Frank is a very well put together boy, he stands at 16.1 and is only 3 years old so I think we can say he will probably make the 16.3 height, possibly 17 hands, he is the most amazing striking colour which will stand out from the crowd.
Frank was in training to race but in that time the trainer realised he was going to be too laid back so he never got to the track, he retired sound and stable vice free, he has clean legs his one blemish is a crack in his hind hoof, but my farrier is working on this and is confident with correct shoeing this will resolve itself, he is happy to speak with any potential buyers and their farriers if required.
Since Frank came to us he has been doing lots of hacking, meeting all sorts of things, cars, lorries, pheasants, Pidgeon's, cyclists you name it, he has taken it all in his stride, he will look at things for the first time and then is ok with it, if a pheasant jumps out of the hedge he will as any 3 year old, jump but doesn't then whip round he genuinely gets a fright, very honest boy.
Frank is walk, trotting and cantering around the areana and 9 times out of 10 will strike off on the correct lead, he is a naturally well balanced horse and has nice paces, he doesn't yet work in a consistent outline but with only being 3 we haven't forced him.
Frank has been trotting over coloured poles and started to do small jumps which he is starting to make a nice shape over.
Last weekend Frank completed a 2 hour fun ride, there were approx 20 other horses and he proved to be safe and sensible.
Frank is good to catch, box shoe, we haven't clipped him yet, and he was ok ish to pull his mane.
I think Frank has the makings of a really nice horse, he has the let's just do it attitude and I think this will see him far in life.
With franks age we do not think he should be sold to any novice or inexperienced riders as he is at a crucial part of his education and has been doing so well, no loans or payment plans.
