Horses for Loan£ 256 yrsSkewbald
For part loan to stay at current yard ONLY. Not for full loan or LWVTB and will never be for sale.
13.2hh 6 year old lightweight cob mare. Rides English, Western and Drives in a cart.
Phoenix is a lovely gentle pony currently ridden by a young girl with autism, who loves her and is becoming much more confident with her, but there is a possibility of them moving to a new yard so Phoenix will be without a loaner.
Phoenix has her basic schooling down, can leg yield, walk, trot and canter, knows canter leads, and has begun to learn to jump, currently jumping 70cm.
Phoenix right now is mostly a happy hacker, she is safe and sensible on the roads without fear of traffic, and safe on large open fields and grassy tracks.
Phoenix lives out 24/7 on ad lib hay and is an easy keeper. Doesn't need to be mucked out, though help with poo picking is always appreciated.
Phoenix would be a great show pony for local shows, she has nice, flashy movement and holds herself in a nice frame.
Phoenix is bitless and barefoot, that is non negotiable. Phoenix was rescued straight off the slaughter truck at the ferry port in 2016 and was badly abused and neglected. She is happiest bitless and will not take a bit. She is safe to ride in just a headcollar and doesn't need a bit at all. The kids ride her without one at all speeds.
Phoenix would do well at things like endurance and low level eventing or hunter trials and would thrive out on small drag hunts.
Phoenix has a lot of potential but I do not have the time for her due to starting a new full time job.
Phoenix is good to catch, groom, pick out feet, see farrier, tack up, load, bath, lead, etc. Can lead other horses off her or be led on her. Phoenix can throw a small buck every so often if she gets over excited, but has never attempted to throw a rider. One girl came off during an accident out galloping when a horse in front began to rodeo big time and spooked Phoenix. I was videoing at the time so video can be seen to show it wasn't purposeful, the girl got straight back on and we continued our gallop without further incident, this is the only time a rider has ever come off Phoenix. She has never worried the girls who ride her and carries them like they are precious jewels. They hack out for hours at a time on the roads.
Phoenix deserves much more time than I can give her right now, last summer she was in full time work and was thriving with it.
Phoenix is situated in Swanley, Kent.
It is £25 per week to loan Phoenix for as many days as you like, or £10 a day if you prefer a set amount of days.
