Risque Romance – “Cupid” – Super Athletic Eventer or Jumper – SOLD
Risque Romance is TBxHanoverian (2000) by A Fine Romance. He is 16.1 with great feet and conformation. He is very sound, fit, healthy and ready to go! No previous injuries or lamenesses. He has evented to Prelim in the US and done some intermediate derbies – always clear in the jumping phases. He is an incredibly scopey and round jumper and super careful and athletic. No pole work EVER confuses this guy! He’s also brave, straight and honest. The last three pros who have ridden this horse love him. One calls his jump “Fantastic” and another US High Performance B list rider states he’s one of her “favourite horses of all time to jump”. He is like a rubber ball to jump – he pats the ground and pings every time.
Risque Romance is a very nice mover and can score well in the dressage, but he needs a rider who can provide a steady, elastic contact otherwise he can be insecure about the contact. He could go on in Eventing to the upper levels (scope is definitely there) or else he would also be happy as a 1.20+ jumper. His lead changes are perfect. He loves the deep spot and gives a phenomenal feeling over a jump. He’s also extremely careful and always tries his hardest to leave the rails up. Clips, ties, loads, great manners, super quiet, not spooky and easy going on the ground at shows, easy keeper, hacks on the buckle and will live in or out. Very (very!) tidy in his stall.
Owner is a physician with a young family and has purchased another horse. Price 25k obo.
