11yo Thoroughbred Gelding
Due to starting uni this year and not having time for him, I have come to the heartbreaking decision to sell my gorgeous boy blue. He was my first horse and I have had him for three years. Blue is very easy to have around and is perfect for the farrier, dentist, clipping and floating. He can get attached to other horses if he’s paddocked with them, however gets over it fairly quickly once you take him away. He also does need to be fully shod as his bare feet are quite brittle.
Blue is a very chill ride and very safe, I’ve had many friends and family ride him that have never ridden before and he’s been more than happy to plod along. He’s very relaxed to ride doing flatwork and is definitely more woah than go. He has jumped up to 1.10m however is happiest around the 80cm mark and definitely gets his confidence from the rider while jumping. Eventing is what I’ve done most with him and he’s comfortable doing 65cm however definitely has the potential to step-up to 80cm, this just hasn’t been an interest for me. He absolutely loves water and loves swimming. Blue is a snaffle mouth in all phases and has very good brakes. I have also done a three-day hack on him which he enjoyed, although he definitely prefers being up the front of the line.
Blue loves going out and this is my reason for selling him, I would 100% be keeping him if it wasn’t for uni as I just don’t want him sitting in the paddock and would love to see him out and about. Blue would be best suited to a teen looking for a first hack or even an adult returning to riding. Home is far more important to me than money and I would love to keep in touch with whoever he goes to as I really do love this horse. Will not sell sight unseen. Price is negotiable and I also have videos available on request. If you want to come ride him or want any more information please flick me a text :)
