15hh 11yo dun cob gelding thought to be partbred Highlander. A true super cob and ultimate allrounder!
Harry is a substantial and attractive model. He is built like a tank with good bone, a massive chest and great presence. Would certainly show. No question that he is definitely a weight carrier but has mostly been ridden by petite female riders in recent years! Takes up the leg well - has been ridden here by a 6ft2 man with leg room to spare. Harry is not a kickalong steady Eddie type - he is a fun, forward reliable type who has previously done hunting, cross country, jumping, hacking, fun rides and riding club clinics.
Despite being built like the proverbial, Harry is super light on his feet and light in the hand. He moves well and is very rideable - tank-like only in appearance! He works very sweetly on the flat and will do a nice test with just a bit of polishing. He is a forward and responsive ride who does not need or want kicking or pulling. An easy and straightforward ride but he has a bit about him and isn't for an idiot.
Harry loves his jumping. He takes you in to the fence whilst staying nice and rideable and pops it sweetly. Not at all phased by fillers or trays and is comfortably schooling round 80/90cm courses with more in the tank once he loses a bit of weight! He is a machine cross country and is super bold including ditches, water, bank. Certainly capable of grassroots BE. Has also done fun rides and hunted with the Quorn with a small lady rider. Always ridden in a snaffle.
Harry is solid as a rock to hack. He is good in traffic and open spaces - we have even hacked him bareback! He is excellent to do on the ground and has a very steady nature. We have climbed and clambered all over him and he has stood like a rock and put up with all our nonsense. Very easy keeper - lives in or out and is barefoot, can be picked up and put down. No vices or quirks. We have sedated him to clip.
Harry is a real find, there really aren't many out there like him. Serious enquiries to please call only, texts and e-mails may not be answered. All video can be found on the Amy Derber Equestrian Facebook page just search for 'Harry'
