WANTED 15hh - 16hh Gelding, Allrounder

Lifetime Home for Horse of a Lifetime!

Ref #: 175056
  • Gelding only please; sorry we cannot have a mare
  • Must have impeccable manners in all situations
  • 5* experienced, lifetime home for the right horse
  • Gelding only please; sorry we cannot have a mare
  • Must have impeccable manners in all situations
  • 5* experienced, lifetime home for the right horse

I am looking for a sensible little horse for hunting and low level competition, to join our happy team of horses and ponies who live a varied and fun life and are members of the family.

The right horse will be a proper small middleweight stamp (or erring towards LW cob), with established paces on the flat in a school, steady and rhythmical in to a fence, and a clean but economical jumper, able to jump SJ and XC at 2' 6", put in a tidy prelim dressage test, and give an enjoyable day's hunting by standing whenever required, jumping the timber, going first or last without pulling. He doesn't need to be a world beater at anything other than being mannerly and nice to do. He must be good to load, travel and take out and about both alone and with others. He'll probably be part Irish Draft, or even full Irish Draft. He could be any age, depending on price and health record, and the ideal size is around 15.2h, give or take a couple of inches either way.

The right horse won't be one that is super-talented, has masses of scope, gives every fence an extra foot, has extravagant movement and tackles vast hedges and gates or one that needs a huge amount of work on arrival at a competition. Equally, he won't be a kick-along plod. He definitely won't be any sort of blood horse or continental warmblood, and he won't be a heavy cob.

Individual needs, things to be managed, etc. not necessarily objected to. If the horse can do his job I'm open-minded with regard to the outcome of a vetting or other manageable issues. We have huge experience of all types and sizes of horses and ponies, but this little horse needs to fit a specific role, ready-made, and needs to be straightforward about his work.

Flexible budget, but not unlimited, so may not be a money-maker for someone, but definitely a lovely lifetime home for a horse that someone cares a lot about.

Contact by email in the first instance, with link to photo and / or video, thank you
