EXPERIENCED EVENT HORSE WANTED

Safe, kind schoolmaster wanted for teenage girl

Ref #: 203767
  • 15.3hh - 16.1hh, 8 -13 years old, gelding preferred
  • Mainly double clear BE record to Novice / 1* / 2*
  • Kind horse (no bucking, rearing or napping)
  • 15.3hh - 16.1hh, 8 -13 years old, gelding preferred
  • Mainly double clear BE record to Novice / 1* / 2*
  • Kind horse (no bucking, rearing or napping)

I am looking for my daughter's first horse after five years with her 14.1hh competition pony. She has been to the Pony Club Champs, NSEA Champs (eventing, SJ & JAS), Hickstead and Royal Windsor and is keen to continue moving up through the levels in eventing (U18, Pony Club Intermediate and Open teams etc). Her weakest phase is show jumping so we need a horse that is neat, careful and forgiving of the odd miss!

She loves XC but I would like a horse that has been there and done it so, as the courses become more technical she is riding something that helps her out if needed. A horse that doesn't lose its temper or get upset if she doesn't get him right every time. My daughter is happy to put the work into dressage and we have an excellent trainer so something that needs work on the flat is fine. I don't want anything with a huge, scopey jump or big extravagant paces as this will make the already difficult transition to horses more of a challenge. My daughter has also been told she has a 'hot bottom' so nothing too bloody or excitable.

Perhaps a horse that has reached its potential or an older horse that is looking for a quieter life at lower grades (Novice / Intermediate). Either way - a calm disposition and sane head is a must!

We can offer the horse we buy a very loving, knowledgeable home where our horses come first. It would need to be happy on a quiet yard (of two!). They are turned out in a field every day even in winter but are brought in at night. During the hot summer days they are brought in during the day away from the sun and flies.

They have a varied life with hacking (there are a group of friends who all have horses in the village so long hacks with lots of chatting is a regular thing!), trips to the gallops as well as lots of lessons away from home with both the Pony Club as well as regular trainers.

Email contact preferred initially with photos and videos.

Loving 5* forever home (with more carrots than even Rudolph enjoyed this Christmas) awaits.... he must:

- Be immaculate with hounds even if they decide to pass underneath his tummy and between his front legs.
- Open a gate quicker than the blink of an eye, with a gentle nudge to assist his rider.
- Enjoy turning away from the field without hesitation, as well as standing on point - this makes him feel important and as if he is doing a very important job.
- Jump trappy places with spring and enthusiasm, but think hedge jumping is for larkers.
- Know that broken down walls are for clambering over one foot at a time.
- Have five legs when it's a bit greasy under foot.
- Think galloping is for losers as his big armchair canter covers the ground with ease.
- Love quads, as he knows that's where the terriers are, and he loves terriers.
- Queue immaculately - he'd rather let all the idiots go.
- Have hunted with big fields, but doesn't hot up, again he thinks they're all idiots and beneath him.
- Has previously shown/evented but his calling in life is hunting.
- Be great to pull, clip, plait as he takes his appearance and turnout seriously.
- Hack out alone and in company - can lead/ride him in a head collar past a combine harvester.
- Enjoy and welcome unintelligent dogs entering his stable to share his breakfast.
- Enjoy huge amounts of fuss and attention, after all this is what he deserves.

If this special person is out there and is within 2 hours of SN16 or NN6, please WhatsApp/text pics and videos first and then we will call you back. Big budget for this saint.
