15.1hh (to mature 15.3hh) rising 4yo registered ISH gelding with full Irish Draught breeding Cappa Emperor x Fast Silver.
Quality, compact and sporty full Irish Draught with bone and substance without being heavy. Very attractive model, well marked with great presence. As he matures and fills his frame he is going to be something really special. Highly sought after at this height.
Working well on the flat for his age with 3 expressive, rhythmical paces. Active hind leg, moves very well with good rhythm. Nicely balanced for his age with clean transitions. Forward and responsive off the leg and showing good work into a soft hand. Would do a lovely test. Willing and trainable, lovely attitude to the job and tries very hard. Very genuine. Prefers a nicely balanced rider with good hands.
Very good to a fence and loves to jump. Takes you in without being strong and wants to get to the other side without touching anything. Very bold and completely unspoilt, never says no and will figure out a problem. Would make an awesome hunter. Hasn’t been over-produced or over-faced, confidence has been kept high and he gives everything his best effort.
Been cross country schooling, popping a range of little fences, water, ditches and banks confidently and boldly, always first time. Great instincts and covers the ground well. Would certainly event, whether at riding club or BE.
Loads and travels in a lorry, 3.5t and trailer. has been away from home schooling and stayed on the box whilst another was taken away, then left the box himself on his own to school with no issues. Not clingy or nappy. In a snaffle for all activities.
Hacks out alone and in company, good on the roads, in open spaces and with farm machinery. Not at all spooky or sharp but he is a quality youngster with a bit about him so not for a novice. Very good to do on the ground and is a friendly, kind and straightforward young horse who greatly appreciates cuddles and attention. A real happy character who always has a smile on his face. No quirks, vices or medical issues.
Suitable for competent teenager or small adult. Basics established, ready to put your mark on and take him wherever you want him to go whether that’s hunting, a riding club allrounder or for sport.
