    • One in a Million  for sale in United Kingdom

    This is an incredibly difficult decision and it is with much sadness I write this, but I have to sell my lad Guapo, he is very special and much loved. However due to changes in circumstances I cannot afford two horses now. Please only contact me if you are over 18 and can offer a forever home and have time to give him the love he deserves. Only 6* forever home for this special boy, hence no time wasters or dealers..


    Guapo is a handsome 15hh, 11 year old (12yrs in July), bay, fully papered microchipped Andelucian gelding. He is up to date with vaccinations and worming. I imported him from Spain 5 years ago and since he has been with me, we have focused mainly on schooling and hacking as I don’t like to jump myself. He has a very trainable attitude and is currently working at Novice level on the flat at home with a lovely natural outline in all 3 paces and has an established medium trot and medium canter and rides direct transitions and counter canter easily. He snaffle mouthed but forward thinking, whilst being safe at the same time as he does not bite, kick, buck, rear, spook, nap or bolt. He thrives on work but does not change if he isn’t ridden for a few days so is easy to do.

    He has attended flatwork and polework clinics where he loads impeccably, travels well and does not get het up when at a new venue. He does not get tense in a new arena and is relaxed and happy when he was working with other horses. Although I have not competed him yet, I am confident that he would excel at dressage and would be able to compete easily up to Novice. He would be suited to someone older looking to concentrate on dressage and hacking.

    He hacks well, better in company and is happy to give a lead to other horses as he has been doing with another rider and myself on my youngster. I have hacked him by himself without problems but would say he needs to trust you first. He has been hacked down busy roads and is 100% in all traffic and in open spaces. He is happy to go in front or behind and will walk, trot and canter without getting strong. He went to Thetford forest for 4 days in October and he behaved impeccably in his new surroundings.

    Sadly, Guapo did his Superficial flexor tendon 3yrs ago whilst grazing in a field and had stem cell therapy to ensure that he had the best chance of recovery. I brought him back into work in November 2016 after giving him 10 months off to recover and he has been 100% sound ever since. He is currently in full work where he is schooled or hacked most days. His price is reflected because of this injury not his ability, he does have a weight limit of 11 stone and is only for sale to a non jumping home.

    He is 100% to catch, shoe, clip, load and travel. Because he lived in Spain for so long, he has never lived out with me and likes his home comforts! he is also a good doer so is happy with limited turnout. He has no vices, although if it can be called a vice he will call if left alone as he likes company as do many horses. Guapo is quite subservient with other horses and never kicks or bites but can be picked on. He has never had laminitis, but he is just prone to weight gain because he is quite a foody.

    Guapo is only for sale as I unfortunately do not have time for 2 horses as said previously. I have had short term loaners but do not feel this is good for him going forwards as I want him to have the one-to-one care and love he deserves. I am open to him going on full loan (although would need to stay at current yard in Mundon/Purliegh with excellent facilities), or would consider handing him over to a long-term permanent home.Future homes will be viewed and contact maintained hopefully once sold to ensure all is well.

    Saddle and tack by separate negotiation.
