16.1hh 4yo grey Irish Draught type gelding. No breeding recorded. The temperament everyone is looking for!
Lovely smart model with a bright outlook and good limbs. Eugene is a real sweetheart in every way, both on the ground and in the saddle. He is a real pet on the ground and really does seem to be what everyone is after in terms of temperament and usability. He is very user friendly, happy to be made a fuss of and touched all over. Will live in or out and is currently mostly out in a herd where he plays very well with the others and doesn't cause any fuss. Happy to come in away from them on his own and doesn't get stressed if he needs to stay in. He is a real laid back, happy chappy who is happy to take things as they come!
Eugene is brilliant to hack. He goes alone or in company, in front or behind. Happy to give a lead past scary things as he isn't spooky or sharp. Marches along happily taking in the scenery and really is great company! Good in traffic, with farm machinery and in open fields. Polite and mannerly at all times.
Has done fun rides and hunted with us where he really has shown himself to be the ideal hunter! Always draws comments for his impeccable behaviour and laid back nature. Eugene will switch off and go to sleep on the quiet parts, then canter up the front with the leaders jumping everything he is pointed at one minute before trotting along at the back nannying the kids the next! He is happy wherever you put him, doesn't get strong or silly and is sensible enough to be used as a backstop for the bolting ponies! Will happily wait his turn for the fence and never says no. Always in a snaffle and very basic tack.
Eugene is riding quietly on the flat with some very nice work into the contact he is just a bit green and weak in his schoolwork. Very willing and trainable so is the ideal young horse for someone to produce further into sport if desired. He is a responsive and obedient ride, not at all sharp, hot or silly. He is happily popping round a course of coloured fences including fillers and water trays and is willing to give everything a try. Has been out schooling at different venues, always beautifully behaved.
Sound in wind and limb with absolutely no quirks or vices. Very straightforward, friendly chap who is just such a pleasure to have around. Everything he does he does with a smile on his face! Eugene has never had a bad experience and is very much an unspoilt prospect who has been out and seen the world. He is fit and out hunting now so ready to crack on with.
