Horses for Loan9 yrsBlackGelding
Beautiful black Thoroughbred Gelding for full loan.
I have rehabilitated this horse back from a career racing injury. He has been fully sound for over a year and has adapted well to retraining. He goes beautifully on the flat and has won a few dressage competitions. I haven't jumped him nor do I want him to go to a jumping home.
He is Anxious, so he requires an experienced owner who knows about thoroughbreds. He has raced from a young age so the transition to a slower life has taken time to adjust. He needs riding 3 times a week so remain happy. He forms attachments if living with only 1 other horse or pony which was be difficult to manage.
He is best suited to a yard with a herd or group.
If living alone he will box walk and field walk and generally be unhappy so this isnt an option for him.
He is perfect to hack, totally safe. I have led my children from him. If cantering with others, you will need to be at the front or no brakes! I have only ridden him in a snaffle but he is an ex-racehorse so no novices or young riders please.
I have travelled him alone, he is fine with an experienced handler. I have competed him alone.
He has had Christmas period off and I have resigned myself to the reality he needs more consistent work and would be happier in a better suited home ( I have 3 young kids), so he is not massively fit and can be handful when separated from my sons pony.
Only the best home for this special horse, so please don't be offended if I ask lots of questions. Full loan ideally in Berks, Oxon, Wilts or Hampshire.
