Videos of Aidan have been posted!
"Aidan" is a
16.3hh 11yr Irish Sport Horse gelding
He is a seasoned Fox Hunter
who also started his show career in 2005 with a
teen age girl. Very successful in the jumper ring he
was shown in the "Children's" "High Juniors"
and "High Adult" through Level 4 jumpers
in Virginia, Pennsylvania and Georgia. In 2009 he was
very successful in the Hunter ring with year end champion
awards in the Adult Hunter and Working Hunter divisions
at local shows. Aidan will hack quietly on the
buckle and will work in a frame nicely. He is a brave
and bold jumper who is careful and clean. His lead changes
are completely automatic. He will jump anything you
ask, from any spot and can think for himself when
needed. He is not spooky and tries hard to do
what the rider asks. He loves trail riding and will
go through anything! Mud, water, ditches, roads, etc.
Aidan is a big powerful horse who has a great
brain and is fun to ride, but not for a beginner. Aidan
has excellent ground manners, he clips, bathes,
ties, etc. Self loads on the trailer and is always
quiet off the farm and at new places. He has no vices
and is 100% sound - needs no maintenance!
This season he is Fox Hunting
again! Aidan went hunting with Rappahannock Hunt in
November -first flight- with a young
lady who had never hunted before. He was PERFECT! He
stood like a rock on a loose rein at all the checks,
didn't mind being in the back or the front, jumped everything,
never looked twice at anything they came across! He
went down the gravel roads, paved roads, through rivers,
up and down the hills, through the fields and right
up to the cows! He was also very careful to watch
out for the hounds when they would run between his legs!
And he LOVED every minute of it!
