    I’m looking for a new long term home for Mac. I adore him, but really want a horse to compete medium / advanced medium dressage, and I’m not a talented rider, and I’ve come to the conclusion this isn’t where Mac’s heart lies. He’s 15 but sound, sure footed, short backed with tireless energy and joy of life.


    Mac is a bit of a marmite horse, I have tried to be totally honest about him below. I am looking for a lifetime home for him at 15, but would consider loan with view to buy to check he’s going to be adored. Only consider sale to someone able sit his spooks and laugh at him and to offer a home with lots of hacking, lots of turnout and intending to keep him long term. I am in no rush, and looking to find him a great match.

    Good points
    - Largely bomb proof to hack - large machinery, farm animals, dogs, bikes, anything really.
    - can ride and lead him or lead others from him, hack and school bareback, hack along A road (lorry broke down)
    - Schooled to medium with 35 BD points at medium with green flying changes (competed at 3 BD regionals, and 3 Area Festivals)
    - Hacks alone or in company
    - Easy to handle, clip, shoe, load, travel, compete solo,
    - Super energy, joy of life, friendliness, pretty much tireless, very sure footed
    - Poppet to handle very gentle and friendly
    - Loves turnout, v hardy, happily live out
    - sound and healthy

    Not so good points

    - Doesn't reliably canter behind out hacking. Worse in open spaces or bigger groups. I've cracked this for short periods in the 5 years I've owned him but not lasted.
    - Has a very quick and sharp spook at silly things - sand different colour / fallen thistle / solo log / person standing by school fence etc
    - On some levels he's a dressage school master, on others he's frustrating and inconsistent and goes tense - quirky
    - He does stable - was fine at camp for 48 hours and is currently stabled 8-2pm but can box walk and be unsettled if upset eg if sees other horses being turned out or are lots of small children running about.
    - capable but inconsistent jumper with quirky stop (he’s an ex show jumper and evented up to Novice before change of career to dressage).

    I have dozens of videos and hundreds of photos. Please to contact me for more and ask questions. (the video linked below is shaky until about 1min15 then shows him running through a medium test). I think you can find more videos under my YouTube user name.
