15.3hh 4yo sabino maxi cob gelding.
Megacob Tom Doyle is a serious stamp with a seemingly self aware kind and gentle nature! Well marked with great legs, he will be an awesome allrounder, smashing hunter or happy hack. He is solid as a rock and built somewhere between a rhino and a tank with a bit of spark and a boldness you could go to war with. He just keeps marching on without letting anything phase him.
As you might have clocked he's pretty hench. But if leg-in-each-corner, sturdy, willing nature, weightcarrier, made-of-bricks-and-a-fire-pit is what you're after, Tom Doyle's your guy! He is still green in the school (obviously, remember, he is only 4!) but he is very obedient, works well, tries very hard, has a super attitude and a stellar temperament.
Despite his build he is quite sporty and a forward, responsive ride who is neither strong nor sharp. I'm a 4'11" lady and if I can hold him, anyone can hold him! He has a good walk and a rideable, uphill canter with gears. His trot is workmanlike with plenty of room to improve but he is never going to be a big flashy mover. For a big lump Tom isn't a particularly heavy mover. As he matures and strengthens he will lighten up even further and there's a lot of quality there to be a super allrounder. Currently always in a snaffle.
Tom is super bold in everything he does. Has even been used to round up cattle! Unphased by coloured poles and natural obstacles, he will jump anything and everything and is absolutely made for the hunt field. Has now started hound exercise with a very nervous rider proving to be exceptionally mannerly, kind, straightforward and the ideal confidence giver with a real old head on young shoulders. He would suit many different riders out hunting from more experienced riders looking to run and jump to those looking to wobble at the back and grow their confidence.
Brilliant to hack. He marches on and has been a brilliant lead here for other youngsters and horses twice his age. Good on the roads and in open fields. Good to do on the ground and in all ways, no vices or quirks. He really is a super kind, genuine guy with so much quality and worth his weight in gold.
