    A very sad sale of a much-loved boy. I have owned Arnie for nearly 3 years and this has been a very hard decision to make. He is such a sweet natured boy but has proven a bit too much for me as I am an extremely nervous rider. He has got a heart of gold and plenty of manners. He never wants to hurt you and is so very genuine and kind. This lad will soon become your best friend.


    I have only ever hacked Arnie and he is happy to go out on his own or in company and will go up front or follow behind but at the moment he is only ever hacked out on his own. I have never jumped him and even though he is no speed demon I’m sure he would be happy to pop over the odd log or two but he is definitely not built for competing or pony club. Arnie loves to go out on a hack and is not a kick along but will have the occasional lazy day. He is good in traffic and an angel to tack up. Never an issue to catch and is always willing to work. He is good with the farrier but will insist on a hay net whilst its being done. The way to this horse’s heart is most definitely through his stomach but because of this he does have to be restricted in the spring and summer months as he will just keep on eating. He has never had laminitis and the only health problem he has is that he needs his hay soaking, as I noticed the first winter that I had him that he developed a cough and I was told by the vet that this was caused by an allergy to the dust in the hay but since then I have soaked the hay and never had a problem.

    Arnie is very lazy in the school but can be quite forward going out on a hack. He can get a little nervous at times but with a confident and competent rider he works really well.
    He loves water and will happily splash around all day in a stream. I have never boxed Arnie myself but I was there when he was loaded to come to me and he went straight in with no hesitation.

    I am looking for Arnie’s forever home as he is so dearly loved by the whole family so due to this reason you will not find a more honest sale than this and I am happy to answer any questions. I am in no rush to sell this boy and finding him the most perfect, 5 star home is of upmost importance. He deserves to never be sold on again and live the rest of his days with a loving family so please no time wasters or dealers. Homes may be vetted.
