Dark BayGelding16 handsIrish Sports Horse
Harry (Harry’s a Cruising) is a stunning 16h, 6 year old Irish Sports Horse (ISH) with Cruising bloodlines. He is an incredibly handsome horse, with a fantastic conformation, he truly is a great stamp of a horse & a beautiful model!
Harry has impeccable stable manners. He is easy to do & loves attention & fuss. He will happily stand to be groomed, tacked up or hosed, he has also been clipped.
Harry readily works in a natural outline & is very free-flowing with his actions. He is quick to learn & is developing excellent paces. As Harry is still green, he can occasionally be a little sharp (through nervousness, rather than maliciousness), he is therefore not a novice ride, so requires a competent & sensitive rider to give him the confidence he needs. Given time & further confidence, he will excel in any discipline & has been doing well at Prelim level dressage.
Harry has popped a few jumps, proving to be bold & has plenty of scope for further improvement. We haven’t spent much time developing his jumping, as we have predominantly been concentrating on his flatwork. Harry also benefits from being exercised regularly & enjoys solving things. He likes to please & enjoys the praise.
Harry is up to date with his worming & injections & is great with the farrier, vet & dentist. Harry travels well in a trailer (he has not travelled on a lorry with us, but I am sure he would take this in his stride). He travels on his own or with company.
Harry is always easy to catch and comes to a whistle. He happily hacks out alone or in company & has no preferences as to whether he goes first or last. He is good with dogs, people & traffic & often sees farm vehicles.
Harry is open for any vetting & will come with his tack & some rugs.
Harry needs an experienced home to realise his full potential to enable him to become the incredible horse we know he can be. This is a very sad sale & therefore a 5 star loving home will be essential.
