Rising 8 year old, 15.2hh, full connemara gelding with Ashfield Bobby Sparrow and Earl of Newbridge lines. Rory is heartbreakingly for sale after being with us for 4 years due to his owner being at university.
Rory is an ultimate all-rounder looking for a small, competent, confident, adult rider to go out and have fun with! Rory is well schooled on the flat and knows how to leg yield, turn on the fore-hand, shoulder in and walk-canter transitions. He has competed in unaffiliated dressage competitions, proving to be popular with the judges and always in the ribbons receiving comments including ‘a lovely looking horse with correct paces and lovely rhythm’ and ‘cracking little horse with super trot work'.
He enjoys show jumping and has gone clear at 85cm, always steady, sensible and unfazed by fillers.
Rory’s favourite things to do are going cross country schooling, pleasure rides to the beach and forest, hacking and going hunting. He hunted last season with the Thurlow and Cambridge drag.
Good to hack alone or in company, first or last, good in traffic. He is not the spooky sort, but will throw in the odd buck if excited and is a typical cheeky pony so requires a confident rider. Rory is very relaxed about life and is never silly, spooky or strong, being in a snaffle at all times (out hunting too). Very good to shoe, catch, clip and always loads and travels well (lorry and trailer).
Rory has lovely manners and my non-horsey family are happy to lead him out to the field etc. Rory is a lovely chap who loves a fuss, happy to stand around being groomed and bathed all day.
Very sad sale so serious enquires only please, he will only go to the right home where he will be loved. Looking for a lovely forever home for this very special horse.
