Ringo (Highland Charmed) is an absolute gentlemen and is the ultimate package with
amazing movement and jumping ability. In his last competitions he was rarely out
of the placings. Some of his placings include 1st Goulburn, 3rd Canberra, 2nd Scone,
1st Mirrabooka, 1st Goulburn, 5th Camden, 2nd Canberra.
Talisman Sport Horses is extremely excited to have purchased Ringo (Highland Charmed),
he is a seven year old thoroughbred stallion that is currently starting his career
under saddle and is showing all the ability of his brother Henry (Highland Charm
3***). Highland Charm was sold to the UK to eventing rider Polly Jackson, in Australia
he was known to be a freak jumper, and subsequently nicknamed ‘How High Henry’!
Ringo already showed his jumping ability by jumping out of a 1.80 round yard while
being broken-in, however, what is most spectacular about Ringo is his sensational
movement which is rarely seen in a thoroughbred. Ringo moves like a Warmblood, he
has extravagant and elevated paces. Everyone that lays eyes on Ringo is blown away,
Sam Lyle, Australian’s show jumping coach for eventing stated ‘he has exceptional
movement and could be a pure dressage horse’.
As well as exceptional movement, jumping pedigree and confirmation, Ringo has a superb
temperament. He is able to cope with the pressures of becoming an eventer but his
kind and gentle nature has seen him ridden by children that we teach. At competitions
people rarely realise that he is a Stallion.
In short, Ringo is a complete package, particularly for those breeders looking to
add some Thoroughbred athleticism to larger Warmblood or Irish types without having
to compromise on movement or jumping ability. This is your chance to breed from a
young horse before he gets runs on the board at competitions.
Ringo has commenced his performance career, as such he is only offered at stud via
fresh or chilled semen.
