I have come to the decision of part loaning my 5year old gelding due to having college full time. I arrive home late
after being at college and this makes it difficult for me to give him the amount of care that he will need as we approach winter.
I would need someone to see him 2-3days a week to make sure he still gets all the attention he needs and deserves. This includes general care like mucking out,grooming,bringing in/turning out etc and riding/lunging. However, he is young and is still being brought on.
Ideally I would like someone who is experienced with care and riding. This is only because he is young and will try and get away with things when he can(He is never nasty,just clumsy and will try to get his own way like a typical 5 year old child!),however, this is not a necessity as I can help along the way.
There is a floodlit arena with poles and jump stands, a turnout menage for a little leg stretch if its too wet for the field,hacking nearby (5pits trail. However,he hasn't been hacked out before so this would be a possibility further down the line) and tackroom with a kitchen which is perfect for making hot drinks when it's cold!
He currently has a field all to himself and he is an absolute angel to bring in and turn out whether the horses across from him are turned out or not. He is great to ride,just young but he hasn't ever done anything silly with me,other than the odd excited bunny hop when going into canter. He's a very good boy but because he's young he will sometimes need putting in his place and bossing around,just little things like rubbing his head on you or trying to shove you out of the way if he can see his hay. He never does this in a nasty way,he just has no awareness of personal space!
If you think that he sounds like something you'd be interested in,please don't hesitate to message me with any questions!
