Horses for Loan£ 10019 yrsChestnut
I’m looking for an adult rider to loan my lovely horse on a full time basis whilst I am away at University (starting September 2021). Belle is a 15’2, 19 year old Irish Sports Horse and has spent most of her 7 years with me as a riding school horse. She is now semi retired and enjoys a quiet life as a happy hacker. I am looking for a confident handler as Belle can be a bit stroppy on the ground sometimes and needs someone to be in control, but is as good as gold out hacking and is a very steady and pleasurable ride. As she is getting on a bit, she has a sachet of bute in her feed everyday to keep her happy and comfortable. We are currently based at a small family run yard in Bradenham and she is currently in during the day and out overnight with four other horses (both mares and gelding). We have beautiful off-road hacking routes right on our doorstep, and there is plenty more to discover. There is always someone at the yard to turn the horses out and bring them in again, so you won’t have to be there everyday to feed her, although it would be ideal if you were able to help with small yard duties a couple of times a week. The current livery price is £400 pcm, not including the bute (bute is normally about £100 lasting approximately a month and a half), farrier (£70), bedding or any other cost. The right person will ideally be able to ride 3/4 times a week (she is a bit of a chonk with all this grass coming through!), they must be responsible and not push Belle further than she can go as she is getting on a bit now and isn’t able to go as far or fast as she would normally like!
I am more than happy to discuss moving her to a new location. If this is to be the case, obviously the total price is still unknown, but the cost of Belle’s bute must be covered as this is essential to her well-being. Price can be discussed/potentially shared for the right person.
Belle is a lovely girl and I hope I can find someone who loves her as much as I do. For any enquiries and more details/pictures please contact me and we can discuss things further. I will be happy for the loan to start as soon as possible for the right person to make sure everyone is happy together.
Thank you! ☺️...Read full description
