Hold Fast – 15.3hh Gelding

15.3hh Grey Gelding, Foaled 10th May 2013

Dunelight x Pride of Derry 

Loan Hold Fast for £500 pcm shared use.

Or £650 pcm sole use.

Both to include livery, shoeing and worming.

Hold Fast was imported from Ireland by Sally in August of 2017.

This handsome grey gelding is by the Thoroughbred stallion Dunelight; one of the Irish Sport Horse Studbook’s Approved Irish Sport Horse Stallions.

You can see that Hold Fast has certainly inherited his sire’s athletic and well balanced conformation! Although in person he looks bigger than 15.3hh, he doesn’t ride ‘big’ as he is responsive and easy to keep together under saddle.

Although he hasn’t done much serious work in the arena, he is a clever little horse with a trainable temperament, so would no doubt progress quickly with his flatwork.

He is currently used on the riding school for our more experienced clients, where he does a great job of teaching them how to ride a ‘proper’ horse! A regular feature on Sally’s group jumping lessons, he is unfazed about working in a big group of horses, either in the arena or out on the cross country course.

This maturity lends itself well on the hunt field too! Sally hunts Hold Fast fairly regularly with the Coakham Bloodhounds. He always gives her a splendid days sport as he is quick, agile and nimble but remains level headed and rideable – the best of both worlds!

As you can see from his pictures, he is also a well-mannered hack out on the road. He is a pleasure to hack as he is forward going but polite in traffic and not spooky.

Hold Fast has a really good brain and is a just an easy, low maintenance sort of chap. He is a doddle to handle and is the easiest horse on the yard to clip and trim!

Hold Fast will also happily live in or out.

He would be the perfect partner for a teenager moving off of ponies. With the ability and temperament to make a super competition horse, he would be particularly well suited to Eventing, or would fit a Hunting home!

Hold Fast has a Green Irish Horse Register passport.
