A remarkable 17hh 8yo Irish draught grey gelding.
A great opportunity to own a true example of the Irish draught breed, Hugo is a lovely chunky horse who has a lovely amount of bone and bundles of character and personality.
Hugo in the school is highly educated, working very well in a true outline in walk, trot and canter. He will move laterally, understands changes and keeps to a rhythm all whilst requiring minimal contact, he is always ridden in a snaffle and is never strong! He is a steady, balanced horse who would aid a novice learning the ropes, he has smooth consistent paces but in turn would be a great horse for a more experienced rider to enjoy!
Out hacking Hugo is 100% reliable, he will go alone or in company, first or last and won't take notice of any traffic, including large lorries or double decker buses. He will happily walk along on the end of the buckle. He is very sensible in open spaces, even in company.
Hugo has done a few seasons hunting in Cork, proving himself to be a firm favourite horse to hunt, not becoming unmanageable or sharp, he will jump anything he's asked to and is not bothered by the hounds or other horses, he can be hunted by a lady rider in a snaffle and doesn't become strong even when moving with the rest of the field. He will stand quietly when asked to.
To jump Hugo is very bold and brave, he does not look at any fillers, coloured or rustic poles, he understands striding and waits politely for the fence to come, again remaining in a snaffle. He doesn't heat up. We have jumped Hugo up to 1m15 at home but he has the talent to go higher.
On the ground Hugo is the full package, he's an absolute gentleman, children can handle him. He is polite to catch, lead, tack up/un tack. Loads nicely and travels without a sound, enjoys a brush and a bath, is very quiet and easy to mount. Great to shoe, box and clip. We can't find a fault with him! He has no vices.
Hugo is open to a vet and inspections
