Heartbreaking sale of the BFG.
DJ is a 10yo British Warmblood who stands at approx. 17.3hh.
A gorgeous coloured whose had everyone from 6yo kids to older ladies wanting to get back into riding. Some people will be put off by his size, but I’m 5’4″ and he’s an angel!
Although a responsive ride, he never bucks or rears. Speed isn’t his forte, however he’s not kick along either.
Flatwork/dressage is his love and strongest discipline, however he hacks and jumps small fence, too. His previous owner competed him up to novice dressage, however he’s only hacked and jumped in last 18 months. He isn’t one to get fresh, so happily has a break and you ride the same horse after a week off. He hacks alone but can be a little spooky. However it’s nothing bad and the more he hacks the better he, is but still can be ridden on loose reins!
He’s looking for a forever home, ideally with someone who wants to stay at low level and enjoy him, do some dressage clinics and be spoilt rotten, which very sadly I’m not in a position to do anymore. Although he’s competed regularly previously, he’s much happier being loved and enjoying a partnership and life.
He does occasionally crib, so I use a little crib box when he’s in stable, but I try and keep him turned out more than in. Happily lives out in summer and as much as possible in winter.
He can be grumpy with rug changes on ground – all will be shown so there’s no hidden surprises – however if he has a haynet or it’s done outside he tends to be fine.
Easy to shoe, load, with vets.I sedate him when clipping, but it can be syringe rather than from the vet.
Full history since birth known and breeder and I’d also like to stay in contact.
No novice owners because he will disrespect you on the ground. No complete novice riders as he’s off the leg and responsive to your seat.
Many many references and videos available. Will only go to right home and I’m in no rush.
It would be a contracted sale and wouldn’t want him passed or sold on, so would come back to me.
This is a very difficult decision so please no time wasters. I’d be happy to help settling in to new home etc. Will come with dressage tack and rugs.
Located in Suffolk.
Please PM me as having huge interest.
