Colour BayGelding16.1 handsThoroughbred
Jim is a 16.1h, 11 year old Bay Thoroughbred Gelding. Jim is ROR eligible and ran just 7 races.
He is an impressive, head turning horse with a big, flashy movement on the flat and a keen jumper. Jim is a keen cross country machine and has previously competed up to BE100
I bought Jim 7 months ago as my dream horse to introduce me and teach me about the world of eventing, and that he has done. I am totally devastated that due to a recent and unforeseen change in job and subsequent pay cut, I can no longer afford to give him the competition lifestyle that I feel he should have.In the short time I have had him, he has taken me around my first ever event at BE80, and we have also done unaffiliated hunter trials for my own experience.
He is ready for somebody to get on and going with him, in preparation for next season.
His dressage does need work as he can get excited on the flat but he is coming on leaps and bounds and I have no doubt that this will be perfected with time.
He is sound, fit and ready to go. Excellent to box, shoe, clip, bath. Passed a 2 stage vetting when I bought him 7 months ago. Fully vaccinated and wormed to date. He has regular physio and shoeing, saddle checks and dentist.
I do not hack out as my yard is on a busy 50mph road and so I try to avoid it as personal preference. He has hunted in his previous home
Jim is a forward going, blood type horse with a lot to give and would suit a competitive rider. I am still in touch with the lady that owned him before me for three years who can vouch for him
He will remain in work and competing as far as I can afford until he finds his new home
