A handsome and affectionate 8 yo cob gelding. Approx. 14.2hh.
We have decided to see if we can find this special boy a loving, experienced home that he deserves as current owner (now 14) has lost her confidence on him.
Luca has successfully competed in Unaffiliated dressage and show jumping shows, done x-c training and hacks alone and in company, in the woods, fields or roads. He will live in or out and is a good doer but never gets too fat however much grass there is.
He is a total gent in hand, boxes and travels well and a real pleasure to do in every way.
Luca, however has a buck, so needs a confident and experienced rider, who can ride him through this. He doesn’t buck often, but did managed to unseat his 13 year old, then nervous rider a few times too many by dropping his shoulder on landing after a fence. He also sometimes can kick out and do a little hump into the canter, but usually will then carry on nicely.
He can be strong in open spaces, but again, not with a strong and confident rider.
He can be a little spooky (again, not always) and when he spooks he tends to just flinch and then carry on.
Strong confident riders would not be put off by his occasional bucking, as he is mostly very well behaved and a pleasure to ride. He has so much to give and is a real fun horse, just not suitable for my daughter.
Currently he is turned out with a mixed herd and as he makes a wonderful companion to any mare or gelding, we will keep him as just that, unless we can find the right home for him.
