Irish Sports Horse Chestnut Gelding 6 years 16.2 hands
'Benson' is a 6 year old chestnut Irish Sports Horse 16.2 hands.
We have owned him for around 9 months but he is proving to be too big a commitment to give him the experience he needs to excel - this is no fault or reflection on the horse but rather us being naive in what was required for a young horse. We really don't want the horse to go to waste so we have taken the difficult decision to move him on now while he is still young enough to fulfil his potential elsewhere.
He has lovely flowing movement and positive comments are always directed his way whenever anyone sees him being schooled.
He has not been out and done anything due to the current Covid-19 crisis.
He is currently being brought back into work by our yard manager who is very experienced in bringing young horses on. He has made excellent progress in a short space of time and we will continue with his development program until we can find him a new suitable home.
He is not a novice ride as he needs to be given confidence by his rider as he can be a little spooky from time to time. This is something that my wife struggles with due to a bad fall from a previous horse.
We have several videos available at the moment and will be able to supply more later this week. See YouTube for more videos:
He is good with farrier, dentist, vet etc. We have not travelled him at all since we got him although he did travel fine when we collected him in our trailer. He is up to date with vaccinations and teeth.
He has very good breeding lines and comes with a green Irish Sports Horse passport.
The price reflects the lack of experience this horse has so no time wasters please with silly offers as these will not be entertained....Read full description
