I am looking for the perfect person to share my very sweet and well mannered Welsh D gelding 2/3 days a week.Bailey is a very stunning 15HH Welsh gelding with outstanding quality and a willing nature to please. Bailey excels mainly in dressage and showing as he came one place away from qualifying for OLYMPIA in the veteran showing last year.
Bailey is fantastic on the flat with 3 lovely paces and works in a nice outline when asked to. Bailey also love a good hack and will happily hack out on his own or with company. Fine with all types of traffic and is safe to ride in open spaces such as large fields, however he can get excited but is not out of control and will never buck, bolt or rear! Not spooky but will have a look around at things.
Bailey loves to jump XC and SJ however due to age and mild arthritis (which is treated and does not affect him as a pony) we keep jumping to a minimum. However when jumping Bailey does get excited so is a bit strong and is a bit more nervous with show jumps so needs someone who is kind and confident to get him over the fences.
Good as gold in all aspects both on the ground and ridden and is the soppiest boy you have ever met! Will stand for hours to be fused, cuddled and groomed and loves it! Bailey is not sensitive in any way as has been ridden by all abilities and ages.
However having said this I would prefer someone more experienced as he would reach his full potential with a more experienced rider and needs to be brought back into proper work as I have been out of action for a while due to being pregnant and recently giving birth to my little girl.
Bailey is based at a lovely and friendly yard in Warninglid/Haywards Heath (also close to handcross village) with access to large indoor arena, outdoor sand school, summer jumping field, plenty of on and off road hacking, wash down area and indoor barns.
stable duties will be required on the sharers days and a small monthly financial contribution is required.
