Fox has a kind nature, he likes being around people and other animals (he has shared his fields with other horses ewes & lambs calves hens & dogs). Fox was backed and ridden away as a 5yo. (due to loss of rider and my ill health he was turned away). Fox was brought back into ridden work autumn 2020 and was worked in the field or school hacked around our country lanes through farms with all the modern farm machinery shown and encouraged to go through flowing water.(this does not mean he is bombproof only that he is learning) prior to his ridden work he has been constantly worked in hand lunged & long reined, weather conditions permitting.

Fox was sent to Josh to be professionally brought on , yes he is eleven but is a mature horse body and a young willing mind. He has only been clipped once full clip (under light sedation), he’s good with vets, travelled in trailers and wagons , but he does like to look and take his time in loading. We have never had any problems catching Fox, he comes to call or you can go and bring him away from his field pals.
He is good with the farrier (he has only been shoed in front).

Option for him to be leased to an appropriate person at a monthly cost subject to contract.

Fox has a full brother who is a year older and is out competing ,and 4 other siblings from the same mare line by other sires. If you are looking for a genuine forward going horse then he could be your next horse. We are looking for a knowledgeable home for him where he will blossom and give years of pleasure.(he is not a first pony/horse) He’s open to vets never been vetted. Fox has a scar/bump on his off hind cannon bone which he cut April 2015 we did not back him till August 2015.  Any prospective purchasers are more than welcome to ask any questions and i will answer to the best of my knowledge.

His sire; ID Earl of Montrose. Gr.s. Mountain View Gr.d. Mountain Charisma.
the Earl show jumped. and evented before resuming his stud duties
Fox’s dam was Hill Top Amber vii by the imported stallion Gross ex pt.-to-pt. Strath Leven. Amber sustained an injury which left her unsound for competition but proved a good foundation mare.

My Solero , Hilltop Red Angus and the above Hilltop Red Fox.
