    • 15.3 Thoroughbred Gelding with BD points and experience for sale in United Kingdom

    Apple is a 12 yr old 15.3 TB gelding that was bought up in Ireland but not raced, leaving Ireland as a 4yr old. He is on an Irish Weatherbys passport. We bought him 2 years ago as a stand in whilst my daughters main ride recovered from injury and, the family we bought him from are the only owners in England and we are still in touch with them. We were told he had done a bit of everything unaffiliated but mostly dressage. We kept up the dressage and whilst he is happy popping fences at home he has anxiety issues if trying to jump him competitively.


    His flatwork is really, really good, and he has been placed in all 5 BD prelims in his first year of affiliation accruing 25 points He qualified and competed in BD national finals for TBs (vale view) and for BYRDS (Sheepgate), he also qualified for the UK Riders National finals but sadly we couldn't attend due to school commitments, since affiliating him we haven't bothered with unaffiliated events other than a few combined training classes winter/ spring this year. My Daughter is continuing to grow and is now too tall for him and hence he will best serve someone that is the correct height for him and has the time and patience for him, with those two things he still has plenty of talent and potential to achieve more. We believe as does our flatwork trainer that he is easily competitive at Novice level dressage in the right hands and, potentially more.

    Apple needs working (preferably daily) and challenging as he is an energetic, very bright horse but can lack self confidence which means he can have the occasional spook. I would suggest he is not a novice ride for that reason, but he can also be very sweet. He will hack in groups like a pro and on his own in a familiar place but, hacking on his own in a completely new environment is not recommended. He travels well and is good to load, he is easy with a PATIENT vet, farrier and dentist but clipping needs sedating/twitching. He will crib a little if stabled with other horses that crib, but this seems to be an attention seeking issue rather than a bad habit as he stops when not in human company. He will happily stay in if the weather is poor and overnight all the time but he is better if at least turned out every day or better still living out if not too wet. As a true TB if you leave him out full time you have to be VERY careful with his feet as we have finally got 4 really good quality hooves.


    He is fully up to date with worms, teeth, feet, physio and vet.
    Will come with full wardrobe of rugs and travel boots.
    Dressage saddle and tack available by separate negotiation.
