DESCRIPTION (as provided by vendor)
A fun, safe and quiet gelding by Hard Spun who would turn his hand at anything having hunted, show jumped and done combined training. Has also cross country schooled but due to covid hasn’t competed in this area.
Sad sale of a confident builder due to time constraints. He has no nasties and is a honest, forward and forgiving ride into a fence with scope. Has competed to 70cm.
Frank is regularly handled by my mum who is an amputee at home as well as out and about (including fully tacking him up) so has great ground manners. Easy going to take out places, stands on the buckle while waiting his turn. He floats easily with other horses or by himself.
Straight forward to ride, not sensitive to leg and doesn’t pull, sits happily in the contact. He is snaffled mouthed in everything he does with great breaks making him big moving but quiet. He is happy to go up the front, in the middle and as the last horse while hunting. He picks up both canter leads, maintains his rhythm, adjusts his strides, loves a stretch and has started learning to leg yield.
Frank has been exposed to farm life including sheep, all sorts of pets, cattle and machinery. He is great with dogs, regularly having one laying under his feet or playing around while he’s being tacked up. He leads and has led two other horses at walk/trot/canter with ease (including the brat child who should really have a muzzle on). He has been ridden bareback and in a headcollar with no issues.
Has a bone chip that is fused in his fetlock. Has had zero issues with this and worked on a variety of grounds and been in full competition work.
His racing trainer would love occasional updates.
