Outstanding temperament kind and straightforward.
Lovely paces and a huge jump
Perfect pony club/riding club horse or mother/son/daughter share.

17hh Grey Gelding Holsteiner x ISH by Contador (Cassini 1) 11 year old gelding. Bred in Ireland AES Passport.

Cosmo has an exceptional temperament with impeccable manners both on the ground and when ridden. Imported from Ireland (from a private home) as a 4 year old has been with current owner since a 6 year old. Cosmo has been bought on slowly and very correctly allowed to mature physically and mentally resulting an easy uncomplicated horse with a ‘can do’ attitude who loves his work and is happy to take on any challenge with confidence.

Current owner is not competitive but loves training so Cosmo has been to hundreds of clinics and lessons for flat-work, jumping and cross country training. He is relaxed in company, warms up in a crowd without a problem, waits for his turn, used to give leads to less confident horses xc, easy in new environments, does not hot up or get excited. Snaffle mouth at all times.

Cosmo has been at training livery in two excellent professional yards. He has been ridden by different people for schooling, jumping and hacking including petite lady and will adapt to his rider.

Dressage - Cosmo works very nicely on the flat with three lovely paces, working at novice /medium level, he enjoys schooling and is an easy and straightforward ride. Has been to BD Camp at Hartpury.

Jumping – Cosmo has a serious jumping pedigree and loves his jumping. He is straight to a fence and very relaxed and forgiving. Schooled cross country at 90 but has huge scope to go further. Comfortably show jumping at 1m-1.10 with scope for more. For a big horse he is very balanced and has the Irish ‘fifth’ leg.

He is superb to hack out, alone or in company, rock solid in all traffic and used to going ‘off road’. Stands to be mounted from gates and to stop and chat/answer phone without getting impatient. Can be led from another horse and can be led from.

Cosmo is lovely to handle on the ground, he is polite and gentle. Excellent to clip, wash, lead and shoe. Loads easily into a trailer and lorry, stands on the box and ties to tack up. Current owner takes him everywhere on her own he is so easy in every respect.

Currently barefoot, his shoes were taken off at the beginning of lockdown in March when the future was unknown and he managed so well owner decided to keep him barefoot . His feet are hard, so boots (Equine Fusion) used only for longer hacks on the road, schools and jumps barefoot. However he could easily be shod again as has excellent hoof quality.

This is a heart-breaking sale of a once in a lifetime horse, due to increasing demands of a new business (Canine Behaviourist). This horse loves to work. He is currently at livery and is fit and ready to go. Open to vet. 5 star home only.
