Beautiful Bay TB Gelding looking for 5* Home.
'Benny' is a bright horse, with a great attitude towards his work, always willing to learn.
He has been out of training since a 4 year old, I picked him up straight from the trainers yard and I have owned him the whole time, 8 years in total.

He is a complete star, has excelled in Dressage - Qualified for PetPlan Area Festivals 2015 on our first attempt and finished in the top 10 in both Prelim and Novice sections. Benny is starting to work at elementary level.

I have not been out competing on him since then as I have been concentrating an competing my other horse which I event.
Benny was diagnosed with Lyme Disease (from Ticks) in 2012, he was treated successfully. This has left him quite sensitive - he doesn't like touching poles or have things moving too fast around his feet (sometimes hosing his feet can seen like you are attacking him with a snake!!) For this reason, he no longer jumps as touching a pole resulted in huge diva like dramatics! Benny loves his dressage, his BD record can be checked out on the BD website, he has never been out of the top 10!
He hacks alone or in company, he is 110% in traffic - we hack over motorway flyovers! He can be sharp, but equally lazy - he is not for a Novice or person lacking confidence, that said, he will come out the same after a week off as he would 1 day off.
He is good as gold to catch, for the vet and farrier, i've never had to clip him as he has a beautiful coat - but he is good as gold to trim up with clippers.
I want to event, Benny isn't the horse that i'm going to do that with, I owe it to him to find him an awesome home where he can show off his dancing skills....he may even turn his hoof to showing?! I'm in absolutely no rush to part with him, this is a very tough decision, he will only go to the perfect home. Home 100 times more important than price.

Any question, please please get in touch. I've tried to make this advert as honest as possible in order to find him the very best home I can.
