Draught horse wanted for dressage rider in Shropshire. Second horse to take over from Irish draught mare who has cancer (and is blind). Wanted to help her slow down and new horse to slowly do more and become main horse as she can’t do as much. Will ride each equally to begin with.
Safe and sane draught horse, light or heavy don’t mind, 16 hands or above, 10 years or under, vice and health problem free, will be vetted. Not a baby please, substantial ridden experience but doesn’t need to have competed just nothing too green.
Must be an all rounder able to hack alone and in company. I enjoy showing, dressage am taught by 2 x (para and) Olympians and fancy dress for fun!! Side saddle, drag hunting, learning to jump, you name it. Not a novice, can handle a horse not a robot, don’t want anything I need to kick along, need something forward going please but snaffle bits all the way. Safe sane and sensible are key words.
I am looking for something with breaks on a good gallop and being able to stand while others are doing so around us.
Doesn’t need to be a racer, we can quite happily plod along at our own speed of canter not gallop but don’t want to be kicking on as my legs can tire.
Any questions please let me know.

Will be absolutely spoilt. Looking for HORSE FOR LIFE not just a project to sell, a pet first. Forever home awaits!!! Read more
