Mellow, 15hh Irish cob gelding

Mellow is a genuine safe all rounder, perfect for a novice rider or someone wanting a straight forward ride. He is well schooled and super to hack, he also loves to jump up to 90cm. He is suitable for all low level riding club activities, or as a happy hacker. Mellow has introduced many beginners to cross country jumping as he is experienced with all types of fences and doesn’t get strong or silly.

We are looking for someone to ride Mellow 2-4 times a week, with contribution required.
