The time has come for us to sadly sell Alfie. Alfie is my mums horse and due to health issues within the family over the last three years it has been difficult to find time to ride and enjoy him and with even more recent lifestyle changes the time has indeed come to find him a new home.

Alfie is ridden and benefitted from training with a well established dressage rider following backing. He schools well, is snaffle mouthed, is steady and safe with the inexperienced rider but super fun and up for it with a competent rider, he jumps well, has lovely paces and would suit a person looking to bring him onto compete in any sphere, he will be up for it! He would be a perfect good old fashioned all rounder/family mount. He should still be considered green! He has done very little over the years.

He is the kind of horse that can be left for weeks and even months at a time without even sitting on him and tack him up and go. During the six week holidays this year he hadn't been worked for over 6 months, my sister in law tacked up and rode, even popped him over some cross poles. Her children both inexperienced then had a ride on him.

Alfie hasn't been on the road/hacked since he was being backed/long reined, but I will be sure to take him out over the next couple of weeks to gauge whether or not he is still just as calm as he was as a three year old.

Alfie is fantastic with the Farrier (is bare foot), vet, children etc etc. He is ridiculously food minded though, so little ones should avoid fingers being in his mouth area.

His new home must be aware that he will require at least three lines of electric fencing as he will most probably go on an adventure of his own and we have never known a horse to find mud to roll in quite like him... Alfie is quirky, absolutely hilarious and due to him maybe once a year deciding to get excitable on the way to the field he is lead to the paddocks in a chifney, this isn't really used and is more for peace of mind.

Alfie will be coming back into work within the next couple of weeks and as his fitness and readiness to compete next season is achieved, his advertised price will increase. I will try over the next couple of weeks to get a video of him doing some basic work and some further photographs.

£4750 including Tack - (Wintec GP and unbranded bridle)

Due to health issues as explained above, my horse (Registered Shire Mare 17.2hh) is also for sale... if there would be the rare opportunity for them to stay together, we would happily negotiate a better price.
