To stay at current yard near Bury St Edmunds Suffolk, to share with current owner up to 4 days a week, to include yard duties. Financial contribution required, £150 pcm all inclusive.
Ted is 14 years old and 15.2. He’s a cob cross - I suspect Cob x Connemara but his passport lacks any detail! I’ve had him four years and he’s currently a happy hack with me, he schools very nicely and has obviously been educated very well. He loves to jump but doesn’t get to do it often as I don’t get on with jumping. He’s good in traffic and will hack alone or in company. He’s got quite a sensitive back and feeds off the riders confidence, therefore he needs a confident rider. He’s not malicious but will duck a shoulder or pop a mini buck to test his rider and see if he can avoid work - typical cob behaviour! He’s lovely to handle and catch, and is kept barefoot.
I ride in a western saddle (with English stirrups, girth and bridle) due to a hip injury, but he’s a med wide fit and happy for a sharer to ride in an English saddle if they’re happy to supply!
Currently based just south of Bury St Edmunds on diy livery, stabled over the winter in line with yard policy but lives out spring to autumn - ground permitting! There’s lovely hacking on the farm and airfield, large ménage and lunging pit, horsewalker and hot shower box. Really lovely community of people! Read more
