    Tex is for sale through no fault of his own. He is approx 14.3hh Appaloosa Gelding, 6years old. Tex is pretty much a blank canvas to bring on in any field. I bought him as a 4yr old but my parents became ill around the same time and I now find I do not have the time for him. He was sympathetically backed at 4yrs old with Natural Horsemanship methods and lots of spook-busting! He is quite confident and I have hacked him out and done some low key clinics with him, both groundwork and ridden where he took everything in his stride and was not silly or spooky, at all. I have had a few Enlightened Equitation (classical dressage) lessons with him and he is very quick to learn new things and carries himself really well. He is good to hack out, alone or in company, and even in new places has gone on in front to lead the way! (eg the beach – leading 12 other horses!)

    I had not ridden Tex for around a year, so he will need to backtrack in his training, although I have now started a few short hacks with him, recently and he hasn’t put a foot wrong, so I am sure it won’t take long for him to come back to the stage he was at before. He was not keen on schooling at first but once he started to learn new things, he seemed to enjoy it more.
    He is good to catch - he comes to call, good for the trimmer, will load easily into a lorry or a trailer. He is barefoot and has really strong, hard feet so I would not see him needing shoes at all in the future.
    Because he is so confident he will need clear boundaries and consistency, but he is a very respectful and friendly little chap.
    I would prefer for Tex to go to a 5* NH or EE type home and his home is more important than the price. PLEASE NO Time wasters – I have already had some and this is a hard enough sale, thank you
