Advert Description

Joe is a 15.2, 8yo, irish cross, joe has seen a bit of everything. He has been hunting, cross country, showjumping, hacking and hunting. He is a very easy horse to have around. Joe doesn't get fizzy atall when you take him new places he is just like he is at home. I have had joe since a 4yo and I have done everything with him myself. He hasn't done much schooling so is slightly green but is doing more now. He will jump anything you point him at but would need a strong rider as he does hook onto fences. He hasn't done as much Showjumping so hasn't seen all kinds of fillers but has been round a novice course and was fine he will have the odd look but if you take no notice and give him a squeeze he will go over it with height. Bombproof in traffic and has been on a busy yard with machinery. He absolutely loves being out in the field XC/Hunting. he has done just shy of 2 seasons hunting and just took to it. He is a strong horse but in the right bit this is easily managed. At the meet he can be a bit fidgety but nothing silly atall. I cant express how safe this horse is. he has a very good head on him and is clever! A friend of myne has hacked him the last year and he got nappy with her as she would let him go the way he wanted to go, she was a beginner and didn't know what to do. he has since came back to me and the napping stopped within a week. He would suit a rider looking for something to work with through the winter and take out early next year. He wouldn't go out and win at eventing or any discipline tomorrow as he does need some more work (just doing more of it) but this horse will be one to watch in the future as he is safe and honest and loves his work!!! Lives in or out, on his own or with company does not bother him.
genuine reason for sale I cant have 2 horses sadly!!! please serious enquiries only as he is a much loved boy and I feel I have been very honest and covered everything.
