ABOUT US:

https://britishthoroughbredagency.co.uk/about-us

GENRAL NOTES: 

This 3 year old gelding is by far the most impressive horse we have had the pleasure to rehome! 

Mawgan is a very impressive horse with the mindset of a champion. He has no vices, clean legs with a temperament second to none! 

A real good mover and showing fantastic ability over his fences. Mawgan will most certainly be one for the 4yo classes next year and will event with ease. 

He has passed a 5 stage vetting on the 13th June 2021, it has been noted that he has a wart on his neck which cannot be confirmed weather it is a sarcoid or a wart but it has been unchanged for 2 years now. Refer to pictures

He is a get on and go type, Ben has a scar on his off fore joint and a bump on the side of his knee from years ago, all superficial and of no consequence.
