For Sale £6,000 Bandantic
Bandantic (Archie) is an 8 year old 16.1 hh sports horse who has been life graded at West Wilts EQ Centre with a score of 6.7
He has done a bit of eventing and loves XC. He jumps confidently at 1m and although his dressage is only Prelim (me rather than him!) he scores 70% or more every time.
Despite all of this he is an easy ride and has hacked out alone, with mares and geldings, first, last or side by side. He is brilliant in traffic and for that reason has been ridden out with youngsters to boost their confidence. He is snaffled mouthed and very responsive to the leg.
In the three years I’ve had him he’s done pleasure rides, hacks, lessons and dressage and thrives off learning. He is easy to handle and a pleasure to be around. I’ve known Archie nearly all his life as I broke him in for his previous owner and I can honestly say he loves his work.
He has been out for the summer covering mares and been bought back into work where he has taken off exactly where we left him. I know he is my once in a lifetime horse and if I had the resources for him he would go far.
However I have 2 children, a job and another horse to work and he is being wasted.
He has produced some lovely foals, the eldest starting her eventing life and doing extremely well for a 4 year old.
Genuine sale of a super talented boy.
I have more photos of him doing xc but can’t upload them for copyright reasons. Also if you go to YouTube and search “Bandantic out of atlantic z” there is a video of him up there. Let me know if you want more info. Many thanks
