Very very quite for an ex race horse. Never puts a 'hoof wrong', you can leave the stable door open and he won't go any where. Every time you walk into the stables he gives you a little whinny, and when you make his food. When he is out in the field he is very quite and always eats with my coloured showjumper. He loves being worked and loves jumping jumps. Valley also loves to do flatwork, what ever the weather he just gets on and does it.
He is amazing for his gates. He does walk-trot, walk-canter, holt-canter very very well, doesn't even feel as though he is changing gait. Took me a little while to teach him, but now he knows he is just very good at his gaits.
Valley currently jumps BE100 and jumps 1m crosscountry very easily and gets placed every time. I have done some show jumping with him as you can see in the photo's and he jumps them very big indeed. This year i am taking him to more dressage & show jumping competitions.
