16hh 11yr old chestnut tb gelding by Generous. No wetherbys passport but full history known and never raced. Backed and ridden away but green for his age. Will pop a fence and enjoys doing so. Sensible and smart horse who would excel in riding club activities, hacking or hunting. Prefers to hack out in company but will go alone. Perfect to handle in and out of the stable. Has been ridden by children before (previous owners grandchildren). Sold from field due to my health condition but he can be tried as he is safe to ride after time off. I’m planning to start hacking him out once or twice a week and then take him out for a couple of hours hunting over the next few weeks, my health and time allowing.
I know his full history. I haven’t tried loading him in the last 3 years since he’s been with me. I also have never needed to clip him so can’t comment on what he would be like. He is very good to hack in company but when he goes out alone he can be rather lacking in forward nature. He does not buck or rear or nap but likes to go slowly or stop and have a look at something scary. He does go out alone though. With consistent work this would change as he just lacks a bit of confidence in himself but by no means is he silly. He’s good with traffic but haven’t passed much heavy machinery if I’m honest.
