Full up 14.2hh, 6 yr old Registered Connemara gelding. Very genuine, honest and kind, with an adorable cheeky nature! Getting nicely established on the flat. At various arena hires, Rocky has popped a course of show jumps and not been phased by fillers. He’s attended PC rallies, competed unaffiliated dressage, including PC dressage regionals last year and combined training. We’ve attended a handful of local shows, where he has always been in the ribbons. He enjoys XC schooling, where he has proved very bold. Rocky is comfortable jumping 60-70cm, with plenty of scope to go higher. We have been careful not to push him any further due to his age and maturity. He is a very quick learner. Due to his age, Rocky is still green and can be spooky and have baby moments in new situations, looking to his rider for reassurance. He is therefore not a novice ride and needs a quiet, balanced experienced rider, who will take the time to produce him slowly. Rocky can be unsure of new people, but quickly makes friends as his inquisitive nature takes over! Currently being ridden by my 13-year-old daughter, however we feel a more experienced teenager or small adult, would be better to continue his education. In time he would make a cracking eventer, Working Hunter, PC or Riding Club competition horse. Hacks alone and in company seeing cars, lorries, farm machinery, motorbikes, and cyclists. Currently living on a busy DIY yard and so is used to kids, dogs, geese, ducks, quad bikes, and tractors! Good in open spaces. Currently lives out at night and in during the day. Good with the farrier, vet, dentist, physio and saddler. Good to catch and loads first time. Up to date with vaccinations, dentist and worming. Currently barefoot and his farrier always remarks on how good his feet are! Rocky is very affectionate, loves to be fussed, always greets you with a whinny and is a firm yard favourite! He loves a nap and is often found snuggled up with my daughter in his stable. This is a heart-breaking sale only due to my daughter moving onto horses and our personal circumstances changing. We now just don’t have the time that Rocky deserves, so genuine enquiries only please. Open to vetting. An abundance of videos and photos available on request. £6,500 to include bridle. Almost new saddle available by separate negotiation. Located near to Bicester, Oxon/Bucks border.
