Beautiful gentleman ex- competition horse for loan
- British Warmblood
- Dark brown
- 12 years
- 16.3 hands
16.3hh 12 yr old stunning gentle gelding, compactly built, full of presence. Very well schooled, a complete pleasure in and out the stable. Now requiring a hacking home for his retirement years. Previous life a show jumper, he now needs a more leisurely companion than myself.
This horse is very affectionate and tactile. Superb to hack, open gates, great in traffic, fantastic in company or equally lovely on his own. The sort of horse you don’t want to get off of at the end of a ride! Extremely comfortable.
Very sad decision to re-home, but I enjoy my competing and his days of competition are now behind him. He has had surgery on his suspensory ligaments and is on a Bute substitute to control arthritis. He relishes his hacking and really enjoys his work. Highly suited to accompany nervous young horses/riders.
This horse has been there, done that and will give much happiness and confidence. Approved home only. This horse must go to a loving home. He is treated /spoken to like a baby and I dearly wish for that environment to continue for him.
Applicants ideally within 50miles of his location.
As he is a former competition horse, hence exceptionally well mannered but not for a novice rider. He is very responsive and needs someone who is an accomplished rider, under 12 stone, light with their aids with an independent seat and soft hands.
