16.3hh tbx 11 year old black gelding. Jack is our homebred horse and has a struggled to stay sound over the years, due to arthritic changes. He is lucky that his mum and dad have given him the best veterinary care! He is suitable for hacking only and possibly some low level dressage. He has previously been used for high level jumping, but we have come to realise that he’s no longer suited to this career due to his clinical condition. He needs to be ridden regularly and kept in a routine to keep him behaving well. He can be a tricky what-sit and although loving is also sometimes arrogant and the leader of the pack, hence only confident and experienced riders are suitable. He has bucked and messed around when allowed. Once in a routine of regular exercise he is a lovely ride, excellent in traffic and to ride alone / in company. Excellent to load and travel. Unsure if a person exists that is confident, very experienced but only wants a hacking horse, but if this sounds like you, please get in touch. Can stay at present yard (although no school and not great hacking), or happy to consider local rehoming, ideally within 2hrs of his location. Owners will continue to cover certain vet treatment within reason, details to be discussed.
