Off the track Thoroughbred retired Sept 2019. Spelled until May 2020. Has been in light inconsistent work since then. Mainly doing trail riding.
15.2h 8yr old Gelding. VOUCH FOR ME by Reset (Zabeel / Sir Tristram) 16 starts 3 wins plus placings. Sound.
Would suit eventing, dressage, jumping, trail riding or Allrounder. Not a beginners horse as he needs guidance and retraining. Has no nasties but would benefit from a confident rider who can teach him with patience and understanding that all he has ever known is trackwork and racing. Has more go than woah, very forward but easily controlled and knows stop, just a typical OTT who likes to move his feet. No buck rear or bolt. Has a soft snaffle mouth. Needs a light handed rider, he gives to little aid and does not need to be held or carried. Just needs someone who is willing to re train him and teach him transitions. Hasn’t done flatwork in a few months, but was coming along nicely and comes onto the bit and collects with little aid and no holding. Currently out of work.
Very brave horse, no spook. Nothing phases him has had cars, trucks, motorbikes, bikes, dogs, doesn’t even flinch. Walks through knee high water and over wooden bridges no worries. Has jumped a few logs out with enthusiasm. Was pointed at a few jumps and showed great enthusiasm, I just lack confidence and havnt taken it further.
Has a few quirks while being saddled, was head shy when I got him. Seems as though he was smacked around and can get defensive if not handled with patience. Has never bitten or kicked, just pulls faces. When in work not girthy and no faces, has been treated for ulcers as a precaution. He wants to build trust with his person and then he gives you 110%. Is currently getting professional re-training once a week, on the ground and just starting under saddle. (Confidence building and building trust in his rider and aids, not fast tracked forced training)
