Herbie is looking for his new home as he has sadly been outgrown. He is 13.2hh 12 year old chestnut Welsh gelding. We have had the pleasure of owning him for 2.5/3 years and in that time he has given my daughter so much confidence and fun. He absolutely loves to jump and is quick and careful. They have done many local competitions coming home with rosettes. Their highlight was qualifying for and competing in the 3 day Show Jumping Championships of Great Britain at The David Broome Centre placing in many classes! Usually competes around 70-80cm but has jumped up to 1m at home in training. He can also do a great dressage test and has been in the rosettes with scores of up to 72% at local competitions. He has done cross country training proving to always sensible and brave to the jumps. He is great to hack alone or in company and does not get fizzy in open spaces. He does not need riding every day, can be left a week or more and good to just get on and go. He’s more of a second pony type, is forward going, but sensible and safe, ridden in a snaffle for all disciplines. Great to load on trailers and lorries and travels well alone or with company. Currently living out but is also happy stabled. Can be turned out alone or in company. He does windsuck straight after food or treats but not all the time and this hasn’t ever adversely affected him. He has some nerve sensitivity on his withers so it is best not to rug him as can make him sore but otherwise doesn’t affect him or affect riding. I will discuss all this in full to anyone who is seriously interested in him and I am happy for my vets to discuss his full medical history with you or your vet. Plenty of videos on request. Home is important to us and we would like to stay in touch if possible.
