Putting feelers out there for my RoR registered 16hh rising 7 year old gelding.
I rescued Benji in the middle of August last year, after his racing career ended (in April of last year) he was passed on & left to starve in a field without a blade of grass and was in a terrible state.
I was looking for a project, and came across him. His ad didn’t disclose much and so I went to view him and fell completely in love.
I desperately wanted to help him so I bought him and he came home with me.
I’ve spent the past few months nursing him back to health, putting some weight on him and giving him the tlc he deserves.
I’ve done some ground work with him (including long lining, lunging, and some clicker training) and I’ve also hacked him out and taken him to my local school a handful of times. - please note he is still very green in the school so will need his retraining to be continued.
I adore him, he’s got the sweetest nature and is extremely intelligent and willing to please.
He’s got impeccable ground manors and is brilliant with kids, he really is a gentle giant.
He retired from racing sound & with a clean bill of health. He’s a quick learner, fantastic in traffic & has 0 vices.
He would excel in the right hands as he’s got plenty of potential, he’ll be a fun project for someone who is looking for a blank canvas to bring the best out of. He’s certainly got the right attitude and is a pleasure to work with, however due to a change in my personal circumstances I am looking to find him a 5* home to continue his journey.
He’s currently barefoot and has brilliant feet for a Tb, and has also wintered really well living out 24/7 on ad-lib haylage and basic feed.
He is under-muscled but has filled out well from being fed & cared for.
