    Brightling, East Sussex

    Irish Sports Horse
    8 years old
    Proven hunter with the potential and foundations to event.

    Hunted in Ireland
    Hunted with ESRM (South East England)
    Hunted with Coakham Bloodhound (South East England)

    Started schooling in his current home, proving very willing, and a quick learner. Goes in an outline in all three paces. His canter does need work as he’s a big horse and needs to learn to collect a bit more if he was to go out and compete above prelim. Has regular dressage lessons with me and has huge potential in this area.

    Free schools over jumps beautifully showing a scopy, careful jump, and has been jumped in the school for fun. Again, he would make a fantastic show jumper if this is what his new owner would like to do. He’s not phased by much!

    Hacked alone and in company in previous home, and hacked in hand in current home so still getting out and seeing traffic. I personally don’t like hacking so this is something that would have to be reintroduced as he hasn’t been ridden on a hack for 6 months. As I say he was hacked regularly in his previous home and he was excellent so there’s no reason he couldn’t hack again in his new home.

    Whiskey is a sharp, forward going horse who is quick to learn. He does need an experienced rider as he isn’t a plod along/schoolmaster. That being said, he is extremely talented with masses of potential so could go very far with the right rider.

    He can be slightly nervous with new riders, but all he does is tense and will relax as you get going. He has spooked and bucked with someone once but has never done this with myself or my instructor. I do not think this would be an issue with an experienced rider but I would rather be honest and tell you it has happened once before.

    He would not tolerate novice riding. He needs someone confident and competent with experience of sharp horses, so I will request that I have a chat with anyone wanting to view to ensure you could be the right rider as I don’t want to waste your time or mine!

    He’s the easiest horse on the ground. Perfect to catch, loads and travels perfectly, perfect to clip, teeth etc, fine turned out individually or as a group.

    He’s a really special horse and I absolutely adore his personality. He has immense ability to go far in any discipline, particularly eventing, but needs the right rider. He doesn’t have his breeding recorded. He passed a 5 stage vetting 6/7 months ago and I’d be happy for another one to be carried out.

    Reason for sale is that as my first own horse, he is a bit too much for me and I cannot bring out his full potential through winter as I am at school full time and do not have lights in the sand school. It’s not fair for me to keep plodding around the school at weekends when he could be out competing and hunting and having so much fun! He is my first horse and I’ve just over-horsed myself but for an amateur or a professional he would be fantastic! In addition I have just applied for university so will be leaving soon anyway.

    Reduced from £5000 to £4500 if sold before Christmas!
