Horses for Loan£ 17 yrsSkewbald
Phoenix is a 13.3hh rising 7yo cob mare, she is a perfect allrounder who rides and drives. Phoenix is insanely easy going, good to catch, lead, tie, groom, tack up, ride, cool off, bath, plait up, load, farrier/vet/dentist/etc. Phoenix is bitless and barefoot and that is non negotiable, she can be ridden at all speeds perfectly bitless and is driven bitless too.
She has been on loan this past summer to an 11yo novice to learn to ride on, and was having regular lessons with me as well as going out on long hacks alone or in company. Sadly they have moved yards so she is now looking for someone else to have fun with. We have practically onsite hacking here and fantastic places to ride as well as local shows just up the road.
She lives in or out but is currently stabled due to the flooding and isn't bothered by this.
Phoenix is my main lesson horse and if someone wants a horse to ride on the yard, Phoenix is the one they take, she is good in all gaits and currently jumping 70cm. She rides English, Western or Australian. She is happy to plod around the block or step it up a gear.
Phoenix has bucked before when she has been severely spooked (a horse had an accident next to her during a flat out gallop) but once all was safe she carried on as if nothing had ever happened and didn't offer to do so again.
Phoenix was a rescue who was going to slaughter (actually rescued from the loading bay at the ferry port) so does need a kind gentle hand. She'd be perfect out competing at local shows, doing endurance, trekking, fun rides, jumping, cross country etc. She loves cross country and has a big jump on her. Nothing phases her on the roads, she has driven up the A20, through rivers etc.
Phoenix is completely dog proof as my dogs accompany us on rides. I have tons more pictures and videos, if you have whatsapp or facebook I can send you them. I would prefer Phoenix to stay at our current yard, but may consider moving for the right person if they were close by.
