Okay then guys, grab yourself your beverage of choice (lockdown rules apply don’t forget, no one is going to judge you if it’s a very large G & T), put your feet up and let me tell you all about Bunty!
First of all she is a 15h, 5 yo Irish Cob and is just about the most fun you can have sitting on a horse!
I will say that it’s me riding her in the pics and videos and I’m 5’7, I don’t feel big on her and she takes up your leg well without being too wide.
This wonderful lady hasn’t put a foot wrong since she arrived here from Ireland. She is kind and easy to deal with on the floor, great to catch, stands quietly tied up on the yard, loves a brush and all the attention you can give her, is generally an all round pleasure to have about the place and she is genuine, bonny and up for adventures.
She stands at the mounting block for you to scramble on and is patient while you sort your pedals and knitting out. She hacks out on her own and in company, she is fun and forwards and up for whatever fun activities that you’d like to throw her way. She slots in at the back of the ride happily, trots and canters well without getting competitive, she will also lead the way out and about, there are the odd moments where she needs a bit of guidance but that’s because SHE IS FIVE. Everything she has done here has been done in a snaffle.
She lives in or out, goes out with mares and geldings, leads in from the field in a bunch happily, is cheap to run and is on straw and dry hay.
She has been great with all the traffic, bikes, large farm machinery etc we have here, if you click on the links you can watch the video of her with all the Kerrie Fleming Horses paraphernalia, umbrellas, unicorns etc.
She loads beautifully and arrived after her journey from Ireland looking like she had just been for a jolly a few miles down the road. She works very nicely in the school, she is definitely not a kick-a-long cob, she has a swinging walk, a spanking trot and a lovely, balanced, comfy canter but she does need a confident rider as she is forwards, this would unnerve someone who was not wanting to embrace a fun life!
There is absolutely not a bad bone in her body, when she is older she will be a schoolmaster type but at the moment SHE IS FIVE. She doesn't get tense or silly, there are times in the trot when you have to steady her up, she doesn’t hold it against you when you take a pull, a capable, confident jockey will find nothing disconcerting about her but she’s too forward for a nervous or novice rider. She has a super pop over a fence, either on the XC or over coloured fences, she jumps ditches, steps, water, fillers, water trays etc, she is happy to trot or canter in, which ever you ask her to do but she does like to get on with it!
I haven’t hunted her but she will have hunted in Ireland and I’d say she would be fab, bold and huge fun (perhaps going up a notch or two in the brakes department!)
This wonderful girl doesn’t get tense or silly or naughty but please, DO NOT call me about her if you are looking for something to build up your own confidence, DO NOT call if you want to plod round the countryside at a snails pace (lots of people do, I applaud them but this mare is too good for that) DO NOT call me if you are going to come and see her and then say that you want something a bit older, DO NOT call me if you think you are a lot better rider than you actually are!!
I apologise (sort of, not really) for being blunt, but Bunty is too nice and kind to be trawling round the school endlessly trying to find her perfect new pal.
That pal will be as follows..... Either someone who is looking for a little horse/partner in crime to buzz around the place on, who wants a something that is fun and forwards, someone who understands that she will need help occasionally from a rider who is confident and capable enough to show her the way and teach her the finer points of life (all the basics are there), and/or someone who knows that if you are buying a 5yo, regardless of how genuine they are, they ARE going to need further education and someone who knows that if you want to progress with dressage (which she will, I’ve found the majority of judges LOVE a bit of feather on a horse doing a correct, well managed test) then you have to be able to ride from your leg to your hand and use half halts to allow her to work steadily and correctly.
In return she will be a great friend who is a pleasure to spend time with, who canters across the field to you when you go to catch her, who has just the right amount of character, who looks super smart with her flying feathers (equally I think she would be stunning clipped out and hogged, I’m happy to do that for her new owner once she is paid for! ) who loves to jump and makes a good shape over a fence, who would love to go and do all Pony Club/Riding Club activities, clinics, shows, events, fun rides, hacking and anything else you can think of.
She is a fabulous little lady, I adore her
Bunty is based here at Rabson Manor with me, SN4 9QF, please call/What’s App me on 07888675300, that is definitely the best way to get hold of me.
£4450 will buy this fab little horse, she was 5 stage vetted when I bought her, her vaccinations are up to date, her teeth have been done and she is currently unshod behind.
Here are a ton of links to her iCloud photo album with about a million photos, all her videos of what she has been up to since she has been with me and videos of her trotting up and loading in a 3.5ton and 7.5ton lorry
And now I’M going to get a stiff drink. I thank you
