    Very sad sale of this beautiful genuine boy. Alfie is a 14hh traditional heavyweight cob. He has been schooled weekly with a professional instructor and has three lovely paces. He has really excelled in dressage, always placing top 3, scores in 60's. Never bothers about warm up ring or banners/flowers/boards in arenas.


    He is more of a kick along than pull back, has good breaks out in the open, hacks out lovely never does anything silly, if something does catch his eye he has a little look and then carries on his merry way. He doesn't feel the need to be up at the front or has to keep up, he's happy to do his own thing, he does love hacking. He also enjoys jumping, I'm not really that keen but he has a bold brave jump and will take me over easily.

    He also does very well in showing, he always has lovely comments. Wherever he goes he always places and has lots of rosettes to his name.

    He's a very quick learner, after only a few attempts he learnt to leg yield, shoulder in etc. In the right hands he could go far and at only 8 yrs he's got lots more time to move up through the levels.

    He's very sweet on the ground, loves kisses and cuddles. He has such a big character he is very sociable (nosy) and likes to know what you are doing, he makes me laugh all the time.

    Never sick or sorry, never had reason to call the vet, very hardy and low maintenance. I've never clipped him, he has always been out 'au natural'. With me he goes out at night and in during the day in summer and opposite in winter. He can live alone or in a herd, he's very easy with whatever.

    Alfie loads and travels well on trailer, van or lorry. Good to catch, trim, wash. He's a very good boy around children, I have three daughters, he's good around dogs and farm machinery. He walks through our busy farm yard and doesn't bat an eyelid. Snaffle mouthed at all times.

    Genuine reason for sale, it hasn't been easy to come to this decision and I'm very sad but he's still got so much to give and he deserves more.

    I have been his main rider, I would call myself a competent novice, he has been ridden by kids and is also currently being ridden by a 13 year old girl. As long as you start off as you mean to go on he is a good boy, he can be stubborn in the school, but as long as you tell him he's fine! Nothing nasty at all.

    Have loads of photos and videos of him, message me for more. Will come with all tack including recently re-fitted saddle.

    Price negotiable for the right home.
