After a year's break from riding and moving to the UK, I am once again looking for a horse. I have been riding for 14 years, have owned/loaned/shared horses in the past, all kept at a DIY livery. The past few years I have been focusing first on young dressage horses and then on rehabilitation of horses with back problems.
Am used to hot tempered horses. Am currently in process of doing BHS stage exams and progressing towards instructor qualifications.
I would be looking for a young mare or gelding, preferably 3-8 years old and 16hh+ , with predispositions towards dressage. Said horse will be the apple of my eye, 5** home guaranteed.
It's VERY important to me that it's a horse that enjoys working and spending time with people, as I'm not just looking for a horse but for a best friend. A contact-seeking horse is a must!!!
I live in Edinburgh and would be mostly interested in horses in an up to 50mile radius, but for a truly special horse I will travel across the country!
Price range in the area of £3-5k, depending on horse.
The past few years I've been focusing on a more natural approach and would be looking for a horse able to live in grass livery, at least in the summer months.
