Mr Bojangles is an exceptionally talented and athletic horse for his size and breeding. He is 16.2hh and 9 years old. He has 10 inches of bone and is a good weight carrier. Bo has been in the same home for four years and is much loved. He has turned his hoof to everything asked of him and has taken part in all manner of activities including: dressage, showing, le trek, horse agility, have a go horse ball, sponsored rides and XC and SJ schooling.
Bo is always placed showing, he has lots of presence and turns heads in the ring. He would make an excellent maxi cob for an ambitious rider as he is incredibly light on his feet. He has been shown in-hand and under saddle and has won every class.
Bo has taken part in unaffiliated Intro and Prelim dressage, always scoring above 60%. He has started lateral work and has good leg yield and shoulder in and could progress further in the right home. He is currently trained using classical French techniques.
We have taken part in horse agility and le trek and Bo has proven to be unphased by any objects. Happy to stand on tarpaulin, lead through hanging branches and put his feet in hoops.
Bo hacks alone and in company and is snaffle mouthed at all times. Bo is good in traffic, including buses, tractors and motorbikes and has been used to escort traffic shy horses out in a busy village. Has been used to ride and lead my companion pony, took to it like a duck to water. Bo can sometimes become exuberant in open spaces and in larger groups and therefore is not suitable for a nervous or novice rider however with a confident rider this wouldn’t be a problem.
Bo is good to catch, load (loads himself into our trailer), bath and clip. Bo is currently barefoot and has been for the past four years, he has good, solid, hard feet and covers all terrains. He is fine to have his feet trimmed.
Bo has lived in and out; he wintered out for the first time last winter and coped brilliantly. Lives out 24/7 in the summer and has been turned out with mares and geldings. Currently turned out with geldings only but Bo gets on with any field companion.
Bo is a big horse who thrives on work and routine; he is at his best when ridden by a confident rider and will give someone a lifetime of fun turning his hoof to anything asked of him. He has never reared or bucked. Up-to-date with vaccinations, teeth, regularly seen by Osteo and Physio and open to five stage vetting. Due to Bo’s size and breeding he will not be sold to a jumping home. Absolutely no dealers.
Bo is for sale due to a change in my circumstances- I have recently taken a promotion and can no longer offer Bo the time he deserves.
Can deliver if required.
