Flexible: 1996 Chestnut 1.62m, ISH 2480485
Flexible is a son of Cruising, one of the great stallions of the year 2000. His dam, Flex, is an international winner with E.Doyle and has Thoroughbred bloodlines. She produced two other great international winners, Flexing who was third at the European junior championships and Samgemjee, who won CSI** in 2013.
Having Irish origins, Flexible has been competing in the USA for the last 10 years, at the highest level with his rider Richard Feller. He took part in six World Cup Finals, and won one in 2012, was second in 2008 and … at 19 years old he was seventh in the 2015 World Cup finals! He was sixth at the London Olympic Games and won the Calgary Grand Prix three times. A small horse with big abilities.
Flexible has only a few offspring at the moment, including Cushions who is a GP150 winner in the USA and Cruicerath Flexiana who was the 2015 5 year old’s Irish champion.
Small in height with a big heart, with lots of physical blood and energy, Flexible is as easy to use as his father was. He is the very image of the modern horse. He is machine for tight turns and big jumps with unlimited generosity. He is a great way of bringing energy, bravery and the good health of Thoroughbreds without compromising on jumping capacity or quality. He is particularly outstanding by his longevity, having retired at 19 after being placed in a world cup finale that same year. He also boasts outstanding fertility even in frozen.
