manner.

A pleasure to deal with and to have around the yard - a real character!
