For sale due to rider having a fall and losing confidence. Rolo is a lovely horse with a fantastic nature, and lovely to ride. sadly he is for sale as seen below. Owner has told us he looked after her in the school in walk, trot and canter, owner was happy to ride him alone on yard with no one else there, Owner is returning to riding so is not the most balanced of riders and unfortunately owner has come off and has lost all her confidence.
Below is how we found Rolo and videos with us and then is owners account of owning him. Rolo is for sale in KENT he is sold from field as owners has no one to ride. He has recently passed a 5 stage vetting and is up to date with vaccs and back.
How we found Rolo and videos with us - In the school, Rolo is a push button ride, he has lovely balanced paces, and a rocking horse canter, he is forgiving and sensible. He responds well to leg aids without being sharp or over responsive. He best word to describe Rolo is genuine.
Jumping - Rolo is no superstar show jumper, but certainly looks after his rider, he is steady into a fence and happily they pops around a course, he will jump up to 80cm and looks after his rider and get them out of trouble is they have not seen a stride. He will happily pop a fence and pull up or ride on to the next.
open spaces - Rolo loves a good canter around open fields and will happily jump the odd log and ditch down the fields. He is not forward or strong, alone or in company and is easy to pull up, he doesn’t get stong or fizzy, and always in a snaffle.
Hacking - Rolo hacks alone and in company and will go first or last, he will happily take the lead or pootle along at the back, he has passed all traffic on our country lanes.
Manners, Rolo is good to catch, lead, bring in and turn out, he loads and travels well, he is good to tack up. However, no horse is perfect and Rolo is scared of the farrier, so will need time and patience and a very kind farrier.
who would he suit? Rolo could be a fab all rounder for riding club, hacking, fun rides, mother/teen share.

How owner has found Rolo –
Rolo leads out to the field well, often walking out in a pair with my other pony, where he respects all fencing and is friendly with other horses. Will happily come to you for his headcollar if he senses a treat in your hand. Can be nervous when tied up on the yard but is a lot happier being loose groomed in his stable. Tacks up nicely and was lightly schooled and stood well at the mounting block. Sadly, due to an awkward fall from him in the school which has left me with concussion causing memory loss of the ride and other injuries, I am unable to ride for at least 8 weeks and have completely lost my confidence. Rolo is too nice to become a field ornament and would suit a more confident better seated rider. Due to rider injury he is sold from field.
