Captain Bob is a traditional cob gelding. He is around 15.1 and very stocky so good weight carrier. He is 6 years old and has been hacking out and has jumped a course of show jumps. He is a very cheeky chap who can take the mick if let to. He is brilliant to travel in trailer or lorry and has been to a few shows. He is shod. Great with vet. Up to date with worming, vacc and teeth. He is bombproof in traffic but can throw the odd little buck in canter or if he wants to get his own way, but this is rare.

Bob had a short laminitis issue last year which was caught very early and only resulted in 2 weeks box rest, and so he does need restricted grass in the summer.

He has only had routine in the last 12 months (teeth and vaccines)
