15hh 16yo Project Gelding

HorsesAll RoundersHappy Hackers£ 1,700 ONO

Bailey is a 16 year old 15hh Gelding. I bought him as a project In January but just don’t have the time to put into him which he needs.This is a very honest ad as I’m wanting him to go to the right home. Before his last owners owned him he was rescued so has had a rough life, we are not 100% sure what has happened to him but it definitely has affected him and takes time for him to trust. He isn’t sound in his back right leg so light work would be best for him.

Bailey is ridden bitless as he just does not enjoy having a bit in his mouth, with time and getting him used to it I’m sure he will be fine but he was sold to me riding in a side pull/ bitless as this was a lot more comfortable in this. When I was riding regularly and schooling regularly he was coming along really well in walk/trot/canter. We do believe he has some sort of trotter/ pacer in him so this does affect him in work. but when in regular work this does get better. He can be strong and forward in the school and can also be very spooky but if he trusts you and you reassure him he’s fine.

Bailey prefers hacking as it is much more exciting for him. He hacks great in company but has to be in front and he’s very forward and excited but nothing dangerous, he may have the odd spook but he is much more confident when hacked out in company. When he is hacked out alone he is forward and strong can have a few spooks, he is very nosey and just likes to know what is going on.

He can be strong and try to pull you around when leading but not to be nasty. He can be a bit bulshy in the stable but he just needs to know who is boss. He hasn’t been lunged a lot so this is all still new to him and would need to take time to get him going well on the lunge.
He is good for the farrier he is just very fidgety but with a hay net whilst tied up he is fine. Also he loves the let a farrier know he is there but it’s just him being nosy.
Bailey is a lovely horse and I’m gutted to have to sell him, I bought him as a project myself but I don’t have the time to put into him which he needs. He isn’t dangerous is anyway he is just a grumpy old man in a 4 year old horses body. He is very fidgeting and doesn’t like standing still, he is such a nosey boy and just wants to know what’s going on around him. He would never do anything to hurt anyone he has just had a bad life and being brought into work as a light hacker with his previous owner everything is new to him and he needs to gain trust in you before anything. He would be perfect for a mother and daughter who would want a project together. rider just to let him know who is in control. He will come along lovely once he has had time put into him and I wish I could do it myself. He just needs to be brought back to basics and be taught everything all over again.

He will be sold from the field.
