    1. ‘Fantastic’

    Cobs for sale

    Height: 14.2hh

    Gender: gelding

    Age: eight

    Selling points: “‘Bob’ has previously hunted with the Leitrim Harries in Ireland. He is fantastic to hack out alone or in company and will go first or last. He is perfect in even the most heaviest of traffic. Bob is safe and sane – a  weight carrier, who is a total armchair to ride. He is fantastic to handle in all ways, in and out of the stable. He is county level show quality and I think he would do very well with his substantial feather and barrel body. He schools nicely in all three paces and pops around a course of coloured and rustic fences. He is snaffle-mouthed at all times and as safe and as quiet as they come. He truly is the type you could put your grandparents on one day and go out and for some fun jumping the next – he is as honest and as willing as they come and he is as wide as he is tall. No vices whatsoever, no lumps or bumps and open to any vetting.”
