hunters for sale

 

Height: 17.3hh

Gender: gelding

Age: nine

Selling points: “Archie is worth his weight in gold for his temperament alone. He is completely unflappable and bombproof, kind and gentle on the ground, with a very trainable attitude and manners to die for. Archie was bought from Goresbridge ‘Go For Gold’ in 2015. He has since proved himself to be an easy going talented hunter, hunting with the VWH with both a lady and gentleman rider. He has a bold, brave jump with scope to burn. Jumps out of any ground, off any stride. This horse will get you to the other side no matter what! Jumping 1.30m at home with ease. He is snaffle mouthed and very manoeuvrable for his size. Good to box, shoe, clip. Fit and ready to go. Passed 5 stage vet in 2017. This top class horse is regrettably for sale due to work and family commitments and through no fault of his own.
