15.3, 13 year old, registered sports horse gelding, now available for Loan. ‘Buddy’ is now looking for a new rider as both my daughters will be away attending university in September.
We have owned Buddy for the past 5 years when we bought him for my nervous 15 year old daughter. Since then
he turned his hoof to dressage, eventing, hacking, and South Staffs Pony Club rallies – competing at Pony Club Novice (90cm +). However, in the past year he has been diagnosed with arthritis, this is well managed and currently it is only stopping him from jumping – something we hope to reintroduce soon.
At the moment he is working beautifully on the flat in both a ménage and open fields, as well as being regularly hacked on the road and through the fields. We are looking for a competent rider, as he is not a novice ride due to him being forward going. He is good with traffic and hacks out regularly in a snaffle. When out competing in dressage he always does a lovely test and comes in the ribbons.
Buddy loves attention and will stand to be groomed, bathed and messed with all day. We are looking for someone who is competent and experienced around horses who is able to continue providing him the quality of care he is used to. Buddy is to stay on his current private yard near Abbots Bromley, Rugeley, with lots of off-road hacking and farmland to ride on. There would also be transport available to the right rider for any competitions, fun rides etc. He’s a lovely natured horse who’s just too good to waste in a field, we want someone who can love him as much as we do.
Lots more pictures available on request.
