Advert Description

13 year bay 16.1 hh ISH gelding. We have decided to put our lovely boy up for sale. No fault of his own but work commitment, other horse and my partner lost of confidence in horse riding forces this sad sale. Jimmy hasn’t done much the last 4 months due to above reasons but my partner who is a novice got on him after 2 months off in the field and he was foot perfect. Not silly or fizzy. However Jimmy is not a complete novice ride as he’s a forward going horse ( not strong) when out and about.Hes been lightly hacked out and lunged to tick him over. He’s been out hunting, done hunter trials, funrides, showjumping ( up to 90 cm), dressage ( intro and prelim) and XC with myself. He hasn’t done much schooling due to my partners lack of interest in this department so mainly been a happy hack. Jimmy would benefit to go to an experienced rider that can either use him as a happy hack or school him and use him as an all rounder. He is 100% safe in traffic and used to the heaviest of traffic. Good for the farrier, vet and dentist. He can be a bit silly to clip but will let you do it. He hasn’t got a thick coat so doesn’t really need to be clipped. Hacks out alone or in company. Doesn’t bite, rear, kick or buck. Up to date with vaccination and worming. He does wear a nose net in the summer as sensitive to insects and rapeseeds. We have owned him for 3 1/3 years and he’s never been sick or sorry.It’s a very hard decision but he’s wasted in a field doing nothing. I’m trying to be as honest I can and expect the same back so please no time wasters, dealers or day dreamers. He’s a lovely boy that deserves a 5 * home. Please ring or pm for more details. Price reflects that he hasn’t done much recently. £1500 including tack. Wolverhampton area.
