    Heartbreaking sale of my beautiful 8 year old absolute gentleman 'Rosco'. I have owned Rosco for nearly 3 years but unfortunately my personal circumstances are now forcing me to sell him. He was born in Ireland and brought to England to be professionally schooled from where I bought him as a beautifully schooled 5 year old. He is a genuine, safe, quality all-rounder and we have enjoyed a bit of everything together including XC, dressage, SJ, Le Trec, Pleasure Rides, Local shows, Gallops, various clinics and lots of fun at home hacking, schooling and jumping. He is impeccably behaved at every venue, has super conformation and movement and scores highly in local dressage and brought home two 1st places at his first show alone in WH and Coloured classes. He has a big, bold jump and really enjoys jumping. He is quite forward once he gets into jumping mode but he is a real confidence giver, takes you to a fence and can jump over 1m sensibly and with ease. He hacks out superbly, both in company or alone and is extremely good in traffic. He is snaffle mouthed. I have introduced lots of new things to Rosco like crossing taupaulins and wooden footbridges and he takes his confidence from his rider and once he has had a look at something he is so genuine he will just get on with the job. I often ride Rosco bareback (schooling, hacking and jumping) as he is so balanced and beautifully schooled and I believe he will be best suited to a rider who understands working in an outline to allow him to excel at jumping and flatwork. He would make a superb mother/daughter share or PC/RC horse or could really do well at Trec, Pleasure Rides or hunting. He adjusts to whoever is riding him and I can canter him around the arena without holding the reins although I don’t feel he would suit a complete beginner as he does need his rider to be positive to get the best from him. He is a true gentleman to handle and a pleasure to be around. He is fantastic to clip absolutely everywhere on his face and body (I often don't even bother with a headcollar) but he doesn't tolerate clipping below knees and hocks so I leave his beautiful feathers natural. He is good to catch but like most cobs he does like his grass so if he is on super tasty grass I do take a carrot. He is 100% to shoe (shod front only and farrier says his feet are awesome), he's also perfect to load and travel, dentist, bath, groom, lead, feet, etc. He lives out 24/7 in summer and is stabled overnight in winter. He is very sweet around dogs and young children. I used to lead a 12.2hh pony off him out on hacks and in the school and he was fantastic. You really can safely take Rosco anywhere and have great fun with him. This wonderful little horse has been a dream to own and I am gutted to have to sell him. I am not in any hurry as it is more important that I find the perfect home who will love and enjoy this superstar as much as I have. Genuine enquiries only please. £5,250
