All Rounder, Happy Hacker and Hunting
Hercules is an 8yo coloured gelding standing approx. 14.1hh who has been in the same home most of his life. He is very low mileage having mainly been used for hacking and had a couple of days hunting and has been used as a mother/daughter share. He is fantastic in traffic, is good alone or in company and is happy to go first or last. He is also not a pony that needs to be ridden every day and is the same whether he is ridden every day or once a week. He is also fantastic in open spaces and doesn’t get strong or silly. He’s been with us previously and has done a variety of schooling, hacking, jumping and trail hunting. After leaving us on schooling livery last year he has been used for hacking, some lessons and done a small amount of hunting but not been in consistent work due to owner’s commitments. He is still green in the school but has been a quick learner and is always wanting to please you. He is nicely forward going and not a complete plod and responsive to your leg aids. Hercules has also popped over some small showjumps with us and think that as his confidence grows he will have a good jump in him. He’s attended some Club jumping for his first show where he was impeccably behaved. He was good to load, travelled great and was super easy to deal with at the show. He was very willing and jumped a super round for his first full course too. He has enjoyed a couple of days out hunting with us and his owner. He stands politely at the meet and will go and stop with the field. Equally when I wanted to leave to hack home he walked away from everyone with no fuss and was good as gold. Everything he has done he has been snaffle mouth and he is good for the farrier, vet, clip and catch and has no vices. He is good to handle and lead etc but can be a little nervous of new people. We think he could do anything from being a happy hacker to hunting pony to allrounder and could be a mother/daughter share too. Due to him being a little green and taking his confidence from the rider he isn’t suitable for a nervous novice. The owner is asking £6,500 however open to sensible offers for a quick sale to the right home and he is based near Cullompton (10mins from J27 of the M5).
