For Sale £3,000 Mr T
Dark Bay 11yr old Irish Sport Horse gelding
Owned for 3yrs but have lost my confidence with him as he can be sharp & spooky but not nasty. Needs a confident rider who’s not afraid to put their leg on.
Lunging him 2/3 times a week to keep him ticking over, not suitable for a novice!
I’ve done online dressage tests with him at intro & 2 Prelims but know that he has so much more to give with a more experienced rider. When I ride him confidently I’ve gained +70% a few times & been reserve champion in a league. Always in the rosettes.
In the past he has done low level eventing, dressage & enjoyed hacking. I haven’t hacked him but know he was good with traffic, not keen on donkeys & better in company.
Not a world beater with height (I’ve lunged him & loose schooled him up to 90cms) but apparently was a machine XC & was told he needs a Pelham for jumping!
Snaffle mouthed otherwise.
He’s up to date with jabs (April), teeth (July), physio (July), saddle fit (Aug) & farrier every 6wks – he has been bare foot since last summer. Just wormed counted & tape worm tested. All clear.
Needs sedating for clipping but I just keep him rugged so doesn’t get too hairy.
In summer prefers night turn out as not a fan of flies
Once he trusts you, he can be quite a character – chatty, lip curling. Loves being groomed. Good to loose school too & does a bit of join up
