Please read add first.
I originally brought des for the higher heights but I feel he's not upto that any more.
He has low grade kissings i have xrays etc majority of horses his age do have kissings due to degenerative because of age and can be easily managed with a good work routine, bone supplements and nutrition. Now this doesn't affect his soundness as he had a vet check and trotted up sound, but I won't be advising him sold as a high showjumping horse more a low level horse for a bit of everything. He would be a lovely dressage horse.
Des is well educated on the flat with flying changes, laterals etc.
He requires a experienced rider as he is quirky can get strong in showjumping at times tho ive only ever ridden him in a NS snaffle. He requires someone who is firm but gentle and understanding. He is the most beautiful natured horse.
Ideally would be great for a keen teenager who loves to do a bit of everything.
Unfortunately he has been sitting in the paddock now for a year so I'm selling him out of work and will require muscle build up and slow rehab program due to lose of muscle in paddock.
Its a shame to see him wasting in a paddock when he just loves to be worked and be part of something.
Des is known to stop occasionally and can get strong in the showjumping into jumps so will require a confident rider.
If anyone is interested please let me know 🙏
I've owned des for nearly 2 years, currently in paddock condition and will need TLC (teeth, feet needs front shoes atleast etc)
I don't have the time nor money with 4 other horses to keep him and I can't keep expecting my disabled mum to look after him and to be honest it's unfair on him.
