15.2HH UPWARDS WANTED FOR FOREVER HOME
Experienced owner/rider seeking a large Palomino, Appaloosa or Dun horse (would consider other coloured horses if they are something different to the usual piebald/skewbald)
Needs to be at least 15.2hh or upwards but nothing too heavy, as we are not fans of heavy horses. So ideally no full cobs, though cob crosses will be considered, and nothing with feathers!
A horse with character and personality is a must, we are not looking for a sit and point riding school plod! So quirks are more than welcomed.
Age and breed are somewhat irrelevant, we are not looking for a world beater or the next Olympic champion, so we are happy to consider any age between 4-17 years old, and any breed will be considered, again as long as he/she is not too heavy.
He/she must be good in all the usual ways, catch/shoe/clip/stable etc and must respect fences. And must not stress if first/last in the field or left alone for any length of time.
MUST hack alone as we tend to do 80% of our hacking alone, but must also be happy to hack in company and be 100% in all types of traffic.
We don’t need to find a horse working at BD medium levels with regards to flat work as we’re more than happy to put work into a horse, as long as he/she has three correct paces we are more than happy to put work in and develop the flat work.
Quirks are not a problem, but nothing dangerous. We don’t mind the odd excited buck or a little bit of fizz etc, but strictly no rearers or bolters.
Medical issues, if disclosed, may not be a problem, as long as the horse is able to undertake the workload comfortably we are happy to consider horses with certain medical issues (we are experts with Navicular) this would need to be discussed at the earliest opportunity.
Ideally to come with full tack and rugs.
Will be used for hacking, schooling, trips to the beach, pleasure rides, and if the right horse comes along, possibly some lower level showing and/or dressage. We are not huge jumpers, so the ability to jump is not high on the list, however popping over the odd log while out on a hack would be nice.
We are offering a permanent, experienced and loving forever home for the right horse, where he or she will want for nothing.
They will be stabled on a small family run yard with year round turnout (in at night during winter, and in during the day in summer if needed) other horses for company, owner living on site and lots of quiet hacking on the doorstep.
References available on request and yard visits are more than welcome.
If you think you may have what I’m looking for, please email in the first instance with details and photographs (if possible) and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Thank you in advance
