Very sad sale after 3 years of a much-loved schoolmaster event horse that has safely taken my daughter round BE90’s, numerous SJ and dressage wins and qualified for PC champs eventing and dressage being individually placed each time.

He has evented up to Novice in his day and is a beautiful safe ride and has taught my daughter and previous owner how to event. We are only his third owners (second home) and I know his full history from when he arrived from Poland as a 3-year-old.

Only for sale as my daughter has moved up a level and he is wasted at the moment, I really want to find him his forever home.

Last year he was diagnosed with mild asthma which is managed with steamed hay and inhalers in the middle of the summer, this does mean we are looking for a low-level competition home for him to go to.

I feel he would be brilliant for a mature rider or mother/daughter share to take to dressage comps, riding club activities, camps, hacking etc and we really are looking for a home for life. He would be best suited to a yard at someone’s home or smaller livery yard and he must have sole turnout.

He really is very safe to ride and he is polite and knows his job, always in a snaffle, so if you are looking for a smart schoolmaster, he is the one for you. However, he does have some quirks on the ground! He is very mouthy to turn out, he doesn’t go for you but likes to grab his leadrope so needs an experienced person to turn him out and he can be a bit grumpy to tack up but his ridden behaviour has always massively outweighed this.

I will only sell him to a home that is 100% correct for him, if I don’t find somewhere he can stay with us but I want him to have the attention and love he deserves. This is a very genuine sale and I will be 100% honest about any questions asked, he has been my daughter best friend and I have never worried for a second when she is riding or competing him. I have ridden him a lot myself and he is very easy to ride into a contact and can see a stride into a fence himself a mile away.

Homes will require references and will be vetted, no joy riders or timewasters please. If you are interested, please apply via the website.

Price is negotiable as the right forever home is much more important
