I bred Flame out of my old JRN Event pony, he has been home-produced between myself and professionals. By the event stallion Wish Upon A Star (by Gribaldi)
He is very intelligent and talented. However, he is also quirky. I suffer from chronic pain issues which are aggravated by his quirks, so it would be better for both of us for him to find a new rider.
Flame struggles with becoming overwhelmed in situations for example in the warm-up. We have been involved in the BD Quest competition both in a team and individually. We have found he is much happier to just have a walk around the lorry park and then go straight into his dressage test where he can focus. I believe with the right rider he could improve further through a combination of exposure and careful management; however, I am not the right person for this.
At home, Flame enjoys jumping and can move beautifully. Over the last 6 months, I have focused on hacking due to my pain levels. Flame hacks alone or in company as long as he has a confident rider, he enjoys hacking particularly going on new by quiet routes. He copes surprisingly well with ‘’scary traffic’’ such as tractors but struggles with multiple smaller unpredictable things such as scooters/kids. I think with the right person he would love to do beach rides and trips out to the woods and similar.
Flame prefers male riders both under saddle and on the ground. Flame needs a rider who is calm, confident and very competent.
We would consider part loan, full loan, or LWVTB to the right person.
I am happy to answer any and all questions about him via PM or phone.
