Rupert is a 10 year old, 16hh bay TB. He raced when he was 5 but hasn't done much since and the last couple of years he was abandoned in a field where I rescued him from. He is eligible for ROR.
Unfortunatley since getting him my life has dramtically change and I do not have the time to do this boy justice.
He is a clean slate and green in all areas including ridden work. He rides like a 4 year old and not his age although will rapidly improve with consistent work. He has very low mileage having only raced 7 times.
He has started to come into work and is showing wonderful paces and will excel in dressage. He is forward going and very responsive with showing good progress coming off the leg leading to laterial work. A light snaffle mouth and not strong at all. He is flashy with a good presence in the arena.
Lunging has been established along with walk and trot in an outline; canter is a work in progress. He has been on some simple hacks and happy rides across open fields. He hacks alone and in company. He has seen some poles and low jumps. Please note, he is still green in all of these areas.
He is a sensitive horse which needs careful, kind but firm handling around the stable but he is a sweetie outside of the stable area.
Due to these reasons, he is not a novice riders horse and will need an experienced peron who has handled lively ex-racers before. He is a one rider type of horse and given time and trust, he will do anything for his rider.
Rupert will happily live out all year round and has good feet for a TB. He is bear foot behind.
Priced to sell however, I will be vetting riders abilites to ensure it is a good match for this lovely horse.
