    Roadie is a 17.2 13yo TB gelding who has tried almost everything. He is possibly one of the best natured Horses I know and if I where in a different position I’d try to find any way to keep him.


    His ground manners are impeccable and will stand untied to be groomed, rugged or unrruged , tacked up , be bathed and for the farrier or vet etc without thinking about going anywhere. He has never gone to kick out bite etc and I truly believe it is noowhere in his nature to do so.

    His flatworm basics are all there and if you can truly ride and know how to push all the right buttons he can really start to produce some lovley work. He has previously competed rda dressage and regular dressage doing well

    Jumping he has got a incredible jump when he wants to use t but can lack the confidence and can be a little spooky/ looky if he is out of practice so is very dependent on the rider to get him going but once he is going he gets better and better and has easily schooled around a small course of 1m at home without hesitation. On occasion he can get proud of himself after jumping and get a little jolly to ride for a few stides but it is nothing that a good experienced rider couldn’t handle.

    He hasn’t been known to cope with the hunting atmosphere too well however I don’t have personal experience with this so cannot say much. He is a star to hack out alone or in company , can sometimes get jiffy on the way home but providing the rider is experienced it’s nothing unmanageable. He may have a little spook at a few scary horse demons like boulders or a drain cover but again with the right rider or another horse to get confidence from it’s not a issue.

    He is fab to catch in a field and bring in or turn out and is never bolshy or pushy. He loves a good fuss and as much attention as he can get. To load on his own he can take some time thinking about it but it just takes a small amount of patience and he goes in nothing silly however if he is loading with a freind on he goes on straight away no questions asked. Up to date with vaccinations and worming .

    Needs a loving home where he can be given a job and a routine and he will thrive off of it. No novices as despite being able to put a complete novice on board and him not put a foot wrong for the ride he will eventually start to test you like any horse to see how much he can get away with but if experienced and confident rider he will benefit much more from and you will get great things out of him . Plenty of pictures and videos available on request.
