AVAILABLE ON OUR 28 DAY TRIAL POLICY Chester - 12.1hh DOB:01/06/2011 liver chestnut Dartmoor x welsh type gelding. Very sweet, inquisitive little lad. Was a rescue so can be cautious but once he trusts you he will do anything for you. Good to bath (when done slowly else will fidget), catch (99% of the time he will come cantering over to call or will need some grass), load, travel, handle (quiet handler) & with (a quiet) farrier. Absolutely loves a good fuss & scratches under his chin but doesn't like faces being to close to his (seems to trigger a negative memory) but this is improving as he will now give me kisses and allow face cuddles. Isnt head shy with hands and is fine to groom, put on bridle etc etc. Has been XC schooling twice and jumped everything asked of him inc palisades, tyres, logs, drops, in and out of water, barrels, chairs, tiger traps, tubes etc. Was happy to go off on his own and pop over fences. Stood around waiting for his turn calmly. Did absolutely love it and thought he was a very clever boy! Absolutely flew over fences of 1m with room to go further. Takes his rider into the fence. Had an amazing time on this boy and he was so much fun to ride. Been to a local show with us where he did two clear rounds at apx 2'3ft. After the first few jumps he cottoned on to what he had to do and flew round giving the jumps plenty of clearance. Wasn't bothered by show environment and stood around waiting at the lorry perfectly. Been to a clear round at Houghton hall, rode in the indoor arena, gave leads to a younger rider and wasn't fazed by all the affiliated scary fillers. Stood around waiting like a gem. Clean limbed. No lumps or bumps. Has a massive extension & covers an incredible amount of ground as he floats along. HUGE jump, & I mean huge for such a small boy. Loose schooled over 1m with total ease. Shows lots of potential to become a cracking little showjumping pony but would do equally well in the ring if produced correctly. Suitable for confident child, teen or small adult. Not going to be a kick along type as he really does enjoy his work. Forward going enthusiastic ride. Responsive ride, listens to seat, legs and voice well. Snaffle mouthed although took him Xc in a happy mouth two ring on his first time. Absolutely loves to be ridden and thoroughly enjoys his work. Hacks out alone, in company, in front or behind. Tends to take the lead when out hacking as is very bold! Green but not a 'spooky' type - will waltz up to something if he isn't sure what it is. Very bold little chap. Good in busy traffic & with the farm machinery we have passed on the farm. 'A diamond in the rough' describes this boy perfectly, he has so much potential in the right home, just needs someone that can see what he will become with some time. Happy to loan or available for sale with our 28 day trial policy at £1200. Price will increase as soon as my arena is finished and his education has been furthered but unfortunately at the moment I lack the facilities. Home will be vetted. Call Katie on 07540899304 to discuss suitability.
