JUMPING Woody is a capable jumper jumping up to a meter in the school he’s not phased by fancy fillers or poles and happy to take a fence in trot or canter, he’s steady calm and easy to jump. He was recently taken out on our local hunt were he behaved impeccable with excellent ground manners, happy to stand around at the meet not phased by the hounds and happy to jump ditches and a small hedge he was a real pleasure to hunt and I had great comments from my fellow hunters regarding how well mannered he was for a six year old.
GROUND MANNERS previously owners said that he could be a little food aggressive on the ground when meal times, we have put this in his add as we have to be truthful, he has turned his ears back at us at feed times but nothing more that that! He can be a little grumpy at meal times however when he’s in his stable with his hay net you can muck out around him and do what you like? He’s young and can easily come out of this bad habit! He’s excellent to lead to and from the field, excellent to shoe, box,clip and loads and travels perfect we have tried and tested him many times and he’s proven himself to be a nice young horse. When buying a six year old you need to be prepared to put in the work to help further his education and manners.
