Magestic Dane (Ralphy)
8yr old 17.1hh thoroughbred gelding.
Ralphy is for sale as I do not have the time to ride.
Easy to float, shoe, rug, tack up, handle etc.
Ralphy is currently out of work and will require a solid few weeks to bring his mind back to the job. He has been enjoying a very long holiday for approx 2 years (had kids), with the odd ride here and there. Unfortunately, I have not been able to get on top of brining him back into work as I can't be consistent so he has picked up a few little tricks during our rides. He has started kicking up and running out from under me. (he has never unseated me, I believe this is because he is playing rather than trying to get me off). It's guardually become a habit for our rides and this has become a problem for me as I don't have the facilities with good ground to give him some work to change his behavior. (He is just fresh and needs work). Prior to his holiday I could happily lope around the paddock on a long rein, he was calm and confident and always willing to please. Prior to his break i would have described him as a quiet horse that you can do anything with. I had planed to work through this with him and bring him back into work and enjoy many more years with this guy, who I do really love. But as time goes by I realise that this is not my reality anymore and it's heartbreaking.
Ralphy has a basic education and prior to his holiday was always a pleasure to ride and teach new things. He enjoys being in work and i had planned to ride casually in dressage and follow the kids around on him. He is not a horse for a beginner rider and will need an experienced rider to bring him back into work. I truly enjoyed riding this horse prior to his break, but now it's just to much work, and I'm time poor.
Ralph is in paddock condition and currently under transition to barefoot, with scoot boots and pads for the first 2 weeks after a trim. These will come with him if you decide to continue with life without shoes.
While Ralph is a problem pony at present he will only go to an approved him where I feel comfortable that the horse and rider will be a match. I guenuinly loved riding this horse and know that he will be a pleasure to disvover for someone in the future.
There is so much more to discuss with this horse, so if you are interested in opening your home to a lovely big guy then plesse get in touch.
