PLEASE READ THE BOTTOM BEFORE MESSAGING ME!!
I am looking for a show jumper to compete on that could take me to the next level of show jumping. I am currently jumping my mare at about 2"9 however I have jumped up to about 3 foot before now and once up to about 1.10m, unfortunately she is now towards the end of her career so I am on the hunt for another horse. I would like a horse that has been brought in to training but still needs that bit more experience for me to bring on and hopefully learn something new. I go to a riding school about 5 mins away and my trainer is very experienced in training horses so I know I can always get help if necessary however I don't want to start a horse from scratch as I don't have that much experience. I do on the other hand know I can train a horse as my mare has never gone in a trailer first time very well so I have been training her on my own to go in without having to force her and so far it has been going very well.
I am looking for a horse at around the 16hh marker as my mare stands at about 14'2hh and i am growing out of her as I am quite tall. The colour and breed isn't and issue but I would like something around the age of 6-9 if possible but no older than about 12.
when it comes to traveling I would like something that would ideally travel in both a box and trailer comfortably and safely, however we are hoping to get a box soon so it wont be much of a problem if they aren't great in the trailer. It would be better if they can travel alone as my mare isn't perfect in the trailer(she doesn't try to bite the other horse but she does stomp her feet a bit when we go around corners but she doesn't do anything to endanger another horse.)
I am training her but we are not sure what she is scared of so it is a bit of trial and error at the moment so for all we know she could be perfectly fine with a companion in there. This is why I'd prefer one that is good alone.
I don't mind something that just wants to be left alone with other horses and doesn't want a fuss, however I would like to be able to tack and groom easily without any issues like kicking or biting, a fig it bum is fine as my mare cant stand still. ??
Finally I would like to mention that I am currently doing my GCSEs so I understand if you believe your horse would be better suited to someone who may have more time for another horse. However I do think I am capable of looking after two horses as I have quit all my other hobbies to focus on riding and my education.
Thank You for taking the time to read this.
I hope you find the right home for your horse.
