16.1hh 8yo grey Irish Sports Horse type gelding. No breeding recorded. A fun, forward ride with bundles of personality looking for a like-minded partner for adventure!
Clooney is a sporty compact model - very much a pony type but who moves like a horse! He is a forward, responsive ride who approaches most things with great enthusiasm and requires a confident, competent rider who isn't going to take themselves, or him, too seriously. Every time I ride him I'm smiling and laughing, he is so much fun and so funny and we really are looking for someone for him who will get his sense of humour! He isn't naughty or nasty but can have the occasional wobble or brain melt where he needs someone who will laugh at him and tell him to shut up and get on with it. Absolutely not for a novice, princess or wet lettuce.
Clooney moves very well across all paces and is showing good work on the flat. Still a little green and the canter is still a little weak but tries extremely hard and is out competing at Prelim level now. Will move up the levels easily. Clooney is a great mover, is very trainable and is very happy to school, learn and compete but I think he does want more from life than a pure dressage home.
Clooney loves to jump and is super over a fence. He is bold, athletic, quick-thinking and can take a miss. He takes you to the fence and is quick over the ground. Currently competing at 90cm and is just a bit green still in the ride. Improves and grows in confidence with every outing, the more he does the better he gets. He will suit a forward thinking, competitive rider who is as bold as he is! He has plenty of potential BS or BE with scope for at least Newcomers and BE Novice with the right rider. He has done fun rides and hunting and would certainly team chase.
Clooney hacks out alone and in company and will lead or follow. Again, suits a forward thinking, positive rider and would not suit a low level happy hacking home. He is a happy, cheerful character who likes to be busy and is looking for an active lifestyle.
Good to do on the ground and in all ways. Can be a bit busy and fidgety - sense of humour sometimes required! He has tons of character and personality and is very much an extrovert!
