Rupee is a very sweet liver chestnut ex polo pony.
I bought Rupee in December from schooling/sales livery where he was doing everything from dressage to show jumping and cross country. During his time in schooling livery and when I tried him, he displayed no behavioural problems or naughtiness at all. He was green but very sweet and willing.
When I brought him home he remained sweet and did everything I asked of him. Including hacking with my very novice partner.
Unfortunately over the next 6 months he started to show some bucking behaviour after jumps and when schooling. He has had his back checked 3 times by two different people, has had his teeth and saddle done. This knocked my confidence and as I grew less confident so did he, and the bucking got more frequent, though never more severe. His price reflects this.
Rupee would be the perfect horse of a lifetime for the right person, he takes his confidence from his rider and needs firm boundaries to get the best of him. He has bags of talent and scope over jumps and lovely paces when ridden properly in the school. He loves hacking and is rarely spooky, though he is very green in the school.
With the right person he would go so far, however unfortunately that person isn't me and I feel he would do a lot better with someone who is confident enough to push him through this firmly.
Rupee lives out 24/7 and would prefer this, he finds living in on busy yards stressful, though this has massively improved over time, so if stabled he would need time to settle and adjust
