    PROJECT HORSE SOLD AS SEEN.


    Experienced 5* home required

    Very sad sale of our 15.1hh 14 year old standardbred. When we bought him around 8 months ago he was very underweight with no muscle no balance and didn't know how to carry himself.
    We have worked hard with him and he's put on the weight, and gained muscle but this work has unfortunately shown that hes just too much horse for my 12 year old daughter, nothing bad just too forward going.
    He is an ex pacer and so is a ride/drive horse. I had intended to get him back in harness however just dont have the time to do this anymore.

    He has lovely paces and together with his looks could go far in dressage with a confident teen.
    He has also free jumped 90cm and loved it so could potentially do well in showjumping as well.

    Good points

    Dope on a rope to handle and lead.
    Fantastic to bath and with farrier
    Good stable manners
    Good to catch
    Easy to load
    Never bronzed or bolted

    Bad points

    Can throw a buck or mini rear when not in regular work.
    (I am trying to be as honest as possible here without talking him down so he has been known to "rear" he lifted his front feet 20 or 30cm off the floor and his buck is a hind leg kicks out behind. He has never bronced or bolted with us)
    Can be very nervous if rider is nervous hence not a novice ride.

    Will come with tack and 5 rugs.
