For LWVTB, For Sale £1,750 Betty
Betty (Leaton Moonshine) is absolutely stunning, a real head-turner who draws compliments from everyone who meets her. She is 7 yrs old but is still very green for her age. I’ve owned her for the past year, when i bought her she had only started ridden work in the school for couple months. Has been professionally schooled for 6mths and has really come on. Not a novice horse.
Absolute princess – loves a fuss, very affectionate, would suit someone who has lots of time to spend being with her! Very strong bonding instinct, really makes you feel loved as her owner!
Being sold as a project for the winter – she is being brought back into work after injury (collateral ligaments in front feet). Have followed rehab plan to the letter (laser therapy, cartrophen, tildren, walking program, bar shoes), now passed as sound and starting trot work (4mths post injury).
She is being hacked daily in company, have started solo hacking and is good but still needs confidence building. I bought her to bring on to event up to BE100+, has a fantastic jump, very brave and scopey BUT due to her injury I dont want to push her through the rigours of eventing. She may be able to event in the future but not being sold as a jump horse as I cant guarantee she will stay sound (vet is positive about her chances of being able to do everything work-wise but I am not willing to risk it, hence will not be sold to an eventing/sj home).
Will make someone a fantastic horse as a hack/low level all rounder. Carries herself in a beautiful natural outline, would do a lovely dressage test.
She had a bib clip last year but not currently clipped due to her workload, therefore dont know what she would be like to fully clip. Needs to be sedated for teeth. Can be a fidget for farrier, especially back feet, but has been getting better each time.
Happy to provide Vet details so disclosures can be verified.
She is a very smart horse so needs confident, consistent handling otherwise she will try and dominate you.
Very good doer. Very easy to catch (comes to call), will do anything for food!
Open to offers and a short LWVTB period for the right home.
