7 rising 8 year old dark bay gelding for sale. He is a lovely boy who was bought last year for our daughter. Sadly, since starting secondary school she has not had the time to exercise him enough and he is basically wasted with us. We don't have access to a school so his riding has been severely cut back over the winter and so we have reached the sad decision that he needs to go to a home where he can have a set routine, much more exercise and be brought on by someone more experienced. We are a happy hacking home only. He can jump, hates polo . We've ridden him alone and in company and he is happy either way. He is good in traffic on country roads. Bad points? He can fling his head up to look at 'interesting things' , can fidget for the farrier until he knows he can't get away for it . He has an old eye injury (thorn?) that doesn't affect his sight and if he can find something to cut himself on he will . He can drag his back feet when allowed to get away with it. I had this checked out by the vet when we got him last year and it is pure laziness, nothing sinister. The more exercise he gets, the less he does this.
He is a very easy boy to do, stands still at the mounting block, loves cuddles and having his bum scratched.
Although my 12 year old daughter rides him, I would say he needs someone a bit older and more experienced. He is a young TB and he can still do the odd daft thing - nothing nasty though. Obviously the more work he is in the less he does this. He is snaffle mouthed and takes his confidence from his rider. Basically he is a lovely lad who needs a job to do. We thought we could work him enough but since buying him, I am working more and struggling to exercise my boy enough and like I said my daughter isn't able to ride him enough at this time of year. Please note he is very muddy and hairy at the moment!
