Cougar Kid is an approximately 16hh 10 year old gelding.
CK came off the track sound in November of 2020. He was turned away to enjoy some down time before coming back into work to train for his new career as a riding horse.
While he is building up strength, he is enjoying lots of hacking and is schooling lightly in walk and trot. We have had multiple people take him for hacks, including novices, and he has been a little sweetheart. Very unspooky to hack, and nothing has really phased him so far, although he does get a little confused about traffic. He's never been silly, but it's as though he expects them to go off road and stop for him, rather than the other way around!
His schooling is coming along really nicely and he's developing a lovely self carriage, which he naturally takes out hacking. We're currently working him long and low as much as possible and encouraging to stretch down over his back on his hacks.
He's still green in the school, and is only having one or two gentle sessions a week, but he just needs someone who will give him time and patience to strengthen up and work his body in the correct way after over 6 months off.
Exchaser, so has a super jump, but has also worked over coloured poles and jumps.
He's up to date with feet, teeth, vaccinations and has had two chiropractic treatments since coming into work.
Great to load and box, always easy to catch, lives in or out with mares or geldings (though he is inclined to get picked on so has to have a nice herd). He has a very low pain threshold, so he can be a bit of a baby about flies etc!
We have very much fallen in love with this horse, and he will make someone a brilliant prospect to do any job. We can certainly see him eventing in the future.
His owner would like a quick sale, hence low price, but this will increase with the more he does with us....Read full description
