8 YRS PORTUGUESE GELDING
Arquiero is a super 14.2hh 8yr old Portuguese chap (gelding) imported over a year ago by his current owner. His grandsire is Nilo on both sides.
He has done a bit of everything and, as his video and photo show, is demonstrating considerable talent in many areas. He is still a bit green although uncomplicated so would require a relatively knowledgeable home. He is good in the stable, to shoe, clip, box etc. He hacks alone and in company. He loves his jumping and has a super, scopey careful jump. He would definitely affiliate for pony BS. He works well in a snaffle for his flat work and is ready for some dressage tests. He would be great for all pony club and riding club activities but is better than your average all-rounder as he could excel in several disciplines.
