Safe and sensible ISH for loan.
Beautiful, dapple grey rose ISH available on full, permanent loan to a caring and experienced home.
Ex-hunter from Ireland. In the time I’ve had him, we’ve completed several Intro dressage competitions in our yard and done lots of hacking. Happy to hack in company or alone, but alone takes confidence from his rider and therefore not suitable for a novice. He’s bombproof in traffic and noise of all sorts, tractors, vans, cyclists, runners, etc. Goes front or back, has hacked with mares and geldings, not spooky, silly or strong. Can be forward and alert but is very safe and has hacked many times in company with a novice.
Due to mild osteoarthritis in one fetlock and mild kissing spine, I would like him to go to a home where he would be lightly hacked. If there is a school available, he may continue to benefit from light schooling for strengthening. Can test you on the ground so needs firm but caring hand. He needs to know who’s leader and his ground manners are good (he can be very sweet). His temperament great if he’s kept in regular work as he loves his work! He can get bolshy if frustrated and bored.
Currently sharing field with three other geldings of various ages, has been in the field for two months. Happy to supply his regular med and he comes with his full tack and wardrobe. Up to date with farrier, dentist, vaccines.
Other than one episode of mild lameness (when his OA and mild kissing spine were discovered) he has otherwise been very fit and healthy, no other issues.
