Beautiful natured well mannered Shire x Clydesdale: This is an extremely difficult and regretful sale of one of the most cherished and loved horses I have had the delight to call my riding partner over the past 3 to 4 years. "Viewfield Sir Lawrence" aka Larry is an impressive looking, well breed 17hh, 9yr old bay gelding by "Ingelside Dancer" out of a Clydesdale mare.

Having returned to riding following a very lengthy break of 20 years following a traumatic riding accident .., Laz has helped restore my confidence in so many ways but I will always regard myself as a cautious nervous Nellie. This is a genuine honest EOI.

I am a mature lady rider in my mid fifties, knowledgable with horses but would class myself as a kind but firm intermediate rider who believes in positive reinforcement based training, a bit of natural horsemanship, English, Western, dressage, all rolled into one using kind methods of ground and ridden work.
I purchased Larry from a lovely couple in Tasmania as a rising 6yr old. He was bred by "Viewfield " Shires in Tasmania, then sold as a youngster to the previous owners. Over that time Larry had extensive ground work foundation training and desensitisation, ground and riding manners which has helped shape this lovely boys beautiful calm nature. He yields, backs up, and will side pass, neck flexion, stands still to mount, dismount . Lungs very well both ways, tarps, plastic bags, swing the lung rope around his head, around his legs, over his top line..,not a problem. Can be ridden in a rope halter, used by previous owners the Parelee natural horsemanship methods. He has had a further 8 weeks education with a Professional trainer over a year ago to increase his standard of education.

Larry was started with long-reins , harness and is used to winkers by the previous owners,responding well to voice command. He is very good with his feet, picks up on command. Absolutely no issues handling him, very safe & reliable. Larry is one of those horses that just wants to be your mate, he's full of personality and has to have his nose in everything following you around like a big dog, always at the gate to great you. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body,loves to be pampered and groomed. You can crawl all over him,under his belly, slide down his rump, squat around his feathered hooves which are attended to every six weeks. Very strong and hard, barefoot trimmed.

Clean legs, straight movement. No vices. Can throw rugs over in paddock, wash,drench,truck,float. Basically uncomplicated,easy to handle Teddy Bear of a horse. Larry would be suitable as a family horse with older teenagers, leisure/pleasure for trail riding for a mature lady rider like myself. Although he has not been shown by me.., no doubt he would do well particularly in the heavy horse scene, dressage another options. He will not be sold to a jumping home. My preference is to a very kind loving home where he will be well looked after and loved/cherished like he has been use to all his life. He would be suitable for ANYONE BUT NOVICE ! I have ridden Larry a couple of times per week, have long reined him around the yard with no problems. He can be left for periods of time and be the same for me to ride out with no silliness at all. In saying all this he is a huge horse., even I had big confidence issues initially but over time we have become like two peas in a pod.

I am in no hurry to sell, he will only be going to the right caring home. He will not be sold sight unseen. This boys welfare is important to me, a heavy horse lover would be desirable.

I'm happy to include his wardrobe of 7ft seasonal rugs in the sale. Up to date with drenching,6 weekly bare foot trim, drenching, tetanus/ strangles vaccine. Microchipped. More than happy for a pre purchase Vet check at your expense.

Please take note I will not be answering any e-mail enquirers at all. I will discuss over the phone with genuine inquiries about him from 7pm at night. I will not answer phone messages left during the day. So.., if you are interested in viewing Larry or would like further information please call me.
