Sire: "green bank harlequin" - evented up to 2* and showjumped up to 1.40. -
Buddy is the definition of 'wonder cob', he is a chunky boy with an extra go faster gear. Potential in the show ring as a maxi cob!
Buddy would make a wonderful hunter for anybody, he's XC schooled round BE90-100 fences, including ditches, water, combinations etc. Absolutely nothing fazes this boy. He's definitely ready for the Autumn hunting season. He is currently being ridden by a tall, but light weight jockey who has absolutely no trouble controlling him.
We have recently taken Buddy Autumn hunting. He was excellently behaved throughout the whole afternoon. Stood wonderfully at the meet. He wasn't phased by the hounds and was more than happy cantering along side, behind and in front of others. He was much admired due to his cracking attitude and paces.
Buddy has really taken to jumping, and very much enjoys it. He's popping 90cm spreads at home, and despite his size, is very adjustable to a fence and will do his best to clear whatever you put in front of him. Has NEVER stopped at anything, even the scariest fillers we could find to put in front of him.
He is a wonderful hack, no traffic bothers this lad. He doesn't get overly strong in open spaces. But when you open him up he is very quick therefore please no novices. He has hacked alone and in company. Very good to stand whilst you open gates. He would be a great happy hacker for someone that likes something with a spring in its step.
He's got a great personality, he's all round a big softie. Loves a good brush, and very good to clip and pull mane and tail. He has been an all round pleasure to have on the yard and always makes you smile when you see him in the morning.
Buddy is going to make a wonderful hunter, hacker, or all rounder for somebody. But please do not contact me if you're looking for a plod along or dopy cob because he is not that.
