Full up 16.3 Grade A reg ID gelding ,full green book 11 yrs old looking for 5* home
Fox has been in the same home since brought over from breeder in Ireland as a 4yr old.
He has been a valued member of the family and has been used mainly for hunting, show jumping, working hunter and pleasure rides.
Schools up to novice level at home working well on the flat showing promise to work towards higher levels. Would compete at BD with ease but this has not been the riders interest. Fox is willing and keen in the school despite this. Has correct balanced paces and maintains a soft and light contact.
Fox has claimed many titles on the show jumping circuit and is currently jumping discovery and would BS with ease. He is keen and honest into a fence and will take any rider over fences at any stride without questions. Careful and rarely knocks a pole will do jump off turns on a sixpence. Confident on grass and a surface and never phased by fillers, water trays or buzzy environments. This horse is a rosette machine and is always in the ribbons.
Well seasoned hunter, careful and steady across country. Comfortable with hounds and stands in the field. Always hunts in a snaffle never getting strong. Happily goes up front but equally happy behind. Jumps all ditches, bushes and walls without question. Sure footed and safe.
Fox has also had success in the show ring at county level. He has shown in hunter classes and working hunter. He has been ridden in a double bridle and always gives a ride judge a polite, responsive ride with this being commented on by all who have sat on him. Would do extremely well going further in this aspect of his career. This is backed up by his pedigree which includes Golden Trump and Huntingfield Rebel, both of which are impeccable examples of the ID breed which is reflected in his conformation and movement.
Fox has attended pleasure rides and regularly hacks alone and in company. Nothing phases him, passing traffic, market stalls and even stopping off for a pint at the local pub where he is always welcomed. Well known locally by all. He opens gates and goes through water, waits patiently at roads. Can be ridden by anyone, has been ridden by all the family, from toddlers up to granny’s.
Keen over XC fences and Fox will excel in this discipline which makes him an ideal candidate to compete BE. He is a versatile horse with many strings to his ribbon and is looking for a more varied home.
He stands all day to be groomed and fussed with, including clipping, bathing, and for the farrier. Loads and travels with ease in a trailer. Have never tried him in a wagon but can’t see this being an issue. This horse has never been lame, sick or sorry and has only seen the vet for routine visits including vaccinations and teeth which are all up to date.
Most importantly, our priority for Fox is a five star home and we would want nothing more than to see him give another family all the enjoyment he has given us. He is one of a million, no other out there will be the same.
