PLEASE READ THE FULL ADVERT!
A sad sale of this incredibly loved horse - Nigel has been privately owned within a busy sales yard and is not getting the time he both deserves and needs.
Nigel has hunted two full seasons with the EDH and joint meets with the Taunton Vale. He has also visited with the SFH. He has also hunted in Ireland. He has proven to be an exceptional hunter, stands beautifully at a meet, good with hounds. He can be slightly jolly at the start of the season but it’s certainly short lived! He is snaffle mouthed at all times.
Nigel has been used as a hunter and pleasure horse / hacking. He is used to lead young and inexperienced horses out for the sales yard and regularly “nannies.” He is a fabulous hack - he is good in heavy traffic and open spaces. He has done very little arena work and would be green in his flatwork due to personally having no interest. He has been XC schooling a handful of times, to the beach multiple times & on various moorland / common rides.
He is currently in work and he will continue to increase his fitness for the season ahead - viewings welcomed, can be viewed hacking.
Nigel does have a mild shiver and can be difficult to pick up his feet, it has NEVER been a problem to him and only proves an issue when he is shod, he is sedated for his shoes to make the experience easier for him and the farrier. When in full fitness he has hunted two days a week - he has never taken a lame step whilst with us. Our farrier is happy to discuss him with his next owner / farrier if required.
He has wonderful ground manners, turns out with mares and geldings and is a pleasure to have around. Lives in or out.
When in full work he is ridden out by confident novice family members however he is not suitable for a novice only home.
Price has been reduced as home is more important than price & needing to reduce numbers for the winter. A seriously quality horse that without the above would be priced at a strong five figures!!!
A five star home is paramount for this much loved horse, it’s a very regrettable sale - please do not contact if you’re not happy with any of the above.
