Gordon is a very handsome 13.2hh, 14 year old bay gelding. A super kind little chap with an easy going temperament. Gordon LOVES hunting and will look after a keen mini future huntsman/huntress like no other! Gordon is well hunted with the Beaufort and North Cotswold, and has been seen out hunting this season. Out hunting he jumps very well, he's not too speedy and not too slow. He will stand when he needs to, do gates and is great with hounds. Gordon has good flatwork with a super canter and does a lovely dressage test. Gordon has attended pony club camps and rallies, but is not a competition pony. Gordon has done lead rein and is good on the lead rein, but is not a lead rein hunting pony. Gordon ideally is looking for a hunting home as it's his no1 activity. He's great to hack on the road and in big open spaces. He's a chunky pony so would also take a small adult. Loves attention and fuss, and well mannered to handle. Sad sale, but Priced to sell as competition pony already in situ, and he is wasted at home. References from previous owners and loan home. Contact Maddy or Edward White

Ex P2P, super armchair hunter who has hunted with the Beaufort for the last 4 seasons. Will gallop all day and hunt within the field but also happy to be hunted away on his own.

Jumps beautifully but will sometimes stop at the silliest things and can be spooky hacking on his own until he's properly fit! Never bucked or reared, no vices. Great on the ground and at home, safe with heavy traffic, combines, trailers, quads etc.. Fit for autumn hunting. Sadly for loan due to heavy work commitments. Can be seen in Tetbury.
