Description
I have made the difficult decision to put my 15hh haflinger gelding up for full loan. He is 16 years old, fantastic with the vet, traffic, clip, with dogs, cows etc, to shoe (he has just fronts) and can be left on his own in the field whilst another horse is out riding. He is a good doer and doesn't need a lot of hay or feed but will need restriction to his grazing. He is a lovely comfortable ride and isn't strong. However he can be silly if ridden in the field and can buck when excited so he isn't a novice ride. He needs regular exercise and is not the type of horse you can just leave in the field as he gets bored and then becomes naughty, so a busy life of riding and possibly competing - I haven't done any with him - would probably be perfect. He isnt suitable for hunting.
He is a chatty and very friendly horse who will follow you around the field and he gets on well with other horses once settled. He would need strong fencing - good electric as he has broken fencing whilst either scratching or wanting grass. He currently lives out 24/7 which he prefers.
I have successfully ridden him and lead my 9 year old daughter on her pony from him and he was brilliant. He thrives with work hence his need to go somewhere busy.
This is a hard decision so he will only go to a 5* home. He needs a knowledgeable home as he can be dominant on the ground as he will test you until he works out who is the boss. There is nothing nasty about him at all, he just needs to be understood. I just don't currently have the time to give him and he is bored and being wasted in the field.
Please email for more info. Happy for him to move yards.
