HACKING This is an honest advert! Straight up with no nonsense! sonnie is not great great hacking alone and sometimes he can nap back home! Don't get me wrong some days he's fine and will happily plod out on the busiest of roads! He hacks great in company and not phased by heavy traffic or farm machinery and he will happily go out in front and lead! Which is crazy for a horse that does not hack alone? Maybe he just likes a companion with him. He's great in open spaces not strong and remains level headed! He's happy to plod around the roads passing absolutely anything from tractors,diggers,buses even trotters coming 15 mph at him! He's not phased! He has hunted most of his life so I'm assuming he's used to going out with other horses! Plz note he will not nap in the school when schooling alone or with others!
JUMPING Sonnie excels when jumping from going over a x pole level headed in Trot to jumping one meter ten with ease and big spreads! The best thing about sonnie is that he remains level headed and does not fizz up! He's hunted and happy jumping ditches and hedges even gates! He will jump just about anything you ask of him and does it with ease! That's not to say he's just suited to the hunt as he very much enjoys pleasure rides, schooling and general clear round jumping!
GROUND MANNERS he's super affectionate when in his stable he has superb stable manners, super loving and kind! Likes to be made a fuss of and gets on very well with other horses. He's great to shoe,box,loads and travels great.
