16.3hh 5yo chestnut gelding by Irish Draught stallion Devil's Punchbowl. Ideal hunter/allrounder with a super temperament.
Snuggles is a lovely model with a sweet outlook. He is a sporty, light Draught type with good bone without being heavy or wide. He has the sweetest temperament and is very easy to do. Happily comes in from the field away from his herd without being at all clingy or nappy and is generally very self-sufficient. Very user friendly and mannerly, would happily be a pet!
Working well on the flat with 3 good paces including a big uphill canter. Obedient to the aids and works into a contact easily with a lovely mouth. More kick than pull, not at all sharp, silly or strong. Mannerly with a very willing temperament just a bit weak in the school still which will only improve with time and riding. Will do a smart test in time and is ready to go out and give it a try now.
Lightly hunted last season in Ireland as a 4yo and was kept on to hunt this season but not able to get out due to Covid. Jumping coloured poles showing good scope and technique, especially behind. Comes in and out of his fences quietly in a nice rhythm, doesn't rush or pull. Plenty of potential for sport just needs nurturing along to keep his confidence.
Snuggles is absolutely brilliant to hack. Goes on his own or in company, good on the roads and in open spaces. Will school in the field quietly. Good with farm machinery and to do on the ground in all ways. Really lovable, straightforward chap who would be suitable for a novice or rider who lacks confidence.
When Snuggles first arrived to us from Ireland he needed a week to settle in. We gave him the time and space and he has been the most wonderful boy who hasn't put a foot wrong. Needs a home that will keep this in mind when they get him and treat him as a horse, not a washing machine that arrives fully assembled and installed out of the box.
