Cargill Tyson Equestrian proudly presents for sale on behalf of owner “Cuzco”! Cuzco is a striking dapple grey with good conformation and an outstanding quiet temperament. He is by Calgary GNZ and out of Dutch Empress. He was bred at a show jumping stable and had been out and about doing a few shows with original owner. His current owner is a smaller young rider who really needs an eventing schoolmaster to show her the ropes and take her up the levels, and being young and show jumping bred, Cuzco isn’t brave enough to be a schoolmaster type. If he was going to go on to do eventing and show jumping competitively he would need a competent/strong jumping rider to encourage him and give him confidence. Ben has been jumping him up to 1m in the past 2 weeks but he does ride him with a lot of leg. Although he is not specifically bred for dressage, he does show talent in this phase with a very expressive trot that we feel with more strength and suppleness would be very impressive in the dressage ring. He has a very big, scopey and uphill canter that also shows promise for upper level dressage but will take a good 6 months of training to balance and truly collect as it is just so big and expressive!He can be a little lazy at times, definitely more woah than go but is getting more attentive to the aids every day. He is willing in the contact although not 100% secure in the connection, he definitely will be with further dressage training. He is also very trainable and once he is consistently more in front of the leg we feel he will really excel as an EA/PCAV/HRCAV dressage or showing mount or an allrounder with an experienced jumping rider. He isn’t very spooky and loves trail riding and hacking out so would also make a wonderful versatile pleasure horse for someone looking to be competitive one day and then head out on the trails the next. He is extremely sound with his current owners doing a very thorough vet check around 12 months ago when purchased and have a current vet report from his insurance policy that can be viewed upon request. He has a genuine and easy to do everything with temperament and is very well behaved to shoe, clip, float, catch etc. He is an affectionate horse and loves attention so will thrive with a rider who is looking for a best friend/partner to bring along, have fun with and win lots of ribbons!
