    Very handsome show jumping gelding 13.2 h welsh B


    We have owned Gus (thistledown angus)for 18 months and will be very sad to see him go. I bought him for my daughter when she was 13yrs. We had a a cob 14.2 who was 26years that she rode prior to Gus, she did no have many riding lessons and pretty much learnt on this cob out hacking. In that sense he was her second pony but it was just to point out that she did not have a huge amount of experience. She has learnt so much on Gus, I would say although he is not a first pony he only requires a rider who has learnt walk trot and canter. He is forward going but not strong, jess has taken him out on many hacks alone and meeting her friends in the forest. Heis fine in open spaces and has never bolted and she has always been able to stop him. He can get excited sometimes does a prancing trot walk. He is fine on the road when hacking its 20mins roadwork and there are many cyclists that go past in groups. He has worked past tractors and the field that he lives in tractors go up and down everyday. She has done lots of schooling flatwork with him and jumping is his forter. We have taken him to many shows and although at the first one he was very impatient being tired us he has completely relaxed in going to different places. In all but 1 Gus has placed in the jumping classes. He has been to arenas with flags, fillers pod cameras and has never spooked. When you first get on him he does just want to get going but he settles down really quickly.He lives out with only natural shelter with other mares without any problems, just on grass for the summer. He is easy to catch usually comes to you in the field. He is barefoot and is trimmed. He loads and travels in a Ifor Williams, when we went to the first show we had difficulty loading him and needed some help. After that we practiced loading several times in a row, we clipped the lounge line on the side of the trailor and brought it behind his bum by the third time we did not need the lounge line as he worked straight, we have been to many shows and he is no problem loading. He has never had any health problems and has never been lame. We are only selling him as my daughter has grown taller and wants to move onto a horse. We can sell him with 1 heavy wt rug with neck, 1 no fill rug, a fleece rug, bridle and martingale. We are selling him for 3000, I have passport.

    We have a brand new saddle in Jan 2017, thorogood which was £500 (have the receipt) which was fitted with a saddlefitter which we could sell as a separate price.
