    15.2 bay thoroughbred gelding.


    13yrs old, 15.2 bay thoroughbred gelding. Sweet, loving thoroughbred. a pleasure to hack out alone or in company.
    currently shod on his fronts.
    On the ground - easy to handle, good with his feet. can be sensitive to brush round his legs but generally good. easy to catch, turn out and bring in, rugs and saddle. He can be head shy with his bridle and he has a particular technique which he prefers but after three or four sessions. he will accept it traditionally. This winter has been a tough one, usually winters out incredibly well although has dropped off a bit more than usual this winter. he is good to worm. I ride him bitless an awful lot but he has gone out in his snaffle when out with others. excellent to load and travel, bath and hose, good to handle on the ground. my 7yr old niece regularly handles him.

    ridden - A genuine pleasure to ride. he does predominantly hack. Excellent in traffic and open fields, will wonder for miles. Has been in the school. Not overly fussed. Has jumped with me although very little. 4 wonderful paces, he does have a long stride and does cover ground with ease. Very light mouth. I canter him in the halter in the farmers fields I have been granted access too. he is lovely out on his own. If he can, he will nap one or two strides but a kick and simple no and he will go for you.
    we have ridden out in most weather and he isn't overly fussed. never jogs home. good to mount. can be a fidget to mount out hacking but regular practise. this can be nipped in the bud.

    his only real flaw is his head shy with his bridle but as I have said, quickly corrects itself with regular sessions. is he a complete novice ride? No but a confident novice rider who would be willing to grow or is looking for an older thoroughbred to enjoy riding club activities or hacking. if you have access to transport and you can head to places like the beach or somewhere new. he will be ideal. I dont have access to regular transport so we hack everywhere from where we are. in the heart of the south downs. I personally think he would do well in some local in hand shows. perhaps with the right person, some ridden too. He will come with his full wardrobe. Bits, bridle, saddle, rugs, boots and a couple of extras.

    he does lunge but isn't fantastic and this needs work. my fields currently resemble the surface of the moon so I will not have him ridden on the fields but I would be more than happy to take you up onto the fields or the bridleways next to fair oak cross country.

    I do have a video of him being ridden after he had been put out to pasture for 6 months up on the south downs.
