    This is a very reluctant sale but due to my circumstances it is in Lenny’s best interests that he is found a new home.

    Lenny is a recently turned 7yo 16.3hh dark bay ex point to point TB.
    On the ground Lenny is very affectionate and easy to do, will stand for grooming and fuss happily.
    On the lunge he moves beautifully and has 3 lovely paces and a great jump.
    However, when it comes to mounting, Lenny is very nervous, I have been doing a lot of research including contacting his breeder, trainer and his previous vet and we believe he had a mounting accident while in Ireland. HOWEVER, his trainer worked with him solidly for 8 weeks and got him completely out of it. So at the moment the only way to mount Lenny easily is with a leg up however I feel that with the right person and the right work he will be able to overcome his fear of the mounting block and step.
    Once mounted, Lenny can be quite excitable for the first couple of minutes, for this reason I will highly recommend that a novice rider does not attempt to ride him as it takes an experienced rider to bring him forward. That being said, once he has had his moment he is an absolute diamond. However, I am not experienced enough to bring Lenny on and bring him back into the level of work he needs and therefore it is beneficial that he is to find a new, experienced and loving home.
    He was shod yesterday and required a second person to stand and hold a feed bucket while he had them done as he seemed very nervous, this was the first time I had, had his feet done as they were done the day before I bought them, he was sold to me as perfect to do in all ways and I’m just trying to be 100% honest in my advert. Whether this behaviour was because of the grass I can’t be sure.
    He has been wormed in the last fortnight also.
    He travels fine, I have only ever loaded and travelled him in a trailer so unsure what he is like with lorries and I have also never clipped him so I am unable to comment on that.
    He is perfect to catch in the field and comes in from the field fine.
    I wish there was more I would be able to do for him but I just do not have the confidence in me anymore and it would be a shame for him to be wasted in the field because I am unable to ride him.
    More pictures available on request.
    Please feel free to inbox me if you have any further questions. Thank you.
