Gelding by Avoca Flaunt It x Little Miss Em | Born 2011 | Clydesdale Anglo Cross | 17hh
He is easy to handle in every manner, transport and trim.
Marcus is a true gentleman with the dashing looks to match. He was brought on slowly using, exclusively, classical dressage training techniques, making him a mature, vice-free ride. Marcus is well established in the walk, trot, canter and has commenced his training of the sideways movements and counter canter.
Marcus would suit an experienced dressage rider willing to put in the time to develop both yourself and Marcus up the levels.
1/2 brother, Avoca Big Em is currently graded Medium and schooling FEI.
1/2 sister, Avoca Rebecca recently competed Novice, coming home with 2nd place and a super score of 72%.
Sire: Avoca Flaunt It (Avoca Cardinal x Avoca Matilda) Currently competing Medium/Advanced
Avoca Matilda is the full brother to Avoca Black Saint who represented Australia in the World Dressage Challenge in 2000 at Prix St George and then was a real crowd favourite at Grand Prix with his expressive piaffe/passage consistently scoring 8’s, plus his canter pirouettes and tempi changes were exceptional.
Dam: Little Miss Em (Arab x TB)
Emma was a 15.1 pocket rocket whom competed successfully at Advanced before retiring to full time mum. Her forte was her medium and extended work where she consistently scored 9’s.
Marcus has been paddocked and stabled by himself or in the herd.
He can be ridden out independently or with other horses. He recently has completed a day clinic at Urban Trails with 20 other horses in the group.
Marcus currently competes Preliminary with his scores up to and including 66%. He will do one more Prelim start than be moved onto Novice. He is easy in the warm up arena and in the yards or tied to the truck.
Marcus would be an asset in any stable. :)
