After years of riding, I am finally in a position to buy (or LT/perm loan) and care for my own. The search is on...
I'm looking for a sane, safe, sensible horse with plenty of bone, age 6 - 14, gelding or mare, at least 16.3 as I'm 5ft 8" and weigh *ahem* too much for anything smaller...maybe an ID/IDX type or ISH looking for a quieter life...am open to ideas but not particularly drawn to TBs or WBs unless the temperament is right and ankles not too thin! No lumps, bumps or managed health conditions please.
Nothing bossy, bolshy bargy, green, spinny, planty, fizzy, flighty, fidgety or flappy thanks; no rearing, bucking, biting, bolting or kicking either...I have coped with all these things, but as I am no longer a fearless teen, I would prefer a mannerly horse.
My aim is to enjoy uncomplicated horse ownership and exercise, in time taking part in low level local comps, fun rides, maybe Le Trec - but for starters hacking out likely three times a week (alone or in company), popping a few jumps/natural obstacles, doing a bit of schooling, and developing my skills and a friendship for life with the right horse in a quiet and relaxed way.
Am based in east Hants, horse would be on private livery in super hacking country. I will travel pretty much anywhere in mainland UK and take time to find the right horse.
If you do have a horse that fits the bill (pref with tack max £4000) please get in touch by email, thanks.
