Lotus is a recently retired tb. He is one of the most genuine horses I have ever had in to retrain.
He is 12 years old, approx 16.3 and is by Beneficial.
He retired sound and sane after his last race at Newton Abbot 3 weeks ago. He has been a faithful racehorse with several wins to his name.
He is now looking for a slightly quieter life where he can turn his hoof to a range of new disciplines. He has been schooled nicely during his time in training and works softly in an outline.
He is fantastic to hack and has a huge walk. He hacks both alone and in company and is happy to go first or last. He is ridden in a snaffle and is great in open spaces. He has a fantastic canter and is bold cross country, where he is happy to cross a range of terrain. I have been letting him down slowly and doing of hacking to keep him ticking over. He has been out to the beach and was unphased by the sea and holidaymakers galore!
He is a bold jumper and with a bit of further work over poles would make a lovely event horse. He would make a lovely hunt horse or all round family ride.
He has an old tendon injury that happened as a young horse, but he has raced succefully for many years without it causing any issue.
He is still racing fit, and therefore lean, so will need further time to adjust to his new career. References will be required and a long term homing contract with a non racing agreement put in place.
Happy to deliver. Open to vetting and viewings. ...Read full description
