For LWVTB, For Sale £3,000 Victor
Victor is a 17hh Westphalian
He is 14 years old
He is extremely handsome and has great presence.
Victor does not enjoy schooling and is looking for a life as a hacking horse only.
Although Victor doesn’t buck or rear he needs a confident rider if being ridden on his own.
Victor always gets commented on for his looks when out and about.
He is ridden in a simple snaffle.
Victor is currently out of work due to rider expecting a baby in a couple of weeks. Victor would need to be brought back into work through mainly hacking.
He has had shockwave treatment for thickened suspensory ligaments in his hind legs and he has a bit of arthritis in hocks. He doesn’t come up as lame when riding in school he just doesn’t enjoy it and I wouldn’t want him to be made to do something that could make his hind legs worse. Also this is the same reason why I wouldn’t want him jumped. I think he has had a hard life and want him to enjoy the rest of his years.
Stable manners- he is a fidget, doesn’t really enjoy being fussed with would rather just get out. He is better after he has been ridden and will then stand still for longer. He can barge out of his stable if you’re not confident with him telling him to move back.
He needs a confident person who is not going to be scared by him otherwise he will use his size to push you around. At the same time he will walk with me and my three year old to the field and I can put my three year old on him to walk around. It very much depends on the day what type of Victor you are going to get.
