16hh 11yo sporty cob gelding. Loves to jump!
Well-marked, attractive model with a turbo engine. Marley truly is a super cob in need of a job - ideally showjumping, hunting, team chasing or hunter trialing. Right rider should also be able to convince him to entertain eventing! He absolutely loves to jump and has the scope and technique to out-jump a lot of sports horses I know. Athletic as a springbok, scopey as a flea, brave as a lion and careful as a cat - wants very much to get to the other side and without touching a thing. Has hunted and competed successfully in unaffiliated classes up to 1.05m showjumping and cross country in a previous home.
Marley is not for the faint of heart or wet of lettuce. He has an attitude and a sense of humour and needs a rider who can take a joke and laugh along with him. He's certainly no rodeo star but he does kick up his heels and can have a buck when he's fresh, excited or looking to make a statement! He is a responsive ride with big paces and a big uphill canter, nicely schooled on the flat but currently comes out a bit cold and fussy in the contact. Warms up and works very well and this is something we expect to improve with strength. Has the potential to do a good test with the right rider.
Brilliant to hack, good on the roads and will mooch along on the buckle alone or in company. Good to do on the ground can just be a typical opinionated cob but is easy to put him back in his place. Needs sedation to be clipped. Other than that no quirks or vices and is a pleasure to have on the yard.
Needs a confident, capable rider. Absolutely no novices or happy hackers unless they're the adventurous kind!
