16.2hh 12yro gelding. Full history since birth known (breeder owned him until last year). No known injuries. Low mileage, only ever been used as a super safe, steady pleasure horse/ Riding club/ doing the usual pleasure activities. Not been a heavily used competition horse, NEVER RACED or ragged around ever. He's a chunky substantial TB and he is plenty of horse to sit on. (He is literally a Cob in a TBs body).
Fantastic around kids/ dogs/ chickens. Brilliant to hack alone and in company. Is extremely steady, buckle end ride. Good in traffic. Can be left for weeks and months then jumped on. Will turn out with anything and has no vices.
Looks after his rider always. Easy to do in every way. Would make a super safe happy hacker or hunter. Is a good doer so minimal feeding required.
Must be kept shod. Has good feet but has sensitive soles and easily gets grit in them or bruising which has in the past caused an abcess. Hence to be kept shod (even if just in front!).
Does have a flat sarcoid on chest that he's had his whole life and causes zero issues.
Doesn't like horse flies.
This horse spends 90% of his time in my back garden as I know he won't turn up the grass by being an idiot like the others would. The kids love him to pieces.
I don't really want him going to someone who hasn't had horses before sorry. Prefer a knowledgeable home, perhaps for mum to hack out with daughters/ fun rides/ low level shows or for gran to ride. I say low level purely because he's so steady I don't think he's got it in him to become a top class eventer or 1.40 track horse!
