Approx 15.3hh 5yo registered ISH gelding Cloneen Clover Diamond x Ars Vivendi. Super genuine Riding Club allrounder.
Acorn is a pretty flaxen chestnut gelding with good bone and substance. He is a solid, workmanlike model, hardly chiseled by the hand of God and ready to set the world alight but he will do a good job and get you from A to B. He is well bred and you can really see his quality shine through in his paces. He is a lovely big mover with a soft mouth who would like a rider with nice light hands who can ride effectively from the leg.
Very trainable and rideable, he tries very hard to get things right and has a lovely attitude to his work. He is a sweet, genuine horse with no badness or sharpness in him but he isn't an idiots ride as his sporty breeding has given him a bit more brain than your average rocking horse so wouldn't suit someone looking for a dead behind the eyes slot machine with legs. He is off the leg but he is definitely more kick than pull.
Good to hack, is regularly out on the roads alone and in company. Still a bit green and sometimes needs a bit of reassurance from his rider but a confident, capable rider will have no trouble at all.
Acorn is good on the ground and is a sweet boy but he can be a bit wary of strangers, please keep this in mind when viewing. He will take a bit of time and investment to build confidence and a relationship, he is not going to be a washing machine you can get out the box and plug in to the wall ready to use.
Acorn had surgery earlier this year to have an infected tooth removed and still has some swelling on the side of his face from where the infection was. This will go down gradually over time. Has also previously had a successful wind op.
