Looking for an experienced hunt horse on a budget?



I had the privilege of hunting Whiskey (2010, 15'3 hand, QH gelding) yesterday with the Farmington Hunt. As expected with his experience — two seasons of hunting including some time serving as a whip's horse — he was a very good boy. Whiskey is smart about the hounds, stands well at checks, handles field reversals well, is extremely surefooted, crosses creeks/rivers, and is happy to jump whatever. He is super straightforward and honestly goes best when simply left alone to do his job. He is smart and keeps up with the field without being strong. In fact, he hunts in just a loose ring snaffle! He is very quiet and easy to handle on the ground.



So what's the catch? He does jig. I just ignore it. It never escalates and in my mind does not keep him from being a safe and reliable mount. However, it is there.



Whiskey is priced to sell in the upper 4 figures. Price reflects the jigging and the fact that he does have imperfect back radiographs.
