Horses for Loan£ 5011 yrsSkewbald
I'm looking for a potential loan home or sharer for my cob Jester.
Due to my youngster now being backed I'm struggling to find the time to keep him in regular work and give him the attention he deserves.
He is 11 years old and I've owned him for nearly 2 years. He came to me as a project to help out a friend and originally had a few ridden issues including napping whilst hacking. After some investigation he transpired that he had mild arthritis in both hocks so this was subsequently treated. Since then he has gone from strength to strength in his ridden work. He no longer naps and his schooling has improved greatly however I would still describe him as green in this area as needs to be 'ridden' to achieve his best work. Out hacking he can be spooky on his own but when in regular work this improves and we no longer have any issues with napping. He is a fun ride who enjoys a little jump too and whilst 99% of the time he is faultless he can chuck a buck or bounce around on the spot when excited. For this reason I would prefer an experienced rider not a novice.
On the ground he is a gentleman and can be handled by children and adults. He enjoys a good groom and a fuss. He is straight forward and easy to keep, can live in or out.
He is currently stabled on a DIY yard with good facilities where he can stay or I will consider him moving. I'm open to suggestions as to whether it is a part loan, full loan or share. A financial contribution will be required but this can be discussed. ...Read full description
