Oozing pure quality in his every step, winter stands at 15.2hh, 7 year old, ISH. He is a beautiful model of a horse, uniquely marked and a real head turner.
Winter is such a gentlemen and an absolute pleasure to have on our yard. He is as easy and uncomplicated as you could hope for to do everything with on the ground. From daily yard duties, to clipping, shoeing, teeth, chiropractor, etc - He is a real dream. There is nothing Winter loves more than being fussed over. He turns out either individually, or in a mixed heard of mares and geldings and is never a problem. Easiest horse we own to catch and turn in and out etc.
Forward, flashy, and correct on the flat. Winter works equally on both reins, in a natural outline. Excellent in the mouth, very supple through the back and neck. He is a light and careful mover, beautiful in front with the hock action to go with it. He would easily be getting the 8/9’s in a dressage test, with further production he could be a real dancing superstar.
Winter absolutely loves to jump. He is neat both in front and behind, careful and incredibly brave and courageous. Never ever has this horse ever said no to a fence! Winter has jumped everything there is to see, including water trays, walls, planks, etc. Around a course winter is self sufficient beyond his years! He will correct himself, change legs, and do everything to get his rider out of trouble, not only does he check himself, he will do his best to help the rider when the rider has missed him. Super honest little horse. Currently winter is jumping around course of 80/90/1m. He has popped a few fences of 1.10m , with plenty of boldness, scope, and willingness to go on and on. Winter has been to a four day stay away show and conducted himself beautifully. He was by the far our easiest one to take away with us. We jumped him around the 80cm and he flew around without any questions asked, took everything in his stride and really enjoyed himself. We couldn’t have been anymore pleased with him!!
Out Cross-country, winter is a machine!! Again, he jumps absolutely everything!! In and out of water, up and down steps, straight over ditches, pops hedges and hurdles, remains light in your hands and is more than happy to go around in a collected canter or will step up a gear and get that time for you!! He’s brilliant fun and very reliable.
Winter also loves a good hack!! Main roads, forestry, country lanes, open fields, you name it, the horse will go for you! Winter will go alone and in company, first or last! Very uncomplicated and straight forward. You could stick your Nan or your little ones on for a hack!!
Winter also schools in open spaces and behaves just a obediently as in an arena. Including being ridden amounts to his field buddies!! He is a horse that thrives off work and just loves anything you do with him!!
We feel winter is not for a complete novices simply due to him having a bad experience upon being mounted, the chair snapped as rider went to get on. He isn’t a problem however he needs someone that can be legged you and sit quietly. He is absolutely fine providing the rider mounts empathetic ally. We are more than happy to chat more regarding this upon enquiry.
Winter is such a lovely model of a horse, with a big heart, and bags and bags of potential just waiting to be untapped. We’ve only scratched the surface with this horse, we would love for him to go to a home where someone is going to get him out having fun, and unleashing more of his endless capabilities.
This horse speaks for himself, if he sounds like one for you then please don’t hesitate to come and meet him - he would be around for long!! Winter is open to any vet....Read full description
