A rare opportunity to buy an outstanding Exmoor Stallion. Bournefield Tudor Rose needs no introduction.

Advertised on behalf of his owner.

Out of Cranbrookpaddocks Sanlucar, by Blackthorn Sea Poacher. Badger is the only stallion out of this dam line that is licensed at present.

Shown in hand by Phillip Ward- Burton from a yearling until 3 years old, Badger has been extremely prolific. Results include :

  • Area 25 1st and champion
  • TSR 1st and champion

Badger was slowly broken in last year by me and went to a couple of shows. He was second in his Equifest class, and qualified for the Picton final this year.

NPS was his first stay away show and he did not disgrace himself when shown in strong company.

Bred by Ann Nicholls of the Bournefield Stud, he was purchased by his current owner as a foal.

Like most stallions, he can have his moments but the behaviour he displays is just bravado. He has never bitten when handled. He is turned out next to geldings and opposite a mare.

He gives a mannerly balanced ride and absolutely loves his work. He has hacked out with other horses and wasn’t bothered by traffic.

The best is yet to come for this boy either at stud or continuing his ridden career as either an entire or he could be gelded at the buyers expense.

This boy has had only the best of care and deserves to go to a loving experienced home. This is an extremely sad sale for all involved, we are all very attached to him. His owner feels he will be wasted in his current home.

I would love to keep Badger to produce, should this be an option. No novices or loans.
