    Introducing Dougal


    Dougal is a stunning 15hh 14 yr old grey cob x gelding

    Dougal is a very genuine gelding, kind, easy type, who tries his hardest to please.

    We sold Dougal in January to a lovely family who adore him and want the best home for him, unfortunately his 14yr old rider required a more push button ride for jumping so they came to the hard decision to sell Dougal as she had exams coming up and wanted a jumping pony , he was sold to a lovely lady for hacking, unfortunately for Dougal after 4 weeks this home was decided to be unsuitable as he was to forward going for his new owner and was in the owners opinion not a novice hack for a nervous rider as she said he did nap with her when hacking alone. We however have found him to be an amazing hack and happily goes out alone or in company first or last or happily goes out with 6 other horses and is sensible, We have and novices hack him and he has been as good as gold a really reliable ride. We would not describe him as forward and he has never even thought to nap with us.

    In the school – Dougal works well in the school in a natural soft outline, he tries his hardest to please his rider. We would not describe him as more push forward than pull back, he does what is asked of him, He had not done much schooling when he came to us as his previous home (November 2017) as had used him for hacking. In his new home (Janurary 2018) he attended pony club and did lots of hacking and an all-round pleasure horse for a 14 yr old rider.

    Jumping - Dougal has a nice little pop and happily jumps around a course of 85cm coloured or rustic jumps, he does not pull or rush his rider. He will take you into a fence without rushing but give his rider a good feeling he is willing and committed. On landing he is sane and sensible and can easily be pulled up or ridden on to next fence. We have jumped him around 1m here but would need further schooling to do a course of a metre, he hs jumped bigger but single fences.

    Cross Country - Dougal has been cross country training with us and proved bold and brave over tiger traps, ditches, tyres, logs and gone through water. He does pick up a gear here so would need a competent rider to get the best out of him as he proves to be at his best when rider is encouraging, he was ridden in a plain snaffle… He was easy to pull up when asked and well mannered, just wanted to do his job as enjoyed it!

    Out hacking - Dougal hacks alone or in company, first or last. He has hacked around small country lanes with tractors and trailers, he has hacked up the main road passed Lorries and log wagons with no problems, alone or in company (as videos show) ., He has been a pleasure to have on the yard. After his most recent owner decided to sell him, he was put on sales livery for 6 weeks, where his advert said he was used to nanny/lead for their young horses and was good to hack alone and in company.

    Fields - Dougal has been good in open spaces and loves a good canter around our 100 acres he has great breaks, he is also happy to school in open fields and can be pulled up anytime. Dougal is snaffle mouthed at all times!

    Handling – Dougal is easy to handle on the ground, is good to catch in and turn out. Happy to pick up all feet ect and very good to clip… We have loaded him happily into our trailer here but is difficult to load onto a 3.5tonne little lorry. We do believe he could take advantage of a nervous person on the ground, he has a lovely personality and adores fuss, he is beautiful inside and out. If Dougal is not loaded for awhile he can get stubborn to load, however we have no issues loading him and travel him alone and in company in an 511 trailer. We are told Dougal took 3 to 4 weeks to settle in to his new home when he left us so it is likely this will be the same when he finds his permeant loving home. He deserves this as is a lovely horse. In the home we sold Dougal to he lived with 3 ponies, we are told while settling in did not like the ponies being taken away from field and leaving him alone but was happy to be taken away from them and hacked, he settled in and was fine after a few weeks and was then, we are told happy to be left. His most recent owner had one other horse and in the 4 weeks she had him got attached to other horse (mare) as only 1 other horse there (this may be why his owner found he napped). She tells us setted very well on sales livery yard and in fairness settled here again no issues.

    Who would Dougal suit? We think he would be a fun, reliable hunter, a horse for schooling, riding club, hunt rides a all rounder.

    Dougal is up to date with his vaccinations, he passed a vetting when he left us in January and also passed a 5 stage vetting 6 weeks before we purchased him,

    Dougal does NOT come with any tack as he uses are horses, however tack can be arranged and fitted. No loans, LWVTB or payment plans.
    open to any vettings / trainers / instructors
