HorsesPotential Young Sports£ 4,0005 yrs 11 mths
16.1hh, rising 6yo gelding. Sold from the field. Microchip, passport with SHBGB. Up to date with farrier, worming.
Through no fault of his own; this stunning chestnut roan ISH is for sale. Has Cruising in his ancestry, bred to jump.
A really sad sale that I have dithered over but I don’t have the time he needs. With us since a weanling, currently turned away and sold from the field.
- Fantastic conformation, excellent feet, never sick or sorry or needed the vet
- Well bred, out of a Goldhills Grade A jumping mare with Cruising in his ancestry. His dam went on to be a superb hunter, sailing over the biggest fences. Has siblings eventing, hunting and as alrounders
- Given time to mature into his frame and develop mentally; shows lovely paces with natural collection, extension and lateral movement
- A strong horse with over 9” of bone - superb weight carrier
- Unspoilt, relaxed and easy to handle, good for dentist, vet, farrier; happy in stable or living out
- Used to tractors, lorries, dogs, children and general farm hustle and bustle
- Leads nicely off another horse out hacking in all 3 paces
- Happy to wear rugs and tack, has been sat on and walked/trotted around before being turned away
- Was shown in-hand a lot as a youngster; only local shows but always placed or won
Bad points: very few!
- Very green for his age; a perfect blank canvas. He learns quickly, and will soar with someone who can give him consistent training (sadly, I just don’t have time)
- He can be headstrong if he doesn’t understand the question - needs patience, experience and a kind approach to help him thrive. Not suitable for a total novice.
- Can be a bit stubborn to load; he travels perfectly alone or in company. Loads fine when travelling regularly
Looking for someone special to turn this handsome boy into the superstar he is meant to be. Bags of potential - he is so much more than the field ornament he has become. ...Read full description
