    Alfie is a 16.3hh grey gelding. He is a proper old school Irish sports horse. Sort hard to find. He has a fabulous trainable temperament. Very bold. Good balanced, rhythmacal paces. He's 4 yrs old but rides more like a 6 yr old. 


    I have been training Alfie for the past 3 months. His flat work is established. He goes in an easy outline, excellent rhythm, fabulous canter transitions. Even in the rein. Just started to sit in the canter. Holds his own canter and will happily canter around and around without being strong. Nicely off the leg.

    Alfie is a bold jumper. Doesn't look at fillers. Been schooling several times proving very bold and competed in clear round, jumping clear. He was an angel in the warm up around the other horses. Went straight into the indoor school, not spooky, didn't notice the mirrors etc. Happy to go away from the other horses or be left at the lorry. 

    Alfie has hunted in Ireland and done some Hunter trials. He would make a fabulous Hunter. We've taken him xc schooling, went through water, popped a ditch and some logs. Ready now to do more which I will do if he hasn't sold.
    Alfie has now competed in some combined training. He was amazingly behaved both in the warm up and in the ring. Wasn't at all phased by the white boards. Did a super test and a lovely clear round to finish 4th.

    He loves hacking. Will lead or follow. He's been out on his own a couple of times. Not strong. Great in traffic.

    Alfie is by Watermill Swatch (an approved Tb stallion. No.1 living sire of both 4yr olds and older horses sold at public auction 2016.) Out of Clooneen Princess (a class 1 ID mare.) He came over from Ireland 3 months ago with the aim of producing him and selling him on to start his competitive career.

    Alfie is a very sound type. Good legs and feet. He came with a 5 star vets cert. My vets has also looked at him and really rates him. He's had teeth and physio done and all looks good. Vaccinated. Good to catch, shoe and load. Lovely chap to be around. Lives in or out. No vices. 

    In my opinion Alfie would make a lovely horse for someone. He would be suitable for a keen amateur to event or a more experienced rider to take through the grades. He would make a fantastic Hunter too. Doesn't hot up and not a spooky type. Will switch off and stand happily. Excellent stamina.
