Spacey is a 16.1hh seven year old thoroughbred. He has the sweetest of natures along with being quiet and easy (You would think he was a cob in a thoroughbreds body, hes more easy than my connie) Since I've owned him in the past year and half he has come on leaps and bounds. I got him straight off the track with the aim to produce him. He has been in work for just under year after having six months off to give him a break after racing. This has allowed his mind to rest and reset.
Flatwork; Spacey is best suited to this. He has a lovely hind end movement and is currently working into the correct contact in all three paces. He currently has been out to a couple of shows were he is working at prelim level out and novice at home. He understands basic school movements such a leg yield and shoulder-fore. He works well both in the school and field, never strong or silly. Ridden in a simple loose ring snaffle with a lozenge. Photo is from his first time out and at this point he has never seen white boards and had only being in an indoor school once for about 5 minutes and he excelled all our expectations
Jumping: I haven't done much jumping due to my own confidence issues, however he happy pops a cross pole or a log.
Hacking: Spacey hacks alone and in company. He 110% in traffic doesn't bat an eyelid at tractors etc, honestly the best horse I've ever ridden in traffic. Would easily suit just being a happy hacker. Doesn't fizz up in open spaces, I have taken him in company up on the south downs where he was a good as gold. I could happy let my mum ride him with no worries.
ROR Eligible, was the first horse my sister got back on after a nasty fall, hes just the safe easy going type.
He is guttingly for sale as my other horse has an injury requiring surgery otherwise I'd been keeping him. Price reflects that he has been pin-fired on both front legs despite that I've been told by trainer that he only tweaked one of his tendons. This hasn't affected him in anyway with me and I highly doubt it being an issue.
