14.3hh 5yo bay Irish-bred gelding.
Henry is a real character and great fun to have around. He is a cheeky chappy who loves fuss and attention and is always ready to play - wouldn't suit someone who is intimidated by a horse with a personality! He is well-handled and good on the ground with no stable vices or medical history.
An out and out jumping machine, for Henry the dream job is fun rides, beach rides, hunting, adventure and lots of jumping! He is an 'out and about' horse, he doesn't want to be spending a lot of time in the school going round in circles. He is incredibly bold and takes you into a fence nicely without being at all strong or silly. Very careful over a fence whilst still making it feel effortless. Schooling over showjumps, water trays, fillers and cross country fences and hasn't been phased by anything so far. Would event for someone with the patience to put the work in on the flat. Doesn't get hot or fizzy.
Nicely forward and responsive with 3 very good, expressive paces. Flatwork is not his favourite thing but he is straight and obedient with the potential to do a lovely test with the right work. We have been working on getting him forward and straight and not faffing with his head carriage but he is showing nice moments to build on as he strengthens up. He is willing and trainable just weak still which affects his carriage and canter quality. He is not going to suit someone who is looking for something already schooling on the flat.
Ready to go out and have some fun with an adult, teen or child, or would be a super project for a capable rider looking for a nice young horse to bring on for sport or pleasure. He is a nice horse with a bit about him and nice big paces so isn't suitable for a very unbalanced rider.
Has mostly been used for hacking in his current home and he is great at it. Hacks out on his own and in company, very good in traffic. We are told he has hunted in Ireland but we aren't able to verify this. He is sane and mannerly and great on fun rides so I see no reason why he wouldn't go.
