Schoolmaster For Sale


16.3hh Lusitano x Warmblood gelding 12yo

Sancho came to the UK early in 2014 as a schoolmaster teaching horse. He had competed and trained up to PSG in Spain with young rider. Since being imported, he’s helped train riders progressing to more advanced work at Dovecote Stables.

He has a huge amount of talent to play with: super hind leg, impressive trot, established in all lateral work, working towards canter pirouette and greater collection/elevation. Whilst he knows all the moves from his classical Spanish education, his advanced training isn’t yet quite polished enough to campaign in a tail-coat at BD, and so he’s been produced this year to go out at medium/advanced medium, and will start campaigning this autumn. He’s eminently trainable and very eager to please, and we predict he will progress swiftly to higher level competitions, offering a great opportunity to an ambitious rider.

This horse is a really lovely character who is a joy to handle as well as ride. He hacks out happily alone and in company (currently working on his extended canter in the stubble fields), is traffic proof, loads and travels well, and is 100% vice free in field and stable. He’s switched on and powerful without being sharp, and will give his new rider an absolutely super time training and competing.

Only regrettably for sale due to relocation.!
