14hh 11yo Traditional cob Gelding - currently with mane down to his knees!
Heartbreaking sale of my much loved pony Hercules of over 5 years.
There is not a thing this pony has not done: Hunting, showing, showjumping, XC, fun rides and even being a model at the local art studios. He was also driven in his previous home.
He has attended Equifest 2017/18, and needs no introduction to the showing world. He hasn't been out since last September but I'm sure he won't take long to brush up.
His absolute favourite discipline is hacking, he is absolutely excellent in traffic and has seen everything (he is kept next to a very busy hire yard). He has lived on his own for 4 years so needs no introduction to hacking alone as this is what I mainly do. He can have an occasional 'spook' but nothing nasty. He would be perfectly happy if you just wanted to hack three times a week!
He will never be jumping 80cm courses, however, he gives it his best shot and has done a few working hunter courses which he enjoyed.
He is not your typical 'ploddy' cob and loves to be doing his job so is not suitable for a nervous rider. However a couple of my novice friends have ridden him and he has been great and can tone down if needed.
He can be strong occasionally when out with other horses so I ride him in a Pelham with rounding's for fast work and he comes back to me fine.
He is perfect for the farrier and is shod on his fronts as he does a lot of road work, only fault is that he isn't too keen on his face being clipped. However, with perseverance he is fine.
He travels well in our trailer, I have never travelled him in a lorry but wouldn't see why he wouldn't load.
He has lived out 24/7 since I have had him - even fully clipped (rugged up of course) and still not needed much food!
He is such a lovely genuine lad, he can be nervous at first but once he has gained your trust he will do anything for you. He would make a great teenagers pony, or mother/daughter share! Must go to a 5* home. No time wasters, I just want a hassle free sale where he goes to the best home possible as it is such a hard sale as I just realistically have outgrown him completely.
He will come with his fitted ideal saddle (worth £650), bridle, few rugs and whatever else I have that fits him.
Hundreds of photos and videos available upon request (I am 5ft 6 to get an idea of his size - he is a big chunky boy!).
