Vandir Smokey Joe -
Joe is a 15.2/3 coloured sports horse cross (fine type)
He is currently 8 Years young!!
Joe has low mileage but has been there and seen it all!
Not his strongest currently but has lovely movements to ride too and watch and will certainly get the scores with continued schooling.
Joe will jump anything you throw at him, he has seen fillers jumped up to 1M (not affiliated) couldn't promise the odd filler wouldn't throw him to have a look as these are unpredictable animals but after a look he would certainly jump if with a confident rider who wouldn't back off.
Cross country -
This horse LOVES cross country water doesn't phase him or any fences for that matter. he has been Cross country schooling 2 times and never stopped once and they are the only times he has been so shows he really is a honest horse!!! struggled with the skinnies but didn't stop just didn't have the lines but that is due to experience.
Joe has been hunting for a whole season a year ago. The perfect hunter he just follows the crowd, he can get strong and throw the odd excitement buck but nothing that would unseat you. and can be a bit fidgety at the meet as he is quite a fine horse I think it was coldness as he wasn't being naughty just wanted to walk. but has jumped ditches and smaller fences (not the most confident hunting jockey)
Bombproof in traffic and all machinery, has lived on a farm and used to all smells and noises and loves a blast on the stubble will have a little jog but easy enough to sit to on the buckle he wont run off he knows where his bread is buttered.
Joe really is a sweetheart and learns VERY quickly which comes good and bad. he had learnt to nap out hacking was just a spin to go home and the rider was very small and hacked alone so just got off. He just needs everything to be black and white what is good and bad but this isn't a problem now as he just needs to be busier then a happy hack.
you can ask this horse anything and he will give it his best shot and then come out better. it would be great to see him do a bit of everything with someone as he just loves to work and do different stuff. He wouldn't suit being a happy hacker as he would just get bored doing it everyday. Loads first time.
All vacs up to date has just had it done, feet just been done, teeth done in april,
Very sad sale of a much loved horse but he deserves to go out and do what he does best.
