3. ‘Super’

Height: 16hh

Gender: gelding

Age: nine

Selling points: “‘Troy’ has hunted for five seasons with many riders, from novice adults, ladies, teenagers, and more experienced adults, including the field master of our local hunt. He is an uncomplicated ride out hunting — never strong and always ridden in a snaffle. He jumps everything — ditches, banks, fences, wire etc — and stands patiently. He is happy at the front or the back and stands to be mounted. He has also done unaffiliated showjumping, hunter trials, TRY events, riding club and Pony Club. He has jumped courses of 80cm-1m. He has good flatwork, and with practice would do a lovely dressage test. He has also been driven, and is very straightforward to drive. He stands to be groomed, shod, clipped, washed, a very easy horse to handle on the ground. Good in traffic, easy to catch and has no vices.
