Hard decision to make but Ronnie needs another loving home. He is a striking 17.2hh 11-year-old Irish passported sports horse. We have owned him for 6 years and is well schooled and snaffle mouthed. He is a large, very loving horse but in an ideal world needs his own one to one human. He can be little spooky at times and needs a quiet confident rider to tell him that everything is ok and who can gain trust from. He doesn’t buck or rear but has been known to spin on occasions if unsure. He has competed successfully at Elementary dressage and will pop around a course of show jumps, although isn’t always as careful as he should be! He does enjoy going out for dressage competitions or a farm ride and is happy to school at home or away.
Over 18 months ago he had low grade damage to his hind suspensory ligaments and started to show some arthritic changes. Under vet supervision he was medicated, treated and has since been sensibly and slowly brought back into work – the vet has now signed him off as fully sound again. He now needs an experienced, confident rider to bring him back to his full potential and get his mind back on the job.
The reason for selling Ronnie is that we just don’t have the time to give him and which he deserves. He has so much to give and really benefits from having his own human to love and to love him. This has been so apparent throughout the summer while he has been on part loan - he loves having a job to do and regular attention (he gives the most amazing snuggles) He worked really well but unfortunately circumstances have changed which is why he is for sale. The right home is more important than price which is negotiable.
