Pat is a handsome 9 year old, approx 16.1hh dark bay thoroughbred who is looking for someone to give him the love, attention and fun he deserves. He is an ex point to pointer who retired from racing in 2018. Good to load, shoe, catch etc and lives out with mixed group.
Lovely paces and been placed in unaffiliated dressage competitions just a few months into his retraining. Has XC schooled and proved brave and bold and good to hack alone and in company on main road including over motorway bridges. Lived out all winter with no issues.
Having bought him in January 2018, we brought him back into work before turning him away for the summer to gain some weight and give him a break. He was brought back into work in winter 2018 following some exploratory work on his feet due to intermittent soundness issues.
Vet took foot and navicular X rays. He had no obvious abnormalities on the x ray. The coffin joint was clear but we decided to medicate it anyway and see if it made a difference. We also had heart bar shoes fitted to support his feet. He's had no foot soundness issues since.
He then had an unfortunate field accident in Spring 2019 where he ruptured his peroneus tertius and had to have 3 months of box rest before walking work commenced. He appears to have made a complete recovery from this.
He was then turned away summer 2019 due to rider pregnancy and lived out all winter. Has been sat on since and was a saint - the type of horse you can not ride for weeks/months and not worry when you get back on. He is an absolute gentleman under saddle.
He has only ever been in intermittent light work since January 2018 as reflected above and with 2 other horses regularly competing alongside a full time job, he has not and will not have the time and attention he deserves.
Price reflects this and good home is more important. This is an honest advert about his history to date with us and he could be a perfect happy hacker or all round riding club horse. Has nice enough paces to go affiliated dressage with the right work and is ROR eligible. Previously raced under name of PatMac.
An super project for someone looking for an easy to do, genuine horse with a great attitude.
