WANTED Kind and Intelligent Horse Sought for Hacking and Schooling

WANTED Kind and Intelligent Horse Sought for Hacking and Schooling


Ref #: 252746
  • Kind and sane with a good brain
  • Kind and sane with a good brain

Hello,

Firstly, let me say that I am aware that such horses don't often look for new homes ( being absolute stars that they are), though occasionally they do; I had a privilege of owning one previously, and I am prepared to wait for the right 'person'.

I am looking for a mature, well trained, kind horse to go on solo and group hacks as well as the occasional lesson/clinic. Doesn't have to be a world beater, though I would appreciate an ability to perform some low to mid level lateral work. Does not need to jump at all as I have no interest in that, other than perhaps a small pop when hacking.

Main attributes:
MATURE - golden oldies definitely not discriminated against if in decent health, nothing younger than 9

GOOD CHARACTER: kind, safe and sane disposition, I appreciate that horses are horses, and can put up with an occasional buck, however, if there's ANY history of bolting, rearing, nappiness or excessive spookiness then it's a no no.

MUST be totally ok to leave yard and hack solo, this is non negotiable

Controllable in open spaces and in larger groups, fully operational breaks.

GENUINE- the type of horse that loves to get it right' and works with rather than against the rider, again, I appreciate it takes time to build a proper partnership and I am willing to put time and effort into this.

OK not ridden everyday as I have other commitments

As a super EXTRA bonus, the type of horse you'd feel safe to put a child on even if only for a little mooch around.

What I am open minded about:

- Gender, colour, breed, height (though no less than 14.2 please, and I do have a soft spot for a gentle giant)
-Health: I recognise many horses will have some minor issues but I would expect the seller to be fully transparent about it and I will vet, take bloods and have a professional have a look and a sit anyway.. but for example, a mild COPD would be fine with me.
- I treat horses as individuals, so some personality quirks can be accommodated, though this would need to be discussed in detail, the horse needs to be safe enough on the ground that I could let my 8yo be around it, help with stable chores etc.

What I offer:
A responsible, kind, quiet and sympathetic rider/owner. I have experience of horse ownership, which included a serving stallion, however, I then had a long break from horses and only got back into riding 2 years ago with a last year being mostly a write off, hence I would classify myself as a confident and competent novice rider but an experienced and confident handler.

I can offer a forever home/good retirement to the right horse, I do not sell on oldies.

The horse would be on a full or assisted livery with plenty of professional support if needed.

If that sounds good enough, and you are tentatively thinking of finding a new home for you older, experienced mount, or you have such gem sitting idle because you/your kid just lost interest, please get in touch.

I am currently in London, however, moving to East Renfrewshire this summer. Have a decent budget for that 'perfect' horse.
