15.2hh 12yo dun and white Irish gelding. No breeding recorded.
Rupert is a compact, sporty model who loves to jump. He has been well used and done all riding club activities including winning at showjumping up to 95cm, eventing to UA100, unaffiliated dressage scoring high 60s and lots of hacking and fun rides. Ideal for a teenager or amateur looking for a trustworthy buddy for fun and adventure!
Works quietly on the flat but does need riding to get a shape - if you don't ask you won't get. Dressage would be his weakest phase and he wouldn't suit a home where the focus is on a lot of schooling - he prefers to be 'outdoors' playing than 'indoors' studying! He is a forward and responsive ride without being sharp, silly or strong.
Rupert loves to jump and is super bold. Jumps anything, whether show jumps or cross country. Quick over the ground making him competitive against the clock. Very rideable to a fence and takes you in nicely. Much prefers to be forward to a fence.
Done lots of fun rides and hacking, always a real pleasure to be on. He is great alone or in company, good on the roads and open spaces and doesn't get hot or silly when everyone is going. He is the ideal companion or chaperone for a silly youngster or nervous friend.
Rupert is excellent to do on the ground and is a real pleasure in every way. He is a happy chap with a sweet, genuine and kind nature. No quirks or vices. Never naughty or nasty but Rupert would prefer to be in a home where he could be well used, whatever the job may be. Would be suitable for a confident novice but not a windy one.
