Selling points: “This Irish Draught is an ideal gentleman’s middleweight hunter but is also ridden by a lady rider. He has huge presence and a fabulous way of going. He is a brilliant hunter having gone out regularly with the DSSH and the EFH throughout the spring and will be out again in the next few weeks. He has field mastered on several occasions and will go anywhere. He is a good jumper and has also shown. He would do a beautiful dressage test and is a gent to hack alone or in company and ride and lead etc. He is good to box, shoe and in traffic and has no vices. He is a really honest horse that would excel at anything.

5. ‘Crosses any country’

hunters for sale

 

Height: 17.1hh

Gender: gelding

Age: seven

Selling points: “Fred has hunted a full season (two days a week) with the Tynedale, both whipping in and in the field. He crosses any country and jumps everything — gates, rails, hedges, ditches etc. He is very well-mannered, stands perfectly and happy to go out on point. Fred is never strong, he has been hunted by a short lady rider and is always in a snaffle. He is more than good enough for a huntsman or field master. Fred has also competed on hunt relay teams, coming second at Belsay Horse Trials. Fred came 10th out of 42 at the Melton Hunt Ride in February, on his and my first attempt at a hunt ride. He would be a fantastic addition to any team chasing team; he would go first, middle or last. He is bold and honest but safe, always trusting and looking after his jockey. Fred has also evented at BE90 (where he has been placed) and BE100, he is honest, brave and always looks after his jockey. He competed in the RoR classes at Northumberland County show in 2018, where he was highly praised by the judges. Fred is great to hack out, alone or in company, riding or leading and is perfect in traffic — nothing fazes him. Fred is a very laid back and easy horse to deal with at home and away. I think a lot of Fred and a good home is a must for him.”
