Top competition prospect looking for a new 🏡
Readvertised as was taken off the market due to my other commitments, now just coming back into work
15.3hh 8 years Trotter X gelding for sale through no fault of his own. Sadly a change in circumstances and my time mean this fabulous boy is looking for a new partner in crime. Snip is an outstanding little horse with bags of personality, looking for a fun fast paced home. He is just coming back into work after a short holiday and due to this is not yet competition fit but will continue to work on this until his perfect home is found.
Hacking Snip is perfect to hack in company in all traffic and across fields, not bothered by busses, lorries etc. Will hack alone with a confident rider to tell him he is okay, doesn’t do anything silly but is just more hesitant on his own.
Hunting Snip has previously been cubbing and seen hounds, proving very sensible and level headed. Hunted in a snaffle and never gets strong.
Schooling Snip has a lovely soft contact in walk and trot, does need a little more work with the canter as being part Trotter it’s not his most natural pace and does like his rider to hold him together for the transition to keep him balanced. He is incredibly willing and eager to learn and would do a fantastic dressage test with the right rider as has lovely expressive movement.
Jumping this is where Snips true talent lies. He is incredibly bold and natural to a fence, jumps coloured and natural fences without a second look. Has been to a few training shows and xc schooling days and always does his rider proud.
All in all Snip is a great little allrounder with the potential to go far with the right partnership. He is always snaffle mouthed and never strong, but can throw a buck, just likes to test his rider but once told no doesn’t do it again, due to this he is not suited to a novice but would be a brilliant fun horse for a teenager wanting to do PC, RC or competitions/hunting.
