Unfortunately I have made the hard decision to part with Basil due to my work commitments and Basil’s need to do more.
Basil is a 16.2hh, 8-year-old gelding who retired from racing in 2018.

He has a sweet nature and has good ground manners. Basil enjoys being groomed and is well-behaved for the farrier and vet.
He is good in traffic and hacks alone and in company. Basil loves to learn. He has started to develop some basic flatwork and has recently started to jump which he seems to enjoy. As he is green in both of these areas he is not suitable for a novice.

Basil thrives on a routine. He prefers to be turned out with company but is happy to be stabled alone for short periods.
Basil loads and travels well. He is up to date with his vaccinations, worming, teeth and physio. Basil cannot be turned out with mares. Basil will comes with his full wardrobe. A fun and caring home is most important for this sweet boy.
