very sad sale of murphy
17hh irish 12yo grey horse
murphy is a lovely, polite horse with a want to please attitude.
he has hunted the hounds for the OSB&WKH for the last three seasons and has been ridden in the field and is a saint with both. a bit stronger in the field as you can imagine but nothing too hard to handle at all. he will jump absolutely anything put in front of him and hunting is his passion. he stands like a rock at the meet and in the field.
he hacks alone and in company at the front or back and can also be led from another horse.
he would also make a decent event horse for the right rider he would do anything between 80-100 and may go higher but he’d be happier at this level. his only issue would be the fact he has quite a hard mouth. he is ridden in a snaffle at all time but can sometimes be a bit stubborn when accepting the contact. if you work through it he gives in quickly and makes a lovely shape. he has three correct and very smooth paces.
he has taken place in hound parades at shows and wasn’t phased, hunter trials, the scurry, gate jumping, clear round shows and been to the beach amongst much more.
overall, murphy is an all-round superstar. he loves life and loves a job. the minute he understands what is being asked of him he is ears pricked wanting to go on.
he’s not for a novice or beginner as he likes going out and doing things and the more he does the better he gets and would love a hunting life and/or a bit of low level eventing.
he will not go to anyone and homes will be vetted!!!
