Arab X American paint gelding for share-weekdays: Beautiful 7 y/o 15.2hh Arab X American paint horse for share. 'P' is a horse full of character, based in Hartley Wintney, Hampshire who is just coming back into work after a few months off due to mild injury and gastric ulcer diagnosis earlier in the year. He has now made an excellent recovery and is hacking out and has started some light schooling. P is a forward going ride who generally aims to please, but needs an experienced, fair and consistent rider due to his age as he can on occasion be cheeky. Occasionally he can be difficult to handle on the ground at certain times of year due to the sugar in the grass affecting him, but this normally ceases after a period and he goes back to being his usual sweet self.
P spent last summer being professionally schooled by an Enlightened Equitation instructor and has 2 sponsored rides and a local clear round under his belt. I am looking for someone who can ride him during the weekdays over the winter whilst I am at work, to keep him fit. The odd weekend day is also possible. P lives out with one other horse so no chores are required (except for the odd feed depending on time of day you go down). He loves his hacking but can be spooky but will go past scary objects as long as you give him plenty of encouragement. We have a grass school on site with jumps, but there is also an equestrian centre up the road where you can hire their indoor school with lights if you so wish. P enjoys being groomed, treats, scratches, selfies (of himself) kisses and cuddles. On the days you ride he will be yours to do with as you wish (though please take into account he is still getting fit just now), but if you wish to have riding lessons on him it must be with an EE teacher. We have excellent hacking, with or without roadwork, with Bramshill and Hartley Wintney town centre easily reachable. P lives on privately owned, well maintained land with direct access to the Heath, which has a quiet and laid back atmosphere with lots of wildlife and beautiful scenery. Small financial contribution required. Over 16's only and people with riders insurance preferred please. Max weight of rider 10 stone.
