Horses for Loan£ 2013 yrs 2 mthsChestnut
Let me introduce you to Murphy. He is 13 years old and a retired pacer with a promising future for the right loaner. He is passported as a standard bred and is 15.2 hands, so nicely in the middle range for an adult rider. We've had Murphy for a year now, but things keep getting in the way of us being able to give him the time and dedication he deserves, so we have decided that it would be best for him if someone would be able to come along and take him further.
Unless you have an alternative that is local to the ST5 area, he would absolutely need to stay at the current yard in Audley, Staffordshire. There is an indoor arena with jump equipment and plenty of opportunities for lovely hacks, either on your own or with some of the other owners (there's a really nice relationship between us all at the current livery yard).
Murphy needs someone with experience, please NO novices or beginners as he needs a firm and knowledgeable hand. He loves jumping and will pop over the jumps just for the sake of it when he's having a "chill" loose in the arena. Saying that, he is an absolute fuss pot for grooming and will happily stand for ages whilst my granddaughters wash him down. He is a big hugger and likes to rest his head on top of mine or on my shoulder.
Spending quality riding/groundwork time is much more important than duties, but there may be times over winter when you could be asked to chip in with his stable rota for turning out/ feeding/ cleaning.
If you have experience and want a willing partner to take you places, maybe our Murphy could be just the gentleman you're looking for. ...Read full description
