A very honest advert, the good, the bad and the beautiful (as he’s anything but ugly!).
Infield Welsh Prince (Prince)
15.3hh, 9yo welsh section D chestnut gelding. Having owned Prince for 2 years, it has been an incredibly difficult decision to decide to find him a new home due to a new job and change in circumstances.
Prince requires a knowledgeable, quiet rider to get the best from him. He can work absolutely beautifully and has 3 expressive paces, but can be a bit spooky at times. I recently took him out to his first dressage test, where he behaved impeccably and was placed 7th out of 16. He received some lovely positive comments from the judge, and I feel this is something he could really excel in. I have done small amounts of jumping with him, again he can be spooky, but this is something that improves massively with a consistent routine. I find him best doing a little and often approach and popping a few fences a couple of times a week, rather than leaving him longer between jump sessions. Prince is fantastic to hack alone and in company, I’ve hacked on busy roads near the yard he is kept at, and have also boxed up to lots of off road hacking routes which he absolutely loves, he will happily go for a few hours.
Prince is good to catch, bath, clip, shoe and with the dentist. He has also loaded and travelled fantastic with me (this has always been done in a 3.5T lorry). Although the majority of the time he behaves perfectly, he can very occasionally be a little bit bolshy to deal with on the ground, so again needs someone confident and knowledgeable in this situation to put a stop to it (an example is getting strong and pulling to the field - as mentioned this happens very rarely but I want any prospective buyers to know the good and bad!). He can also very occasionally windsuck, this isn’t done by cribbing and holding on to something, he just makes a noise inhaling air.
This is a completely honest advert, as it’s in Princes best interests that I find him someone that is able to deal with everything mentioned. He is a fabulous horse, and would be perfect for a knowledgable rider that maybe has a smaller budget and doesn’t mind working on furthering his education.
Prince is up to date with the farrier, vaccinations, dentist and worming. Tack and full wardrobe are available separately including a made to measure Black Country saddle, fitted December 2020.
