Description
Horses like this don’t come along very often and we have been very privileged to have him in our lives. Absolute gentleman in the field and stable, perfectly behaved to shoe, clip, load, travel, etc.. up to date with everything, fit and ready to go. We bought him 18 months ago as a family share, he has gone beyond all of our expectations and is for sale through no fault of his own. A change of personal circumstances means he is without a jockey and he is too good to stand in the field. He has been regularly ridden by our whole family from my 12-year-old daughter, myself and my mother, who all hack him out alone and in company. But his real passion in life is jumping where he has taken my 16yo son from a 13.3 pony jumping 70 to competing at Pony Club Champs (SJ) last year and qualifying for a second year this year in the Arena Eventing 95 and105 champs at Hickstead. He can turn on a sixpence and loves his job. He takes you to a fence yet comes straight back on the other side, he is a schoolmaster who takes little direction and is very forgiving. I’d struggle to think of an outing when he isn’t in the ribbons. Although 17 years of age he really is in the prime of his life, full of energy and a love of his job. His older sister started her eventing career last year at 24 and is in the ribbons. He has taken part in countless pony club rallies and camp with both my 12yo and 16yo, good with fillers, XC, Water, Fun Rides, Hacking etc.... He really will only be available to the best of homes. Serious enquiries only. Wardrobe included.
