Magnum is almost a clone of his older brother, Mystery Whisper. He is a beautiful type, perhaps a little fuller and rounder than Mystery Whisper, certainly very food oriented. He is desperately intelligent and is always inventing new ways of amusing himself. In the dressage arena he has huge talent and already is schooling at Prix St Georges level. Magnum is massively competition compatible and can do a very ordinary dressage test and still win by a mile! Very sickening sometimes when other horses on the truck try very hard at competition and struggle for due recognition. Such is life.
Magnum is a very confident jumper and although only at Pre-Novice level will school both showjumping and crosscountry with the advanced horses. He has a super tecnique and a jump which is truly scopey which makes the big tracks and the big fences relatively easy. He is very comfortable jumping around 1.10m tracks and is pretty spectacular up to and including 1.30m. Magnum is very watchful and more than a little creative in front of his fence which is particularly handy if the rider has not given the most acurate ride to a fence. like his brother, Mystery Whisper we expect Magnum to make the top grade and be a potential candidate for the 2012 Olympics in London.
