Gut wrenching sale of a very special horse. Very exciting prospect for sport or would make a top class hunter.
This wonderful horse has been home bred by a friend In Ireland and is reluctantly offered for sale as she hasn’t the time to compete him herself and wants to see him go and excel. I have had this lad for the past few months as my own personal horse and have fallen head over heels for him and been producing him as a co project with his breeder.
His full breeding is known but not recorded. Only considering selling as he's just matured in to a horse that I have to admit, is a bit big for me! Although he is exceptionally kind I’m just happier on something smaller.
Chatterbox is a very well put together young horse with three very big paces and a scopey jump. He would make a super worker, eventer or pure dressage horse. He is quality through and through. He is a well educated , balanced ride, very polite and a good mover. He hasn’t been rushed or over produced and has been given most of this winter to mature and come in to himself due to my own shoulder injury which has severely hindered my ability to do much more than happy hack, I’m now back riding properly and he’s been out and about ready to get going this season.
He is a natural careful, scopey jumper and has been out to a few training shows and XC schooling jumping round a full set of show jumps straight off at 90cm without a second glance and the same with solid fences. Jumping BN on a ticket BS and would register and be competitive, I see him as a better event horse though. He’s been to one ridden showing show as education and got some lovely comments, but his brain is probably a bit too clever for this job!
We have tried to give him the best all round education possible. He takes everything in his stride and trying his best to please. He is bold and uncomplicated to jump and will definitely move through the grades BE or BD. I can only describe him as like driving a very posh car after being in an old banger.
Hacks alone or in company and very good in traffic. He has hunted a few times this season and been brilliant, very mannerly and enjoyed his job, hunts in a snaffle. He isn’t a silly horse and has a very trainable brain, he loves to work and is a quick learner. In this respect he is certainly not for a novice as he’s far too smart and will quickly amuse himself if given the opportunity, he loves to play the class clown!
He is very much a polite, ladies ride, he has a super soft mouth and is very rideable. He really is lovely, easy to do on the ground and has been well loved. He’s the type of horse you are proud to have and a lovely head over the door and a pet to boot.
Breeder and myself would love to stay in touch and see him excel and we will be fussy as to where he goes as he has a lot of potential and Is quite simply the nicest horse we have both had the pleasure of Breeding/ producing in a long time. He is good to clip, catch, shoe etc. And the most loving horse in the stable.
He has full clean xrays from September 2019.
Plenty of videos, just haven't put them all together yet!
