  • Grey
  • Gelding
  • 8 years
  • 14.3 hands
  • A good all rounder
  • Loves to jump
  • Enjoys to hack out

14.2hh Irish Cob cross, 8 year old gelding. He is a good all rounder. He loves to work and thrives on a routine. He really enjoys to hack out, he can be a little nervous on his own and look at things a bit more, but he's fab in company, always safe and sensible.

He's working very well in the school. He would however benefit from a kind and sympathetic rider, to continue his schooling work. He loves to jump, he has seen all sorts of different fillers, spreads and cross country jumps. He has been out to competitions and done very well, but I would say he is still a little green and needs more experience in order for him to gain more confidence.

I would love to find him a home with a kind, sensitive,knowledgeable adult or teenager. He is really lovely to handle, he loves human attention. I feel he would suit a small quite yard, rather than a busy yard with lots going on.

He is really good with the farrier, vet, dentist, traffic, bikes, trailer or lorry.

He is a very kind and genuine chap, who only ever wants to please. I want him to find him a forever home with the right person, so they can develop together. I have owned him for a year, but sadly due to work and family commitments I really don't have enough time to devote to him. I really love him, although I feel he is wasted with me.

He is at home with me, so I am in no hurry to see him go, I want to make sure I find a good home for him.

He is up to date with his vaccinations and has just been seen by a chiropractor.

He currently only has shoes on the front, he is a good doer and happy to live in or out.
