Wanted - by a loving knowledgeable financially stable family with own yard (directly behind house) based in the East Midlands/Warks border countryside.
Kind, considerate and handsome Irish x type gelding (or mare). Happy soul, forward going responsive ride, around 15.2hh under 12 years. Brave cross country, don’t mind working on showjumping. Potential to do a half decent dressage test after some schooling. Loves to be kept fit by mainly hacking out safely on roads equally over fields which are exciting and will plod (quickly), alone or in company, with middle aged mum, but will go up the gears with very experienced 20 something daughter (far more fun!!).
Can be nervous with new situations/has a few quirks but brave enough to get over them. Can be excellent with vet, blacksmith, boxing. Well mannered and easy to do. Clipping issues can be worked on. No serious vices. Concealed scars, small splint not a big issue. Loves to be a kind horse with mares/geldings and likes routine with stabling/grazing. Equally likes a specific special treatment routine.
Must come from a loving private home where time/finances/change of circumstances are forcing a very sad sale. Ongoing contact welcomed.
Budget of low 4 figures. In return for a home for life, where he will be treated like a prince and want for nothing. Please do not comment that I am asking the impossible/if I can’t afford a substantial purchase price I can’t afford to keep a horse - I have simply described our horse of a life time who we recently lost suddenly to an extremely rare, untreatable condition. (At point of sale His old owner wanted the best home for him, where she was always welcome to visit/keep in contact and did not want to gain financially).
We could never replace him but need to give the same love and devotion to another be it mare or gelding....Read full description
