15.3hh 4yo chestnut traditional Irish Sports Horse Mountain Diamond x Presenting. Quality allrounder with tons of personality!


Fish is a traditionally bred Irish Sports Horse with the perfect mix of blood and substance, making him an ideal prospect for any discipline. Athletic and sporty with a willing and trainable nature, Fish wants to please and loves to play! He is playful and cheeky but quiet and sensible, he is not sharp or silly and would be more kick than pull.


Fish is the sweetest character, he has loads of personality and just wants to be cuddled and played with. Good to handle and do on the ground in all ways - think oversized labrador!


Fish has mostly been hacking and he would benefit greatly from sticking with this for a bit to keep him thinking forwards. He is good on the roads and in open spaces and has done fun rides and cross country schooling. To get the most out of Fish I think he would really benefit from a summer of hacking, fun rides and cross country clinics to bring on his education and brain before focusing more on the schoolwork over the winter. He has been jumping natural obstacles and is good in a group, done water crossings and even boldly acted as a lead horse when needed. He is a bold, confident chap who we think could also make a super hunter. Has only been ridden in a snaffle.


Fish is green but genuine in the school, working quietly and has a lovely mouth with natural carriage - you don't have to do much except ride him forward. He has worked over poles and popped some little cross poles showing class and good potential as he strengthens up and improves. Shows lovely, loose, expressive paces but he is a wobbly, weak baby who is still a bit backwards thinking and so that's why I think he would benefit most from spending his 4yo year going out and about and strengthening up.


For a competent confident rider Fish really will be worth allowing the time to mature. He has a great brain and attitude to life in general and wants to please and I really think he will come out swinging in his 5yo year with the right person. Although he is a quality horse showing potential for eventing or dressage Fish does not have that high competitive drive brain and I think he could be equally at home as a happy hacker and big pet!


No vices just a big smile and lots of character. Serious enquiries to please call only, messages and emails may not be answered. All video can be found on the Amy Derber Equestrian Facebook page just use the search facility to search for 'Fish.'
