16.3hh 6yo partbred Irish Draught gelding Clonleigh Dancer x Ko-Pilot.
Ranger is a lovely big horse with good bone and a super temperament - a real gentle giant who just loves a cuddle and attention. Very easy to do and have around on the yard, a real pleasure.
Showing nice work on the flat with 3 huge paces including a massive canter. He is still filling his frame and so still weak in his way of going but you can really feel the engine. Working nicely into the contact and is a forward and responsive ride. Can be sensitive so won't tolerate kickers and pullers. We feel he is slightly cold-backed and does just take 5 minutes to warm up. The more he does the better he goes.
Ranger is a proper jumper and is incredibly bold to a fence, doesn't look at anything. Hunted a full season in Ireland where we are told he crossed all country and we would believe it. We are told he was schooling round courses of 1.10m with current owner and single fences up to 1.30m. Jumps fillers, trays and cross country fences. Takes you in and doesn't want to touch a pole. Would excel as a hunter with enough quality for sport in the off-season. Would be an ideal gentlemans hunter.
Great to hack, we have had him out alone and in company with no issues or nappiness. Good on the roads and in open spaces, will happily school in an open field and go better for it.
No vices, will live in or out and turns out well with others. A lovable, happy chap with an easy nature and a smile on his face.
Passed a full vetting in January.
