14.3hh 5yo reg Connemara gelding Capparoe Lad x Ballyard Prince. Quality little horse with a fantastic brain.
Very attractive, correct, upstanding model with a great front. Showing some quality work with a super willing and trainable attitude and a wise head on young shoulders. Already a super hunter with potential to be a smashing allrounder. Nice big shoulder but is a petite model so would best suit a rider under 5'4". Has the right temperament for a teen or child.
Moves very well with 3 good paces, including a massive uphill canter that is going to be really quite special as he strengthens. Fantastic hind leg. Good mouth, working sweetly and easily into the contact. Has only been schooling for a short time so does still lack mileage on flatwork schooling however he has come on very quickly in a short space of time and is ready to go out and do a smart intro test. Is not yet cantering a 20m circle. Currently always in a snaffle including out hunting, never strong or silly. Jumps a fence really sweetly, has schooled over coloured poles and cross country fences. Super bold, not much phases him and he will give everything a try. Gives a lead to less bold horses on fun rides and hunting. Incredibly genuine in everything he does. A really sweet, kind, genuine, straightforward youngster with a laid back attitude.
Has started out dragging this season which he takes in his stride, behaving beautifully and being both mannerly and bold. Happy to toddle along at the back or be front of the field. Out dragging regularly now ready for someone to carry on with. Has also done fun rides where he behaves impeccably and jumps everything. Could be hunted by a child.
Great to hack, shows real maturity in his attitude and everything he does. Seen traffic, good in open spaces. Genuine, willing, trainable youngster with the basics in place and a bit of mileage, ready to be produced and get out and about. No vices, quirks or medical history.
