Have just joined your group. I have a beautiful white PRE stallion, 158cm and 12 years old. He hasn’t been ridden since the summer because I don’t have the time and also I have developed a bad hip through gaining a lot of weight
He is quite happy in his field alone but I feel he is also wasted. I would like to put him on loan for 6 months or find somebody to ride him.
He is exceptionally kind and gentle, he has never covered a mare and knows his basic 3 gaits and also is very clever. I took him for some dressage training for 3 months to a local school and he was incredibly quick to learn. He has no vices or problems.
He hasn’t seen a lot of traffic, but the few times I have ridden on the roads, he is fine - although the drivers around the small country lanes we have outside Bergerac don’t have much respect for horses unfortunately.
If I found a really good home for him, I would consider selling also.
Let me know if you have any ideas please.
Thank you for your contact and interest. I have not heard anything further from Cathy, so I'm not sure if her friend is still interested. He has never lived with other horses, I don't know how he would behave in a field together with your ex-stallion and females. It would be wonderful though for a good rider like you to ride him, he's very responsive and intelligent (although green). I think you are around 150 kilometers from Bergerac?? I don't have any transport either. Maybe it would be a good idea for us to visit you first - when its convenient with you. Your horses look beautiful, healthy and happy :) which is all I want for my boy.
Happy New Year !!
Ok, that's good, he's looking wonderfully well, he lives out all year with a huge field shelter.
He has a bit of hard food December - March and that's it really :)
Look forward to hearing from you. He really is the kindest horse I have ever known and in
my 40 years of horses, I have owned probably 25 or so. I also have around 10 big bales of hay
that could go with him if you have transportation to take them from here.
p.s. where is she based?
Thanks for your reply, sorry not seen it earlier, been a bit manic up to Christmas.
My email address is email@example.com - you can write to me when convenient.
He did a bit of jumping cross-country with me last year, it was his first experience
and he loved it (only tiny obstacles though). Not sure if he would be suitable to
accompany children on rides - he has not been worked out on the roads much and
certainly not with other horses, except for a few times with an old gelding my
friend had. He was no problem, so it would be up to you to judge this. Where are
you based? I would love for him to have the opportunity to be ridden by an
