    8 year old, 15.1hh smart cob gelding.


    Welsh Section D x Traditional Cob

    I have owned Fergus since he was 6 months old. This is a very sad sale due to personal circumstances. Fergus has been brought on carefully and allowed time to mature physically, and is “low mileage” for an eight-year-old. I have had a lot of fun with him, doing a bit of most things. If you want an honest and straightforward horse to have plenty of fun with, he will deliver. He is ridden in a loose ring snaffle (no martingale etc) for everything. He is a comfortable and balanced ride, with three good paces. He is a sporty build of cob, with enough substance to carry weight and to compete as a cob / hunter, but without being heavy himself.

    Fergus has competed at Intro and Prelim dressage, going out to a range of different venues and generally scoring in the mid-sixties. He has also done some in-hand and ridden showing, and has always been placed. He is easy to take out competing, will stand quietly on the trailer before and after riding, and doesn’t get wound up by the behaviour of other horses around him.

    Fergus enjoys hacking and is a sensible and enjoyable ride. He will hack alone or in company. He is used to riding on roads, bridle tracks and through fields. He is fine with traffic, pedestrians, bicycles, etc. In company, he will go in front or behind and he doesn’t hot up or get silly. You can canter him somewhere and then walk him in the same place the next time with no fuss.

    He enjoys pole work and jumping, and jumps round courses of fences smoothly. He has had a play on a couple of cross-country courses, jumping logs / simple fences and going through water.

    Fergus can be worked every day or left and then picked up again. On occasions, I have not ridden him for a week, then gone to a competition on the weekend, and he has been the same as when he is ridden regularly.

    Fergus has had his teeth checked by the dentist every 6 months, and has also had regular checks by the physio / osteopath. He has always been fully vaccinated and always been on a vet-approved worming programme. He has good strong feet, and has never thrown a shoe. He is open to vetting.

    He happily lives in or out – he has done everything from living out 24/7 to being stabled for 20 hours and just turned out for a few hours a day. He is no different to ride or handle whatever turnout routine he’s on. He has been turned out in groups and in an individual paddock. He is good to catch, bath, clip and shoe. He has never been known to crib / weave / windsuck / box-walk.

    £3,500 including bridle and rugs.
    Saddle is also available at an additional cost – a professionally fitted WOW Flair saddle suitable for all disciplines, which is only a few months old. Ideally, I would like his saddle to go with him, as he seems very comfortable in it, so the price of the saddle would be negotiable.

    Please call for more details – - Phone number removed - I want to find the right home for Fergus so will happily tell you more about him and I would like to know a bit about you too. If I’m not able to answer your call, please leave me a voicemail or text me your name and number, and I will call you back as soon as possible.
