All vaccines and teeth up to date and he has been professionally broken and ridden . He loves his work and is so chilled kind and loving .

Looking forward for him to see hounds over the Xmas period .

So easy to catch shoe box and clip . He is not phased by traffic unfriendly cows and jack Russell’s

What a super show prospect for next year and the model of horse so rare in Ireland

He is a lovely light balanced ride and with such an uphill extending trot he will be one for the judges to watch

Much loved Smart Lightweight Cob.

Suitable for all the family, has been ridden by my novice 12yo niece on the beach, my sister who hasn’t ridden since having a family and my friend who is an Advanced Medium Dressage rider, all adore him and he goes according to his rider.

Never silly or stupid, regularly used as an escort for young & excitable horses, is not affected by other horses playing up / galloping off! Doesn’t need riding every day, is the same whether riding daily or monthly!

Pleasure to ride in school, understands walk - canter, mediums and learning lateral work. Goes in snaffle or double bridle. Loves polework / cavalleti / jumping and XC schooling.

Has Hunted, done hunt rides, beach rides etc… goes first or last. Well behaved in open spaces and regularly escorted small children & ponies and excitable competition horses to the beach / around farm. Would be great hunt secretary’s horse and I’m sure he would carry a side saddle too.

Hacks alone / in company. Not spooky / silly. Good to clip, shoe, load, travel, bath etc…

Had a couple of small sarcoids removed by laser in Dec 2020, these have not returned and very unlikely to now as over a year ago. They never affected his Performance or good looks, they were purely cosmetic!

He is a sort very hard to find, not only is he a great example of a Show Cob but he is also safe & sensible. A real character on the yard who will be much missed, sad sale due to lack of time. Fit & ready for his new home.

No time wasters / joy riders. Serious enquiries only.

Top Class Maxi Cob

Wolf Of Wall Street

Ref #: 269424
  • 1st & Champion Coloured - Westmorland County Show
  • King Of The Ring Qualified - CHAPS Scottish Regional
  • Placed In his first HOYS Qualifiers
£15,000 ovno
  • Cob
  • Coloured
  • Gelding
  • 6 years
  • 16.1 hands
  • 1st & Champion Coloured - Westmorland County Show
  • King Of The Ring Qualified - CHAPS Scottish Regional
  • Placed In his first HOYS Qualifiers

I have owned Jordy since he was three years old in which time he has been brought on slowly and correctly, allowing him time to mature and fill in to his big frame.

Jordy has been ridden at home by a variety of people including our apprentices and my mum.

That said he is not a novice ride and does need a quite and confident rider to bring out the best in him. He is a sensitive boy and takes a lot from his rider, but in no way is he sharp or silly.

Hacks out a dream, fantastic in open spaces and loves to pop a jump. Has been on plenty of farm/ fun riders and has always been snaffle mouthed.

He has been lightly but successfully shown, with brilliant feedback from judges. He contended his first season last year with placings in the few HOYS qualifiers he did.

Jordy is a gent to handle on the ground and is never strong or silly, loads and travels well and will stand all day on the wagon. He is up to date with teeth, vaccinations and worming and has been checked regularly by our onsite physio. His biggest downside is his fear of the farrier and he does currently have to be sedated in order to have his feet done, I am happy to discuss this further with any potential buyers.

Jordy is with a doubt a top HOYS prospect or would equally make a fantastic allrounder for someone to have great fun on.

Absolutely heartbreaking sale but buying my first home forces his sale. Home is very important to me so please don't be offended if I feel he is not right for you.


Exciting Maxi Cob / Top Class All-Rounder Prospect

  • Buckskin

  • 4 years

  • Exceptionally Sweet Natured - Weight Carrier
  • Maxi Cob - Hunter - Family All Rounder
  • Straight & Correct Movement - Very Light on Feet

Bambi is an exceptional young cob, rising 4 this year (August) - currently unbroken

Standing at approx 16hh with a leg in each corner, Bambi is an incredibly exciting prospect for Maxi Cob classes. Equally I feel she would make a super all rounder for the whole family in the future. She has a very kind and sweet nature and is a pleasure to have around, respectful of your space and not the bolshy rude sort. In no way is she at all marish and is very good with other horses.

Her movement is straight and correct and she is incredibly light on her feet for a big girl. She would also be a super mare to breed from in the future.

Bambi was bred in Ireland and I have owned her since she was 2, her breeding is not recorded.

Well handled and has been left to be a baby and mature out in the field, now coming in during the night and out in the day although would happily live out all year round if required.

Good to handle and loves a fuss and would stand for hours being groomed.

Has seen traffic and unphased and has also been in both a trailer & lorry with me when moving yards/fields. A typical cob who will do pretty much anything for a bit of feed.

I am looking for a knowledgable & experienced home where Bambi can continue to flourish and make someone incredibly happy.

Bambi will be beginning her education shortly if not snapped up and her price will increase accordingly.

Up to date with vaccinations, dentist (wolf teeth removed), worming and farrier.

Serious enquiries only from 10* homes for this super mare.
