Tummery Forest Flame is a 10-year-old 15,3hh dark bay gelding out of Clover Hill.
He has done a bit of everything so far. For the first few years of his life he hunted in Ireland before going to a riding school for 2 years in the UK which is where I bought him from a year ago as a mother/daughter share. I was looking for a safe, sane forward going pony and he was perfect.
He is easy to do in all ways. He will load onto anything, have his teeth done, stand alone for the farrier and clips without any problems. he really is the easiest horse to handle. He lives out in the summer and daily turnout in the winter. He is a good doer and lives on haylage alone for most of the year.
He schools well on the flat and is quick to learn. He responds well to aids and can work in a nice outline with the right rider. He has been to shows and doesn’t fizz up.
He can jump around 1m and will jump anything you point him at but neither I or my daughter are brave enough so will need working back up to this level but he loves jumping
He will hack in the heaviest of traffic and machinery and nothing fazes him. However, he doesn’t like to go alone. He is happiest when he is in company, either a person walking or another horse as he has spent his life in the company of other horses. I have managed to get him out on his own and walk around the farm but he was spooky. Because of his nature, I believe this may improve with time and practice but it needs to be taken into consideration and is reflected in the price.
He is a push button, safe, forward ride but can get strong when jumping and in canter and this has dented my daughter’s confidence which is the main reason for selling. She isn't very confident and has only just come off of a kick along cob so he was a bit too much of a jump for her. For me, a confident novice, he is perfect.
He has no vices, never bucked or reared. He is an honest pony that will make an ideal second pony for a confident teen or adult.
