Abbie is a gorgeous full up 15.1h irish middle weight/light weight cob. She has extremely correct conformation, clean limbs and super straight movement. She has previously be shown at county level in Ireland as a cob and has been successful at the Royal Dublin Show. She has the conformation, looks, movement and temperament to be successful showing in this country. She is a lovely alrounder who has been there and had a go at everything, she's also hunted 5 sessions in Ireland and also a session in Kent where she was outstanding.
Abbie has 3 active correct paces and works in a nice outline. She is a responsive ride who works nicely between hand and leg. She is nicely forward going and snaffle mouthed. She has been ridden by a range of different riders from competent novices upwards. She is not a typical ploddy cob, she has lovely active paces, so therefore she wouldn't suit a complete novice. She is a very safe ride and gives her rider confidence. She would do a nice preliminary dressage test now and has the potential to progress through the levels.
Abbie loves to jump and she makes a nice shape over a fence. She is a real point and aim and is very honest, she has never refused or ran out. She gives you confidence as you know she will always jump no matter what stride you are on. She has done unaffiliated show jumping up to 90cm where she has been successful. She jumps all coloured and rustic fillers without hesitation. She is forward going when she is jumping but she is never silly or fizzy. She's a very straight forward honest horse to jump.
Abbie is amazing at cross country. She jumps everything including large 4ft hedges and wide ditches. She is great at technical fences including skinnys, coffins, water complexes, corners and combinations. She gives her rider lots of confidence and an amazing feeling. She really covers the ground and remains very sane and sensible throughout the course.
Abbie is lovely to hack alone and in company. She is excellent in traffic and regularity crosses the a47 roundabout where nothing phases her. She is used to give less confident horses a lead past scary objects as she is the least spooky horse that I know and will go past anything. She is really nice in open spaces, always sane and sensible. She happily goes in any order within the group but does prefer being in front. She is not at all strong to canter out. She has been on lots of sponsored rides where she is always a star.
Abbie has a superb quiet temperament and is always very polite to handle. She forms a strong bond with her main handler. She's really loving and loves to be groomed. She is very straight forward to do in all ways including catching, leading, shoeing, loading, clipping ect. She lives in or out and alone or in company, she gets on well with other horses.
We are looking for a 5* home for Abbie where she will be loved and have lots of fun. She would be a great hunter, show horse, alrounder, mother/daughter share or leisure/pleasure horse.
