Advert Description

It’s with huge regret that I have this beautiful boy offered up for sale. I love this horse to pieces but I feel as though I cannot give him what he needs.
Dave is a very kind sweet natured horse, with a heart of gold. He is 16.1hh, 8 year old bay Tb gelding. He has masses of potential, especially on the flat and with the right rider could easily go up the ranks.
Although, Dave is the typical ex racer and does worry about things so he needs a very calm, kind, confident person. He loves having a routine and is a saint when in full work; he is not the sort of horse that you can pick up and put down. Absolutely no novices please,
Although he has been ridden by novices in the past he would benefit more from someone more experienced. Dave will take time to settle into a new home and can be difficult to handle until he’s settled. Once settled he’s an absolute donkey!
Dave has scope when jumping but he’s very green and unconfident in this sphere although I’ve been working on this and he’s slowly gaining confidence. He has been out schooling and jumped everything that was asked of him!
He’s snaffle mouthed and is not strong on grass/in open space.
He’s good to hack out in company but needs confidence!
Never rears or bolts but has thrown in the occasional excited buck but it’s nothing extravagant.
Dave loves baths and will play with the hose!
He’s perfect for the farrier (recently become barefoot)
We have had issues with loading, although I’ve been working on this and he is now walking straight on the lorry. (I have a Video if this)
He does have 2 small sarcoids, neither of which affect him in any way.
He will come with all his rugs and tack.
Dave does prefer living out but stables fine, when stabled for long periods of time or when stressed he’s been seen to windsuck.
£1700ovno, price is negotiable only to the perfect home!
If you’d like some more information, pictures/videos please email me!
This is a heartbreaking decision and I’m
in no rush for him to go, 5* forever home only! I’m open to a trial at the yard he’s at.
