Stunning 16.2hh, 8 year old bright bay gelding with outstanding breeding on both sides including Darco, Iroko, Heartbreaker and Voltaire.
Absolute gentleman in every way, good to handle, lead, load, will stand on a horsebox all day and no bother to deal with at shows, excellent to catch, shoe, clip etc
Hughie is currently ridden by petite 5ft2 lady and schools beautifully. More than established in his flatwork and more than capable of a Dressage test now, would easily compete upto novice level and believe he would go further with some more schooling.
He has good conformation and with 4 white socks and a white blaze he stands out from a crowd, this ensures he would also go in the show ring as a hunter and gain good placings.
For the last few years Hughie has been stabled and produced on a show jumping yard, currently jumping up to Foxhunter, with 253 points he is still eligible for Newcomers, happy to jump fillers and open water. Would easily carry an amateur round.
Hughie has also been XC training and we think with his training in all 3 disciplines he would also make a fantastic Eventer or high end riding club horse.
He loves going out hacking and will happily go alone or in company, stabled near a very busy road he isn’t phased by traffic and loves a good canter across an open field, at home he is always snaffle mouthed and not strong or silly, out competing he is ridden in a myler combination bit (which mainly works off nose pressure)
Very flashy, big horse who is easy and completely vice free. Please only serious enquiries, this is a hard enough sale without time wasters. Only for sale as now concentrating on bringing more youngsters through the grades and feel he is wasted with us.
