Benji is currently standing at approximately 146cms but is still showing signs of growth and has changed significantly over the last 12 months. He lives out in the field currently but has been stabled over winter and is pleasant in the stable. He has been well handled by myself and is a friendly character. He loves to be around people. He is good for the farrier and up to date with vaccinations.

Benji has been to 2 shows and took the atmosphere all in his stride and was not fazed by the busy atmosphere. As a 2 year old he was 2nd at Royal Lancashire show and more recently as a 3 year old again he was 2nd at the same show. He has lovely paces and will be sure to go far in the right hands.

Straight limbed, no lumps or bumps, no vices. Has been bitted for in hand bridle but not yet commenced long reining etc. I am not in a rush to sell thus happy to commence the ground work but price will of course increase accordingly.

Only for sale as I show hacks / hunters thus he won’t fit in with the same shows.

No timewasters please. 5* home only.

Can be seen near Preston.
