16.2hh 6yo full registered green book Irish Draught gelding Tors Gentleman Farmer x Shenandoah Prince Holly. Big gentle boy with plenty of quality, a type hard to find. Woodstock is a stunning, substantial, impressive model who really draws the eye. He is upstanding with good bone and front but isn't at all wide or a lump. He oozes quality and draws comments wherever he goes. Quality enough to show. Gives a lovely secure feeling under saddle with enough in front of you whilst still being a compact model. Everyone who rides him ends up beaming, he gives you such a great feeling! He has 3 lovely, active paces with a light snaffle mouth deserving of good hands. He is a little bit green in the school still due to mostly doing other activities but he is a real trier who is very trainable and wants to please. With his paces he has all the potential to do a very smart test with the right production. Woodstock really enjoys his outside activities. He has lightly hunted, done fun rides, cross country schooling, showjumping and hunter trials. He will happily trot and pop if you're a bit nervous just keep him straight and tell him where he's going. Good in a group and in open spaces, good with water, ditches and banks. Doesn't get hot or silly, behaves himself beautifully by the lorry and in the warm up. Always ridden in a snaffle and is always the same away as he is at home. Super consistent and reliable, doesn't change. Great to hack, he is good on the road and goes on his own and in company. Not spooky or flighty and marches on brightly. Absolutely no vices or quirks and not a bad thought in his head, Woodstock has never once gone looking for a boundary line or a weakness he is just a happy chap keen to please. Good to do on the ground in all ways. He is a pet on the end of the rope and turns out happily with others. Will live in or out, user friendly. He is a lovely quality horse that would really excel with a confident, competent rider looking to have some fun in the summer before cracking on with the hunting season! Woodstock really is a type hard to find, we are always asked for this type and we search and search but just really don't get them often. Although Woodstock is a really sweet, genuine horse because of his quality and age we would prefer him to go to an experienced home. Woodstock has previously not settled well on a small private yard of 4 horses so we believe he may be best suited to a livery or hunt yard. Serious enquiries to please CALL ONLY. Texts and messages WILL BE IGNORED. We believe he has had a successful wind op in the past which should not affect his chances of passing a vetting. Open to any inspection. All video can be found on the Amy Derber Equestrian Facebook page just search Woodstock.
