17 year old Norwegian Fjord Gelding. 14.1hh. £3500 (including full wardrobe) Based in Sandhurst, Berkshire.
Yorkie (aka Dorks) is a typical Fjord horse. Extremely well mannered on the ground, and easy to do. Has been ridden by a competent 10 year old and takes great care of her, but has a more forward gear for experienced riders. However, he has never bolted, bucked or reared and is generally unphased by anything ‘scary’. Perfect for farrier (shod in front), brt and good to clip.
As is typical of the breed, Dorks will turn his hoof to anything, and tries hard to please. Has been taken to local shows jumping and dressage. Will hack out alone but better in company. Snaffle mouthed in all disciplines.
Very good doer, currently stabled overnight all year round and is muzzled when turned out. Has lived out but it becomes difficult to manage his weight in summer because he doesn’t stop eating with full access to grass, even with a muzzle!
Dorks doesn’t have perfect hooves, but they are easily managed and they haven’t caused any lameness. (Happy to explain this further.)
Currently in a large herd of geldings, but has previously been in a mixed herd and a much smaller group and has been fine.
Dorks is full of character, and has been a yard favourite with many admirers from even the most non-horsy folk.
A very genuine boy and a type hard to find. For sale as owner is giving up, no reflection on the horse. I would love it if he could stay local and be able to keep in touch with him. I’m not in a rush to sell, and will therefore be picky about who I let him go to - this has not been an easy decision and I want the very best for Dorks, he’s a very special boy. Would prefer him to go to a fjord knowledgeable home if possible.
