Bow is a fantastic example of a classic Traditional Cob, she is very well put together, compact and true to type. She has a good amount of feather and bone a true weight carrier type with a long traditional mane and tail and is well filled out with a leg in each corner.
Bow is 100% out hacking in all terrains and traffic types. She is ride and drive although hasn’t been driven with us. She has been driven to Appleby and back several times (200 miles) via A66 pulling a living wagon and thus is a veteran on major roads in all weathers. She is the perfect happy hacker and has carried both experienced riders and novices. She is ridden in a snaffle and is never silly or has any ridden vices. She is nicely forward and will happily take any position in the ride. Hacks alone or in company confidently.
She has been tried in the school and is a little green although very willing she carries herself well and works from behind. With further schooling she would make a lovely traditional show horse. She would also make a fantastic hunter or jumper as has a superb technique over a fence and is very brave not phased by coloured poles or fillers has loose jumped over 1m and jumping small courses under saddle.
She is a very genuine, willing horse that enjoys hacking/driving throughout the countryside.
On the ground, Bow is 100% to handle. She is perfect to bath, hot shoe, tack up etc. She has been around toddlers and dogs and doesn’t bat an eyelid. She is happy to live in or out, can live in mixed herds or single sex groups. Good to muck out around, will not move a muscle in any scenario as long as there is a haynet! Perfect to load and travel in either trailer or lorry.
Bow has been in the same home since a yearling and has developed a lovely attitude to life. She is a nicely forward happy hacker/ ride and drive with the potential to be a show cob in the right home.
