Part loan, full loan will be considered to the correct person but to stay current yard in Dunnockshaw, Burnley.
Rodger is approx. 15hh, 12 year old black Irish Cob. He has a loving, sweet nature.We are looking for someone who is willing and committed to part loan Rodger 2 or 3 days a week, to stay on his current yard in Dunnockshaw, Burnley. The yard has an extra large indoor area, fabulous hacking, all year turnout and friendly people who are willing to hack. Also an outdoor arena is being built too. Rodger is being put up for loan through absolutely no fault of his own, we are just struggling to ride him enough and give him the attention he needs due to work and university commitments. A weekly financial contribution will be needed.

Rodger is an absolute dream on the ground and will stand all day to be groomed and bathed. He will follow you around all day like a big dog. Rodger is the most kindest, loving horse. He is great for the farrier and is fine to bring in and turn out by himself or with others. Rodger is very healthy and up to date with all his vaccinations and worming etc.

In the school. Although being in the arena and schooling isn’t Rodgers strongest point he still tries his best to please. Due to rider preference and not doing much schooling in his previous home you will find he is unbalanced in the arena but with work this can be put right. We have struggled to keep on top of his schooling due to other commitments. He will walk, trot, canter and jump in the area.

On a hack. I can’t express enough how great Rodger is to hack out. He will hack out by himself with absolutely no worries. Although like most horses he prefers to be in company. Rodger is amazing in traffic with bags of confidence, he has seen all kinds of traffic and hasn’t batted an eyelid. He has also been driven in his previous home but not since he has been with us. He will go, wait and stop whenever he is told to. He is a great horse to build rider confidence when hacking out.

Jumping. Rodger has been to places such as Summerford and Craven with us and loved every minute of it. He jumped everything that was put in front of him ditches, solid fences, water etc. He has never stopped with us and is eager to please. We have also jumped him in the school which he loves, he puts his heart into everything he does and tries his best to please everyone.

We are looking for a rider with confidence and although Rodger can be a novice ride we are looking for someone with abit of experience with horses. In the school he has been known to put in a small cob buck when he gets the wrong lead in canter (nothing unseating). He is genuinely an amazing horse who someone can have so much fun with.
