This lovely welsh cross homebred gelding stands 15.2 hands, 8 years old , started hunting two times a week since mid August, and the past six weeks has been hunting two times a week first flight. Jumping 20 plus fences ranging from stone walls 3- to 3'3 of board fences, coops and drops with Blue Ridge Hunt, Loudoun Potomac Hunt, and Snickersville. He has attended hunt trail rides with Middleburg hunt with 60 horses and was totally relaxed. He does not get upset when other horses gallop off and has learned to keep trotting if others canter by, he trots collected down hill lightly without pulling and charging, he has already learned to stop before asked, he as the hunting thing down! He stands at the checks and is rateable to the fences. Hunting has been a breeze with hounds under belly, jumping out of cover, behind and in front, and game darting in front of him, he pricks his ears and sighs. He has got a magnificent mind and the looks of a masters horse. He stands over a lot of ground and can go into the show ring and win the hack. First experience at horse show was 15 in the division and horses bouncing off of him and he wasn't unsettled by even the runaway horses. He was champion first time out. He walks across ditches the way a gentleman should, crosses wooden bridges, handles water like a master, loads beautifully and clips with no twitch or aides. He has been comfortably jumping 2'6 courses and worked six months on grids and gymnastics. Recently Raider Competed in the hunter pace jumping 3 foot coops, stone walls and banks. He is talented enough to hunt with any Va Pack, but quiet to stay in second or third field. He could move onto the small hunter division and clean up as well and brave to go into an eventing direction as he has schooled xc courses and never blinked and eye and jumped it all. He has had some very beginner adults that he tolerated just fine during ring work. He is a kick ride in the ring and trails, but looks like an elegant TB. He is located at Van Vixen Farm in Leesburg VA, He tolerates a rider that makes a lot of mistakes. He is very forgiving. Available to be tried. Contact Heather Heider at 703-431-1613. He is hunting fit and ready for his next partner. "Raider" has many photos and videos available. Most of the riders in these pictures are ages 16 to 57 and are 5'9. I would be happy to share references on his hunting performance of people that have seen him in the field and even people that tried him that loved him and for reasons not his fault it didn't work out and they were very vocal in telling me they would be happy to speak with a perspective buyer on how great he is. Loads, clips body and ears only with twitch, mounts from the fence. Hunts in a snaffle. He has had two deposits on him and one fell thru due to financial situation and the most recent the client decided to go with a draft due to health reasons. He needs to prep to hunt. He is legit hunt horse and sexy to boot! To come hunt him, contact 703-431-1613. Trials only in hunt field please or on farm.
