For Sale £5,000 Bas Van 'T' Hengelhof
Purebred registered Belgian Draft
‘Basil’ is a unique very large horse, bridle size XXXfull to give you an idea. He loves attention and to be groomed and is well behaved for the farrier (unshod). Currently lives out 24/7 however also happy stabled.
He is the ultimate weight carrier, but not a novice ride. He was bought predominantly for RDA, however, he is not suited to the riding school as he does not like being on the lead rein. Basil is still green and will need a home experienced with heavy horses to further his education. He is very intelligent and eager to please, and light on his feet for such a large horse. Walk and trot well
established and starting to maintain an outline. His canter is free moving and forward, we do not have hacking facilities so this is unknown. Currently not in consistent work due lack of time.
He may not be suited for county level showing, due to a previous kick injury where he has some residual swelling around the hock. This causes him no problems with his work and he has been 100% sound, any prospective buyer is welcome to fully discuss history with our vet.
We feel he would enjoy dressage as he is very responsive and forward going. Unfortunately we do not have the time to produce this horse and require a less responsive weight carrier, part exchange considered.
Good to clip, up-to-date wormers & vaccinations, good to load/travel, open to vetting, comes with synthetic dressage saddle and 3 bits, no rugs as he hasn’t needed any.
